The Honecker-Bunker was used during the war to protect the DDR elite of a nuclear attack, and so you can imagine it’s grandeur. Hidden from the public eye, the structure will be given a new lease of life, as the festivals debut event launches on August 17 – 19th 2018.
First wave of artists have been announced with newcomers and locals being mixed with headliners, purveying a ‘Techno purism’ approach.
More info can be found below, with forthcoming artist announcements to follow in the coming months.
