There might be a heatwave in parts of Europe and the UK now, but the hottest news is the return of Electronic Summer, the Swedish music festival.
First organised in Gothenburg in 2012, the event quickly established itself as the best programmed festival in the Nordics. It was joined by slightly smaller Electronic Winter shows, with the same high quality of acts and organisation. The seasonal festivals attracted a loyal following among Swedish and European fans, as well as an international reputation. Featured acts included DAF, Covenant, VNV Nation, Portion Control, Page, Sista mannen på jorden, and Apoptygma Berzerk. The conclusion of the series in 2017 left a hole in the festival calendar that hasn’t been filled.
We are delighted, therefore, that Electronic Summer 2022 sees the event return to Gothenburg’s Brewhouse for a 10th anniversary take-over. From 4-6 August, a mix of EBM, futurepop and synth artists will take to the stage in front of an army of black-clad fans.
The organisers have published the following line-up and details of a special event sponsored by Cold War Night Life:
Mesh (alternative set) (UK)
Aesthetic Perfection (acoustic with T.Jansson) (US)
Aesthetic Perfection (US)
Piston Damp (NO)
Sex Kino (SE/UK)

+ A Talk With Brian Griffin on stage. Brian is the legendary photographer behind all the early Depeche-albumphotos and much more. During the festival Saturday we will have a chat with him on stage and we will also have 4 signed prints made in only 100 copies each for sale. More about these prints soon.
The Brian Griffin-appearance at the festival is arranged together with our friends over at Cold War Night Life.
