The new multi-day festival will host performances from Dopplereffekt, The Field, Kode9 and Mount Kimbie.
The Off Centre programme is mainly based around Amsterdam's celebrated Melkweg venue, which has been run by a non-profit organisation since 1970 and has become a central part of the city's clubbing and cultural scene. Like many independent European festivals of its size, Off Centre is looking to bring together film, contemporary dance and visual art with cutting edge electronic music, utilising Melkweg's many different rooms to display their diverse artistic programme. Musically speaking, house, techno, dubstep and electro are all represented, with Dopplereffekt set to perform live on the opening Wednesday. Fans of more melodic tech-house styles are catered for later on that night in the venue's old hall, with Applescal, Patrice Baumel and Brazilian Kompakt star Gui Boratto set to take the controls.
Axel Willner will also represent the Cologne label on the Thursday at Sugar Factory with his full live band, while James Holden, Efdemin, Chloé and Matias Aguayo will head up the four-four-focused bill over in the Melkweg on the same night. Saturday and Sunday, however, will see a shift to more bass-heavy and wonky styles, with Kode9, FaltyDL and Digital Mystikz's set to showcase their selection skills, and additional live sets planned for King Midas Sound, Mount Kimbie, James Blake and Lone.
