A-Synth Festival is an electronic and experimental music festival held in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Dedicated to experimental sounds, the festival features live music, DJ sets, visual art, and film, as well as an annual showcase from a record label or collective.
This year, the focus is on the independent British label Ghost Box Records, whose unique brand of artistic, philosophical, ideological and sonic elements have generated an incredibly unique and intriguing aesthetic.
In addition to this label, there will be other musicians and artists from across the world displaying their experimental talents across the two days in St. Gallen's Palace and Grabenhalle music venues.
Palace and Grabenhalle are two music venues (approximately 100m apart) in St Gallen; a city in the very north-east of Switzerland. Friday's programme will take place in Palace, whilst Saturday will be in Grabenhalle.
