Borderline Festival of Onassis Stegi returns
Through DJ sets and live performances centered around an elaborate and bold curatorial concept, Borderline Festival explores new sounds and technologies, deconstructs the commonly known music genres and how pop music constantly reinvents itself, and re-approaches the future of the experimental electronic music scene.
Noise, acceleration, and multiplicity. Borderline 2023 is an exploration of the ways that avant-garde music and its techniques (loops, samples, distorted vocals) have bled into mainstream music. A new generation of artists has access to cheaper hardware and software and all the world's music at their fingertips thanks to the internet. Lines between genres crumble, new sounds and technologies emerge. Pop is dead and more alive than ever as it absorbs and metabolizes these changes.
In Borderline 2023, young Greek creators, members of the vibrant local community, meet with rising international artists at three unexpected spots all over the city, creating a new soundtrack for Athens: a Mediterranean mosaic reflecting the constantly shifting musical landscape, bringing the so-called periphery back to the center of cultural production.From the open-to-all events at the Municipal Market of Kypseli to the late-night concerts at Gagarin 205 and the live performances at the Exhibition Hall -1 of Onassis Stegi. The longest-running festival of Stegi returns once again to Athens, further pursuing the exploration of the boundary lines between arts, cultures, and traditions.
Borderline 2023 is curated by Movement Radio, Onassis Stegi's web radio.
