Live Electronic Music festival KONTAKTOR will take place in Riga, Latvia

On June 1 2018, for the first time an international live electronic music festival Kontaktor will be held in Riga, Latvia. The program of the event aims to recoil from the currently common and to accentuate mutating and ever evolving forms of live only techno, industrial, noise & experimental music. Kontaktor will take place in Riga Electric Machine Building Works (RER) located in Von Trompovska Quarter which has not been open to general public since its opening in 1888 continuing to hold its history discreetly by itself.

Kontaktor is organised by modular synthesizer manufacturers Erica Synths who aim to accentuate the power of the live performance aspect in the currently DJ saturated electronic music scene.

RER - known to be one of the largest industrial districts in Riga will open its doors inviting to experience more than 20 carefully curated live acts on two stages in one of the most extraordinary yet unrevealed spaces in Riga. The venue of the festival is going to be filled with thrilling light installations and video mapping, the absolute and invariable axiom for the night being loud & intense journey of live electronic sound in proper environment. The aim is to create a novel and distinctive platform to offer an exceptional experience through musically diverse live acts only.
