Since many years, DIE FORM are well renowned for creating a type of music and image in league with the art form of "multimedia intervention" (combining music, performance, photography and cinema/video). Since 1978, besides participating in multiple international projects, they have released around thirty albums, many video clips & films and two art books that allow appreciation of their particular universe: from industrial and organic electronics, tortured neo-classic and experimental constructions to more accessible compositions (based on rhythms, cuts, sampling, treated voices and sequences). Always motivated by their passions, Philippe F. and Eliane P. depict the ultimate beauty of love, at the boundary of the forbidden. It had been from 2006 since Die Form Played Belgium! Facebook

TYSKE LUDDER (D)
In the beginning of the 90s Tyske Ludder set the course for their work as pioneers in the european EBM and Dark-Electro scene. Coming up from the Wave- and New-Romantic scene they developed very early their meditations on the predominance of technology in our society. Nightmare-like visions of the then-raging war in Yugoslavia as well as the recurring military enforcement of the United States' claim for world domination represent the other thematic constant in the work of the 'German Whore'. Through the years their musical model developed from heavy Electro-Sounds to some kind of ominous dance music somewhere between Industrial and the aroma of a nuclear blast.
DER KLINKE (B)
Formed in 2009 in Ostend, Belgium. Inspîred by Cold Wave & Electronics, the debut album “Square Moon” was released in 2011.“The Second Sun” released in 2012 made it an even harder task to describe their unique but already established sound. In 2013 the single "The Doll" was released and it became an instant club hit. Today it's 2014 and the band is working on their 3rd full album "The Gathering of Hopes". Facebook
