Double CD in gatefold sleeve with artwork by Oliver Barrett.
The inaugural Contra Pop Festival took place in August 2015 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 live act which performed at Contra Pop 2015 is represented here, and we would like to thank the artists and their labels for embracing the project.
Includes unlimited streaming of Contra Pop Festival 2015: An Ahistorical Document
