The first Kollaps festival for underground electronic music in Stockholm was successful. So, on January 30-31 it’s time for the second incarnation – a 2-day event on 3 stages with Clock DVA, Youth Code (pic), In Aeternam Vale, Dive, Ancient Methods, Henric de la Cour and lots of others. Kollaps is different. Fewer safe bets like VNV Nation and Page; bands that always play. Instead, more odd and unique bookings uniting the classic synth and the intellegent techno scenes. We talked to Jonas from Kollaps. [more...]
