Festivals @ Electronic Beats

Save the date(s)! It’s time to break open your shiny 2014 diaries with the first announcement of next year’s Electronic Beats festival fixtures. Spring 2014 will see the cities of Prague, Warsaw, Bratislava, and Cologne once again playing host to Electronic Beats as we hit the road with a yet to be revealed line-up of artists. 

2014 Season

EB Festival Prague – March 28
EB Festival Warsaw – April 4
EB Festival Bratislava – April 11
EB Festival Cologne – May 23 
EB pres. Jazzfest Bonn – June 01 


Joining us this year at Cologne's E-Werk on May 23rd are folk-pop project Milky Chance—the duo of vocalist and musician Clemens Rehbein and DJ Philipp Dausch. You probably recall the 2013 chart-topping hit "Stolen Dance", or perhaps the 2013 debut album it preceded, Sadnecessary. Their quirky blend of electronic and reggae influences garnered them a sold-out tour in their native Germany and a larger European tour launching this year, of which our Cologne event will be the highlight. 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 .


Electronic beats have their roots in many different forms of music predating the synthesizer and drum machine—one of which is jazz. We have a lot of respect for the innovative sounds which emerged in the 1920s-era Southern US, and which continues to grow and mutate to this day. With that in mind, we’re proud to present a special event—including a full live stream online—highlighting two live acts who have continued the pioneering of this great genre.
