One of the themes of the festival is new collaborations and we have curated some special one-off match-ups that should prove to be fascinating and historic meetings of musical minds:
Motte w/ Omit
King Homeboy w/ Jonny Marks
Jeff Henderson w/ Gamelan Padhang Moncar
Cave Circles w/ Meeps

Composer Rosie Langabeer has been commissioned to write a new piece for large ensemble especially for the festival.
