26-27 July 2019
Sponge Sandwich Festival in Berlin, Germany.
Sponge Sandwich is a deliciously absorbent two-day festival of music, performance, and collage, featuring many of the squishiest and most nutritious artists from Europe and beyond.
The festival also acts as a fundraiser towards the upcoming exhibition “Mademoiselle Margarine” – a retrospective of the works of artist and curator Anelor Robin. Endless gratitude to all the artists and audience for their generous support. This festival is dedicated to her loving memory.
Note: A Sponge Sandwich is not for eating.

Hot and hungry? You need a Sponge Sandwich! Intergalactic sound artist Julia Drouhin will bring us edible messages from the end of the universe (Tasmania). Deliciously crusty noise sets from Aleks Slota, der Warst, and C_C will give you a good ear-scrubbing. The highly absorbing performances of Her Highness and Poppy Cox might taste strange, but beware, they act as a highly effective aphrodisiac! Still not full? Fishy fake frenchman Squidwin Triumph (BA, MLitt 1st Class) and real french electro hero Jankenpopp will simultaneously make the internet danceable and digestible. Served with yummy audio sauce from local favorite DJ Michael Aniser.
Sponge Sandwich Festival Day 2: GlueHeads
Come and experience works from the wandering contemporary collage project, GlueHeads. Using a highly spontaneous and collaborative approach, artists working with different collage techniques meet to create works which are then exhibited on the same day. There are already six GlueHeads zines documenting these collage actions, with more to come.
“My best friend was a GlueHead.”

The final night of Sponge Sandwich is going to be wet! Machines will be bubbling, vinyls will be dripping, and a bath of bodies will be dancing. The hot tropical selections of Berliner favorites Eva Geist and Sarah Hamilton will have you swimming in juicy joy. Giallo Disco Records founder and die-hard disco fan DJ Hans Gruber returns to Berlin with a spicy splash of italo-horror. DJ Aperol Spritz is the perfect accompaniment to any sponge sandwich or jacuzzi party. Belgian resident and international freak DJ Divorce Express (Tzii) knows to always say yes to another excess. And Sinead O’Connick Jr., impresario behind Paris’ Serendip Festival/Label and champion of the French Boogie revival, will surely satisfy your thirst to move.
This sandwich is wet! Bring a sponge!
