Experience Sheffield’s burgeoning algorithmic club culture, and witness dance music, handmade from code and machines.

"The scene at an algorave is often what you'd expect from any good techno night - a dark room, engaging visuals. a decent, bass-heavy speaker set-up, and lots of people ready to dance... performers at algoraves respond to each other and the audience in real time, often projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding as improvisation and experiment." - The Wire magazine

AlgoRave is a combination of "algorithms" and "rave", the opportunity to dance to alien rhythms and visuals, all created from code before your eyes. The Algorave scene is fast-growing, informally coordinated from Sheffield, and reaching over 50 cities over five years.

Part of AlgoMech Festival- organisers aim to take Algorave to the next level, bringing together some of the best algorithmic (and mechanical) dance music producers and VJs, playing over Sheffield's fiendish DangerNoise soundsystem, with immersive projections covering the walls of Millennium Gallery. As with the rest of the festival they'll be mixing mechanisms with the algorithms, showcasing repetitive dance music made from handmade robots as well as live code.
