Test Dept will host a three-day London-based festival next month

Assembly of Disturbance is a three-day London-based festival put together by industrialists Test Dept which will bring together a number of acts of various disciplines.

The festival aims to give "voice to the manifest dissonance, the emergent anger and resultant resistance in Britain in the year 2017," and has been curated by Test Dept, Aaron James and David Altweger. "Assembly of Disturbance invites you to join an assemblage of artists to consider the prevalent and pressing intersection of art and activism, challenging and disrupting the current state of affairs in Britain, and beyond," reads a press text accompanying the festival's announcement.

The festival will take place at Shoreditch's Red Gallery and Kamio from October 5-7 and features performances by Puce Mary, Kris Canavan and Hannah Sawtell, as well as DJ sets by Trevor Jackson and Golden Pudel resident Nina.

There will also be work from renowned artist Malcolm Poynter, talks from philosopher Timothy Morton and work from Mike Pearson. Test Dept will also play material from their upcoming album, Disturbance, live for the first time.
