Atonal, a name which one can easily link to the city of Berlin; just had a new version of its festival hosting a main stage line-up battling in an octagonal ring divided in four rounds.


With what seemed to be (at least from our place in the audience) a well structured tech-rider; the festival showcased well arranged, yet not predictable rounds of sets ranking from mild Psy-drone (Ena + Rashad Becker) to hardcore haptic electro (Pact Infernal) with a wide audio-visual spectrum in between.


The real credits are nevertheless prized to the production team backstage, whom seemed to be committed to rescue the festival’s original idea of turning the city of Berlin into a resonance box.
