Duma, Lee Gamble and Pan Daijing have also been confirmed for the September festival.

Rewire has announced the full line-up for its next edition, which will offer attendees an offline experience following on from May’s digital festival.

Taking place in The Hague from 10-12 September – with an additional day of programming on 18 September – Rewire 2021 offline edition has been described as “a reintroduction to Rewire’s usual format” before the event returns in its full form next April. It’s set to include a small number of in-person gigs and presentations that’ll take place in public and outdoor spaces, plus venues like Paard, Korzo and Koninklijke Schouwburg.

The full event line-up features a selection of new names, rescheduled artists from Rewire 2020 and familiar faces who took part in May’s online edition. Artists like Loraine James, Bbymutha, Lorenzo Senni, Nazar and Duma have been confirmed, alongside Pan Dajing, Lyra Pramuk, Sarah Davachi, Laurie Spiegel and Mark Fell. Lee Gamble has also been announced.

As part of the weekend scheduling, Rewire is teaming up with artist-run platform iii on a project entitled Proximity Music. Together, they will present a tour of installations across The Hague. Other installations and works will be scattered across the city, created by a fusion of local and international artists. Elsewhere, Rewire is collaborating with festival Dag in de Branding to present the closing event, which takes place on 18 September. Timoteo Carbone, Federico Zurani, Mertiç Artaç and Maria W Horn are among those performing and presenting works on the festival’s final day.

Rewire 2021 offline edition takes place 10-12 September, plus 18 September. The first wave of weekend passes go on sale this Saturday (3 July). Tickets for Rewire x Dag in de Branding on 18 September are already on sale. Find out more on Rewire’s website.
