Berlin Atonal 2018

  • Kraftwerk Mitte Köpenicker Strasse 70 10179 Berlin (map)

Berlin Atonal is an impressive music festival located in the spacehall of Kraftwerk Mitte. Berlin Atonal is a festival for sonic and visual art with two distinct stages, first running between 1982 and 1990, it was relaunched in 2013 and continues to the current day. 

Originally staged at SO36 in Kreuzberg by Dimitri Hegemann, the early years of Atonal fostered revolutionary and innovative musical acts such as Psychic TV, Einstürzende Neubauten, Laibach, Test Dept, 808 State, Die Haut among many others. Throughout the 1980s Berlin Atonal was at the vanguard of the progressive electronic and experimental music and art scenes in Berlin. The festival closed in 1990 with the fall of the Berlin wall as Hegemann went on to open the techno club Tresor.

In 2013, Berlin Atonal was relaunched at a new location - a massive abandoned powerplant in Berlin-Mitte - under new direction. Since this date the festival activates the powerplant for a week each year, featuring site-specific performances and installations, world premiere commissions and collaborations, screenings and workshops.

Berlin Atonal is delighted to release the final music program for the 2018 edition of the festival.

Festival passports are now sold out, but individual day tickets are still available from A limited amount of hard copy tickets are now buyable in Berlin at Spacehall in Kreuzberg. A further finite contingent will be released on the door when the festival opens each day.
