- The first ten names have been announced for the Bologna event, which returns with its eighth edition in October.
Bologna's roBOt Festival has revealed the first wave of acts playing in 2015.
The festival's eighth edition will take place from October 7th through 10th at various venues across the northern Italian city, with "XLR8" this year's chosen theme. The Palazzo Re Enzo and BolognaFiere will once again host the bulk of the action, including live sets from UK experimentalists Squarepusher, Clark and Powell. They'll be joined by Nina Kraviz, Ben UFO and Trentemøller, who has been booked for a rare DJ set. RBMA have also confirmed their involvement, working with the festival to bring Evian Christ, Sherwood & Pinch, Nathan Fake (who will all play live) and Levon Vincent to Bologna. More names will be announced as the summer unfolds.
