FESTIVAL: Convergence


Music + Art + Technology  = Convergence

If that maths makes sense to you, 10 – 20 March 2016 is going to be a rather enjoyable period for you London music calendar. Convergence is back for its third edition with a line-up celebrating musical pioneers, visual artists and technologists. Highlights include saxophone maverick Colin Stetson and a celebration of Gil Scott-Heron featuring Kwabs, Jamie Woon, Dave Okumu, Nadine Shah, Loyle Carner, Gwilym Gold.

Convergence Sessions adds a discursive dimension to the programme — a series of talks, workshops, panels, performances and installations take place from 17-19 March at Ace Hotel Shoreditch (full sessions programme).

Dan Deacon has also been announced as the festival’s first artist in residence in a role combining workshops, sessions and gigs — a neat embodiment of Convergence’s raison d’être. Get on down.

Convergence runs 10 – 20 March at venues including BarbicanRoundhouse, Scala, St John on Bethnal GreenVillage Underground, Troxy and KOKO. Full line-up here.
