The presentation will include the international debut of the Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupé and an evening concert and DJ series featuring performances by many special guests, including Santigold.
The 17-day festival will illustrate how audio and visual art forms complement and influence each other, through various exhibitions, concerts, DJ nights, performances, and installations,. The event’s logo embodies Mike D’s artistic concept, depicting the letters A (for audio) and V (for visual) as inextricably fused.
