Explorations of Inner landscapes and unknown chambers promised at A L’ARME Festival

Fourth edition of Berlin's A L’ARME Festival to happen in July

Berlin’s A L’ARME Festival returns for its fourth edition in July. This year’s guiding theme is “inner landscapes and unknown chambers”, which, say the festival organisers, should lend “itself as a potent metaphor for almost every emotional state, whether it be joy, curiosity, pain, desire, awe, the sublime, or simply as a space where we search for a sense of déjà vu and ultimately, beauty”.

The programme includes Anna Högberg, Attack, Fire! & Oren Ambarchi, Joe McPhee, Peter Brötzmann & Heather Leigh, Sarah Neufeld, Seval featuring Fred Lonberg-Holm and Sofia Jernberg, and others.

The festival takes place at Berlin Berghain and Berlin Radialsystem from 27–30 July.
