The experimental festival will return to Essen for three days in October.
Now in its sixth year, the experimental festival is an offshoot of Denovali Records, a label based in Bochum, Germany. Aside from the avant-garde artists that make up the program, one thing that makes the festival unique is its "renunciation of the headliner principle"—everyone on the bill is treated equally, and given equal set lengths. This year's bill includes Moritz Von Oswald Trio, Murcof, Philip Jeck and American drone outfit A Winged Victory for the Sullen. To better familiarize you with the rest of the festival's lineup, Denovali have kindly provided a free 30-track sampler for download.
