Audio Obscura’s legendary parties in unusual spaces are always among ADE’s highlights each year.
Their three-day line-up at the incredible RAW Factory was already looking spectacular and is now even bigger with the addition of Peggy Gou and Ryan Elliot on Thursday, and .VRIL live to Friday’s techno line-up.
Peggy Gou has been destroying the festival circuit, as usual, this summer, and her addition to the already-killer Thursday, October 20th line-up will be her only show during this year’s ADE, undoubtedly making it one of the most talked about events of the week. Her incredibly charismatic sets that flit from acid to breaks to rave to anthemic house and classic sounds are well-deserving of the praise they never fail to receive.
Berghain / Panoramabar resident Ryan Elliot is as happy and versatile playing tiny underground festivals as he is playing those hallowed Berlin halls, and his uncompromising approach to representing the most beguiling strands of techno always yields fascinating results. German contemporary techno-wizard.VRIL live completes this string of new names and joins Friday’s techno legends, with a sound that ranges from experimental deep listening to peak-time club tracks. His mix of ambient, IDM, and techno, sprinkle a unique touch on his highly energetic and profound sets.
The opening night also features luminaries like Eris Drew and Octo Octa playing back-to-back. The collaboration between the hugely-talented couple always ensures an incredible, intimate experience of ravey sounds across the board for all in attendance. Audio Obscura regular Deniro won’t be missing out on this edition and Brain De Palma will take over the RAW Factory with his colorful and melodic tech patterns. Irish talent Sally C and Milanese duo Hiver also feature, making for an eclectic array of musical delights.
All taking place G-Star’s vast industrial headquarters in the RAW Factory—where no sound restrictions are in place—these 10pm – 6am on Thursday and 9pm – 6am on Friday and Saturday are where the discerning underground music lovers will flock to during this year’s ADE. Tickets are on sale.
