D.A.F.

D.A.F. (D) are historically seen as the founders of the EBM-genre.
When their debut “Kebabtraume” came out in 1981, they called it themselves “Elektronische Körpermusik” and a new musicgenre was born.
Since then this duo (Gabi Delgado and Robert Görl) were like an unmissable chain from the electronic scene with “Alles ist gut” and “Gold und Liebe” being one of the most important albums ever and being cited by almost every musician as being an influence.

Laibach

Laibach (Slo), this Slovenian avant-garde music group will celebrate this year their 30th anniversary with the release of “Laibach revisited” which is a sort of “Best of”-album.  
This album will contain the essential tracks that made them two decades again one of the most influential bands in the industrial and martial scene.
At BIMFEST you’ll get the unique chance to see Laibach performing their early hymns or the best moments of 30 years Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK)!

The Kids

The Kids (B) needs no introduction in Belgium as they were without any doubt the most important punkband from over here. Even if it’s 30 years later anthems like “Fascist Cops” or “No Monarchy” have more meaning than ever before. After the commercial “Living in the 20th century” highlight they called it a day. But since last years The Kids are touring the world . Regarding the positive reactions from their latest gigs it seems like Belgium belongs to that list.

The Bollock Brothers

The Bollock Brothers (GB) were never ashamed to cause controversy. Be it their own version of “Never Mind The Bollocks” or having the guest vocals from Michael Fagin (the guy who was arrested for sneaking into Buckingham Palace), Jock McDonald always did it with style. For this new wave/punkband Belgium has become a sort of second playground so get your gear ready to start dancing to cultclassics like “Horror Movies” or “The last supper”.

Autodafeh

Autodafeh (S) (named after the SPK-album Auto Da Fé) got born in 2007 and in little time this trio became one of the most promising acts from the EBM-genre. With an ever growing fanbase Autodafeh released this year the highly acclaimed “Identity Unknown” on which they got the collaboration from both Daniel B (Front 242) and Claus Larsen (Leather Strip). Some say they’re a bit like Nitzer Ebb, others claim Front 242 but the more you got to hear them, the more you hear Autodafeh.

De Brassers

De Brassers (B) can definitely be seen as real monuments of the dark Belgian popscene from the 80’s. Their bizarre mixture that was half  new wave and half cold wave got even the attention of the British NME who declared them as “mean and modern chaps”.
These legends recently celebrated their 30th birthday and recent gigs proved that in 2010 they’re still a band that matters. Once hated by the masses in the 80’s as they were considered being too much an outsider, 30 years later they’re hailed as a Belgian institution.

Sturm Café

Sturm Café (S) conquered the EBM-market with their album “So Seelisch, So Schön” some years ago but despite raving reviews they decided to split up. 2010 is not only the year of their rebirth but also the year that brings them to BIMFEST and as they’ve been compared more than once to DAF, the choice of having them this year is more than justified. This Swedish old-school EBM act is an absolute must for everyone who once sold his heart to the mighty Nitzer Ebb-beat.

Din-A-Tod

Din-A-Tod (D) were responsible for one of the musical highlights of 2009 as their debut “Westwerk” on Out Of Line could capture the spirit of the early eighties very well (sometimes with a club appeal). With their “Warsaw”-cover they could even convince the post-punkfans and after having appeared on M’era Luna-Festival, BIMFEST is more than happy to welcome this Berlin-based electronic sensation.

Emotional Violence

Emotional Violence (B) has the honour to open this year’s BIMFEST. After recently having appeared on the highly acclaimed “Underground Belgian Wave Volume 1”-album on Walhalla records, these Belgians  will be back on stage after years of silence. A real blast from the past that will launch you back in days where the sound of minimal synth ruled.
