Repeat for city electro fest.
In March 2017 the second Seventh Wave Festival of Electronic Music takes place across four days and across three venues in Birmingham.
The stellar live line-up includes members of one of the most influential early industrial acts Test Dept., revered Krautrock and electronica collective Gnod, Tubeway Army member Chris Payne (who co-wrote Fade to Grey by Visage), DJ Rusty Egan of Visage fame (put simply, without Rusty Egan there would be no Steve Strange) and Richard Barbieri, currently of Porcupine Tree but he cut his teeth as the highly respected synth player for new wave pioneers Japan in the 1980’s.
One of the highlights of the festival will be an electronic music conference with key note speeches from Martyn Ware (Heaven 17), Chris Payne (who formed Dramatis with other members of Gary Numan’s Tubeway Army in the early 1980’s), Richard Barbier (Japan/Porcupine Tree but also a pivotal member of Rain Tree Crow) and
DJ Rusty Egan, whose Blitz Club started the New Romantic movement.
