Event Details

Achtung! Achtung! Mini-Festival

*** CELEBRATE 5 YEARS OF THE PARTY WITH THE MUSIC NOBODY LIKES***

...with a line-up to make you cry, praise the lord, and kick in your sleep

Xarah Dion

Xarah Dion is a bit of a legend. Playing everything live onstage surrounded by synths, singing in a dreamy voice while keeping everything nicely danceable - in a very cold wave fashion. She has toured extensively in Europe and beyond and played all of the scene's major Festivals and Parties from TIQ in Berlin, to Kalabalik in Sweden, W Festival in Belgium... Now we are super lucky to have her at Electrowerkz.

Le Prince Harry

Le Prince Harry from Belgium have been around since 2006. Their synth punk delivery is loud, chaotic and sweaty. They describe their music as a fantastic door leading straight to a Forbidden Zone, where the king, the queen, the dwarf, the naked girls and the Lord Of Darkness, all high on steroids, their eyes bulging and their bodies covered in sweat, turn the 6th dimension into a backroom of seeping walls and saturated atmospheres of poppers' fumes. About time the UK gets a whiff of that!!!

Mala Herba

What does witchy minimal wave sound like? In the night Mala Herba transforms into a curvy, lascivious witch connecting love for the vintage sound of synth-pop and darkwave with creative interpretation of ethnomusicological archives and lyrics in Ukrainian and Polish. Mala Herba has toured all over Europe and played with the likes of Drab Majesty and Kaelan Mikla. Now the UK will fall for the spell. There has to be gated reverb on the snare!

Cheshire Cat (the Bouncing)

The band is another project of Claudine Sabatel Sourdeval of Dear Deer and Guerre Froide fame. Their howling minimalistic icy batcave sound hits you right where it hurts! And it feels fantastic. They shared bills with Fangs on Fur and Some Ember and it's about time we got a slice of it too.
