Conflux Festival 2024 drops the first wave of its awaited lineup!

Conflux Festival returns for its third edition from September 19-22, 2024, across various locations throughout Rotterdam like Plein 1940, Brutus, Katoenhuis featuring a boundary-pushing programme of audiovisual performances, public art interventions, exhibitions, an experimental club night, and talks reflecting on the festival theme: Symbiotic Realities. Passe-partout tickets are available through this link.

The four-day Conflux Festival continues to explore the evolving relationships between humans, machines, and nonhuman intelligences through art, music, science, and philosophy. The theme 'Symbiotic Realities' addresses the impact of the technoscientific landscape on our daily lives and the global humanitarian crises unfolding in both the physical world and cyberspace. Rounding up the trilogy (previously: Exit Human in 2022 and Living Machines in 2023), this edition delves into potential approaches for coexistence and mutual understanding between humanity, technology, and nature.

Contemporary experimental music

Headliners include Bristol-based Roly Porter, formerly half of Vex'd, in collaboration with visual artist Theresa Baumgartner. Aho Ssan, a key figure in contemporary experimental music, will join Amsterdam-based visual artist Heleen Blanken. Resina, from Poland’s vibrant independent music scene, and feedback society are other names prominently featuring in the performance lineup.

The exhibition programme will showcase interdisciplinary light and sound artist Jeroen Alexander Meijer with his kinetic light installation, as well as works from Renzo van Steenberger & Kristjan Pütsep, Macular and Mariska de Groot & Dieter Vandoren.

Saturday will see a one-day conference at Debatpodium Arminius where thinkers, makers, and artists will critically reflect on the theme 'Symbiotic Realities.' Followed in the night, by a transcendental club night, hosted for the first time at Club Perron.
