Electronic Beats are damn busy this spring. Not content with waiting for the festival season proper to swing around, they’ve gone and pressed the fast-forward button — organising a slue of huge one-nighters in major cities across the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Germany. And boy have they brought along some heavyweight artists for the ride. For the opening salvo in Prague at the end of March, they had broken beats and trip-hop overlord Bonobo, German electro supergroup Moderat, and dystopian duo Diamond Version on stage.
Levels of anticipation are naturally high for the next instalment tonight in Warsaw. It’s so big they’ve had to split it in two. First up, at 7pm at the Palladium theater, it’ll be indie-folk darling José González, ambient Icelandic genre-hopper Ólafur Arnalds, and electronic home-country hero KRÓL. Then at 11:30pm at club Basen, the business end of things, Hudson Mohawke, John Talabot, and Mooryc will be driving it home until the early hours. Tickets? Step right this way.
