The music and arts festival returns to Berlin, January 27–February 5.
Since 1999, CTM Festival has run concurrently and cooperatively with transmediale to bring cutting edge art and experimental music to Berlin. The theme for the festival’s 18th edition is Fear, Anger, Love, and comprises a varied lineup that takes in everything from pounding techno to abrasive grime experiments. A range of panels, screenings, presentations, live shows and club nights will come to Berghain, Red Bull Studios Berlin, the Native Instruments offices and other spaces across the city.
Artists playing include Staycore affiliate mobilegirl, Gobstopper Records boss Mr. Mitch and Sami Baha, who debuted on Planet Mu with the powerful Mavericks EP last year.
Joining them on the bill are Elysia Crampton, DJ Stingray, Sky H1, DEBONAIR, Traxman, and much more. RBMA and CTM have also teamed up for the festival’s closing party at Red Bull Studios, with performances from MikeQ, Ziúr and Toxe, among others.
CTM 2017 takes place in Berlin, January 27–February 5. A full programme and tickets are available here.
