The London event's third edition will run for ten days next March.
The events series will take place at a number of locations, including Village Underground, Troxy, KOKO and The Roundhouse, with Actress, Lamb, The Gaslamp Killer, !!! (Chk Chk Chk), Darkstar, Omar Souleyman, Clap! Clap!, Larry Gus and Kutmah all set to perform.
Part of the programme includes a tribute to soul and jazz great Gil Scott-Heron at The Roundhouse on Sunday, March 13th. Directed by The Invisible's Dave Okumu and held in partnership with XL Recordings, the event will see the likes of Jamie Woon and Kwabs reinterpreting Scott-Heron's music.
Convergence festival director Glenn Max says: "While there is no single theme to this year's array of installations, talks, and concerts, a recurring idea is the re-materialisation of culture beyond its digital vaporisation. Technology provides all of the instruments for innovation but—for it to mean something to our human culture—we need the disruptive ingenuity and emotional investment of artists."
Further details of Convergence 2016 will be revealed soon.
Tickets to Convergence 2016 are available here on RA.
