Terraforma announces full line up including DJ Stingray and Laurie Anderson

This year also features a new site-specific stage

DJ sets from duo Marco Shuttle & Efdemin, DJ Stingray and Paquita Gordon plus Søte presenting his recent Diagonal release Parallel Persia and a performance from Lauren Anderson are a sample of what's in store at the 2019 edition of Terraforma festival.

Taking place on the grounds of Villa Arconti in Milan, the ‘sustainable’ event will this year present a new site-specific stage in collaboration with Belgian festival Meakusma. Kiosque à Musique was built with natural materials and designed to amplify sounds from its surrounding area. The new structure will host a residency from Francesco Cavaliere who will present a series of lectures titled C-Alphabetic Falls. It will also host authors and artists presenting work that focuses on gestures, words and language.

Also on the line-up are Marylou, Walter Prati & Ricciarda Belgiojoso, Izabel, Monolake, Vladimir Ivkovic, Renick Bell, Sir Richard Bishop, STILL, Ramzi, Donato Dozzy, RP Boo, Kelman Duran, Buttechno, Stargate (Lorenzo Senni), Juliana Huxtable, Mica Levi, Caterina Barbieri, Daniel Higgs and Bambounou.

Additionally, neurobiologist Stefano Mancuso will be hosting talks, and festival goers also have the chance to take a guided tour of the grand Villa Arconati.

Terraforma will take place between 5–7 July. Tickets are on sale now.
