The festival returns from 22-26 February.

Dweller, the New York festival founded by Frankie Decaiza Hutchinson in 2019 to celebrate Black electronic artists and musicians, will present its fourth edition later this month. This year, the event will take place over four days across six different New York venues, including Nowadays, Paragon and Bossa Nova Civic Club, with a line-up that spotlights both emerging artists and long-established figures. This includes Jeff Mills – who recently featured in our series The Click – who will be live scoring a screening of Metropolis at Anthology Film Archives and will also take part in a talk. Other acts include Fred P, Slauson Malone 1, Klein and Loraine James.

The bill also features the likes of Terrence Dixon, OK Williams, Contour, Space Afrika and Goth Jafar. Other acts confirmed include LSDXOXO (who is set to make his US live performance debut), FAUZIA, Bambii and AceMo – all of whom produced on Kelela’s hotly anticipated and recently released second album, Raven. Dweller Festival 2023 will also feature live performances from Detroit harpist Ahya Simone and tap dancer Justin Allen, plus a live coding exhibition by Alsoknownasrox.
