MUSIC - Scandinavian Electronics Groups
The music program of the Impakt Festival will be a succession of adventures and discoveries this year. Fourteen leading live acts will give us their best in Theater Kikker. Jamie Lidell opens the festival on Wednesday with a performance that promises to be spectacular as ever. Three electronic groups from Scandinavia will turn the second evening into a true listening evening. Friday will bring free jazz and daring improvisations. There will be a long program on Saturday, starting with a potpourri of innovative but readily danceable electronics and ending with the traditional Impakt Saturday night party. A beautiful audio-visual concert will provide the music program with a fitting final on Sunday.
