Splice Festival is a new audio visual performing arts festival for London.
Splice Festival forms the UK branch of Creative Europe’s AV Node Network, a large scale project which partners 13 art and technology festivals across some of Europe’s biggest cities to promote and support the work of emerging audio visual artists.
At its core the festival’s programme will explore the overlapping fields of audio visual art and culture through a collection of live performances and projects including live cinema, AV remixing and VJing alongside other performative work that includes digital theatre, projection mapping, visual music, generative software, creative coding, experimental music and work that uses old and new technology in engaging ways.
Our educational programme features a range of workshops, talks and panel discussions.
