Since its inception, it was clearly stated that Saturnalia wasn’t to be just another musical festival. We set out to generate a kind of experience that would both set apart from reality and reverberate through it, affecting it with positive change. Each Saturnalia has been a step further into the development of a proper community. One not just willing to experiment with sound, music and art but also to invent new ways of constructing a shared experience. The core values of self-organization and inclusivity do not function as pseudo-ideological embelishments, they are the modes of interaction we want to critically infect the world.
As the world keeps on changing, we remodel our methods of resistance, deconstruction and affirmation. This year we decided to ditch yet another established formula, mixing and repurposing bits of the rave format with a polymorphic approach that allows for exploration and discovery. A continuous, 30-hour experience adrift through the space of Macao and through radically different sonic worlds. A safe space for diversity and personal expression, but also an ever-evolving place of action and encounter. One that will channel the individual sensibilities of each participant, their desires, energies and drives.
Prevendite salta-coda disponibili a Macao nel pomeriggio di Giovedì 21 e Venerdì 22.
