Festival teases 2016 line-up; watch a trailer below

Pop-Kultur has revealed the first segment of a new short film, ahead of the announcement of the festival’s full line-up.

The film, entitled Kurt’s Lighter, is being released in three parts until April 26, at which point a number of this year's headliners and other highlights from the line-up will also be announced. It’s filmed and directed by Paul Kelly and you can watch the first part above right now.

Berlin-based culture festival Pop-Kultur is back for its second year on August 31, taking place over three days at a variety of venues across the city. It will consist of live music, film screenings, DJ sets, readings and talks.

The day before the festival, Mogwai will be playing new album Atomic in its entirety at Admiralspalast. It is comprised of reworked versions of music recorded for Mark Cousin’s documentary Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise.

"Atomic, Mogwai’s hypnotic soundtrack for Marc Cousins’ documentary, fascinated us right from the start. The interplay of music and images shows that pop music can unequivocally be political, despite what many people think,” says Pop-Kultur team-member Martin Hossbach. Doors will be at 7pm and tickets are priced at €30. Tickets can be bought here.
