We at BodyBeats Production are happy to announce another festival for 2017! The return of DAFT FEST!

This time as joint venture between BodyBeats Production and Daft Records / Minimal Maximal records featuring artists who's work has been released on these before mentioned labels.

I think we might say the line-up looks quite impressive featuring both national as international artists.

ESPLENDOR GEOMETRICO (ES)

We delighted to confirm these Spanish industrial pioneers as one of our headliners for an exclusive clubshow! It has been almost 7 year since E.G. played Belgium (BIMFEST 2010).

PORTION CONTROL (UK)

This hard-hitting British Electro/EBM duo is know for their pumping beats, sequences and performances.

In 2014 they released 'Unrest In The Grime' on Minimal Maximal Records and currently they are working on news material!

A SPLIT-SECOND (B)

One of Belgiums best known musical export products since the early 80's still kicking ass today! A Split-Second re-released their first ever tape 'Stained Impressions' on Minimal Maximal Records in 2012. Rumors say they are back in the studio recording new material! Meanwhile they still tour the world with a stunning and energetic Best-Of show!

DIVE (B)

Of course the harsh industrial/EBM solo project of Daft/Minimal Maximal label manager Dirk Ivens is a must on DAFT FEST! Earlier this year the brand new album 'Underneath' saw the day of light resulting in another extensive tour around the world.

VITA NOCTIS (B)

Another fine Belgian project is this minimal / electro / wave project which originated in the early 80's. Their first tape and deleted vinyls were released on Minimal Maximal in 2011. Meanwhile the band has release stunning comeback album 'No Place For You' on DAFT Records in 2015.

THE FORCE DIMENSION (NL)

One of the few splendid underground Electro/EBM ever to come from The Netherlands so far. After decades of silence they re-emerged with reboot a concert BIMFEST 2015 and the re-release of their debut album on Minimal Maximal. Beginning 2017 they released the brand new studio album 'Machinesex' of Daft Records opening they way even to Sao Paulo, Brazil where they surprised friend and foe with an amazing strong performance!

GERTRUD STEIN (CH/UK)

Is the visual art & electro music project of the London based Swiss artist Gertrud Stein who drew our attention with her contribution to the Daft Records compilation 'Deep'. Also Getrud Stein's live show are not to be missed!

KnK (B)

New, fresh, dark and heavy electro/industrial revelation from Antwerp city who had their tapes 'Dead Body Music I + II' re-released on Daft Records in 2016 and certainly worth to check-out!

Both nights will have an pounding afterparty with Waves & Beats spun by resident DJ BORG, DJ SKULLSCRAPER (aka Dirk Ivens) and friends!

Last two names added to BIMFEST 2017 line-up! ALVAR (SE) and ELM (SE)!

19 June 2017 18:12

It's with great pleasure we like to announce to your our last two BIMFEST contenders ALVAR and ELM!

Coincidence or not, and beside the fact all six Dark Demons candidates gave a energetic performance, the audience of the Dark Demons Night chose both Swedish acts to open BIMFEST 2017!

The first one is Brussels based Swedish no-compromise straight forward E.B.M. act ELM of Peter Elm. His music fitting neatly in between the likes of UK E.B.M. godfathers Nitzer Ebb and those other Swedish hard core hooligans of Spetsnaz.

The second BIMFEST opener will be the Swedish Electro Industrial act ALVAR who, besides some tape releases, released their debute album 'Guilt Kollektion' on Daft Records last year. Their music is a mixture of the old school Cold Meat Industry sound, techno and E.B.M.

We at BodyBeats Productions are very proud to announce you a newly confirmed double bill event featuring two of the most legendary electro-cross-over and EBM bands still who have been around for three decades and are still kicking ass today ... DIE KRUPPS + FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY!!!!!

DIE KRUPPS (D) are one of those pioneers of Electronic and Industrial music that inspired FRONT 242, NITZER EBB and many more ... With their first and very industrial sounding album ‘Stahlwerksinfonie’ and the forthcoming clubhit single ‘Wahre Arbeit Wahrer Lohn’ and the following albums ‘Volle Kraft Voraus’ and ‘Entering The Arena’, the foundation for Electronic Body Music was laid.

In 2015, DIE KRUPPS successfully released their fifth studio album ‘V – Metal Machine Music’ and now their V 1/2 release is imminent!

FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY is one of those influencial Canadian Electro-Industrial pioneer bands, formed by Bill Leeb after he left Skinny Puppy. Influenced by early electronic and post-industrial acts such as Cabaret Voltair, Portion Control , Test Department en Severed Heads FLA has developed its own sound while combining elements of EBM (Electronic Body Music). Also FLA has never disappeared from the underground scene and strikes back regularly with new , still hard hitting albums!

To see both bands on the same stage on the same night is a unique event! So don't miss out!
