The Turin avant-garde and contemporary electronic music festival stages its 21st edition next weekend – from 2-5 November.

C2C Festival has revealed the full line-up for its forthcoming event in a couple of weeks time. Italy’s largest indoor music festival, it will welcome the likes of Rachika Nayar, Model/Actriz, Space Afrika, King Krule and Flying Lotus across its two main stages. There’s also a series of collaborative performances as part of the Gang of Ducks programme including an A/V set from Upsammy and Jonathan Castro and Azu Tiwaline with Cinna Peyghamy, who worked together on Tiwaline’s latest release The Fifth Dream.

On the Stone Island Stage, which will be held at Lingotto, the Friday is set to see Caroline Polachek make her debut in the country – following a DJ set on the OGR Turin Stage – alongside a host of other Italian exclusive shows from Avalon Emerson, Evian Christ, Overmono and Two Shell. Other names confirmed to play that night include Marina Herlop, Nick León and Lucrecia Dalt.

The Saturday programme curated with Stone Island features a PAN Records showcase, celebrating 15 years of the label. For this, Bambii, Crystallmess, Honour and label founder Bill Kouligas are slated to play in addition to Italian debut and exclusive sets from Sangre Nueva and Tzusing. That same day, Lingotto will host performances from Flying Lotus, King Krule, Yves Tumor, Slauson Malone 1, Moodymann and Maral.

Elsewhere at C2C Festival, which will be taking place at the same time as Turin Contemporary Art Week, the Teatro Regio will host a series of conversations and workshops. Head to the C2C Festival website for final tickets and the full programme.
