Dream Music 12 HOUR DRONE in Malmö, Sweden
Following successful DRONE satellite events in Manchester, UK and Winnipeg, CA, 24-HOUR DRONE: Experiments in Sound and Music continues its international journey on Friday, October 14, as the DRONE dream comes to Sweden. Malmö Live’s Dream Music is a twelve-hour concert with performances from some of the best contemporary practitioners of the genre, including Julianna Barwick, Stephen O’Malley, Julia Kent, Noveller and more.

Now one of the most beloved annual programs in Basilica Hudson’s calendar, 24-HOUR DRONE embodies Basilica Hudson at its most experimental and experiential, and pushes the boundaries of what a communal, conceptual experience can be. An immersive event and all-encompassing experience, 24-HOUR DRONE is a roving, international series presented by Basilica Hudson and Le Guess Who?, featuring musicians and sound artists experimenting within the spectrum of drone. The first 24-HOUR DRONE was held in 2014 at the Le Guess Who? festival in Utrecht, Netherlands, before arriving stateside the following April, where it opened Basilica Hudson’s 2015 season with Prurient, SUUNS, Arone Dyer, Greg Fox, Randy Gibson and more.

Later this season, the DRONE dream will also return to where it all started, with a 12 HOUR DRONE at 2017’s Le Guess Who? featuring frequent Basilica Hudson DRONE participants Jessica Moss, Ben Shemie, Big|Brave and Lea Bertucci among its lineup.

Basilica Hudson’s weekend of music and art also makes an appearance at 2017’s Le Guess Who, with a Basilica SoundScape-curated stage which will include performances by Basilica SoundScape alumni Jenny Hval, Protomartyr, Meredith Graves and more. Learn more.

We are honored and excited to spread the singular big factory dreams of the little City of Hudson across the globe.
