The first Meakusma festival kicks off next month

Meakusma, the Belgium record label behind artists such as [sic!], Monochord and Ryo Murakaml, is set to host its first ever three day festival this September. Happening at Alter Schlachthof in Eupen, it promises a programme of music, “installations and lectures, fusing and confusing day and night, [and] acknowledging the lasting relevance and fierce sense of experimentation still running through underground electronic and experimental music today”.

Spread over five stages, the festival line-up features Roger Robinson & Disrupt, Babyfather, Mark Ernestus & Mark Ainley, Thomas Brinkmann, Ben UFO, rRoxymore, MM/KM, Mike Cooper, Eartheater, Karen Gwyer, Izabel Caligiore, and more.

Meakusma takes place between 23–25 September.
