VROOOM FEST (#20)

The 20th VROOOM event is a jam-packed mini-festival presenting a group of diverse artists that defy genre in music, performance & video. Apocalypse Lauw is a wild and wanton tour de force of Icelandic, American and German artists and musicians staging an amalgam of improvised poetry, noise music and video. Junko & Michel Henritzi will either totally transfix people or have them stagger to the emergency exit; a once-in-a-lifetime experience regardless. The trio Yassin / Sehnaoui / Prins will play unruly live improv filtering through their Lebanese and Dutch practices.
