The electro-music festival, sometimes called the “Woodstock of electronic music,” is the world’s premiere event for experimental electronic music. Now in its tenth year, the gathering this year features three “mind-bending” days of innovative electronic music concerts, seminars, workshops, demonstrations, jam sessions, video art, a laptop battle, and a swap-meet.
