M’era Luna Festival 2024: The line-up is complete


Led by synth-pop legends VNV Nation, organizer FKP Scorpio has confirmed further acts for the M’era Luna Festival. The line-up of Europe’s biggest gothic festival is now complete and will once again gather around 25,000 guests at the Hildesheim-Drispenstedt airfield on August 10 and 11.

VNV Nation have earned themselves a special reputation: Of course, the core of their sound is consistently electronic, but at the same time the design and effect of their music has always been symphonic and orchestral. It is therefore no coincidence that mastermind Ronan Harris invited the Philharmonie Leipzig to his last and unforgettable visit to M’era Luna. With “Electric Sun”, VNV Nation now deliver new electronic sounds, although the new album is also characterized by the elegiac power and delicately orchestrated dramaturgy that turn the band’s live shows in particular into anthemic masterpieces.

With Epica, a band has been confirmed that also knows how to make grand gestures: The Dutch formation around frontwoman Simone Simons plays symphonic metal that can be as brute as it is fragile. Deine Lakaien will enrich the program with electronic avant-garde, which will also be given a new facet by the metal instance Hämatom. Great industrial metal will be delivered by Deathstars from Sweden, while London After Midnight will be traveling from California. Combichrist will also be flying across the pond to play an old-school set. Also announced are crowd favorites Zeraphine, She Past Away, The Cassandra Complex, [x]-Rx, S.P.O.C.K, Future Lied To Us and Centhron. Hell Boulevard, Schwarzer Engel, Erdling, Eden Weint im Grab, Rroyce, Steril and Extize complete the line-up. The band Universum25 unfortunately had to cancel their performance for logistical reasons. The supporting program and the winning acts of the band contest will be announced at a later date. The complete line-up, information and tickets can be found on the festival website.
