Ayhan Aydin is a meal ecologist and for NORBERGFESTIVAL 2017 he has developed a healthy and exciting food concept. In his own word it's a bit like jazz: Training, improvisation and curiosity are important factors when arranging a track as well as a meal. The food at this year's Norbergfestival has layers on layers with flavors and textures to create a delightful and greasy plate. The food is primarily plant based and gluten-free with some alternatives for the omnivores. We serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night foods. The produce includes everything from Swedish vegetables and legumes that was supposed to thrown away to spices picked in the wild. We are caring about the environment and keeping it green!
Forget about noise, forget about drone, forget about ambient, IDM and glitch. Techno, electronica and electro are all nonsense genres of the past. Why? Because now MANDIBLE is here. You've never heard of mandible? Woot!?! Eeerhm, maybe you've heard of such artists as Kara-Lis Coverdale, Pharmakon, Jesse Osborne-Lanthier or SKY H1? Yeah, thought so. They are some of the biggest players on the mandible scene! Our dear friend and long time collaborator Olle Holmberg (aka Moon Wheel) made us aware about the latest genre buzz word. He is btw burning bright on the star-spangled mandible night sky. At Every Noise At Once, which is an ongoing attempt at an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 1535 genres by Spotify (take a breath) you can acquaint yourself with this wonderful genres of genres that puts all other genres to shame. So, in conclusion. If you've ever wondered about what kind of festival NORBERGFESTIVAL is, well now you know. IT IS JUST ABOUT THE MOST MANDIBLE FESTIVAL IN THE WORLD! We've probably booked half of the jaw-dropping (hint hint) mandible scene already. So come to NORBERGFESTIVAL 2017. It's mandible. #keepitmandible
10 DAYS LEFT! Last year was maybe the best festival in our history. Our gut feeling tells us this year is going to be even more off the rails. The program is set and what we got lined up for you is nothing but amazing! BUY YOUR FESTIVAL PASS TODAY! We love you! Sincerely, Norberg Crew Music: Amnesia Scanner Video: Dalin Waldo / Gustav Hoder
Austria-born but Barcelona-based DJ, animator and producer Zora Jones debuted with 100 Ladies in 2015, a profoundly unique seven-song offering that elicits shattered glass nested in choral arrangements. Her music is genre-defying but often charting the 160 BPM segment of club rhythms.
Belgian tape and synth experimentalist Mathieu Serruys works with the (dis)advantages of reel-to-reel tape machines and analog synthesizers, his compositions slowly progressing as loops of brittle melodies crumble into eroded textures. Searching for the sensitivity hidden in analog tape, Serruys creates a sound spectrum where atmospheres range from fierce monumentality to delicate emotions.
Under the interdisciplinary, persona-defying digital profile of EVOL, Roc Jiménez de Cisneros and Stephen Sharp dissect and deform all sort of techno artefacts, stretching them to their very breaking point, where mental dissociation meets fun!
Zuli is Ahmed El Ghazoly — a multi-instrumentalist, producer and sound artist from Cairo, Egypt and co-founder of VENT, a music-space-turned-club-night in Cairo with a sister night and record label based in London. As a key player in the KiK (Kairo is Koming) group and prominent figure in Egypt’s independent music scene for near a decade, his production credits span from post-punk and shoegaze to hip hop and techno.
These two millenials first met at a seedy rave on the outskirts of Stockholm back in 2012 where they connected through their mutual love for VGM-composer Yasuhisa Watanabe. Following their first encounter, they started jamming out on the Roland E-15 Intelligent Synthesizer. Jams evolved into full-fledged songs and the duos separate skillsets proved to be a match made in heaven.
In a post-genre climate, Sordez produces a distinct variation on dubstep and drum & bass, and as a DJ enjoys various takes on these genres—under one resounding constant: bass.
