    Transference Fest 2019: Night One

    $15 – $25
    This May 24th and 25th, WNUR will be sponsoring Transference Fest, a weekend-long experimental music festival hosted at Elastic Arts. A strong lineup of out-of-town performers have been invited to collaborate with local Chicago acts, and vice-versa, generating a uniquely experimental musicianʼs space that will serve as a physical manifestation of what WNUR seeks to do on the air. Transference Fest will join both regional and international artists for two nights of collaborations and provocative performances that reflect Chicago's rich and internationally heralded tradition in sound and music experimentation. As a community inspired event, Transference Fest is an expression of our shared commitment to under–represented artists and the exhibition of their work without constraint.
