Berlin and Manchester bands and artists converge for a final send-off of its kind for Kraak venue (which closes its doors in September). The Manchester and Berlin connection was established in the early days of Kraak Gallery, before Kraak venue had opened. The underground art shows and wild raves which happened back then, just before the transformation of Stevenson Square and much of the Northern Quarter, are now the stuff of legend. This line-up has been specially chosen to reflect the musicians and artists of those times; expect some of the finest experimental noise art, poetry, punk, rock, psychedelia, folk and afro beat.
