OPEN BETA, Los Angeles, CA
21 years and over
In collaboration with creative director and visual artist Taran Allen, the OPEN BETA space will completely transform on multiple nights during the Red Bull Music Academy Festival Los Angeles, overhauling the space each time to reflect the unique energies of that evening’s artists. This opening night – programmed together with Los Angeles label Outside Insight head Julian Schoen – gathers live performers who present their unclassifiable, experimental work with an uncommon intensity, blurring the lines between performer and witness, stage and crowd. The full lineup includes SADAF (from Outside Insight), the disorienting electronics of Amnesia Scanner, LA’s elusive duo Odwalla 1221, PAN associate Yves Tumor, psychedelic songwriter Eartheater, minimalist punk Sneaks and the ferocious dancehall of Barcelona’s Bad Gyal. Whether working with found sound, reggaeton, noise or New Age, they all offer challenging and thrilling perspectives on what live music can be in 2017.
