Lucrecia Dalt, Mick Harris and more will play Vienna's Unsafe+Sounds festival next month

The 2018 edition of Unsafe+Sounds festival has just announced its full line-up, inviting the likes of Aja Ireland, Mick Harris (formerly of Napalm Death) and Lucrecia Dalt to venues around Vienna this October.

Entering its fifth year, Unsafe+Sounds ("unsafe and sounds") aims to gather key figures from the experimental music scene in the Austrian capital, programming in eight nights of experimental electronics, free improvisation, and fringe techno around the city.

Other acts include Polish audiovisual duo WIDT presenting a new collaboration with legendary German producer Christoph de Babalon, Linda Sharrock’s modern freeform group In the Abissity of the Grounds, noisy Aussie glass-smasher Lucas Abela (aka Justice Yeldham), American minimalist Kali Malone, plus a whole host of adventurous music from the local scene including Pita (aka Peter Rehberg of KTL and Editions Mego).

"Under the banner of Brutal Times, we gather workers from the musical frontiers to find some medication for this pathological time," says the festival. "We believe these are to be found in the poetics of catharsis and physical affection; in neurotic, transgressive, psychoacoustic, and obscure approaches."

This year’s festival takes place at various locations in Vienna, between the 2nd and 13th October 2018. Ticket information can be found here.
