Many treats added to the boldly curated festival.

The fifth edition of Rewire Festival takes place in The Hague from May 1-2, and it’s shaping up to be magic weekend for fans of sleazy noise, blackened techno, post-rock grandeur and all manner of leftfield and underground experiments.

Tri Angle producer and Kanye cohort Evian Christ and Nordic sparring partners Jenny Hval & Susanna are among the latest to join the bill, alongside previously announced acts Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Grouper, with Mr Christ presenting a new audio-visual show in collaboration with Emmanuel Biard.

Ron Morelli and Powell will go head to head for a fearsome L.I.E.S. versus Diagonal club night with evergreen loonies Shit And Shine, Svengalisghost and Bronze Teeth.

Mancunian cosmic-kraut types Gnod and hypnotic guitarist Oren Ambarchi have also been added, along with Thomas Ankersmit, Lorn, Saskia Lankhoorn & Kate Moore, Yodok III and Siinai.

Day tickets, weekend passes and venue tickets are on sale now from Rewire, with more names and locations are soon to be announced. Hotel packages are on sale from February 6.
