Berlin Festival 2013 "WOO HOO"

“WOO HOO” indeed. Shoegaze originals My Bloody Valentine have just been added to the line-up for Berlin Festival 2013. This year’s festival is already looking pretty incredible, with British bands Blur and the Pet Shop Boys joined by relative newcomers Savages and Dillon, as well as a huge contingent from Ed Banger Records and local heroes Ellen Allien and Fritz Kalkbrenner, brother of Berlin Calling star Paul. Despite all of that, and the promise of more to come, it’s Kevin Shields and co. we’re most excited about seeing. So check out this rough and raw footage of MBV way back in 1989, and join us on Tempelhof field in September to see the real thing:
