The next wave of acts confirmed to appear at Portugal's Semibreve festival has been announced. Joining Andy Stott, Paul Jebanasam & Tarik Barri and Ron Morelli will be Tyondai Braxton, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Oliver Coates and Nídia Minaj. Now in its sixth edition, the event will take place this coming October at various venues in the city of Braga, including the historic Theatro Circo and the restored 18th century building Casa Rolão.

The festival will also be hosting the Edigma Semibreve Award, which “seeks to celebrate and promote the creation of works that explore the interactivity, sound and image supported through the use of digital technologies”. The €2500 award is aimed at both solo and collective projects, and the closing date for submissions is 24 July. More information can be found at the Semibreve website.

The festival will happen between 28–30 October. Early bird tickets, priced at €30, are available until the end of June.
