Ableton has announced the first wave of artists for next year’s Loop Summit, taking place April 24 to 26 in Berlin, Germany.

The first-wave artist announcement includes Sylvia Massy, a US-based engineer and producer who has worked with acts including Johnny Cash, REM, and Tool; Mexican duo Sotomayor, who will perform and share their experience with the art of sampling; and UK-based quartet Ex-Easter Island Head, who will host a music improv session and a studio session, showing some of the techniques they use to create unique sounds through the art of repetition.

Loop 2020 will also host a range of performances and workshops with artists using off-grid methods, such as the unorthodox vocal performances of Colin Self, virtuoso percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, New York-based instrument builders Antenes and Eric Pitra, and pioneering acts like Deena Abdelwahed, Joel Holmes, and Cody Currie.
