Starting off with our first 2011 headliner, we’re thrilled to confirm Suede as part of this year’s festival bill. The band, along with charismatic frontman Brett Anderson, will conquer the main stage with their greatest hits. We’re also looking forward to Primal Scream celebrating the anniversary of Screamadelica with us. The band’s legendary third album turns 20, and to mark the occasion, Primal Scream will perform the album in its entirety. Ambitious indie lovers are bound to be delighted with scheduled performances by Beirut, Mogwai, Battles, The Drums, Hercules And Love Affair, dEUS, Health, and Wire. And if all of that still isn’t enough to whet your appetite then perhaps Santigold, Bodi Bill, Rainbow Arabia, Buraka Som Sistema and Yelle might just hit the spot. The art of electronica is represented with the masters of downbeat,Kruder & Dorfmeister as well as Apparat Band, Pantha du Prince, Diplo, A-Trak, Boy George (DJ set), Skrillex, DJ Hell, Brodinski, Andy Butler (DJ set), Jimmy Edgar, Marc Vedo and Mount Kimbie. All this plus the Mobile Disko is about to ride across the airfield with it’s full on beats once again and Berlin’s burgeoning creative scene will be represented by our Hangar Art Trail, Berlin Record Label and Design Market. There are still over 40 more acts to be announced in the coming weeks along with a full running order divided by stages and venues – watch this space.
The extensive event will be organised by Berlin Festival GmbH & Co. KG together with Festival Republic Ltd. Besides festivals in the UK and Ireland such as Reading/Leeds, The Big Chill, Latitude and Electric Picnic, the UK company organises open-air events in Norway and the United States; fantastic prospects for Berlin Festival 2011.
