Washington, DC FORWARD Festival, a 5 day celebration of electronic creative culture (music and art), will occur from April 25th through April 29th.
Entering its 5th year, 88 continues a history of expanding FORWARD Festival’s scope and opportunities for people interested in electronic creative culture. Each year, FORWARD is curated around a specific theme. The theme for this year’s festival is organic. As we enter 2012, we feel that it is important - now more than ever - to get back to our roots, live healthy and embrace that which is raw and pure. Artistically, organic will be represented in all visual aspects of the festival, with a particular focus on the 5 Chinese elements of the natural world: Fire, water, earth, wood and metal. Musically, the festival will focus more on back-to-back DJ nights, artists that we feel have an organic sound and installations that reflect the theme.
FORWARD Festival is proud to present THE OFFICIAL 2012 FORWARD HOUSE SHOWCASE bringing together some of the best talent under one roof that's most likely ever occurred in our fair city.
