Artists

EISFABRIK – DE – !!UK DEBUT!!
Somewhere between dark electro and future pop lies a new “Jack Frost”. Cold and icy but with a sound that is definitely hot and sexy. Super catchy and danceable Futurepop with Synth Pop and EBM influences. Expect full on danceable club hits, profound lyrics, and catchy tunes. Don’t expect Coldwave but you might want to bring your arctic snow gear…

 

ADULT – US – !!INFEST DEBUT!!
Fervent proponents of a dark, dance aesthetic that harnesses the perverse aspects of the late ’70s analog dystopian post-modernism, 80s electro and 90s tech. Their music is a strenuous exercise in claustrophobia, anxiety and bleak humour. ADULT. has a long-standing reputation for creating the soundtrack for our insecurities. They understand the importance of disconnecting, getting weird, getting lost…

 

SCHEUBER – DE – !!UK DEBUT!!
Dark, melancholic pop music, illustrating the fragility of a human exorcising his personal demons. Based on emotional openness, love and consideration. After the turmoil of the inner monologue, you can hear the inner peace, thoughtfulness and mental strength coming through. If you enjoy your Darkwave and Futurepop to have a thoughtful voice and introspective edge, this is the band you want to catch at INFEST 2020. Immense in every respect!

 

KNIGHT$ – UK – !INFEST DEBUT!
Creating a thunderstorm of synth melody, with a flair for penning memorable electronic pop anthems. Knight$ puts on heart stopping live shows, as he travels on a breakneck journey through synth city! Cool, upbeat and infectious tracks you’ll want to play on repeat. With one foot firmly in the present, and a discerning knowledge of music’s past, KNIGHT$ might just be the newcomer to occupy your sound system in 2020. Welcome to “Britalo”!

 

DSX – DE – !!UK DEBUT!!
An adherence to body music fundamentals, with rigid hard hitting, minimal beats. Impassive and echoing female vocals combined with Electronic Body Music in its purest form. Simultaneously agitating and instinctive. The mileage Samardzic gets from his clockwork beats and industrial groans is proof positive of skill, acquired through decades of studio work and brought to bear just in time for the rest of the electronic world to catch up…

 

KITE – SE – !!UK DEBUT!!
Perfect dance floor fillers with a musical base melodiousness and catchy rhythm… Once again, Sweden manifests itself as the home of some of the best synth music in the world. Their dark dreamscapes will undoubtedly enthrall thousands of new listeners with everyone of their spectacular performances. It’s a huge honour for INFEST to be chosen as their UK DEBUT for what will prove to be a stunning show.

 

GENEVIEVE PASQUIER – DE – !!UK DEBUT!!
An imaginary arena where avant-garde, pop and industrial ingredients intermingle in the most peculiar way, like a milky oil-in-water emulsion. Her music is perhaps not easy to digest for some, yet everyone will surely find it fascinating… One of the most well-known female noise and industrial artists in the underground. The perfect fusion between German electro-industrial with an unexpected but entirely coherent and joyous pop sensibility.

 

MONYA – PL – !!INFEST DEBUT!!
Monya joining the Hands Productions label was a match made in Heaven. Booking Monya for infest was the only logical conclusion! Her style is a milestone for the genre in its seemingly effortless combination of rhythmic force, sturdy bass and sweeping sounds. There’s a clear techno aesthetic with a continuous rough edge. Not wishing to sound immodest, Monya is straight-ahead brilliant.

 

THE CASSANDRA COMPLEX – UK – !!FIRST UK SHOW IN A DECADE!!
Putting electro touches on goth-style songs, rock touches into EBM music, flourishes of ambient, classical and more to make the whole experience much more interesting and memorable. A unique blend of darkly energetic music. Cassandra Complex have no limits – diversity is important – diversity is everything.

 

MOAAN EXIS – FR – !!UK DEBUT!!
An aural melancholy with the violence of catastrophe; there is little respite and so much urgency. This is manifested by a powerful beat, confusing rhythms, strange sounds, a brutal distortion of disturbing soundscapes. Because the energy comes from your own emotion, ultimately MOAAN EXIS turns sound into fury, rage and sweat.
…be prepared to be pummelled by this beast!

 

VENTENNER – UK – !!INFEST DEBUT!!
London’s Ventenner are leading the UKs industrial rock revival and have proven themselves to be a formidable force. Heavy on Tool-esque bass groove, grungy vocals and rounded out with some class electronics for good measure. Expect an intense live show. In addition to their own studio releases, you’ll discover a collection of work including remixes as well as tv and film collaborations.

 

PROJECT PITCHFORK – DE – !!INFEST FAVOURITE!!
They get better every year! Radical, edgy and aggressive. Melancholic and dark… Legends on the scene with a history and live roster to put awe into the hearts of touring acts the world over. From headlining the German mega-fests, and more than a few appearances at our own INFEST. Iconic and masterly with a visionary and deeply fascinating perspective on the world. They create the industrial electronic music we need! (We are fans. Can you tell?)

 

ATTRITION – UK – !!INFEST DEBUT!!
One of the first bands to experiment with electronic sound and post-modern soundscapes, Attrition create a nexus of industrial fury, gothic drama, ambient structural finesse and classical chamber orchestrations. Stunning scope, character and intellect. Attrition has successfully melded several genres into one. Dark industrial with all the compassion and attention to detail of classical music…

 

BERLYN TRILOGY – UK – !!INFEST DEBUT!!
Local retro-futurist, romantics with classic electronic structure and a darkly exciting edge. Escape the dull grey that is the disappointment of yesterday’s future…
Through songs of the city and the heartbreak of unrequited love. A fine synthpop outfit that we’re very pleased to invite to our stage.

 

KOLLAPS – AU – !!INFEST DEBUT!!
Primitive noise “intended for degenerates and outsiders” their violent and nihilistic stage performances takes audiences on a journey into the desperation and lack of resolve that is both the crux of modern social ills and at the very heart of the human condition… Be prepared for an oppressive noise wall! Earplugs can’t help protect your sanity when it’s already gone.

 

ZYNIC – DE – !!UK DEBUT!!
Retropop for the future! Balancing the analogue charm of the eighties with modern synthetics. H.P. Zymandel aka ZYNIC is actively working on some new tracks. If there is something still unsaid in the world of electronic music, this is the guy who will say it!
Stay Zynic…
