The ICAS SUITE BERLIN is a unique, collaborative music festival that evolved from the collaboration of more than 35 festivals and music initiatives around the globe.
Four days brimming with concerts, club nights, and workshops at venues around the Kotbusser Tor open up a colorful panorma of leftfield pop music holding out on the fringes of forced marketability.
Next to numerous highlights, the ICAS SUITE BERLIN showcases a great deal of talent yet to be discovered from the home turfs of the participating festivals.
