London Electronic Arts Festival (LEAF) is returning in 2015 at Tobacco Dock, a 19th Century warehouse turned arts venue in the city.
More than just an electronic music festival, LEAF also features installations, masterclasses, screenings, and conversations alongside the expected parties.
Next year's edition will unfold on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th March, and sees Nile Rodgers, DJ Harvey, Black Butter Records, and RAM Records announced as the first speakers as part of their LEAF Conversations series. Meanwhile, Modeselektor will headline Friday night's party procedures, with DJ Harvey, Luciano, Tale Of Us, Pan-Pot, and Anja Schneider taking the Saturday's main event.
Rodgers, apparently, won't have a moderator for his talk – he'll just babble on unprompted for ages, and given the sheer amount of stuff that must've happened in his life, we're totally fine with that. DJ Harvey will speak to festival co-founder Rob Da Bank – and again, with Harvey's many tall tales, it's sure to be a very enlightening conversation.
Further talks and masterclasses will come from Point Blank music school, the East London Academy of Music, and B-Traits. More names are set to be announced in the future.
