Paradigm Festival 2019

Former Sugar Union Terrain, Energieweg 10, Groningen, Netherlands

9 - 11 Aug 2019



Paradigm Festival is one of the most versatile and innovative electronic music festival of The Netherlands. Aside from the international appreciated techno and house artists, there will be a lot of space for creativity. This is a really important aspect which makes Paradigm different in comparison to a lot of other festivals. We are a collective of non-conformists who want to transform the current club and festival feeling into a complete unique experience.

Last year's Parfest was such a blast with Richie Hawtin playing the BALLroom. This year we've invited another pioneer: we are very happy to welcome back Speedy J to Groningen. Check out this clip of him and Richie Hawtin performing together in the early 90's. Such legends!

Knetterijs member Jan Hamstra has made the artwork for Paradigm Festival 2018. We'll soon be able to show you the end result. Keep on reading if you want to find out about his craft. "After agreeing with Paradigm on the sketch, I drew each part separately on linoleum plates, then I cut these out (hence ‘linocut’)’. When I roll ink across the plate, the roller only touches the “higher” parts and the parts I cut away are left untouched. Using an etching press I print the inked carvings. Then I use Photoshop to piece the linocuts together into the final design. This form of printing used to be a lot more common, for example, in pamphlets at the start of the last century. However, the technique has become obsolete because of various modern printing techniques and it is, as you can imagine, a very time-consuming process. The slow process and the raw prints it produces really got me into this technique. Some of my favorite artists from the 20th century also used this technique, like Frans Masereel. I first started making linocuts in 2013 at Academie Minerva Groningen and it has slowly become an integral part of my work since." ▼ More info about Jan:
