There’s a lot of algorave events in the works, check the algoparty page for updates. We’re happy though to share the news that Algorave is awarded the alternative F.A.T. NIKA. All our love to the F.A.T. (Free Art and Technology) crew. If you are an algoraver or feel deserving you can download the 3D file from F.A.T and drop by a hacklab to print your own trophy.

Mexico City, the home of the legendary /* vivo */ festival and maybe the most vibrant live coding culture around, have an Algorave coming up on 7th June 2014 with a super lineup. This is the first of a series of events at the newly opened Centro de Cultura Digital. Get there if you can, code and mezcal go too well together. Official info here.

On the 4th July, which is the night after the London NIME Algorave, we’ll be heading towards the beaches of Brighton, and an algorave in The Loft. We’re still finalising the line-up, but it’s going to be a huge party with extra special headliners visiting from around the world, including Mexico, Japan, the US and Birmingham… More very soon.
The New Interfaces for Musical Expression conference is a super meeting place for forward-thinking music researchers and musicians, and this year has a huge public programme in association with the fantastic BEAM festival folks, including an algorave. Check out the programme.
FIBER + STEIM are joining forces to put on the first Algorave in Amsterdam, as part of the Code Matter(s) series. There will actually be three days of events from 21st to 23rd March; workshops on day 1, party on day 2, and talks on the final day. More details on their website.
