Artists and musicians are performing music from a range of genres including acoustic, ambient, electronic, experimental, industrial, punk and techno, and the programme will showcase talent from London’s vibrant underground music scene, as well as exclusive contributions artists and musicians from Germany, UK and the US.

Enter the Dragon is a platform where Zhang Ding further explores his longstanding interest in "the stimulating and chemical interaction between sound, stage and the immediate emotional response of the audience."

CASUAL SECT formed in early 2015 when Thom T Bleasdale (Pine Barrens), Kevin Morpurgo (Dethscalator) and Robbie Judkins (Left Hand Cuts Off The Right) convened in London and joined forces with vocalist Maggie Muldoon (aka Bridget Jonestown). Through a shared love of noise, anti-establishment ideals, the punk band CASUAL SECT was born. Visit the CASUAL SECT webpage.

Chrononautz (Dom Clare and Leon Carey) have been playing music together since 2000 and have played under the name Chrononautz since splitting from another band in 2010.  Their music fuses improvisational chaos, serious technical chops and ability to create very strange sounds places them at the forefront of the techno music scene. They are currently work on their upcoming record Noments. Visit the Chrononautz SoundCloud page.
