KRAKE is an annual Berlin based festival for challenging electronic music. Krake means octopus and the festival is organised in a comparable way: reaching out to selected locations during one week presenting the best in electronic music, whatever style it is. The festival is not huge, not expensive, does not have big sponsoring deals or four different colour area passes. It’s just a good and so far successful try to bring back the focus on artists who dare to step off the beaten tracks. A festival for music lovers.
