Lapsus Festival marks its fifth edition by strengthening its commitment to cutting edge/avant-garde electronic music and renewing its pledge as a unique selector that provides alternative music trends to other festivals taking place in the city. Lapsus focuses on comfort and quality and seeks to avoid the trappings of large crowd formats.
Lapsus Festival increases its number of days. Friday 6 will feature a very special program dedicated to electronic music pioneers including: German artist and krautrock legend, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, who will exclusively present his new show “En Este Instante”; the visionary American producer and father of the punk sound Craig Leon, will, for the first time in Barcelona, perform music from his albums “Nommos” and “Kanon”; and experimental Hispano-Norwegian duo N.M.O will also perform. The opening day’s program will take place at the CCCB Theatre -co- producer of the event since its inception-. Meanwhile, the night time schedule will also be extended, taking place for the first time at LAUT, the incredible space located in the centre of Barcelona, equipped with the latest generation sound system. On Friday night Lapsus at LAUT will present a showcase from Portuguese label Príncipe Discos, with Dj Lilocox and Dj NinOo closing the April 6 program.
Saturday 7 will host more than 12 uninterrupted hours of music. From 5:00pm the CCCB will present performances from Lee Gamble, D’Arcangelo -a show born out of the collaboration between Lapsus and the Italian Institute of Culture-, Deena Abdelwahed, Photay, Renick Bell, Rrucculla and a b2b set from Philip Sherburne and Tutu. Furthermore, the Sala Raval we will provide the opportunity to experience “Voyage to the End of the World”, a three performance sound odyssey especially designed by Modern Obscure Music, with an exclusive showcase comprised of performances by Island in the Sun –the new alternative project by Pedro Vian-, Defled and duo NYEM. The Saturday night program will see London label Whities enter the DJ booth at LAUT, with British artists Minor Science and Tasker charged with closing the fifth Lapsus Festival.
