The buzz over this year’s Bread & Butter by Zalando gets taken up a notch today: M.I.A. will headline the opening night on Friday, while FKA twigs leads the lineup for Saturday night at The Festival of Style and Culture this weekend, September 1 to 3. On Sunday, the Austrian indie pop heavyweights, Bilderbuch, will close the festival after three days of the latest in fashion, music and food presented at Berlin’s Arena complex. View the full music lineup, the overall festival schedule, and buy your tickets here.

Bolstering the festival vibes even further, the headliners join Vienna’s cloud rap boy Yung Hurn (aka “Fiona Swarovski Junior”), the Chicago footwork legend Traxman and Lisbon’s Principe Discos crew member and upcoming ‘bad and dope’ sensation Nidia.


Backing this up: a special DJ set from the living legend that is Wyclef Jean is on the cards, while rising German rapper RIN (who, like Yung Hurn, calls the Berlin-based Live From Earth collective his crew) will be dropping bars. The independent style magazine, Indie, host the first official Bread & Butter afterparty on Friday night while the queer side of culture is repped through the Bold Ball, the official Bread & Butter afterparty on the Saturday night, soundtracked by NYC’s Byrell The Great and Berlin’s Lucy Liu Ninja (full details here).
