2007 Festival Recap
Music For The Beep Generation, the Futuresonic festival's
central music strand, spanned musical generations and genres, from the
cutting edge of today's electronica including Apparat and Sleeparchive, to
the likes of French hip-hop sensation TTC, alongside Alexander Robotnick,
Kraftwerk's Wolfgang Flur, and legendary music pioneers, Faust.
Futurevisual celebrated the 40th anniversary of seminal multi-media
events that took place in the halcyon year of 1967. The famous UFO
Club, the focus of the 60's London multi-media scene, was reborn at
Futuresonic 2007. Futurevisual brought together legendary figures
from the 1960s with some of the most cutting-edge audio-visual artists
working in the world today.
The Social Technologies Summit returned with
a packed lineup of visionary participants, including one session
introducing the leading figures in the grass roots open source
movement that is sweeping across Brazil like wild fire and
captivating the world's imagination.
EVNTS is a showcase for the best new and ground-breaking
events from around the world. Since its introduction in 2005,
EVNTS has grown into a community of people who each year
return to give the festival an extra edge.
