Taking place early next year, Berlin's experimental-leaning CTM Festival has revealed the first wave of acts slated to perform at its 16th annual gathering. Among the names revealed today are veteran UK duo and recent XLR8R podcast contributors Simian Mobile Disco, Bristol production pair Emptyset (who will premiere its "Signal" performance at the festival), and prolific electronic musician Alec Empire, who will premiere his "Low on Ice" A/V show, a collaboration with visual artist Zan Lyons. In addition, acts like Gazelle Twin, Klara Lewis, and cosmic synth specialist Craig Leon have also added to the bill of the upcoming festival.
Taking place from January 23 to February 1, the festival will present its performances at a number of Berlin clubs and cultural institutions including Berghain, HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Kunstquartier Bethanien, Stattbad, and Astra.
