With just two months to go before our celebration at Fira Montjuïc on 10th and 11th November, today we announce the closing of the line-up for MIRA Digital Arts Festival 2023, unveiling the distribution of our music programme by days and putting tickets on sale for Friday and Saturday. Two days and two nights during which the audience will be able to enjoy 26 hours of programming with all the music and digital arts formats that define us: audio-visual shows, concerts, installations, 360º screenings, and DJ sets.
In his return to the stage after four years, Scottish electronic musician Lanark Artefax, a leading light in experimental electronic music, joins the music programme, with audio-visual shows, concerts, and DJ sets previously announced by Mura Masa, Overmono, Sandwell District, Evian Christ, Tirzah, James Holden, Johnny Jewel, Liz Harris (Grouper) as Nivhek, Special Interest, Aïsha Devi, and Hudson Mohawke b2b Nikki Nair, among many other artists.
Along with the Glasgow producer, who will premiere in our country his new show Live A/V in what will be one of his only two performances this year, three new installations complete the line-up: Infinite Acid Machine, a group of robots playing acid music that have been created by the pioneer of 8-bit music and researcher Goto80 and his collaborator Jacob Remin, who will join them for a performance; the audiovisual project INFLORESCENCES by Canadian artist Sabrina Ratté; and the light installation Debris by the Barcelona studio Onionlab.

From today, the daily artist line-up is available for consultation here.
As at our last edition at Fira Montjuïc, music and digital arts will coexist in a space of over 12,000 sq. m that will bring together all the festival’s digital art proposals, including installations by Playmodes, Quiet Ensemble, 11v151131_M06, media.tribe, and Pedro Torres, in addition to those recently announced. And of course, we will continue to feature the MIRA Dome, which will offer immersive experiences with 360º screenings by Ouchhh, Julius Horsthuis, Jordi Massó, and Weidi Zhang in fulldome format, as well as an open-air area for bars and food stalls.
