SmS#57: Ekko Festival

22 Sep

Bergen’s annual electro extravaganza, Ekko Festival is once again upon us. The event is set to take place at a few different venues across the city (Landmark, USF Verftet and Vamoose) from Friday the 23rd of September and spread over seven nights ending in a post-party on the 15th of October.

Here’s a quick summary of the nights that just cannot be missed:

This years line-up is rather good, starting this Friday (23/9) featuring SmS favourites Ungdomskulen, who will be playing their Gimme Ten record in its entirety (all 10 minutes of it!), Bergen female duo Machine Birds and Bolton/Berlin electro-soul in the form of Planningtorock. Should be a good night.

Both Saturdays on the agenda are pretty much saved primarily for the D.J’s. This Saturday (24/9) sees city regular Bjørn Torske, German house legend Isolee and Ekko’s own DJ’s including Emilio Sanhueza lighting up Landmark.

Then on Friday the 30th is time for the big guns! Put Your Hands Up For Neo Tokyo (PYHUFNT) will be testing out new material for our pleasure, Casiokids will be doing more of the same as their new album is very close to release, ambient R&B from Manchester in the form of Holy Other and Kristiansund kraut-rockers 120 Days hit USF Verftet.

Not bad at all! I’ll see you there people! Click here to buy tickets.
