Like every year, we try to compile a varying and appealing line-up in the best BIMFEST tradition! This year's line-up will be based on our postponed 2020 "light" edition but with much more bands added to the original 2020 line-up.

We are also pleased to announce UK electro/industrial/EBM pioneers PORTION CONTROL will come to celebrate their over 40 years of existence at BIMFEST! They will play on both nights with different sets, one set based on the recently released SEED EP's and one set containing a selection of the best tracks taken from their extensive back catalogue.

BIMFEST XIX A SPLIT-SECOND has been one of Belgium's most famous musical exports since the mid-'80s and is still kicking ass to this day. With the release of classics such as 'Flesh' (1985) (a track that became a blueprint for the entire subsequent New Beat movement), 'Rigor Mortis' and 'Ballistic Statues', the band quickly established itself at the forefront of the international independent underground scene. Meanwhile, they still travel around the world, from Berlin to the far reaches of Sao Paulo and Mexico, with their hard hitting and energetic Best-Of show! Rumors say that the band is in the studio recording some new material ... so there's still more to come!

BIMFEST XIX ABSOLUTE BODY CONTROL was founded in 1980 and released their first 7" and instant culthit 'Is There an Exit' just one year later. After a couple of DIY tape releases Dirk Ivens and Eric Van Wontergem putted their ABC project aside to focus on their other projects like The Klinik, Dive, Sonar, Insekt and Monolith. In 2007 however, the project got finally, and successfully, reactivated. Multiple new quality releases have been released since and with recently the mini album “A New Dawn” on 12"/CD earlier this year.

Absolute Body Control is known for their extremely danceable mix of Minimal, Electro, Synth-Pop and EBM, even to far beyond our European borders!

PORTION CONTROL has been around for over 40 years now, and this is what they are coming to celebrate with us on BIMFEST XIX with two different live shows! On Friday night they will present us 'SEED LIVE', a set containing material of the 3 magnificent EP's, SEED 1, SEED 2 and SEED 3, which they recorded and released during the recent pandemic (20202-2021).

Their second EP called Body Electric, is out now! For influences, the duo refers to Coldwave and EBM such as Schwefelgelb, DAF, Kontravoid, or Front 242
