Casual Gabberz, MCZO & Duke, Sote, Putas Vampiras, Gabber Modus Operandi, and others make up tonight’s formidable lineup at Berghain. This caustic lineup harkens back to CTM’s famed Wasted nights, and promises all things hard, gut-wrenching, and uncompromising.
CTM continues its critical engagement with AI with the annual CTM x transmediale Collaborative Concert. The two festivals welcome the world premiere of Actress and Young Paint’s live AI/AV show.
