DJ set Blade & Beard

Blade& Beard (i.e. Anoosh and Arash) are two DJ’s, whose music embodies the word “underground”. In their home Iran their parties were illegal and took place in top secret locations. Anoosh and Arash knew that defying the government might have equaled death. Still for years they set up illegal rave parties in Tehran. For these two DJ’s and their audience techno was not only a possibility of escape into dance, but also a manifestation
of resistance against the government and an attempt to create a community outside the frames set by the country. Anoosh and Arash, after a phone call from the biggest techno festival in the world in Switzerland, made a tough decision about irrevocably leaving Iran. The audience of this year’s festival will be able to learn about the history of the group shown in “Raving Iran” and take part in their DJ set.
