Juliana Huxtable, Aïsha Devi, Raica and Carlos Souffront are also booked for the Vancouver event in September.
This year, the festival will return to its old home at the Centre For Digital Media campus on Great Northern Way. As usual, the lineup is a mixture of live acts and DJs. Among the high-profile selectors are Peverelist, DJ Stingray, Carlos Souffront and Vladimir Ivkovic, who will be making his North American debut. Live acts include Juliana Huxtable performing a specially commissioned piece, Further Records' Raica, JTC's Charles Manier project, Aleksi Perälä, Bill Converse, Aïsha Devi and a collaboration between Sinjin Hawke and Zora Jones. More names will be announced later.
In addition to the weekend programming at the Centre For Digital Media, there will also be an all-day symposium at the Western Front gallery in Mount Pleasant on Saturday, September 30th.
