¹Pop-Kultur; noun - Music festival for Berlin, this year being held from August 31 to September 2 in Neukölln, following 2015 premiere at Berghain; comprises live concerts, performances, talks, and readings at a wide variety of venues. [Note: Pop-Kultur Berlin will shine a light on Berlin's busy music scene, while meeting the standards of internationality and diversity one would expect to experience in 2016]. Line-up currently being finalised: further announcements will be made at http://www.pop-kultur.berlin/
²Atomic; noun - Name of reworked version of music recorded for soundtrack to Mark Cousins' documentary Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise. [Reference: Band guitarist Stuart Braithwaite told The Quietus, "The Atomic soundtrack is one of the most intense and fulfilling projects we've taken on as a band. Ever since we went to Hiroshima to play and visited the peace park this has been a subject very close to us. The end results, both the film score and the record, are pieces I'm extremely proud of."]
³August 30; Edit - actually the day before Pop-Kultur 2016 begins. [Note: Organisers so excited about having the opportunity to present this Mogwai project in Berlin that they "relaxed the rules somewhat". Pop-Kultur toyed with the idea of calling this event a 'pre-opening' or even a `satellite event', but this all seemed very confusing, so eventually they just reconciled themselves to accepting that this event is just a day early.] N.B: This is the only scheduled live performance of Atomic in Germany.
⁴Location — MITTE. As previously mentioned, Pop-Kultur 2016 will take place entirely in Neukölln across a variety of venues. However, as this particular event is not strictly part of the main programme and as Pop-Kultur couldn't find a suitable venue in Neukölln, they decided to stage it at Admiralspalast, Mitte. Quote: "We think Mitte is great, too, we're not anti-Mitte: it's just that because Pop-Kultur 2016 will take place entirely in Neukolln from August 31 to September 2, we felt we had some explaining to do."
