Last year marked the inaugural launch of what was arguably the most fully-flushed out and completist lineup of worldwide experimental noise 'n sonic jack-offs the country had seen. This year's Neon Marshmallow Fest promises to up the ante, if the initial lineup announcements are any indication. Drum roll, now:
Oneohtrix Point Never
Outer Space (John from Emeralds)
Spiral Joy Band (members of Pelt)
Morton Subotnick!? The grandaddy of electronic music himself. And “more to come.” The festival runs June 10-12 at the Empty Bottle in Chicago, and limited weekend passes are available here.
