We were so excited when we first heard that The Creators Project was coming to the West Coast, even more ecstatic when we heard they were setting up in SF, and almost fell out of our chairs when we saw the lineup! But before we get into that – lets back up a minute. For those of you who don’t know about The Creators Project, it is a collaboration between Intel and Vice Magazine working to create a global network dedicated to the celebration of creativity, culture, and technology. They support visionary artists across many disciplines who are using technology in innovative ways to push the boundaries of creative expression.
They’ll will be taking over Fort Mason on March 17th and 18th, transforming it into a massive art and technology festival featuring multimedia art installations, live music performances, film screenings, and panels.
Headlining the festival we have theYeah Yeah Yeahs, who put on a ridiculous show – not to mention Karen O always has the raddest outfits. James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem will be also be DJing alongside some “special visual surprises”. And rounding out the day there will be performances from HEALTH, The Antlers, Zola Jesus, Shabazz Palaces, The Hundred in the Hands, and Teen Daze.
