Contra Pop Festival 2016: The Second Ahistorical Report

by Various Artists

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Double CD in gatefold sleeve with artwork by Oliver Barrett.

    The second Contra Pop Festival took place in August 2016 on the beach at Ramsgate, Kent (UK), and encompassed live performances from artists working at the intersection between popular music and the avant-garde. This diverse congregation of musicians epitomises a vibrant European scene far from the clutches of the corporate opportunists who threaten to homogenise pop culture. This compilation includes several tracks recorded live at Contra Pop, combined with a selection of previously (un)released tracks by festival artists. We are delighted that every act which performed at Contra Pop 2016 is represented here, and we would like to thank the artists and their labels for embracing the project.
