Les Siestes in Leipzig
First edition for the SeaNaps festival, our small brother from Germany :) Leipzig, 8-10 September 2017.
SeaNaps is a 3 days festival, which will take place in different locations of Leipzig, the 8th, 9th and 10th of September. The main artistic medium is music, but SeaNaps aims at proposing a transdisciplinary approach and, to do so, is working with several local associations and festivals of visual arts, performance and technologies.
It was born from the will of two associations, one French (Rotation, in Toulouse) and one German (HABeaTUS, Leipzig), to co-curate and organize an event reflecting what each country’s alternative scene had best to offer.
This year, the main scene of the festival will be set in the Grassi Museum, where 10 concerts will take place, co-curated by SeaNaps and Les Siestes Electroniques.
The invited artists are (so far): Oko Ebombo, Rabih Beaini, Black Zone Myth Chant, Raymonde, Mohammad Reza Mortavi, Welten ...
Two conferences will also surround the festival, and will gather European actors concerned by the creation of a new economical model for music festivals. Indeed, SeaNaps will also be the occasion for a new initiative: the implementation of Blockhain Technology in its transaction system !
