Ben Cook (Synthetics) and I went to the VJ Festival in Erlangen, Germany, to perform with our act Instructions. It’s a new festival that I became aware of when they contacted the Swedish VJ Union about half a year ago, right in the backwaters of the Visual Berlin festival scandal. What started up as a small festival became a pretty big one with 8 VJs, 11 A/V live acts, 3 movie screenings, 7 installations and 9 DJs.

I am usually pretty quick at publishing news about the Mapping festival in Geneva. This time however, due to a heavy workload, I am extremely late but I hope the news will make some people happy. The Mapping Festival is closely tied to Garagecube, the makers of the VJ software Modul8. But you don’t have to be a Modul8 user to attend to or perform at the festival. The festival is known to be well organized and display high quality work. Read Startsladd’s report from the last festival to get an idea what they are all about.

The Volt crew came back with yet another festival at the concert hall in Uppsala. I recognized a lot of faces from last year. It feels like Volt only invites their friends to perform, but with friends like these, who could blame them?

It might not be the perfect timing to promote another German VJ festival but I just got a message from Norbert at the VJ Festival in Erlangen, close to Nürnberg in southern Germany.
