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.
04. - 05.02.2005 wasted 1
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.
02. - 03.09.2005 wasted 2
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.
23.09.2006 wasted 3
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.
26. - 27.01.2007 wasted 4
wasted 4 blurring the lines between breakcore, punk, grindcore, performance art and
noise with a wall shaking acoustic-meets-digital assault.
19.05.2007 wasted 5
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.
25.05.2007 wasted versus overkill
wasted versus overkill - wasted teams up with london’s overkill to put on a 1-night
show of frenzied dancing!
25.08.2007 wasted over riga
wasted over riga - a night of speedball-zombie-frenzy with limbs and bones bolting
through the hall, when even the dullest brains get inflamed by fatal sound cascades.
wasted over (your city here) are mini 1-night wasted events that are popping up all over
europe. as always they form a rare team of open minded, fun, and hard-hitting
individuals who's interests go beyond merely having a "good party".
08.03.2008 wasted over prague
wasted over prague - the wasted crew are invited for a one-night frenzy in an old
factory building. as always wasted brought a fine blend of extreme, hard and
danceable music, that makes feet snap and fidget with spastic convulsions.
09.05.2008 wasted over toulouse
wasted over toulouse brings a diverse mixture of extreme music to blow out your ears!
10.05.2008 wasted over marseille
wasted over marseille extend the wasted-profile a bit by inviting artists from the
stranger frinches of hip hop.
03.07.2008 wasted over berlin
wasted over berlin - wasted returns to berlin with a killer line-up and is also
the release party for pencilbreak, the new book from belio magazine. this book
presents art and graphics inspired by hardcore music. naturally, it includes a
multipage feature on the wasted festival, showcasing poster, flyer designs and
photography. this book is meant to be an homage to breakcore and other styles of
hardcore music and corresponding attitudes.
