This past weekend was Prague’s annual Lunchmeat Festival at Bio Oko and Meetfactory. The two day festival consisted of a number of different DJs spinning everything from glitch, dubstep, ambient, experimental, and more. It doesn’t stop there–the music was also accompanied by crazy visuals from various artists, some by the DJs themselves.
Incite/, a German electronic, audio-visual duo provided a memorable set with pulsating, intense, experimental beats that timed so well with the black and white imagery projected over them. Their performance embodied the festival’s intent of mixing sound with sight.
The normally bare and minimal Meetfactory featured installations hanging from the ceiling and also opened up a second stage called “A Very Foreign Affairs Dubstep Stage.” This stage showcased talented and well-known DJs such as Author–Ruckspin and Jack Sparrow–and Kode 9. The stage was located in a tiny, almost claustrophobic, dark room reminiscent of vibes found at venues like Plastic People in London.
Author played a slower, melodic dubstep set, staying true to the underground dubstep atmosphere of the tiny space. Kode 9′s set was much more upbeat and featured a wider range of music styles that certainly kept the audience grooving. He mixed in random songs such as a remix of Lil Wayne’s “A Millie,” which only added to the excitement and entertainment of seeing Kode 9 live.
The two days were jammed pack with a myriad of audio-visual sensation that took over Prague all throughout the town.
