This months program is focusing on the Austrian Elevate Festival, which has been taking place for the 12th time this year in Graz. Elevate offers a musical journey away from well-known Best-Of-Sets, challenging artists and audiences alike. Elevate strives to analyze current social developments – aiming to present alternatives, which can contribute to a better future.
The focus this year was We are Europe, which is an initiative that has set out to draw eight European festivals together including Elevate. Each year of this initiative yields a new central topic: 2016 was dedicated to “Cultural Entrepreneurship”. This broadcast features a cutup of the panel dedicated to this topic and a selection of tracks and live recordings of the artists that were featured in the music program like Austrian artists Kompost 3, König and Asfast or international artists like JK Flesh, DJ Earl, DJ Paypal, Anna von Hausswolff, Swans, Saul Williams or Mount Kimbie.
