Algorave is an open and growing community. We’re always happy to hear from new live coding or algorithmic music performers – even if it would be your first gig, and we’d be particularly interested to hear from performers who belong to underrepresented groups. Get in touch via the Contact page if you’re interested in performing at future Algoraves or if there’s an Algorave happening near you that you’d like to perform at!


Algorave at AlgoMech festival

AlgoMech (the Festival of Algorithmic and Mechanical Movement) is a festival taking place for the first time in Sheffield, UK, 12-19th Nov 2016, bringing together algorithmic and mechanical approaches to performing arts, and celebrating the “performance of making”.

The festival will include a full-on Algorave on Friday 18th Nov in Millennium Gallery, featuring top notch algorithmic producers from around the world, mixing in a couple of artists who create mechanical rather than algorithmic systems in the creation of Techno.

Full info, including lineup + tickets on the algomech website.
