Festivalul rokolectiv

Festival for electronic music and related visual arts
27, 28, 29 January/ MNAC/

!The Beginning!

Hard to imagine and hard to digest, Bucharest is the only place where such festivals don’t happen. This is urgent!
We’ve all hidden our frustration and succeeded to fight against isolation.
We all ran to take a closer look to frenetic creative hotbeds like London, Paris, Tokyo or Berlin and then returned to spread the rumor.
Rokolectiv is the long awaited for international festival for electronic music and digital culture in Bucharest. With the creative effervescence that only festivals have, Rokolectiv digs for Romanian emerging talents and dispatches international artists, big “darlings” of similar music festivals such as Sonar in Barcelona, Club Transmediale in Berlin or Villette Numerique in Paris.

This year you’ll see/ hear:

electronic music that can’t live without punk, check out this guy, Electronicat

New York’s My Robot Friend, an elusive and mysterious carbonbased machine

the yelling dream of Fennesz computer and the sublime noise that creates addiction

Mlada Fronta, back to Romania after AVmotional 02, to celebrate the cinema of John Carpenter

new Czech sensations from the live electronic label Muteme, Materidouska and Jezis Tahne na Berlin

Romanian artists with new live acts Yvat & Cut Raw, Gojira & Kosak/ MiKa, Brazda lui Novac/ Dilmana, and Discordless, a smart mixture of industrial, electro, idm and powernoise
