|zaal:||Kleine Zaal + Grote Zaal + Spiegelzaal + Hangop|
Elektronische muziek maakt een bijzonder deel uit van de muziek. Deze tak van het muziekleven heeft niet alleen een rol van belang gespeeld in de ontwikkeling van de klassiek-hedendaagse muziek, maar óók in de ontwikkeling van de popmuziek de afgelopen zestig jaren. En het is precies dit raakvlak tussen die twee delen van het muzikale veld waar het FAQ Festival zich op richt.
Met op zaterdag:

Unit Moebius Anonymous is the act risen from the legendary techno band Unit Moebius, which is the keystone of the notorious Acid Planet days. Their influences are still to be heard in contemporary dance music and some of the greatest such as Aphex Twin claimed to be a fan!
After a hiatus of almost ten years a rebirth took place in 2007, when the key player of the band, Jan Duivenvoorden, started producing and playing live again.
It’s an absolute must for any techno fan to have witnessed a live performance by Unit Moebius Anonymous. His industrial yet spiritual live sets are from another planet.
Techno will never sound the same again!
Ross from friends
Taking lofi building blocks full of crackle and character and running them through his sampler Ross From Friends forms his own style of rough edged Techno that hits hard whilst carrying a distinctive sense of soul. From early experimental music to hip-hop sampling - even 80s Eurobeat and Hi-NRG helps to make up the comprehensive sound palette that Ross has the liberty of drawing from.
Tetris meets Pop. Adi Gelbart, mad Professor and brilliant scientist together in one person, combines the signals of his absurd analog-monster equipment to create a bi-polar thunderstorm shower of sounds. He reveals his experimental joy through juxtaposing and combining New Wave, BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Prog Rock, and Musique Concrète sending the listener repeatedly to the brink of a musical psychosis.
Spatial is a collective existing of musicians, promoters, artists and designers based in ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the southern part of the Netherlands, focusing on underground electronic music.
On Saturday April 8th. Spatial Collective will promote a special afterparty in collaboration with FAQ Festival at Willem Twee Poppodium.
