3hd returns this year with special theme: System.Lure

Taking place in Berlin and online, the festival hopes to challenge “the powerful systems that dominate our world”

Berlin based festival 3hd will run this year between 23 and 27 October. This year the event sets its sights on challenging dominant worldly structures and systems with the new theme System.Lure.

Before the main event, the programme kicks off with the pre-festival gig Takedown at Berlin's Klosterruine on 20 September, and featuring felicita and YATTA. There will also be an afterparty at ACUD theater.

Artist announced so far include: MHYSA, Casey MQ, Simone C Niquille, FAUNA, QT, Josefin Arnell, Salim Bayri, Philipp Bergmann & Thea Reifler, Nadah El Shazly, Golin, Georges Jacotey, Yony Leyser, STILL, Alexa Vachon, Bob Vylan, and Ydegirl.

3hd takes place at various venues across Berlin. Tickets for the pre-party can be found on Resident Advisor.
