Event Details

Blurring electronica, jazz and classical into a completely new and captivating experience, the Dots+Loops Companions Festival is a musical experience like no other! Featuring world-renowned cellist Ashley Bathgate presenting the Australian premiere of Bach Unwound, the festival also presents brand new music from Big Dead, immersive virtuosity from Kupka's Piano, and Rosa Guitar Trio premiering two new pieces written just for the festival by Chris Perren and Brechtje. Held in the chilled out warehouse at Cupo in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley, there's heaps of comfy spaces to hang out with friends, and a bar open all night. DJs Airport and Luke Cuerel will keep each night alive with a range of music following on from the rest of each program, while audience, performers and composers alike hang out in the in-venue afterparty.
