Hyperlocal festival to take place in London and Buenos Aires

The joint location festival will run on 17 September at Cafe Oto, and on 25 November at Xirgu Espacio Untref, Atom Sound Art Space and Cuarto Apostol

Hyperlocal's 2017 edition will be split between Dalston in London’s East End and
San Telmo in Buenos Aires. It kicks off with performances on 16 September at Cafe Oto and its project space, and the evening will end with an afterparty at a venue yet to be confirmed. The event will then transfer across the Atlantic on 25 November to three venues in Buenos Aires: Xirgu Espacio Untref, Atom Sound Art Space and Cuarto Apostol.

“One headspace for +12 hours conducted in two cities. It is a lasting connection of
opposite hemispheres from local Argentine and South American landcapes
to the UK/EU and beyond, fighting against the impracticality of distance and resources to expose, extend and share,” states the festival.

Artists lined up for London include online performances from Albobabez and Yearning Kru, and live ones from The Bomber Jackers, DJ Save The NHS, Farai, Lolina and others. The Buenos Aires bill includes more online performances from Albobabez and Yearning Kru, plus Aylu, DJ Bli Bli, Ines Navarro, Nicolas Freeman, DJ Bruta, Vluba, Yoto, with more tbc.
