We Are Robots

A new festival launches in London next week that seeks to explore the future of music through a programme of daytime discussions and evening gigs. Called We Are Robots, the event includes “eclectic live performances, label collaborations, interactive workshops and never-seen-before sound installations”, among various other things.

The festival centres on East London’s Truman Brewery and includes events in Boiler House, 93 Feet East and Rough Trade East. Line-up wise, the nighttime programme includes the likes of Mt Wolf, Malka, The Penelopes, Nsdos, Warm Digits and ManarĂ©.

Daytime events will include sessions for students on Friday 3 Nov, and a series of panel discussions the previous day, Thursday 2 Nov. That will include a conversation hosted by CMU Insights looking at how new technologies are reinventing the live experience, from finding gigs and buying tickets, to what happens on stage, to how the show is seen and shared online. Full details of the panel will be announced shortly.

Confirming CMU’s involvement, We Are Robots co-founder Emma Joyce said: “Across our programme of daytime conversations and nighttime gigs, We Are Robots is all about exploring the future of music, and that includes discussing how technology is changing the way we make, share and consume the music we love. It’s great to team up with CMU Insights on one of our daytime discussions. Looking at how the live music experience is evolving, this session will be a great way to connect between our daytime programme of panels and evening line-up of great gigs”.
