Gazelle Twin, Plaid and more team up to fight homelessness for the fifteenth anniversary of AUDIOSCOPE festival
Electronica legends Plaid headline this year’s Audioscope festival in Oxford, topping an outstanding lineup of the best underground and alternative artists, all raising money for homelessness charity Shelter.
Also taking the stage alongside the Warp Records stalwarts will be synth shaman Gazelle Twin, performing this intimate show just days before her headline date at the Barbican.
At the noisier end of the lineup, there’s a rare show from the UK’s loudest band Part Chimp, prog-kraut veterans Guapo, the hypnotic grooves of Kogumaza and necro-psych Londoners Taman Shud.
Taking the volume down a notch, Thrill Jockey’s latest signing Dave Heumann will be performing as part of his debut European solo tour with members of Trembling Bells and his former band Arbouretum, while Manchester-based ambient innovators Marconi Union will take the audience on a unique journey with a one-off improvised set.
The full lineup is:
Plaid / Gazelle Twin / Part Chimp / Dave Heumann (Arbouretum) / Guapo / Marconi Union / Kogumaza / Taman Shud / Demian Castellanos (The Oscillation) / Kone
The festival, which takes place on Saturday 21 November at The Bullingdon in Oxford, reaches the landmark of its fifteenth anniversary this year. Since 2001, more than 200 artists from across the UK and beyond have supported Audioscope, raising almost £29,000 for the charity.
Audioscope15 takes place at The Bullingdon, Cowley Road, Oxford on 21 November 2015. Tickets are available now for £15 in advance from www.wegottickets.com/audioscope
