Berlin Festival 2013 at Tempelhof Airport: Acts revealed

Tempelhof Airport will open its gates on 6th and 7th September, welcoming Berlin Festival 2013 revelers for two whole days of electrifying performances from artists including Björk, Blur, My Bloody Valentine, Pet Shop Boys and many, many more. With a genre clash of pop, techno and indie, the much-loved Art Village, a poetry slam, spoken word and a mix of underground and mainstream, Berlin Festival brings together all the cultural facets of the German capital.

British singer / songwriter, Ellie Goulding, will dazzle the Berlin Festival masses, performing songs from her critically acclaimed breakthrough album Lights and 2012 follow up Halcyon. Austrian-raised and New York-based Left Boy, who brought us a true dancefloor smasher with his debut single Black Dress will also perform, whilst Swedish indie-rockers The Sounds, will present us with exclusive material from their brand-new album. Get Well Soon, S O H N, Charli XCX, Pool, Bosnian Rainbows, Parquet Courts, Ruen Brothers and Capital Cities are also confirmed to perform at Tempelhof Airport. Plus, Graf von Bothmer, will perform a newly composed soundtrack for Walther Ruttmann‘s legendary silent movie, Berlin: Symphony of a Metropolis.
