The Vancouver experimental/electronic/contemporary art/other-words-to-describe-weird-music New Forms Festival has announced its initial lineup of confirmed artists, and it’s star-studded (well, relatively). Oneohtrix Point Never, Hieroglyphic Being, and copeland are among this year’s performers.

The festival will take place September 18-21 at Science World, a not-for-profit organization that hosts exhibitions, offers summer camp programs for youngsters, and runs a robotics club. Artists playing New Forms are encouraged to conduct science experiments while playing — think Daniel Lopatin making a baking soda/vinegar volcano or Morton Subotnick messing around with beakers and test tubes (okay, I made that part up).

Other artists confirmed to play include DJ Earl, Brenna Murphy, Cloudface, Helena Hauff, Scratcha DVA, Visionist, and 1080p peeps like Lndrcroy and Young Braised. The full initial lineup can be viewed here. Early bird tickets are available now for $85 a pop.
