Digitalanalog is an audio-visual art and culture festival that has been taking place in Munich since 2002 and has its roots in alternative club culture. Rooted in Munich’s alternative and underground scene, Digitalanalog has, from its very first events, aimed to offer a varied programme far removed from the mainstream for a wide audience. The festival was always budgeted to ensure free admission to its events so that the broadest possible audience could enjoy its artistic and cultural offerings.
The Gasteig has been chosen as a venue with the specific aim of making events accessible to people who are not familiar with club culture. A key element of the festival is of course the music. The stage, which has been set up specially for the festival, plays host to all types of electronic music and increasingly also alternative bands ranging from indie rock to metal. The visual aspect, in the form of video projections by visual artists that accompany each act, is a further important element of the festival: Music acts are accompanied by video projections created mostly live by VJs and which capture and support the atmosphere created by the music.
This year, artists will once again meet at the Gasteig for Digitalanalog 2020. Playing host to the festival for many years now, the Gasteig has the necessary stages and equipment to help realise the festival’s concept. This is the venue where musicians, VJs and creatives meet and from where they stream live all over the world.
Wait a minute: stream?
In these unusual times that pray on everyone’s mind this year, the organisers do not want to expose artists, guests and staff to any risks; neither do they want to hold a »reduced« festival for a limited audience in designated zones. This would contradict the concept of making art accessible to everyone for free. The festival is therefore reinventing itself this year and breaking new ground: The performances will be analogue, with quality equipment and with television and production experts as well as presenters on board, and will be broadcast digitally. The stream will be available internationally and, of course, free of charge.
The Gasteig will take the role of broadcasting studio. The individual halls and stages will be the »stages« into which users can log in to enjoy the live concerts and performances, some of which will take place in parallel. Just as with previous festivals, they can take a peek at each stage and move around the festival area to discover new performances taking pace. Presenters will guide the audience through the programme. For detailed information on the programme (in German), visit www.digitalanalog.org
