SPLICE FESTIVAL, the UK’s only dedicated live audiovisual arts festival will open in London this summer, 3rd - 5th June. The brand new event brings together a host of incredibly diverse artists from around the globe for a three-day feast of live cinema, audio/video remixing and visual music from both established and emerging talent with performances, workshops, talks and networking events.
Boasting a live AV performance by Cassetteboy as headline act, the festival programme also includes a special DJ set by Plaid (Warp Records), a live AV remix set from Addictive TV, abstract visual electronica from Sculpture, bass heavy electro AV from Germany’s award-winning Incite, video turntablism from Solid Steel’s DJ Cheeba, live cinema from The Light Surgeons, French analogue wizards Bunq & Eb, plus music from Mixmaster Morris and Mexico’s Incognito Traveller (BBE records), and many more.
Supported by the Arts Council England and the EU’s Creative Europe programme, SPLICE is the UK branch of the wider cultural project AV Node, linking 13 similar art and technology festivals across Europe, supporting and developing the fields of live video performance.
Tickets range from £5 - £12.50 and are available to purchase directly through the SPLICE Festival website. All workshops and talks are free.
