MIRA 2023: here is the main part of the line-up for our 12th edition

06.07.2023

What does digital art taste like? We’ll find out this year at MIRA Digital Arts Festival‘s 12th edition, to be held on 10th and 11th of November in Barcelona. Consolidating our venue at Fira Montjuïc, the site where we set up last year, we will once again hold a two-day, two-night festival during which the audience can enjoy all the music and digital arts formats that have defined our identity to date: audio-visual shows, live musical performances, 360º immersive screenings, art installations and DJ sets. A feast for the senses. An outer taste.

Today we announce a significant part of our line-up for 2023, which maintains our essence by striking a balance between music legends with consolidated careers and a diverse representation of new generations of creators, true to our desire to continue to be a showcase for emerging proposals from multiple disciplines without renouncing the celebration of those cult figures that are already part of the festival’s DNA. In total, 32 artistic proposals including musicians and producers, visual and digital artists, bands and collectives, DJs, singers and songwriters, sound and visual designers and researchers, and creative studios.

These are the artists confirmed today at MIRA 2023:

AÏSHA DEVI LIVE A/V · CRYSTALLMESS DJ SET · EVIAN CHRIST LIVE A/V · HUDSON MOHAWKE B2B NIKKI NAIR DJ SET · HÜMA UTKU LIVE A/V · JAMES HOLDEN LIVE A/V · JOHNNY JEWEL LIVE A/V · JORDI MASSÓ 360º SCREENING · JULIA REIDY LIVE · JULIUS HORSTHUIS 360º SCREENING · KASSEM MOSSE LIVE · MAD MIRAN DJ SET · MEDIA.TRIBE INSTALLATION · MURA MASA LIVE A/V · NATION LIVE · NIVHEK: ENGINE LIVE A/V · OMA TOTEM LIVE · OREN AMBARCHI LIVE · OUCHHH 360º SCREENING · OVERMONO LIVE A/V · PEDRO TORRES INSTALLATION · PÉPE LIVE · PLAYMODES INSTALLATION · QUIET ENSEMBLE INSTALLATION · SANDWELL DISTRICT LIVE A/V · SHELLY LIVE · SPECIAL INTEREST LIVE · TIRZAH LIVE · WEIDI ZHANG 360º SCREENING · ZOË MC PHERSON & · ALESSANDRA LEONE LIVE A/V · 11v151131_M06 INSTALLATION · 33EMYBW LIVE

The rest of the programme will be announced in the next few months.

The graphic campaign and the creative direction of our new edition, based on the concept of An outer taste, are once again the work of Erques Torres and Martin Verastegui.

We find ourselves in a context in which the exhaustive study of our behavior by technologies has created a personalized microcosm around us. Algorithms feed this microcosm every day with ideological, sexual, informative, advertising, and cultural content related to us, creating a sugar-coated reality in a comfortable and cloying environment. In this context, MIRA represents the crack through which the light enters; a fissure that, bit by bit, bursts into our greedy bubble, exposing us to the taste of the complex, the unknown, the uncomfortable… offering us “an outer taste”.

As at our last edition at Fira Montjuïc, music and digital arts will coexist in a space of over 12,000 m2 that will bring together all the artistic proposals of the festival programme. Once again, the musical performances will be shared between two stages: the main stage will host large-format live audio-visual shows, with top-level visual arts, and the second stage will host concerts and DJ sessions. And of course, we will continue to feature our trademark MIRA Dome, the dome dedicated to large immersive projects, as well as an open-air area for bars and food stalls.

From today, tickets for MIRA 2023 can be purchased on DICE for €110 (+ booking fee) here.
