Telekom Electronic Beats

Cologne Electronic Beats Festival line-up announced!

We’re on a roll when it comes to announcing line-ups it seems, and with momentum building for the EB Festival Season with the news that Hurts, James Pants, Agoria and Youth Kills have signed up for the Bratislava event, what of Germany’s installment? Well, we’re hyped to announce that come the 16th May, 2013 British post-dubstep poster boy James Blake will be topping the bill at Cologne’s E-Werk, with exemplary support coming from Baltimore-based electronic mage Dan Deacon, stylishly dour Canadians (and EB Poll 2012 victorsTrust, Kompakt’s very own Popnoname and Danish post-punk revivalists Reptile Youth.

Those with memories at least partially intact will recall that James Blake is EB family, having played EB Festival Vienna and Gdansk in 2012. You can watch recordings of those performances at the bottom of this page.

The Facebook event page can be found here and tickets can be grabbed herehere and here. Don’t forget, the Twitter and Instagram hashtag is #EBF13. See you there!
