UPDATE: We are very sorry to announce that due to illness, Milky Chance have had to cancel their festival appearance. While there won’t be another act to replace them (how could there be?), we will be offering vouchers for all EB Festival Cologne ticket holders to see the duo perform an exclusive show which we will try to set up sometime in the near future. For that date, vouchers can be picked up at the EB Festival in Cologne and will have to be presented together with your EB Festival ticket for free entry. Despite the setback, we do hope you all will attend but if you had your heart set on seeing only Milky Chance and would like a refund, we will be happy to give you your money back. Please note that the ticket refund is available up to May 30th and only where the tickets were originally purchased. - See more at: http://www.electronicbeats.net/en/events/2014/electronic-beats-festival-cologne-2014-line-up-announced/%23sthash.ffEkmoMa.dpuf
After the excitement surrounding our EB Festival Prague announcement—which resulted in tickets being sold out in less than four hours—we know you’ve been waiting to hear more news about further festival lineups. Well, today’s the day,Cologners! Mostly… we’re such teases, we know! But to whet your appetites, we’re here to tell you most of who will be joining us this year at Cologne’s E-Werk on May 23rd!
About the artists:
Headlining is none other than the inimitable Goldfrapp! Always ahead of the curve, the English pop eccentrics’ various permutations have seen them go from trashy-glamorous electroclash envoys, weirdo disco doyens and eldritch folk outliers in their fifteen year lifespan. Their most recent album, 2013’s stunning Tales of Us was their most personal record yet, pulling together the intimate, stripped back songwriting they recently perfected and the sweeping beauty of their debut Felt Mountain. Live, they’re always been an incendiary prospect—remember the theremin?—and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for this most intriguing period of their career.
Jon Hopkins has worked with names ranging from Brian Eno and Coldplay to Four Tet and David Lynch. He’s even chilled with our very own Slices team, which you can watch below. His recent album Immunity was nominated for the Mercury Prize, and one listen reveals why; with its haunting moments of beauty and emotional ambiance, it perfectly captures the resonance of a really good night out. We can’t wait to see him bring that kind of power to the stage!
Coming all the way from Canada, Mac DeMarco‘s particular blend of glammy, woozy jams have been described as “slacker rock” and “jizz jazz”, and should go down quite well for fans of the inimitable Ariel Pink and other outsider weirdos. And opening the night is local electro-pop duo Vimes.
