       wasted is a series of mini-festivals to celebrate loud, fast, radical and mostly
       electronic new musics unified by a bold spirit of unrespectful dissent,
       unruly enthusiasm and a mountain of positive energy, that are generally summed up
       under the loose terms of breakcore, mash-up or raggacore.

       wasted 1 explore the way in which breakcore as a music genre is developing
       internationally. the sound has been radically altered, breakcore in many ways
       refreshes crucial basics of techno’s early days. the two wasted nights will present
       themselves in the most basic of all club formats: 4 walls, a pa-system, fog and strobe
       light, no seats, no hang-outs for observers - everything belongs to the dancefloor.

       wasted 2 featuring a wide range of artists of many different breakcore styles,
       representing many different international scenes. basically, it’s a celebration of
       a style of music largely spread and centred online, but this celebration isn’t
       a bunch of geeks talking about software.

       wasted 3 - cut-up samples from metal, hip-hop, ragga, disco and whatever else the
       digital scissors pick as their prey; irregular beats accelerated to the max, abrupt
       breaks and deafening fuss, all woven into tracks that fuse wicked wit with brutality
       and roguish laughter with abysmal darkness.

       wasted 5 continues to push the boundaries of hard, fast, performative music. this
       edition will also feature a new concept to such a large event, a second stage
       organized by open application. 15 emerging artists from 7 countries across the eu
       will play 20 minute sets throughout the evening - their inclusion and order based
       on a simple application and lottery.
