Follow The Swarm Into The Light

This Monday Lodown hosts a Mix dedicated to the eclectic TransCentury Update Festival, which takes place on the 16.11.2018 to the 18.11.2018 in Leipzig.

TransCentury Update is a festival for adventurous music. The third edition once again teams up with the local visual collective WISP and will for the first time leave the walls of Leipzig's wonderful UT Connewitz, an old Cinema/Theatre built more than 100years ago, to present their program plus in three other historical venues in Leipzig: Conne Island, Kino Bar Prager Frühling and Ilses Erika. In 2016 the first festival edition was held at UT Connewitz only and featured genre breaking bands like Beak>, Bohren und Der Club Of Gore, Deerhoof, Stereo Total, Clinic, Patrick Higgins and many others, after its successfull first edition the festival returned in November 2017 with its first two days focusing on a rather classical festival situation with 3-4 Bands a night, including John Maus, Thurston Moore, Alex Cameron, Jane Weaver and Roy Montgomery and using the sunday as a special seated show presenting the outstanding japanese percussionist Midori Takada. This years main festival programm features 12 bands from around the globe and can be described as a wild mix between japanese future psychedelica, classical indie and experimental music, some say the most interesting line-up so far. A new addition to this years edition is the Festival warm up a week earlier with the UK punk band Idles, John and the german wave-punks Pigeon.
