Pitchfork Music Festival Berlin 2023 | Weval + yunè pinku (live)

Pitchfork, the "most trusted voice in music", announces the return of the Pitchfork Music Festival Berlin, taking place from November 1st to 5th. The festival will be hosted at various locations, including silent green from November 3rd to 5th.

Since 2006, music enthusiasts from all over the world have come to the music festivals curated by Pitchfork in Chicago and Paris. Since 2020, Berlin has also been on the Pitchfork map alongside London. For the Pitchfork Music Festival Berlin 2023, as in previous years, innovators, upcoming stars and cult figures have been gathered to celebrate Berlin's status as one of the most important cities for underground culture.

Amsterdam-based duo Weval (made up of Harm Coolen & Merijn Scholte Albers) released on the 3rd of March their long-awaited album Remember on Nija Tune imprint Technicolour. The  album which includes the single Don't Lose Time embarks on a high energy journey of nostalgic memories and euphoric emotions, seeing the electronic duo reminisce on their own musical journey while reflecting on key influences and inspiration over the years. “We played and embraced this with unshameful nostalgic feelings around discovering music as young music fans” they commented.

yunè pinku
yunè pinku makes nostalgia-fueled music infused with techno and garage, and airlifted by her gentle, occasionally deadpan vocal melodies, corroborating lyrics like “told you I don’t give a fuck” with a delightful, lilting shrug in her voice. Now 20 years old, the Malaysian-Irish Londoner broke out with her fidgety, incandescent debut single, Laylo, and hit her stride during a string of lockdowns early in the pandemic, creating a cache of song sketches that formed her Bluff EP last year. On her latest EP, Babylon IX, yunè levels up by adding richer detail and texture to her production, finding an easy sweet spot between trance and electro pop throughout, gliding toward a sleek, tasteful approach without relinquishing her personality.

Sunday, November 5
Doors: 7 pm / Start: 8 pm
