This August sees the return of the legendary Berlin Atonal festival. Originally founded in 1982, the focus of the festival is innovative sonic and visual arts. Revolutionary acts such as Psychic TV and Einstürzende Neubauten were some of the early performers. 2013 saw a relaunch of the festival in a massive abandoned power plant in Berlin-Mitte. The 2014 edition looks to carry the flag quite well as organizers have booked Cabaret Voltaire, Ensemble Modern + Synergy Vocals, Donato Dozzy and several newer acts, such as my personal favorite, Headless Horseman. This is a can’t miss event for fans of cutting edge sound, art and design and my only wish is that this was being held during my trip to Berlin.
