Dis-Patch <> Elevate
October 9th / Gun Club / Dis-patch Festival / Belgrade, Serbia
October 21st - 24th / Dom in Berg / Elevate Festival / Graz, Austria
Over the recent years, the region of Middle / SouthEast Europe has become a rich, respectful festival arena. Several events, like Unsound (Krakau), Ultrahang (Budapest), De:sonanz (Skopje), Sajeta (Tolmin), Sonica (Ljubljana) and others, are all offering a very unique take on contemporary music and related related arts programming and cultural activism.
Inevitable actors in this group are both Dis-patch and Elevate festivals, which both play an important role in their respective communities, offering a strong annual selection of international music, art and artistic / social discourse, as well as touring projects and special events. What is the obvious common ground for both events is an affinity for bass-driven music, as well as an urge to leave its base and boldly tour anywhere in the world, presenting their local talent and teaming up with like-minded partners.
After the massive first part of the ViceVerse Tour of USA by Communikey and Dis-patch festivals in Spring 2010, both Dis-patch and Elevate will be promoting their upcoming events this autumn. A logical exchange of showcases emerged, where Atom TM (DE/CL), Sweatshoppe (USA) and Elevate residents Feelipa (CRO), and Simon/off as well as Yukon, Fnord & Marv will be visiting Belgrade on October 9th for a special joint showcase!
On the other hand, the extended Dis-patch crew will visit Elevate for a full ViceVerse-style residency, including live performances, DJ sets, live video, Ableton Live and video feedback workshops, KidsPatch program, two exhibitions and a presentation of the ViveVerse Tour.
The program will be rounded up by a special Soundscapes event on Sunday October 24th, offering an enjoyable fadeout of the intense Elevate weekend program. The crew will also be bringing some of the most adventurous street artists from Belgrade to participate in the Mind the Gap exhibit produced by Dis-patch, and bomb some murals out around Graz.
The program will feature Wo0, Incredible Bob, Felony Flats, Piece of Shh..., DJ Moodswinger, Sam Campbell, Fuck New Rave, KidsPatch, Kate Lesta, Fat Kid Beny, Salci Balsamico and more. This year, Dis-patch is also presenting showcases at events in Bulgaria and Romania, check the on tour page!
