Electronic music festival comes to Birmingham

Big names set to kickstart city music event.

In November 2016 the inaugural Seventh Wave Festival of Electronic Music takes place across four days and at three venues

The stellar line-up includes highly influential ambient industrialists :zoviet*france:, revered Kraut-rock and electronica collective Gnod, ex-Kraftwerk member Wolfgang Flur (responsible for inventing the group’s electric drums used throughout the 1970s), 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 1980s).

One of the highlights of the festival will be an all-day conference with key note speeches from Wolfgang Flur (Ex-Kraftwerk), Andy McCluskey (of multi-million selling synth pop exponents OMD) and DJ Rusty Egan (whose Blitz Club started the New Romantic movement).
