As the second chapter of Junction 2 takes shape, the festival have announced the first four names on the line-up.
Junction 2 partner and Drumcode boss Adam Beyer will be joined by the mighty Ben Klock, one of Berghain’s most loved residents; techno legend Chris Liebing and Caribou’s Daphni, bringing a contrasting twist to the setting.
As well as teasing us with this initial line-up, festival organisers LWE also announce two new stages to be woven into the festival’s unique landscape, taking the total number to five. The new areas open up spaces to showcase fresh sounds across a broader spectrum of electronica, whilst keeping the overall ethos of the festival.
The first of the new areas is already deep in development - a contender for the festival’s iconic bridge stage - while the second is primed to showcase new talent and breakthrough sounds, bringing new blood to the line up housed in a hidden enclave deep in the woods.
"When we first found the Junction 2 site last year, we sensed we were onto something special,” said LWE; ‘Looking at that extraordinary space under the M4 and the parkland surrounding it, we just knew that an incredible crowd and heavyweight sound levels could create something truly amazing.
“The only thing making us nervous about Junction 2 in 2017 is living up to the expectations set by 2016. We've been thinking hard about how to replicate that atmosphere and the overriding conclusion we came to was that magic ingredient was the crowd. Yes, you lovely people who trusted us, had faith and came and danced with us at Junction 2."
