Ableton has announced that their 2018 Loop summit for music makers will take place in Los Angeles on November 9–11 this year.
The three-day exploration of music, technology and creative practice will move beyond Berlin for the first time, setting up in Hollywood for three days of talks, performances and hands-on workshops. Ticket registrations for the limited-capacity event will open on June 13.
This year the program will be spread across a selection of neighboring venues. Confirmed locations include EastWest Studios and the Montalban Theatre, a century-old theater that is now a community hub for aspiring artists.
Participants from previous years have included Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Suzanne Ciani, Holly Herndon, Jace Clayton and Laurel Halo.
You can sign up for 2018 program news via the Loop site.
Launched by Ableton in 2015, Loop is a three-day summit with a broad range of performances, talks, and interactive workshops, all aimed at exchanging ideas at the cutting edge of music, technology, and creative practice. Bringing together artists, technologists, educators, and other creative thinkers, Loop is a collective exploration of what it is to make music today and what it could be tomorrow.
