XLR8R Heads To Outline
Second edition of the Moscow festival to run over first weekend of July
In a couple weeks’ time, XLR8R will be making the journey to Moscow to take in the second annual Outline Festival. The festival, which runs over July 4 and 5, takes place in the east of the city in what is tantalisingly described as “a soon-to-be-demolished mechanical plant known for producing distinctive objects for architecture icons of Post–World War II Moscow.”
Outline recently finalised the bill for the five stages of electronic music and art that will comprise its 2015 edition. Top names on it include Atom™‘s Double Vision live, Ricardo Villalobos, Pharmakon, Nina Kraviz, Pender Street Steppers, Ben UFO, and Daniel Avery, while a healthy list of local DJs and producers are also slated to appear.
As was the case last year, the festival will also feature a heavy visual and sound-art side, with work appearing by artists and art crews from Russia as well as Germany, Poland, the US, Australia, Spain, and Japan. A video looking back at last year’s edition can be viewed below, while tickets for this year’s edition are available here.
