The festival celebrating technology and music returns to London next month.

Last year Convergence launched itself as a festival in London exploring visual artists and musicians that utilise technology in innovative ways. The multi-venue event proved such a success that it’s back for a second round in 2015, with a line up that’s just as varied as last year.

Artists including Pantha Du Prince, Erased Tapes duo Kiasmos, synth-pop icon Gary Numan, Tricky, Portico, Clark, Darkstar and Vessels will provide expansive electronic sounds alongside with the moodier beats of Andy Stott, ZombyUntold, Gazelle TwinPaula Temple and Shackleton across multiple events from March 12-21.

Expanding this year into venues including the Royal Festival Hall and Kachette, the festival has also programmed an array of artist talks featuring Matthew Herbert and Funkadelic legend George Clinton. The festival will also be launching Convergence Sessions, described as “a three-day series of discussions, installations and workshops focusing on the points where music, art, and technology intersect.”

The full line-up and ticket details can be found at the Convergence website. You can also download a free 19-track compilation from Convergence featuring tracks from artists appearing at the festival, including Andy Stott, Tricky, Clark and Kiasmos. To grab that, just sign up to the festival’s mailing list.
