17th March 2018
E-Tropolis Festival 2018 with VNV Nation, Project Pitchfork, Nachtmahr, Rotersand, Aesthetic Perfection and many more

Rough on the shell, clamorous at the core – the E-Tropolis Festival continues! For the eighth time our machine warriors march into position again for a “BETTER-HARDER-LOUDER” festival extravaganza of the electronic kind. Enjoy the crackling and bristling of electric current and get injected with the finest highlights of DARK ELECTRO, EBM, SYNTHPOP and INDUSTRIAL – perfectly orchestrated on two stages, 17th March 2018 at Turbinenhalle Oberhausen.

It is already the fifth time that the E-Tropolis Festival will take place at the Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen after the festival moved from Berlin to the Ruhr valley in 2014. And again the line-up is a whoopee for everyone who loves electronic music from the dark side! Headliners are VNV NATION, guaranteeing a splendid end of the festival day. As always, lovers of several kinds of electronic music will find their favourite bands within the line-up:

So it's quite a line-up in a location which couldn't be more perfect for this kind of music. The Turbinenhalle is a former industrial building, a hydroelectric power plant for the Ruhr valley's past steel industry, to be more precise. Quite apt for a festival for EBM, Synth Pop and Industrial! The move from Berlin to Oberhausen was also a smart move in other regards, since the Ruhr area is one of Europe's largest urban agglomerations and a place which is a traditional stronghold of all things EBM, Industrial, Gothic and so on. Plus it's rather close to Belgium and the Netherlands and thanks to the many airports there it's just a short flight from most European countries. You should definitely get your tickets in advance!
