A very warm welcome to this year's synth festival, Bodyfest at Nalen on the 6th of October.

Leæther Strip [DK]

Bodyfest proudly present one more of the great living EBM-legends of the world, Leæther Strip!

Leæther Strip was founded in Denmark back in 1988 by Claus Larsen and was one of the earliest and most important bands on the legendary German record label Zoth Ommog. Since then they have released at least eighteen albums and have given all friends of heavy Electronic Music hits like "Strap me down", "Evil speaks" and "Torment Me".

Leæther Strip is a never ending EBM-machine and we can promise a really intensive and unforgettable show live on stage!

With thirty years in the EBM-scene, Leæther Strip is one of the most important bands we have presented. With hard and at the same time extremely danceable rhythms, with heavy drums and even a great portion of humour, we are extremely proud to welcome Claus Larsen and Leæther Strip to Sweden and Bodyfest. Strap us all down!

Underviewer [BE]

Finally we have this long awaited booking to look forward too. A band that few people know of but almost everybody has heard before.

Before joining FRONT 242 in 1981 and devoting several decades to this band, Patrick Codenys and Jean-Luc De Meyer worked together as a duo between 1978-1981 under the name Underviewer, using a bass, analog synthesizers, rhythm boxes and a tape recorder. Dormant for over 30 years, Underviewer recovered tracks from their early 4-track tape recordings and even recreated some of them by reusing the same vintage machines for the release in December 2016 of their first full length album "Wonders & Monsters"

Diesel Dudes [US]

The Bodyfest crew are thrilled to present these dumbell lifting strongmen from Oakland, California, as a part of the line-up this year. After shows at both Familientreffen and Kalabalik has the American band, formed in 2010, become known to the European EBM scene.

Diesel Dudes songs are all about muscles, going to the gym and adrenaline delivered in a danceable, energizing, electro punky way. Their self-titled genre "UNDERPRODUCED SWEATY, HYPER ROMAN ELECTRO PUNK FOR YOU TO HEAR WHILE YOUR BODY IS GROWING STRONGER" describes quite well what to expect of the show on the small stage of Bodyfest.


Bodyfest will take place at Nalen, located at Regeringsgatan 74, Stockholm, Sweden.


Nalen have their own restaurant in the same building as Bodyfest.
Tabbouli, Regeringsgatan 70, serve Lebanese food.
Serwito, Regeringsgatan 77, serve Italian food.
Niklas, Regeringsgatan 66.

There is also a bunch of restaurants at Kungsgatan, two blocks south of Nalen. Your Bodyfest ticket is valid the whole evening, so if you are hungry you can go out and come back later.
