BreakFest Music Festival 2022
Havlišúv mlýn – Jindřichovice 37
Now we will introduce you to the already confirmed headliners of this year.
The main driver of the festival will be the band HENGE from England, which you could hear and see with your own eyes in our former club Mayapur Pokojíček. For those who don’t know who we are talking about, Henge is a band that plays music that comes from the Rave scene, and in their songs you will hear elements of IDM, acid house and break in live performance. They all perform in crazy costumes and masks, so their performance has theatrical elements. It’s no wonder that this band has exploded onto the scene like a rocket, instantly winning thousands of new fans around the world. In 2019 they were named the best new domestic band in England and immediately headed to the big stages of European festivals. Unfortunately, like them, Covid changed our plans quite a bit.
We were lucky enough to get to know them before they became stars, we are friends and they are happy to come to Breakfest as they like it here You can find out more about Henge here on their website. https://www.hengemusic.com
Henge will open the festival on Friday and will play from 10pm, so if anyone is coming to see this band in particular come early! Friday night will be a fancy dress night and basically the whole festival will be in the spirit of masks and costumes, so get ready to get creative as we will be rewarding a few of you with merch for your original costume, both from us and the band of your choice! Henge will be bringing their own merch, so if you’re interested in their t-shirts or vinyls, they’ll be available at their makeshift booth. After Henge’s performance there will be a short special performance by KOSMONAUT just off the main stage, this will last about 30 minutes and the Henge band will take you there in a parade after their performance.
After that the party will start so a little after midnight Breakfest will go in its traditional proper techno style. Overnight, the underground techno to tekno lovers will always come into their own and the afternoon will be more chilled out as usual.
The lineup is headlined by English techno legend COLIN DALE. Colin is one of the true roots of the English techno scene, and since the second half of the eighties when he started playing at local festivals and parties and then from the late nineties when he played on pirate radio Kiss FM he has earned the respect of everyone who matters in the scene. You’ll find his name on the first Prodigy LPs in the respect section and that’s just the initial list of superlatives. More about Colin later.
Our traditional guests are Mickey Meltdown, Ixy and the rest of the audiotrix crew we started the festival with will surely arrive.
Darc Marc is our next guest and he’s a veteran of London Acid parties like the Liberators, Dave the Drummer and co. We really like his production and he will be performing live.
Breakfest 2022 - Artists
We are not from this world. We bring you music from distant planets. We offer this gift for the edification of humankind… so that eventually your species may put an end to war and set up new homes in space. Extra-terrestrial joymongers – HENGE – have been delighting audiences in the UK and Europe since they landed on Planet Earth seven years ago. Their scintillating live performances earned them ‘Best Live Act’ at the Independent Festival Awards and they have since cemented their reputation with two acclaimed albums, numerous tours and regular main-stage festival appearances. Their music escapes definition, but occupies a space between rave and prog rock that nobody knew existed. It is energetic, subversive and invigoratingly playful, jovially going ‘where no one has gone before’. Ultimately, HENGE are spreading a message of hope which leaves audiences feeling amused and uplifted in equal measures.
To call Colin Dale "legendary" is no over-estimation.......here is a Dj that has been one of London's most cutting edge Djs for over 20 years and still continues to surprise and marvel.

Guests on the show included All the UR crew, Hawtin, Angel, Pullen, Garnier, Saunderson, Craig, May, Cox......the list goes on and .. the show was put on the internet in 1993 Colin became a household name in Techno circles Worldwide.

A cultural leader when it comes to spreading the word, love and appeal of techno music the world over, the UK’s Jerome Hill is a living legacy. From running five extraordinary and much-loved record labels - DON’T, Super Rhythm Trax, Bleeper, Hornsey Hardcore & Fat Hop - to decades spent managing record shops and playing illegal raves in London - Jerome Hill is a life dedicated to music. Technically one of the best mixers around, and one of the few to successfully integrate scratching and turntablism into techno and rave - alongside his hip hop, funk and soul sets - Hill’s first priority is always the atmosphere and vibe of the room. Revelling in the shared experience by tweaking atmospheres and deftly bouncing between moods, Hill’s 'hands on' mixing style motions from dramatic and humourous all the way to obscure and techno-serious thanks to decades of experience behind the decks. Respected as a DJs DJ - and never the diva - Jerome Hill can be spotted deftly balancing a shaky turntable and half-full beer on Trailer TV, to dropping bombs for a booming techno session with FOLD, or sharing the decks with Manni Dee on Rinse FM. Forever keeping hope alive for both punters and artists alike, Jerome Hill’s DON’T parties have furthermore reconnected his veteran crowd with a new reach of fans, that despite the ups and downs of modern life, keep the new school raver, old school head and music lover united all the same.

"Before meeting Spiral Tribe in 1991, Ixindamix lived on the road with a horse and cart and moved across the British countryside with the horse-drawn travellers. Whenever she found a good site for a party she’d give the Spirals a call and the sound system would be magically spirited in. Ixindamix began her musical career in 1992 after leaving the horse-drawn and joining the Spiral’s convoy of matt black trucks. Collecting records with an irrepressible energy, she quickly became one of the sound system’s central performers. With her DJ sets filling floors week after week, she began honing her synthesiser skills in the sound system’s mobile studio. The resulting livesets rapidly became popular in countries all over Europe, and she became well known for her tantalising analogue improvisation and twinkling frequency mischief. Co-founding the Audiotrix record label in 2000, she has steered it to a position of respect and helped break a stream of new artists on the label. Adding an online digital and vinyl shop to Audiotrix in the last two years, she is a pivotal figure in the European scene. Today, Ixindamix plays at international events every weekend while working in the studio through the week. Injecting charisma and sparkling personality into every set, her ability to whip a dancefloor into sheer euphoria has made her highly sought after across the continent. "
