Manchester welcomes FutureEverything for another year
Blog by Molly Jones under Live, Music Training & Careers
Manchester’s Future Everything festival, held from 11th to 14th May, has now released its music programme. Formally Future Sonic and now in its sixteenth year, it offers its biggest and most diverse programme yet from dubstep, bassline, techno, house to punk, indie, rock and folk.
Highlights include an evening with Grammy award winning Steve Reich performing with the Royal Northern College orchestra, Brooklyn’s Das Racist giving their first UK performance, LA’s Warpaint and hotly tipped bands Beach House, Fucked Up, Brothers Unconnected and Gang Gang Dance, amongst many others. FutureEverything is also collaborating with club nights such as Micron, Contort Yourself and Drumclinic & Selective Hearing to give live sessions from Martyn, Daedelus, Kyle Hall and Alex Smoke to name a few.
To give the festival an extra twist there are exclusive one-off live film score realisations with BBC Radio 1’s Rob Da Bank re-scoring King Kong and 65daysofstatic re-scoring Silent Running.
Daytime during the festival there are various art installations throughout Manchester and a two day conference focusing on digital technology.
