Holly Herndon And Jam City To Headline A “Festival Of Radical Imagination”

The forward-thinking electronic musicians will lead a line-up of thinkers and artists next week in Brighton, UK.

August 27, 2015

British seaside town Brighton used to play host to an annual conference on contemporary culture and ideas called Improving Reality; this year, the series has been revived as a two-day festival called The Long Progress Bar, and it's looking more enticing than ever.

The event, billed as a "festival of radical imagination," takes place over September 3 and 4, and will feature live music performances alongside talks, screenings and workshops. Experimental electronic artists Holly Herndon and Jam City lead the line-up, along with Berlin-based systematic producer TCF; future-facing design agency Metahaven; sound artist Mat Dryhurst, and theorist Benedict Singleton (whose work inspired the title of Herndon's last album, Platform).
