24. – 27. March 2016

Electron opens its thirteenth edition with even more impertinence than usual. In this period of cultural precariousness, which has seen many festivals forced out of business, Electron’s endurance and tenacity is an impertinence in itself. In Geneva’s adverse situation, imposed by the latest decisions of the City Council on budget cuts that hit Electron with full force, this audacity takes on the appearance of a test of strength.

It is precisely this impertinence that Electron wants to nurture, against all odds, and even more so this year, not only in its graphic line, warding off the evil spell of an audacious “bad edition”, crowned with a fitting 13, under the inquisitive gaze of a black cat, but also in its adventurous and uncompromising, multi-disciplinary and multi-stylistic programming.

Nik Nowak will perform with his Soundtank at PLAIN DE PLAINPALAIS

Friday 25 march: 16h15 – 17h15

Saturday 26 march: 18h00 – 19h00
