After another successful edition of Simple Things Festival, the organisers behind the annual one-day takeover has revealed its extended programme of events.

Simple Things EXT. is set to host a curated programme of shows, talks and art installations. Bristol Women in Music will be heading up the panel with a discussion on how to authentically tackle issues surrounding gender and equality in music. There’ll also be a following discussion on image and identity, a mix workshop and open networking session on 14 November at Watershed Bristol, from 7.30pm to 10pm (GMT).

For the programme’s second event, Simple Things EXT. will play host to exceptional performances from artists pushing the boundaries of electronic experimentation. Hot off the release of her EP Shaneera, Fatima Al Qadiri has been announced for the line-up on 23 November, and the former Crack cover star will be premiering her live audiovisual show Ja7eem, featuring visual artist Emmanuel Baird.

Coming through for support is Pan Daijing, who’ll be performing Fist Piece in the UK for the first time. Inspired by power relations and intimacy, the PAN artist has described her show as a composed live act exploring the relationship between bodies.

Support will also come from multi-instrumentalist Kayla Painter, who’ll be taking to the stage at Bristol’s IMAX for a world exclusive of her audiovisual show Infinite.

Following up is Wolfgang Voigt’s GAS project on 24 November. 2017 saw the Kompakt founder make a momentous return under the alias with the project’s first album in 17 years, entitled Narkopop. Voigt will be heading up the venue for an immersive show with bespoke visuals, avant-garde compositions and ambient, post-techno constructions.

Those who’ve been added to the programme in a previous announcement are Mogwai, Fatima Yamaha and GoGo Penguin.
