Venue: Strandbad Weissensee
Time: 13:00 – 22.00

The tiny (limited to 200), exquisitely eclectic By the Lake Festival is celebrating its fourth year on the sandy beach of the Weissensee. The lineup promises surprise pop-ups and unannounced special guests alongside the four main headliners, which include the latest incarnation of avant grade krautrockers fAUst (who perform alongside Schneider TM and a children’s choir) and Ata Kak, a lo-fi Ghanian rapper and highlife musician who was pulled from obscurity by Awesome Tapes from Africa’s Brian Shimkovitz. Dance yourself silly while splashing around in the lake. Or, if you can’t snag tickets to the festival, join the after party at ACUD Macht Neu, hosted and DJ’ed by the festival’s organizers and special guests.
