Synch Festival Announces Line-up

Detroit and Greece will meet this summer, when Theo Parrish, Marcellus Pittman, and Rick Wilhite hop the Atlantic to open this year's Synch Festival in Athens.

The three-day event is now readying its sixth installment, to take place June 12 - 14, and in addition to the aforementioned Detroit legends, the bill also includes Ed Banger's Mr. Oizo, downtempo maters Jazzanova, Hot Chip's Joe Goddard, Tortoise, Fujiya & Miyagi, and a host of others. Sonar and MUTEK may be garnering a little more attention from the press these days, but Synch is threatening to snatch the trophy for this summer's stellar line-up (in full below).

Music is the main offering here, but Synch also features its Moving Image section, an international, non-competitive film festival that promotes work from international audio-visual artists.
