From September 5 to 8, 2012, DISK orgnaizes the ICAS SUITE BERLIN, a unique, collaborative music festival that evolved from the collaboration of more than 35 festivals and music initiatives around the globe. Four days brimming with concerts, club nights, and workshops at venues around the Kotbusser Tor open up a colorful panorma of leftfield pop music holding out on the fringes of forced marketability. Next to numerous highlights, the ICAS SUITE BERLIN showcases a great deal of talent yet to be discovered from the home turfs of the participating festivals.

In the ICAS – International Cities of Advanced Sound – network, a group of 34 organisations and festivals on 5 continents join forces to promote independent and artistically daring music cultures and give each other mutual support. On the invitation of DISK's CTM Festival, the ICAS SUITE BERLIN within the Berlin Music Week sees ICAS member organizations and other international festivals join forces with Berlin labels and music initiatives to test and spark new collaborations.
