A new electronic music festival, CURRENTS, is set to take place in an abandoned power plant south of Berlin on Saturday 8th October.
CURRENTS has been curated by Romanian music production and DJ duo Khidja, the line-up includes artists such as Suzanne Ciani, Lena Willikens (who will perform with Marylou), Dopplereffekt and Alicia Carrera.
The one-day event will run from 3pm to 1am and is located at the former E-WERK Luckenwalde, which was originally built in 1913 as a coal power station and closed down in 1989. In September 2019, Performance Electrics transformed the building into a renewable Kunststrom power station and contemporary art centre.
CURRENTS, which claims to be one of the first 100% carbon-neutral electronic music and performance festivals, will be powered by burning locally sourced waste wood chips to generate electricity.
The festival is a non-profit event with funds going to support “an international community of artists and cultural workers existentially threatened by climate change, pandemics, wars, displacement and economic inequality”.
