“The change gives Elevate new perspectives and allows for a better coordination with other events,” the promoters write. The festival’s program offers electronic music, as well as contemporary discourse.

Acts confirmed to play the 2017 edition include Juan AtkinsMumdanceLogos, Paranoid London and Stephen O’Malley.

The discourse will be centered on big data, quantification and algorithms, asking the question of who actually makes decisions in the 21st century.
