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.

Berlin’s Densehall is one year old and they are celebrating with a massive party at Chez Jacki – this Saturday Aug 27th. Bringing bass music heavyweights Slugabed and Anstam, the event also features My Dry Wet Mess, MFO, Silverman and the Dense All Stars. Beginning at 11pm the party will be preceded by an all day Voodoo market – not the place to by Hex’s and voodoo dolls, but somewhere to get tattoos, unique art pieces, food and a hair cut. Whilst listening to a selection of DJ’s. Of course. More info on the market here and the party here.
