20-23 July, Manchester
First Acts Announced!!
The 2006 festival takes place over three days traversing music and
the arts, involving multiple and often unusual spaces. It takes in
headline gigs, breaks musical acts, maps the city, premieres ground
breaking technologies, ships in some of the world's most innovative
artists and musicians, and gives Manchester a weekend-long urban
experience not to forget...
Futuresonic Live is all about the music. It's headlined by the
undisputed cover star of minimalism, Christian Fennesz; supported by
Warp Records' new supergroup, the amazing Battles; all the leading
lights of the nascent dubstep scene combined in one killer showcase,
Digital Mystikz, Skream, Kode 9, Plastician; the scuzzy electro-punk
euphoria of Berlin's female duo Cobra Killer; the hottest act around
right now, mysterious grime-folk agitators Various Production; and
much, much more.
Urban Play is all about taking over the city and using the technology
that surrounds us for creative ends. It features world-first
collaborative software projects, art exhibitions, walking tours, hit-
and-run buskers, new musical instruments the likes of which have
never been seen, conferences exploring the rise and impact of shar!
ed, open source and social technologies - and more.
