An event series whose roots reach back to the early '80s, Berlin Atonal was relaunched last year, taking over a disused power plant in central Berlin for five days of performances and installations. Now, the festival has announced the initial line-up for its upcoming 2014 run. Set to take place this August, Berlin Atonal will feature performances from Tim Hecker (pictured above), Modern Love mainstays Andy Stott and Miles Whittaker (under the guise of their Mille + Andrea collaboration), as well as a rare performance from storied UK drum & bass outfit Source Direct. More artists will be announced in the weeks ahead, and the event will also feature a number of afterparties, including one curated by Bristol's Subtext label with DJ sets by James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas (a.k.a. Empytset), PAN's Bill Kouligas, and others.
Taking place from August 20 to August 24 in the multi-leveled, multi-staged Kraftwerk Berlin venue (a.k.a. the repurposed power plant alluded to earlier), the rest of Berlin Atonal's so-far announced line-up can be found here, where further details of the festival are also available.
