... in which many of the city's venues are taken over for a free festival. Plenty of mainstream stuffgoing on, but one event in particular being held as part of the festival, caught my eye:
"Signals is an all-day showcase of underground electronic music culture, from future bass, and techno through to ambient and sound design, taking place on the Saturday of Tramlines, 21st of July. It will be unfolding within the former industrial setting of Sheffield’s renowned Yellow Arch Studios.
The day will bring together some of the most forward-thinking contemporary electronic musicians and innovators within their fields, including:
Demdike Stare (live)
Pye Corner Audio
Special Guests TBA
and many more.
Beyond the music, features running throughout the day will include live interactive visuals, speaker events, projection mapping in the evening, as well as live experimental electronic bands and net-label stalls.
Running from 12pm through to 4am this hopes to be the finest cocktail of burgeoning electronica Tramlines has ever seen".
