The Dutch festival has added 40 artists to its 2021 line-up. 

Rewire has announced the second wave of artists for its forthcoming digital edition. Kate NV, Bby Eco and Jonny Nash are among the new confirmed names. Elsewhere, artists such as Tzusing (pictured), Badsista, Hyph11E, Siete Catorce, BFTT and Bashar Suleiman will perform at Rewire as part of a collaboration with virtual platform Club Qu, otherwise known as Club Quarantäne.

As outlined earlier this year, Rewire will be welcoming a series of remote residencies into its online programme. Brazilian singer Elza Soares will be teaming with American trumpeter Jaimie Branch as part of this residency project. Meanwhile, sound artist KMRU will be joining forces with filmmaker Donna Verheijden for a specially commissioned audiovisual collaboration. The newly-announced artists will join names such as Lee Gamble, Smerz, Duma and Jesse Kanda at the festival next month. 

Rewire has also confirmed three new additions to its film programme. First up, there’s Flight of the Giant Swan from director Joe Hatt. It’s been described as “a candid audiovisual testament to the raw electronic punk energy of Giant Swan, aka Robin Stewart and Harry Wright, as they embark on a UK tour in support of their self-titled debut album.” There’s also a short film from artist John Bence that accompanies his 2020 LP Love, as well as a film from Indonesian artist and filmmaker Riar Rizaldi entitled Tellurian Drama.

Rewire takes place on 6-9 May 2021. Head to the festival’s website for more information. Read our Club Qu feature here.
