Moscow techno collective Arma 17 are celebrating their 10-year anniversary with a 24-hour rave in Berlin this summer.
On 2nd June, the Russian outfit will take over four rooms at iconic East Berlin venue Funkhaus for an all-day and all-night party featuring some of electronic music’s biggest names.
The night will be separated into four distinct themes including live, experimental, 24-hours and techno. Artists already announced for the birthday bash include electro-acoustic originals Ambiq, industrialist Zoviet France and Salford rockers Gnod. Petre Insperiscu, Nastia and Etapp Kyle are also on the line-up, which you can see in full here.
It’s been a difficult time for underground pioneers Arma 17. A fire destroyed its first location in the Russian capital and members were subjected to ongoing harassment by authorities. When their 2016 Outline Festival was forced to shut down by police, the organisers announced “a de facto state of an international phenomenon”. They continue to host parties all over the world and release left-of-centre music via their record label.
