Hookworms, Clark for Recon Festival 2015

Recon Festival

Recon FestivalHookworms, Clark, Mumdance and Richard Formby are among the artists playing at this weekend’s Recon Festival across Leeds and Bradford.

They will be joined by out-there street musician The Space Lady, Wanda Group, Karen Gwyer and Container who perform across multiple venues including the Brudenell Social Club, Headrow House, Bradford Playhouse and University of Bradford.

This year’s edition celebrates musicians, filmmakers and artists who work playfully with technology and includes a family-orientated masterclass in how to make walls of sound with hands-on devices.

The line-up also features Warp Records electronica pioneers Plaid and sound artist Luke Younger’s electronic music project Helm.

Recon organisers said: ‘We’re lucky in Leeds and Bradford to have so many quality acts willing to play, as well as new and exciting spaces available that add an extra level to the experience.

‘Whether they’re collaborating with innovators or repurposing tools for things they were never intended, artists push the boundaries of how we relate to technology – often revealing a humanistic and soulful side to the purely functional. I think with the line-up this year we’ll experience a diverse range of approaches from musicians, artists, filmmakers doing just that.’
