The Lunchmeat Festival, contrary to its name, is an event that has higher aesthetic aspirations. It’s not an event which extolls the aural or the visual but strives to merge these two senses in an audiovisual journey that brings together fans of either medium. Usually, a musician performs with a visualist in a special live set.
The third installment of the fledgling festival, is set to take place between the 23rd and 24th of March in Prague across various venues. While MeetFactory will satisfy your ears with the custom-made soundsystem, the OKO cinema will titilate your eyes. A mutual project by Hyperdub‘s Steve Goodman aka Kode9 – who will perform twice at the festival, in both club and art contexts – and the visual collective MFO will deliver a special audiovisual homage to the classic scifi La Jetée, a dark claustrophobic journey that first premiered at the Unsound Festival in October. DMX Krew, Author and Hecq will perform alongside a leading crop of VJs at the MeetFactory.
