DIRECCIÓN: Diferentes Espacios LOCALIDAD: Eupen
Del 6 al 8 de septiembre de 2019.
From September 6 to 8, the Meakusma Festival returns and we are delighted to present you with a first wave of confirmed artists and performers.
2019 marks the fourth edition of the Festival, as always focusing on experimental and club music alike, boasting an intimate atmosphere and a carefully curated lineup. Various venues across the Belgian city of Eupen will for that one weekend be host to the festival, proof of the fact that the Meakusma Festival has become part of the city's DNA.
At the heart of the festival stands the Alter Schlachthof venue with its comfortable rooms and garden. The IKOB museum will again be host to several performances during two days of the festival. Other locations are the art gallery Vorn Und Oben, the Gülcher street and the Loten Park with an installation by the Musica organization from Neerpelt focused on a participation-based experience of sound and music and a wooden installation developed in collaboration with Terraforma from Milan intent on enhancing the sounds of the installation's environment.
2017 marked a very gratifying first collaboration with the Brussels-based venue and record label Les Ateliers Claus. They will be back co-curating a selection of artists whose performances will be spread out over the three days of the festival. One example here is the very first collaborative concert by composer, guitarist and lecturer from New Zealand Roy Montgomery together with American musician, artist and producer Liz Harris/Grouper. Montgomery stands as one of New Zealand's most vital underground artists, his signature sound revolving around atmosphere and the cinematic, complexly layered with echoing and droning guitar phrases. Grouper's ethereal sound touches upon folk, contemporary classical music, renaissance music, avant-pop and early music.
