Delivering finest EBM, electropop and industrial, the E-tropolis Festival appears as a mandatory gathering of the dark-electro scene. The upcoming 8th edition calls to Turbinenhalle Oberhausen again on 17. March 2018 – now with even more spectacular guests, we’re happy to announce today!
“If you bring a unicorn to the show, we make it part of it”, with this spot-on address to a fan, VNV NATIONmastermind Ronan Harris recently summed up all you need to know about the Irish-British hit factory’s concerts: total entertainment at full blast! Armed with an immense repertoire of irresistible blockbuster tunes you can always rely on VNV, as the entire audience, from the front row till the very back of the field, follows them on their gripping journey.
Whenever PROJECT PITCHFORK get to play at Turbinenhalle, the E-tropolis reaches its prime moments. For sure, a circle-pit in the hall or, more commonly spoken, a full grown stampede, would be an extra incentive to join, but one rule never fails: wherever the Hamburg-based scene-pioneers around Peter Spilles hit the floor, they kick hard with a heart! 27 years in service and the best is yet to come! We are looking forward to it!
ROTERSAND – a lighthouse surrounded by waves of dancing bodies…! For 15 years now the ingenious team of front man Rasc and producer Krischan Wesenberg defies the surges of the raging black sea around them, continuously setting their very own unique musical accents. Intriguingly catchy at times, rough and edgy at others, their most recent work “Capitalism TM” again provides the perfect fuel for steaming dancefloors.
Basically at E-tropolis Festival we follow the rule of accepting no imitations. For FORCED TO MODE however it was only a question of time until we simply had to hit the override button. Master and servant are equally excited as soon as the guys step into the ring with their ultra-cool Depeche Mode tribute-set. Big hits in an excellent live-outfit – come forth to enjoy the silence!
So this is the full line-up as it has been revealed so far:
NACHTMAHR + AESTHETIC PERFECTION
ROTERSAND + FROZEN PLASMA + FORCED TO MODE
.COM/KILL + EISFABRIK + XOTOX [20 Jahre XOTOX]
Plus more artists to be announced soon! Further the official pre-party at Turbinenhalle 2 will be continued on Friday 16. March.
