Rewire festival returns to The Hague with a diverse and forward-thinking program.
They join a host of FACT favorites, including Cucina Povera, Dis Fig, Hildur Guðnadóttir presenting her award-winning soundtrack for Chernobyl, Hiro Kone, Lorenzo Senni, Pelada and YATTA.
The 2020 program follows the theme of “(Re)setting”, or as Rewire explains, “examining the way humans and sound relate to changing environments”.
“In an era defined by man’s interaction with nature and advancing technological developments”, says a press release, “(Re)setting responds to new listening experiences, urbanisation, the changing rural landscape and the ecological crisis.”
Additional acts, artist’s talks and workshops are yet to be announced. Festival passes and separate tickets to Jon Hopkins’ Polarity live show are available now. Check out the full list of the first acts announced below.
