On 3rd September 2011 the second E-tropolis Festival will take place at the Columbia compound in Berlin. Few days before the festival, we are sorry to inform you about a recent change in the lineup. Due to health issues, Rotersand had to step back from the festival lineup. Though the band would have loved to play the festival, they are very sad not being able to perform. Please read their following statement:

“We are sorry to announce that we needed to cancel our show at the E-tropolis-Festival in Berlin on Sep 3rd 2011. Rasc’s recovery process is going well, but playing a show would be too early for him. A big ‘thank you’ to everyone, who left ‘get well soon’-wishes in our guestbook / facebook-page….” (more…)

4 New Bands Confirmed at Amphi Festival 2011

New bands confirmed for the Amphi Festival 2011:

The first new entry not only offers a profound measure to give the chills to your neighbour at the next traffic light, AGONOIZE are in any respect on top of their game! Especially in providing adrenaline-pumped electro sound, there are very few to teach the heavy machinery specialists from Berlin a lesson. Reinforced by visual splatter effects AGONOIZE are infamous for their rough-edged stage performances and nothing for the faint-hearted!


All quiet at the Amphi-front? Not in the slightest! The industrial-bombers FEINDFLUG always enjoy to deliver an action-packed show. After literally laying the Amphi stage in ashes in 2009, Felix and Banane are returning with a sonic thunderstorm, to commemorate the horrors of the World War II.
