First edition of Automata hits Bucharest

The three day event takes over Control Club this November

A new festival is set to hit Bucharest this month. Running between 8–10 November, the Automata festival will combine local and international artists in a series of live concerts, freshly commissioned visual works, DJ sets, workshops and artist talks.

“Automata is a festival dedicated to electronic music and digital arts, conceived as a multidisciplinary catalyst of human-technology interaction, that puts forth not a foretelling of the future, but a better understanding of the present,” declare the organisers. The line-up features Croatian Amor, Cosmin Nicolae with Dreamrec, Borusiade, Bogman, Huerco S, Carla dal Forno, Alessandro Cortini, Patricia, Elena Colombi, Luca Lozano, Eirwud Mudwasser, Dragos Rusu, Minus & Șerb, Alexandra, and more.
