roBOt Festival has announced the first 10 artists scheduled to play the international festival dedicated to electronic music and digital arts which takes place every autumn in Bologna, Italy.

The current list of confirmed ‘live’ artists includes Squarepusher (a.k.a. “Tom Jenkinson”), the UK artist who has been considered to be one of the greatest prodigies in the electronic scene for over two decades now. In preparation for the festival, he is preparing a project where drum’n’bass, acid house and jazz are insanely and brilliantly accelerated.

Also scheduled to perform is Powell (a.k.a. “Oscar Powell”), one of the most incandescent talents of techno music and Clark, an artist who does not follow the herd of the trends who will be presenting a psychedelic and dazed live techno set.

Among the DJ-sets there will be Trentemøller, an artist who rarely tours as a DJ, Nina Kraviz (a.k.a. “Damela Ayer”), the acclaimed producer/singer/DJ of Siberian origins who has become known for her characteristic acid, techno and house vibrations; and Ben UFO, one of the most talented DJs of the last decade.

Completing the list of artists included in the announcement are Evian Christ [Live], Levon Vincent [DJ], Nathan Fake [Live] and Sherwood & Pinch [Live], all of whom will be performing as part of the collaboration between roBOt Festival and Red Bull Music Academy.

The 8th edition RoBOt Festival will take place in Bologna, Italy from October 7 – October 10.
