The festival focuses on the We Are Europe initiative for this year’s installment.

Elevate Festival, which the event promoters describe as “an interdisciplinary festival for electronic music, art and political discourse,” returns to Graz, Austra this October. In addition to the previously released musical lineup including DJ Earl, Swans, Mount Kimbie and more, the festival also has a “Discourse” lineup of speakers.

Themed around We Are Europe, an initiative aimed to promote cultural exchange and discourse between European countries, the festival will feature talks including award winning journalist and Wikileaks associate Sarah Harrison, poet, Berlin School of Economics and Law professor Birgit Mahnkopf and spoken word artist Saul Williams (who is also performing).

It all goes down October 20-23. Head to Elevate’s website to see the full lineup and pre-order tickets.
