Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany
16th March 2019
E-Tropolis Festival 2019 with Apoptygma Berzerk, Die Krupps, Suicide Commando, Solar Fake, Welle:Erdball and many more

Waiting on with the finest in EBM, electropop and industrial, the E-Tropolis Festival marks a mandatory date for the dark-electro scene. Sold out for the first time in 2018, we are looking back at the most successful E-Tropolis Festival so far while at the same time forward to setting-off another cracking celebration á la maison in 2019. "Better - Harder - Louder" - on 16. March at Turbinenhalle Oberhausen as well as 15. March at Turbinenhalle 2 with the official pre-party.

It is already the sixth 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 APOPTYGMA BERZERK, 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!

E-Tropolis Pre-Party
The official E-TROPOLIS PRE-PARTY goes into its third round and therewith contributes to a still young but very fine tradition. On Friday, 15 March, we invite you to party with us at Turbinenhalle 2.
