The 9th edition of Counterflows is in some respect a pivotal year for the festival. Over the last few editions we have grappled with the various ways of articulating what Counterflows is. Moving beyond the dogmas and hierarchies of experimental music, as well as fighting the creeping isolationist agenda, we have sought to create a space of social cohesion in an increasingly discordant world. A space where artists and audiences can meet, share and have a lot of fun in the process. Taking in new developments in traditional song, Kenyan rap, futuristic Jamaican dancehall, experimental pop, ecstatic fried electronics, radical new dance works and so much more, the Counterflows programme swirls on and off the grid, taking audiences on a dizzying and unforgettable journey.
