Berlin’s renowned Krake Festival is preparing for another groundbreaking year as it proudly announces its 2024 lineup. This year, the festival sets its focus on platforming artists with disabilities, a group that often faces marginalization even within the realm of diversity.

To kick off the festival on June 18, Berghain will host a performance by Drag Syndrome, a collective of drag kings and queens who are breaking boundaries as the first and only group of its kind comprised of individuals with Down’s Syndrome. The night will also feature captivating performances by Hard Ton, Pansy, Sarah Sommers, and Für Elise, an emerging group from the inclusive music project Ich Mache Welle.

After the exhilarating opening at Berghain, the Krake Festival Weekend will take place at ://About Blank on June 23-24. This immersive experience will seamlessly blend daytime garden parties with electrifying nighttime mega jams, creating an event that is not to be missed.

With its commitment to highlighting artists with disabilities and fostering inclusivity, Krake Festival is set to challenge the norms of the music festival scene once again. Be sure to explore the full lineup to get a glimpse of the bold and diverse acts that await at this year’s festival.
