Death In Vegas, Raime and Roly Porter all involved in this year's festival

The first names for this year's edition of Berlin Atonal have been announced with projects from over 100 artists promised across the line-up for the festival.

The 2016 bill takes in a world premiere Death In Vegas show which will see a full audio-visual live performance between Richard Fearless and artist and actress Sasha Grey. The show - entitled 'Transmission' - has apparently been in the works for some time and features all new experimental material.

Drew McDowall will also perform brand new material as part of a specially created A/V show entitled 'Unnatural Channel'. Imaginary Softwoods will play a rare live show while Roly Porter and Marcel Weber come together for a special show based on material from the former's recent Tri-Angle-released Third Law album.

These Hidden Hands present another world premiere with their 'Aphelion' A/V project, while Raime return to play material set to be released on Blackest Ever Black. Silent Servant and New York-via-Berlin artist Phase Fatale come together for another first-time live collaboration. "Fusing post-punk to darker, harder and industrial-influenced techno, this new live project combines rigid drumming, cold synths and bleak samples - the image of future war," promises a press release.

Berlin Atonal takes place at Kraftwerk Berlin for its fourth edition from August 24-28. For more information and to get tickets, click here.
