Event: FutureEverything Festival 2014

Back for its 19th year, FutureEverything Festival will take over Manchester from 27 March to 1 April to showcase the latest in art, music, performance and design. One of the top ideas festivals in the world, FutureEverything commission the uncommissioned, the more futuristic the better (the clue is in the name) and often digital leaning. With events across the city this weekend, FutureEverything is always over too soon but the weekend is a chance to learn a lot and be amazed by new experiences as they put on conferences, music, art and more, using the city as a ‘festival laboratory.’

Here’s our pick of the music…

Thursday 27th March
Darkside
The Ritz
Wonderfully dark, fascinating beats from electronic prodigy Nicolas Jaar and guitarist Dave Harrington from a project which sounds on on paper but in real life works fabulously.

Friday 28th 

Lumiere (Robert Henke)
RNCM
For a spectacular audiovisual experience, the German sound artist will use computer-generated sounds and images to give the crowd a taste of why he’s been heralded as a driving force of contemporary club culture since the early ’90s.

Saturday 29th
Evian Christ
RNCM
Evian Christ will perform live in the theatre, with special guests Koreless, Lorenzo Senni, Visionist and T C F. The young producer reached critical acclaim for his 2012 mixtape Kings and Them (Tri Angle Records), and has since gone on to collaborate with leading electronic acts Purity Ring and Four Tet and produce Kanye West’s controversial Yeezus album.

Sunday 30th
PROJECT: Mooncircle
Soup Kitchen
Left-field, Berlin based collective, Mooncircle, are the perfect choice to close the festival as they specialise in pushing the boundaries of modern music, focussing on unification of organic and electronic. Submerse, Rain Dog and KRTS feature, of which it is the latter’s UK debut.
