First announcement

Backslash Festival is happy to announce the first batch of artists confirmed for the upcoming edition of the festival. Among our own long-time wishlist darlings are the infamous A/V show from Techno Body Music Schwefelgelb, a journey into the mesmerising world of Rotterdam’s Nadia Struiwigh and her intricate synth arrangements, a hyper sonic live set by Danish sound sorceress SØS Gunver Ryberg, the protest-performance-party PINK MON€Y from South Africa describing the purchasing power of the LGBTI+ community, the blasting live collaboration Savage Grounds between CCO and Lux Rec’s Daniele Cosmo, the uncompromising live act of Warsaw based techno ambassadress VTSS and French Darkwave delivered by H ø R D.

The musical roster is further brimming with quality such as Zurich’s OUS-label head honcho Ink!, modular mayhem master Mateo Hurtado, Tbilisi’s Saphileaum, the ever uncompromising Bonnie or out-of-the-box-thinking molekühl and a funky venue-specific performance by the collective MusicForEggplant. We are more than happy to complement the lineup with some of the best from the west with Dimette, Payuta, Vighil and OneFootStep. And last, but not least, beware of Olan Galactica’s long-duration live modular techno or Backslash’s very own face-melter Rubinsteig.

The complete performance and visual arts programme will be revealed progressively until October, together with more musical acts. More informations about the artists and selected projects, the festival and the new venue are available on our all-new website.
