Festival Description

For many years now the annual festival season offered numerous open air events in a variety of different styles, such as goth festivals, metal open airs, hip-hop events and many more. Although, a pure electro open air festival was missing. With the E-tropolis Festival the search for an open air electro blockbuster, has finally ended. As the name “E-tropolis“- in silent association with the expressionistic imagery of Fritz Lang´s movie classic “Metropolis“ — implies, the focus of the festival concentrates entirely on the world of machines.

By that, the E-tropolis Festival comprises a wide range of different electronic styles in a unique, electrifying open air event, featuring classic EBM, harsh Industrial & Cyberelectro, Synth-Pop and alternative dance acts in one pulsating stream of synthetic music.

Celebrating its premiere edition in 2010, the E-tropolis Festival chose five current-charged bands, allowing themselves to submit the festival to their massive sound-consecration. The programming includes autograph sessions, an extensive shopping mile, an after-show party and much more. From 2010 to 2013 the festival took place in Berlin. As of 2014 the festival has moved to Oberhausen, North Rhine-Westphalia.
