Crux, known for interactive electronic music and audiovisual (AV) events across the capital, has announced its inaugural Crux Festival on the 13th and 14th of April 2024 at Rich Mix Arts Centre in East London.

Set to feature groundbreaking performances, including The Light Surgeons’ unveiling of their live cinema show ‘Atemporal 2.0,’ AJA’s raw and visceral show, and Waterflower’s avant-pop AV extravaganza from Latvia, the festival promises an electrifying experience.

Attendees can expect a weekend of diverse electronic music and visual performances, as well as a rich tapestry of daytime activities, including talks, Ableton workshops, and open-mic-style electronic music performance slots.

On Saturday, April 13th, attendees will be treated to immersive audio experiences and boundary-pushing AV showcases, as the festival’s program is carefully curated to captivate and inspire audiences of all backgrounds.

The event will open with a video projection mapping workshop from AV expert and electronic artist Dave Stitch. A thought-provoking panel discussion about the prominence of women in electronic music will also occur. The excitement will continue as visionary innovator Toby Spark takes the stage to share the 3D-reactive audiovisual app Volta and the captivating story behind Fuel Records.

As the sun sets on Saturday night following performances from Kareem Samara, I Am FYA and Error CD, the energy will continue to soar with a high-octane afterparty plus appearances from Parallel Action, Polyop, Freddy Frogs, and more.

Sunday’s schedule will focus on engagement, as well as performances from boutique production company The Light Surgeons, Ross Flight, plus more.

An interactive workshop from DMLab (a space for disabled and non-disabled musicians and technologists) will allow attendees to explore accessibility in electronic music. Audiovisual jam sessions will create an inclusive atmosphere, making everyone welcome to join in and contribute to the event’s vibrant energy.
