The Festival opening night is being changed up this year. We are introducing a new ticketed electronica dance night – come out for a later club night right here on Hornby Island.
Speaker Face is an award winning earthy electronic dance duo that melds the sounds of nature and machines. Combining acoustic instruments and wilderness sounds with computers and synths, Speaker Face creates infectious dance beats and sonic landscapes that immerse the listener in melody, groove and atmosphere. Their sound is unique and innovative, bringing the dance floor into the heart of the forest. This band is more than a sound, it’s an experience, winning awards for both their music and their videos, and transporting the audience on a multi-sensory adventure. The visual aspect of Speaker Face is alive in their show, with integrated, artistic set design that embodies and enhances the musical experience.
“Speaker Face is a perfect marriage of old sounds and new. Deep, slow-building sub bass juxtaposed with live violin, all held together by a bare bones beat.” – Beatroute Magazine
“Speaker Face; the folk-electronic band you never knew you wanted – until now” – EarShot Magazine
