FESTIVAL GUIDE 2011
HOWDY VISITOR! There are tons of reasons for me to say why Tilburg is all-out happy about Incubate, but I’ll just give you three. One: you can visit about thirty venues around town checking out all the artists. And that makes a cool alternative city tour. Two: The festival works the year round to make independent culture accessible for everyone in Tilburg. It keeps thinking in the city fresh and introduces new approaches to the way we perceive culture in this city. Three: Your visit makes us proud. This city has no renaissance towers or UNESCO approved medieval old towns. But we do have loads of cool & creative people. Incubate is about culture that’s relevant right here, and right now. And that’s what Tilburg is proud to be a part of. Enjoy your stay!

THEME: WE ARE INCUBATE The theatre belongs to all of us; We Are Incubate. No fences, no bars, no gap between artist and audience. The visitor steps out of his role of the passive observer; he participates in the program. The artist has no pedestal; he is one with the crowd. Together they create the experience that is art. Together they are Incubate. “The theatre is the place where ignorant people are invited to see suffering people” Plato In a modern society where individualism reigns, we tend to romanticize the idea of solitary genius and the artist as its personification. Art is often considered complex and difficult, only available to the insider. We reject the concept of collective creativity and collaboration, creating a system of hierarchy and estrangement.
‘We Are Incubate’ is a themed program about the changing roles of artist and public within independent culture. From 12 to 18 September 2011, concerts, movies, exhibitions, master classes and lectures around this central theme take place on different locations in and around Tilburg. ‘We Are Incubate’ shows that art is not something to be intimidated by or look down upon. ‘We Are Incubate’ means both artist and visitor take on the role of curator; creating together, directing the course of things, putting their mark on the curriculum in a nonhierarchical way. Together, artist and visitor can bridge the gap between art and its public, a gap that has become increasingly wider; together they can demonstrate that art for the people is art by the people. ‘We Are Incubate’ thrives on connection and collaboration, joint thinking, friction and resolution and the sharing of ideas and inspiration.
‘We Are Incubate’ means KLF frontman Bill Drummond composes an ad hoc amateur choir and former Crass-singer and Do It Yourself-pioneer Steve Ignorant programs three days in the Paradox theater beside speaking both at our DIY Conference. ‘We Are Incubate’ translates to over 85 piano’s being placed in public spaces in and around Tilburg, and an Open Source Expo showing artworks of over 100 participants. ‘We Are Incubate’ results in seven days of concerts, photography exhibitions, lectures, street art, radio shows, theater and masterclasses. The practice and manifestation of art and culture is no one-way traffic. Creative collaboration in independent culture pushes artistic practice to new heights. ‘We Are Incubate’ means there is no ignorance or suffering, only an organic flow of music, art, lecture, creativity and fun. The theatre belongs to all of us.
THE THEATRE BELONGS TO ALL OF US; WE ARE INCUBATE.
PLAY ME I’M YOURS It stands in the middle of the street, its shiny wooden finish glowing in the sun. You don’t expect to find it here, but you’re too curious to walk on. You take a seat on the stool and gently press one of the keys. A warm, bright tone detaches itself from the instrument and disperses in the air, stroking the pavement and the walls. More keys, more tones; they entice passers-by, who gather around you. The street is your stage; you are the artist and the piano is your instrument. ‘Play Me I’m Yours’ is a project by the British installation artist Luke Jerram. Since 2008, Jerram has placed over 400 pianos in cities all around the world, with the simple instruction “play me, I’m yours”. The pianos can be found in public places like parks, railway stations and market places, on bridges and boats, and are accessible to everyone. Local artists often take the initiative to decorate and paint the instruments, making them even more a part of their environment. ‘Play Me I’m Yours’ is an intervention in public space that aims to make urban dwellers regard and experience their environment in new and exciting ways. The passer-by is no longer the observer; he or she participates in the program by taking a seat and pressing a key. The project stimulates the public to participate and cooperate, and to appropriate its environment. It’s about creativity and fun, and about breaking the common restrictions of public space.
WORLDWIDE, MORE THAN 1 MILLION PEOPLE IN OVER TWENTY CITIES PARTICIPATED IN ‘PLAY ME, I’M YOURS’.
During the Incubate festival, more than 85 pianos are scattered around Tilburg and surrounding villages, placed in the public space. It is the first time that ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’ takes place in the Benelux region. Each participating city has a website where the public can upload movies, photos and stories from the interaction with the pianos. These sites serve as testimonials of the various versions of the project and connect the participating communities.
Worldwide, more than 1 million people in over twenty cities participated in ‘Play Me, I'm Yours’; Tilburg and its region are now added to this list. After Incubate, the pianos will be donated to local schools and charity groups.

His year weâ€™ve selected works of art that have something to do with the We Are Incubate theme. Do it yourself, working together, doing things different. We invited professionals and amateurs to show what they felt they needed to show. Some of it might be difficult to understand, while other works are touching, or even exciting, but it is all worth considering. Art is in the eye of the beholder.
EXHIBITION: During Incubate @DUCATE â€“ last year we started an educationproject. Students adopted regulated posterwalls in the city and learned about freedom of speech, POSTER advertising, the public space and printing-techniques. This year @ducate continued in collaboration with PROJECT artist Koen Delaere and Buro CIST (Cultuur in Scholen Tilburg). This time, we chose to let students of primary schools design the screen printed posters themselves. An overview of the posters can be seen at Duvelhok and a selection of the designs will be spread throughout the city during the festival. Before Incubate a selection of these posters was on display at the Faxx building.
12-16 SEPT, DUVELHOK, 16:00 - 18:00 17-18 SEPT, DUVELHOK, 13:00 - 18:00
INSTALLATION: DJ /RUPTURE – audio installation by Jace The Soy Waltz is an interactive Clayton aka DJ /rupture. It makes “audible” the intersection of global economic forces and local music culture in Brabant. THE SOY WALTZ Continuing a project begun at last year's Incubate, the installation uses boomboxes to play back an archive (of Stichting Brabant Volksliedarchief) of traditional Brabant music. The audience can manipulate the recordings by playing with the boomboxes, otherwise the sounds are automatically transformed by real-time information about the pig farming trade in Brabant. “The Soy Waltz” explores how an archive of traditional Brabant music can be made relevant to the reality of a hyperconnected world. It’s about an economic network with nodes of power that flows across traditional spaces – Brabant's pig farms, fed by Latin American soya and producing meat primarily for export to east Europe. Jace Clayton has shown his audio installations in the Studio Museum of Harlem, and as DJ / rupture he has performed in venues such as The Whitney Museum, MoMA’s PS1, The Apollo Theater, the Pitchfork Festival and Spain’s SONAR.
12-18 SEPTEMBER, VVV, 10:00 - 20:00
EXHIBITION: DIMITAR SOLAKOV – “Rays of sunlight breaking through a cloud; the rush that comes with jumping of a cliff; a stolen kiss…” ‘YOUTH’ The aim of Dimitar Solakov (1987) is to capture everyday moments with his camera; and he succeeds gloriously. Solakovs photography series ‘Youth’ is a documentation of the lives of adolescents in Bulgaria: his personal friends and acquaintances. Besides the documentation of everyday life, ‘Youth’ also includes panoramic landscapes and various pictures of nature: flowers, animals, a cornfield. Despite the great variety in subjects, the individual pictures form one whole composition; a story without beginning or end, like an endless panorama. Dimitar Solakov studied photography at the New Bulgarian University in Sofia. His photographs were published in a number of books and catalogues and have been shown in a few exhibitions throughout Europe. In his work Solakov is one with his subject; he has merged with his camera; nothing stands between him and his surroundings. His pictures are as personal as can be, taking down all barriers between viewer and subject. An occasional blurry lens or a surplus of light don’t affect the strength of the captured moment.
At first glance there is a certain insouciance to his pictures, but Solakovs documentation is no high school commercial.
The roughness in ‘Youth’ is undeniable. Violence, grief and the souvenirs of a suicide attempt are just as present as the rest; Solakov does not censor his friends or himself. Even when one of the friends is found murdered, the camera doesn’t stop; the darkness is captured, but Solakov’s integrity is tangible. He shows the whole spectrum of life, no holds barred; his photos are a testament to friendship, love, joy and grief. And nature is the backdrop to it all, present in almost every picture, giving pulse to the hearts and minds of the people. Despite the grim of reality and the evident hardship in the lives of Solakov and his friends, fear and sadness do not prevail. Youth bounces back like it always does.
10-30 SEPT, BIBLIOTHEEK TILBURG CENTRUM, MON - FRI: 11:00 - 21:00, SAT: 13:00 – 17:00
STREET ART: MOMOTheDOES TILBURG unpredictable course of the work is what gives street art its
strength. A finished piece is never the end stage, but merely the beginning of something new. Once the street artist has finished his last stroke, the external world takes over and breathes life into the art. True street art grows with its surroundings, and the gratification lies in the surprise. It’s the ultimate form of creative collaboration, between artist and surface, between surface and public. Momo has moved street art past the obvious. His colourful work is abstract and minimalist, yet at the same time futuristic, making it very different from any other graffiti you’ve ever seen. His work, often labelled as ‘post-graffiti’ has a certain thoughtfulness to it, and he often uses techniques uncommon to street art, like outdoor collage. Momo has adorned public buildings in New York, Barcelona, Toronto and Sao Paolo with his touch, which is simple yet effective. He has also taken his public art to private spaces, painting the walls inside residential homes in Florida, thus breaking the mysticism behind street art. Whether inside or outside, Momo’s direct approach to his art reveals a desire to find out who ‘the public’ really is, to learn what it thinks of his work and to let this close contact affect his work.
12-17 SEPT, MOMO’S CANVAS, 10:00 - 18:00 REVEALING THE WORK: 18TH OF SEPT.
During Incubate, Momo will decorate Tilburg with his colors, lines and abstract figures, with the help of students of the Fontys Art Academy and local artists. Together they will work on several big murals, bringing colourful life to the public space.
EXHIBITION: THE LOST During theRELAY Incubate festival we collaborate with Lost Painters
and Argument for an exhibition-rally. In the philosophy of our theme: ‘We Are Incubate’, we let Lost Painters have their own way with the Argument venue. Every day 2 or 3 artists will have an exhibition there. During the day the exhibition and the discussions that go with them will be organized. After 8 o’clock we lead a discussion with the artists concerned, the nature of the work and on the significance of the exhibition as part of the relay-exhibition. One of the artists will ‘pass on’ the baton to start up new discussions for the next day.
12-18 SEPT, ARGUMENT, 14:00 - 18:00 AND 20:00 - 22:00
EXHIBITION: NICK HELDERMAN Nick Helderman is a young photographer to whom the term
‘upcoming’ does not apply. His travels have resulted in intimate documentation of the musicians behind Les Savy Fav, Health and Megafaun, to name a few. He captures music without the music: the backstage, the tour van, the exhaustion and the dirt, and the people who immerse themselves in it. Nick Helderman will show a selection of his music photographs. His work is documentary; Helderman avoids the glitter of the rock cliché’s and prefers to focus on the beauty of the grim.
12-18 SEPT, VVV, 10:00 - 20:00
EXHIBITION: NEW JACKS 3.0 New Jacks is what Incubate is all about: helping artists to hatch.
With new Jacks 3.0 we have asked five young artists that recently graduated at local academies to present their autonomous view on the theme of this year: We Are Incubate. Other than previous years is this exhibition not only available during the Incubate week but it will last until October 9th.
8 SEPT - 9 OKT, BKKC, 12:00 - 17:00 (CLOSED ON MONDAY)
PAUL GEELEN Paul Geelen is working on and organises a structure wherein personal intuition can become more universal. During New Jacks 3.0 he provokes the spectators view with a contemplative fade along boundaries of public space and private domain. Occurring between two extremes, or in the middle of that range. Paul Geelen - Stage barrier
MARTIJN VAN DALEN
Visual artist and theater maker Martijn van Dalen wants to stop people in their tracks and think about their lives. With humor, engagement or mystery he wants to show contradictions in what we say in relation to what we do. “I don´t want to be a preacher. And although my work pretends to be a message, it really isn´t.”
JOOST JANSEN – WE ARE JOOST JANSEN “I, Joost Jansen am crazy, colourful and creative. I trust my intuition while making fashion related inspiration and prototypes. I make unique objects and magazines and have my own clothing line.” Joost Jansen's project is an artist residence. Each day of the festival, a different artist is invited to work on a personal project. Each day a little celebration is held to show the 'end'-result. The project can be seen live on: www.wearejoostjansen.nl The artist-residence will land in the garden of de NWE Vorst and will have the following artists working there: Thursday 8th, 20:00

MEREL VAN BEUKERING Photography is her game. And using surrealism she’s winning it. Having studied both photography and communication & design, the work of van Beukering comes across as very clean and slightly odd, but always striking. It should come as no surprise then that she’s already won several awards for her work. Merel van Beukering
TIJL ORLANDO FRIJNS
Tijl Orlando’s work mostly comes in the form of installations. He creates an environment or changes the existing environment. In these spaces, which are strongly based on architectural phenomena, is room for smaller, more or less autonomous works which come in form of sculptures, paintings and photo's.
EXHIBITION: OPEN For SOURCE EXPO the Open Source Expo we asked our community to present
work during Incubate. No work was turned down, and our curator made it into a coherent exhibition by placing the objects in the space. This way not only the curator, but you as well could influence the program. And so you did. We are very proud to list all participants on the following pages.

INSTALLATION: SMSLINGSHOT We are not a passive audience; we must obtain the privilege and
the right tools to create our own multimedia content in the streets. But in contrast to the old-fashioned posters in the streets, itâ€™s nearly impossible to create own content or even hang up your digital video. The SMSlingshot is equipped with a high frequency radio, hacked arduino board and laser. Text messages can be typed on a keypad which is integrated in a slingshot. Type a message, aim on a wall and shoot. See for yourself what happens next. This installation is made by VR/urban, a collective of public media interventionistas founded in 2008 and since then working together to create public media real-time installations.
15-17 SEPT, CITY CENTRE, 21:00 - 01:00
WHATSPACE / LET'S JAM Visual arts jam during the Incubate week. The guys from Whatspace run a project where they collaborate on a daily base with students and other artists, often guests at the festival, and create posters and other printed materials. Shapes and forms will range from hardcore abstract to collage, plus anything else that comes along. These works will be on display during the festival and at two special temporary poster walls. One at De Heuvel, the square in the middle of the city centre and one at the central station.

INSTALLATION CONCERT: WINEKE WORKS WITH Multimedia artist Wineke Gartz and psychedelic rock band Wooden Shjips will be performing a very special installation concert. Repetitive sound meets repetitive imagery. The music WOODEN SHJIPS takes you on a trip and the visuals tell you where to. Or do they? Videos from different places and times are merged into a hallucinogenic experience.
For Incubate 2011 Wooden Shjipsâ€™ live music and Wineke Gartzâ€™s video and slide installations will be joined into a unique installation concert. The collaboration will take place in a setting of a new designed installation by Gartz, specially recorded tracks by Nash Whalen, improvisations and The Wooden Shjips Live. By doing this a video installation fades into a concert and the other way around.
Wineke Gartz is an Amsterdam-based multi-media artist. She makes works of light with collage techniques and works with overlapping projections of slide projectors, beamers and collages on paper. This is the first time Gartz and Wooden Shjips will collaborate in a live setting. During the whole festival week a new big installation by Gartz will be on display.

I ALMOST LOVE YOU What is left to relate to when layers of re/presentation are internalized to a constituent level? Prepared with naivety and a microphone Fanni Futterknecht’s character re-measures the performative playground for the ‘acting out’ of affection. With artificialness (meaning not real), tableau-like projections (like puppets) within relationships are reflecting (being looked at) themselves. Mechanisms of objectification (who’s looking at who?) are getting mixed up by a subjective potency of performer and spectator (anyone in the room can be performer or spectator, it depends on your view). A masked performance, protected from authenticity and sentiments – almost.

year’s theme of Incubate: We Are Incubate. The conference offers reflection on the program of the festival and on the value of creation in society. We want the event to be accessible for everyone. That’s why we chose to make use of the Pay What You Want-pricing mechanism.

MICHAEL AZERRAD KEYNOTE SPEECH Michael Azerrad is an American music journalist and author of the books Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana and Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991. He also was a contributing editor of Rolling Stone and a writer for a.o. The New Yorker, Mojo and Spin. Azerrad thought someone should tell the story about the influential community called punkrock. In true DIY spirit, he decided to write the book himself, coming up with Our Band Could Be Your Life. The book was issued ten years ago, and was named one of the 50 best music books ever written by The Guardian. In the book, Azerrad writes about thirteen bands that, while finding relatively little mainstream success, did have an establishing role in American alternative and indie rock. He describes the story of (amongst others) bands like Black Flag, Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr.
At the Incubate DIY Conference, Michael shares the insights he gained while interviewing the bands and writing the book.
BILL DRUMMOND LECTURE AND PERFORMANCE OF THE INCUBATE 17 Bill Drummond is best known as co-founder of late 1980s avant-garde pop group The KLF and its 1990s "avant-art" media-manipulating successor, the K Foundation. With The KLF, Drummond scored multiple number 1 hits and wrote “The Manual”, a book on how to write a number 1 hit.The K Foundation is notorious for burning one million pounds in 1994. The17 is Bill Drummond's latest work. It is always a unique and one-off performance. The17 is a reaction to pre-recorded music where an ad hoc choir, this time consisting of visitors of the DIY Conference, will perform one of Drummond’s works. Bill Drummond will perform The17 at the conference with all the visitors attending his speech. It’s a unique possibility to become part of one of his works.

Crass was one of the first bands to arrange their record sales and concerts without interference from the music industry and asked fans to make their own merchandise. John Robb writes for The Observer, The Guardian and The Independent. He will interview Ignorant about DIY, Crass’ and Ignorant’s aesthetic and his autobiography The Rest is Propaganda.

UIT DE BROEDSTOOF (FROMA multidisciplinary THE INCUBATOR) evening about the outsider artist. With an
interview of Klaus Beyer by Arthur Kok, philosopher at Tilburg University, short stories by a.o. author A.H.J. Dautzenberg and a selection of short films from Wolphin. The term Outsider Art, launched in 1972 by a British art historian, is a collective term for works of art produced outside the regular circuit of academic courses, galleries and museums. An outsider is someone that doesnâ€™t belong and moves outside of the mass. The archetypical outsider lives and works in isolation, does not care about emancipation and doesnâ€™t fight for recognition. He creates from his own needs. This is a co-production with De Rode Kamer and Kamermans Kermis. (www.facebook.com/derode.kamer, www.kamermanskermis.nl)

Anyway, we’re glad you’re here to experience some cutting-edge music. HOW TO READ: The first character of an artists’ name (or program) will define where you can find that entry, except for ‘The’.

A GRAVE WITH NO NAME (UK)
ALASDAIR ROBERTS (UK)
A Grave With No Name, oneman project of Alex Shields, has grown into a full three piece nowadays. Curled up somewhere between Animal Collective, Pavement and My Bloody Valentine, but given the wide range of genres you never know what to expect. Short tracks that range from warm distorted electric guitars to fuzzy acoustic pop with echoing vocals on top. Intense and very atmospheric dreamy pop! Sun 18 Sept, 15:30 - 16:15, Cul de Sac
Raised in central Scotland by former folk guitarist Alan Roberts, Alasdair began playing guitar and writing music at a young age. After releasing some albums with his band Appendix Out, Roberts decided to go solo in 2001. Since then he built up an impressive discography on his own and in the process also found time to collaborate with American singer/ songwriters Will Oldham and Jason Molina. Sat 17 Sept, 19:15 - 20:00, Pauluskerk
Lo-fi, Shoegaze, Noise pop
AFTERSCHOOL AVANT-GARDE Avant-garde

They get free access to a special program of Independent artists. There’s drumming lessons with and by Holland’s best and legendary jazz drummer Han Bennink, they paint with Kati Heck, create new sounds with Sylvain Chauveau, perform with Peter Fengler & Hans Zimmerman's magic show and step into Felix Kubin’s personal universe.

▲ ALEXANDER TUCKER (UK) Folk, Psychedelic Alexander Tucker is no stranger in Tilburg anymore, having already played at the Roadburn festival in 2009! And his droning, acoustic guitar virtuoso folk did fit very well in the program, but also at Incubate this year! After already having similar artists such as Six Organs of Admittance and Boduf Songs at past Incubate(d) editions, we look forward to having Tucker playing this year’s festival! Sun 18 Sept, 15:45 - 16:30, 013 Stage01
ANDY T (UK)
Self described as a band meant to be understood by people sick of following musical trends, live out music with dedication and believe in expressing ideals with their own art. Could have been a Incubate description! But it’s from Alpinist, who take their influence from (neo)crust like His Hero Is Gone and From Ashes Rise, mixed with the bleak guitar passages from Cult of Luna and hints of screamo. Fri 16 Sept, 21:30 - 22:15, Little Devil
The legendary Crass Records (obviously started by Crass), released loads of breaking releases by the likes of Anthrax, MDC and Zounds (Incubate 2010), but also a release by Andy T for a change. The “for a change” part is because Andy T is actually a poet, who releases spoken word with lyrical topics including anarchism, backed by ambient soundscapes. ► Steve Ignorant in residence Sun 18 Sept, 17:00 - 17:45, V39
ANNE FRANK ZAPPA (NL)
Straight from the Alps from Swiss we welcome Amagortis to this year’s Incubate. But don’t expect any yodeling; more like muddy low grunts like a sucking pig trapped in a well. Wonder what happens when Dying Fetus smoke to much pot? Amagortis is what would come out! Disgusting midtempo death metal driven by superb drumming, sounding like a whole rhythm section is marching through your living room. Sat 17 Sept, 19:00 - 19:45, Little Devil
Anne Frank Zappa is a new project from the one and only Elle Bandita, together with children’s book writer Jerry Hormone and hardcore thug Marcel Alexander Wiebenga! This time making garage punk noise and crazy mixtapes. Prepare for some serious ear damage. ► Hollandse Nieuwe Thu 15 Sept, 22:00 - 22:30, Cul de Sac
Hardcore, Crust, Screamo
Spoken word, Ambient
Noise rock, Psychedelic
According to the guys from Anchor, they are on a mission to entertain, provoke and inspire to action. Influences obliviously come from their touring buddies in Trial, as well as other early/90s straight edge hardcore bands such as Judge. Traveling all the four corners of the globe, Anchor continue spreading their aggressive but very passionate music, sharing it with the Incubate attendees this time! Sat 17 Sept,22:15 - 23:00, Hall of Fame
No social media, no recordings, just live performances, but we booked this strange French act Antilles straight away! Not only does this new band contain band members of Sister Iodine and The Berg Sans Nipple, but video’s of their live performances already lived up to every expectation. Expect a wall of rhythmic psychedelic noise sounds with the intensity of A Place to Bury Strangers and Swans. Sat 17 Sept, 19:30 - 20:15, Cul de Sac
APNEU (NL) Garage rock
According to their Tumblr, Apneu’s upcoming dates with Nirvana in the US were cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, but we managed to give them a spot at Incubate 2011! Catchy lo-fi garage-pop from our capital city. ► Hollandse Nieuwe Thu 15 Sept, 20:30 - 21:15, Cul de Sac
AURA NOIR (NO) Black metal, Thrash
▲ AUTHOR & PUNISHER (US) Drone, Industrial
Unlike most Norwegian black artists these days, Aura Noir takes us to the very earliest days of black metal when Venom, Slayer, Motörhead, Voivod and Bathory records were the main inspiration, played in dark and obscure basements. Raspy and raw black with a thrashy punk vibe like the later Darkthrone albums is what Aura Noir is all about! Time to get your spike belts on, this one’s for the headbangers! Thu 15 Sept, 22:45 - 23:30, 013 Kleine Zaal
Author & Punisher is an industrial doom and drone metal, one man band utilizing primarily custom fabricated machines/ controllers and speakers from raw materials and utilizing open source circuitry. The devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation, robotics and mechanical tools and devices, focusing on interaction with machine. Expect heavy homemade drone and doom influenced sounds. Sat 17 Sept, 21:00 - 21:45, 013 Stage01
BABY DEE (US)
Austra is the new brainchild of Katie Stelmanis. With a background as an opera singer, she soon turned to rock music and even did guest vocals for Canadian hardcore band Fucked Up. After this Katie formed Austra; retro/80s synth-pop in between Depeche Mode and Siouxie and the Banshees, mixed with gloomy modern electronic music like La Roux and Royksopp and a spooky gothic soundscape. Fri 16 Sept, 22:45 - 23:30, 013 Kleine Zaal
With a background of playing with Antony Hegarty (on the Anthony and the Johnsons debut) and David Tibet’s Current 93 Baby Dee already built an extensive discography. But also very successful as solo artist, she (once a he) plays piano, harp, accordion and organ, each in its own breathtaking unique way.

BATTLE OF THE RECORDERS / BATTLE OF THE BLOKFLUIT (NL)
BENTON (UK) Dubstep
Recorders, Contemporary composed
That's right, a true Battle of the Recorders (flutes; a 'blokfluit' as we call it in The Netherlands). It's on! Anna Stegmann, Fransesca Thompson and Karolina Bäter will take each other on. ► Redecorators Sat 17 Sept, 14:00 - 14:30, FAXX Building
It were the good old jungle tracks like DJ Krust’s Jazz Note that got Benton into playing music since he was about nine years old. But it wasn’t until 2007 that he started making his own beats, shortly rolling into the dubstep scene after that. His tracks eventually got picked up by the one and only N-Type for his Wheel & Deal label, releasing his deep, dark and dangerous bass tracks. Incubate, beware! ► Trigga#21 Fri 16 Sept, 23:15 - 00:45, Midi Bar Area
Beard]+. was initially formed by two friends in late 2009 as an experimental drone act, but the project has since transformed into a somewhat schizophrenic solo venture that mixes elements of harsh, uncompromising noise with soothing yet unsettling ambient melodies. ► Noise Vault, The Sat 17 Sept, 21:30 - 22:00, Koen's Workspace
BEN UFO (UK)
Dubstep, UK funky
A lot of Incubate related artists such as James Blake, Headhunter (Addison Groove) and Untold lead towards one man, Ben UFO! Ever since 2007 Ben has been putting out their quality dubstep records from them and many more, influenced by uk/future garage, techno and broken beats. His DJ sets are filled with none the less, as you can hear on his bi-weekly show on the infamous London-based Rinse FM radio. ► XLR8R in residence Sat 17 Sept, 22:00 - 23:00, Midi Theater
BERT ON BEATS (EST) Cumbia, Dubstep, Bass
Judging his music, you wouldn’t think Bert on Beats (aka DJ Critikal) is actually from Tallinn, Estonia. His Dj-sets and productions are a huge source of UK Bass (Dubstep, grime, garage), Kuduro and Cumbia beats. He did a remix contest in 2009 for Daniel Haaksman (Incubate 2010) who picked him up for his Man Recordings label, followed by banging releases and remixes for the likes of Buraka Som Sistema and Ku Bo! ► Global Mashups Fri 16 Sept, 02:45 - 03:45, 013 Stage01

As if Instra:mental didn't deliver enough goodness yet, Al Bleek (half of the duo) started releasing records and bringing danger all over the world under the name of Boddika as well! A groovy connection between electro, house, techno and a bit of dubstep is where it’s at this time, with a good dose of 90’s acid and punchy 808 techno as well. ► XLR8R in residence Fri 16 Sept, 00:00 - 01:00, Midi Theater
BOTS is a local dubstep DJ from neighbour city Breda, who has been active as a DJ, animator VJ and promotor for more than 10 years. After tearing the roof of at earlier Trigga editions BOTS is back for this special Trigga at Midi Theater! ► Trigga#21 Fri 16 Sept, 21:00 - 22:00, Midi Bar Area
BRACKLES (UK) Dubstep
Warming up with DJ sets at the infamous FWD nights in London (home for the likes of Skream, Pearson Sound, N-Type and many others) certainly helped Brackles gain his well deserved fame. By regular appearances on Rinse FM and releases on Planet Mu and !K7, he spreads his 2-step/garage influenced dubstep beats all over the London scene. Dangerously energetic, funky and rolling! ► XLR8R in residence Sat 17 Sept, 23:00 - 00:00, Midi Theater
Bong-Ra is the performing name of Dutch breakcore musician Jason Kohnen from Utrecht. Formed in 1996, initially producing and DJing jungle music. Previous to Bong-Ra Jason Kohnen performed as bassist and drummer for stoner/doom metal band Celestial Season amongst others. Kohnen's style contains a variety of crossovers and fusions of different genres, including metal, gabba, jazz, rave, and jungle, becoming one of the front runners of the breakcore genre, sometimes credited as "yardcore" or "raggacore", blending reggae and ragga with breakcore. ► Grudgefuck Sat 17 Sept, 02:00 - 03:00, Midi Bar Area
BRASSTRONAUT (CAN) Indie, Jazz
Brasstronaut are something very unique, even though their name will indicate you’re dealing with some corny brass/funk/jazz band. The band bases their music around very catchy indie pop songs, but add some unorthodox instruments like horns and clarinets. What comes out is a very innovating take on pop music, sometimes even cinematic with a little retro touch and textured jazzy drumming parts. Sun 18 Sept, 18:00 - 18:45, Cul de Sac
▲ BONG-RA (NL) Electronic, Breakcore
BROTHER JT (US)
CAPILLARY ACTION (US)
Brother JT comes from the Philadelphian garage rock scene, who spent his 80’s and 90’s performing with the band The Original Sins. And shortly after this band disbanded, JT carried on pursuing his solo career. His music consists of hazy vocals with highly spiritual lyrics, uneasy to classify trippy and sometimes noisy psychedelic pop. The little brother of Roky Erickson and Daniel Johnston, so to say! Fri 16 Sept, 22:15 - 23:00, Kafee 't Buitenbeentje
It’s usually with bands like these that you come up with the most ridiculous descriptions, like avant-garde progressive rock. We’ll try anyway. Capillary Action sounds like attention disordered jazz rock by gals who spent they spare time very well dissecting Dillinger Escape Plan songs, adding orchestration (!) and contradicting catchy rock vocals on top. Sat 17 Sept, 23:30 - 00:15, Cul de Sac

Old and new school Tekno with a K from Tilburg. For all the speakerhuggers and dance floor chuggers! ► Grudgefuck Sat 17 Sept, 23:00 - 00:00, Midi Bar Area
BURNING YELLOWS (US) Lo-fi, Shoegaze, Pop
Emerging from the Portland DIY scene, Burning Yellows might as well soon be the next thing within the lo-fi pop scene! With a spacey, even a little hazy production, Burning Yellows adds a truckload of echo sounds effects to singer Kyja’s vocals, backed with psychedelic, atmospheric pop songs. They come closest to Dum Dum Girls or Vivian Girls with the reverb channel on full! Sat 17 Sept, 22:00 - 22:45, Kafee 't Buitenbeentje
The nihilistic Celeste will probably hate you for being part of mankind, but will surely be thankful if you visit their show. If Envy, Neurosis and Converge would make love (or hate in this case), Celeste would be their deranged child. Playing in a small, dark venue with the minimal use of lights and some intense visuals suits their blackest and bleakest nihilistic music the best. And they certainly will do so! Sat 17 Sept, 19:45 - 20:30, 013 Stage01
CHARLES GAYLE (US) Free jazz
Will all the John Coltrane fans please stand up? Unfortunately Coltrane wasn’t available during Incubate, so we’ve booked another jazz legend; Charles Gayle! Rumor goes Gayle had been a homeless street musician for over 20 years, although he never confirmed nor denied this himself. But in the late 80’s he became a well known, diverse artist ranging free jazz to bepop, even performing with The Rollins Band. Sat 17 Sept, 18:30 - 19:15, De NWE Vorst

Codasync is one of those bands that can’t be stereotyped. Or as they say themselves: “To us all that matters is that the music sounds right, and good music is indescribable.” Their latest album ‘Snacycod’ is full of spontaneous ont-the-spot compositions, almost always recorded live and sprinkled with a touch of seventies. Almost like an ongoing jam session where all music genres are allowed. Sun 18 Sept, 17:30 - 18:00, Sounds
CONSTITU SOUND (ARG)
CRYPTIC SALVE BAND (UK)
Pedro is the guitar player for Dick el Demasiado & Sus Exgerados and Julio is a DJ who mixes traditional cumbia music with electronics and with this laid the foundation for the current electro cumbia sound. Together they create Constitu Sound, named after cumbia capital Constitución (Argentina). Live this translates into an electro pop mashup, designed for the better global dance floors.

Contakt recently released his debut release on the label full of deep, melodic and funky dubstep and techno beats, even including a remix by the legendary DJ Rolando. Currently well settled in the record bags of the likes of Sinden, Loco Dice and Brodinski! ► XLR8R in residence Sat 17 Sept, 21:00 - 22:00, Midi Theater

The Cravats is a legendary punk band with a saxophone from England formed in 1977. After the band went on hiatus in 1982, several members continued to play in other bands and side projects.

They'll work under the direction of Daedelus on their own music of which he takes a sample every day and uses it in a new song that will be put online every night. On Saturday he will do a DJ set in which he incorporates the songs that were made during the week. Fri 16 Sept, 20:00 - 21:00, 013 Kleine Zaal
DAVID HEARTBREAK (US)
On stage this band turns out into an aggressive tank of sludgy hardcore like barely seen before. Raw and pissed off with some bleak, slow sludge/black passages like Celeste and extremely heavy drumming passages. One of those bands who are a danger to our provided backlines, but we couldn’t resist giving them the chance to bring a good dose of anger on stage. Beware of broken drumsticks flying around! Sat 17 Sept, 15:30 - 16:00, Hall of Fame
Playing everything from Hip Hop, Reggae, dancehall, Moombahton, Kuduro, dutch house, baile funk and everything in between; David Heartbreak has no limits! The dance floor is bumping while Heartbreak is on the turntables. His current involvement with the Moombahton movement has him touring the globe and gathering attention from the most elite, starting an onslaught of followers. ► Monsters of Moombahton Sat 17 Sept, 02:30 - 04:00, Studio
DEAD NEANDERTHALS (NL)
In a time before time (read: sixties), there was this band that came from beyond. The starting point for a musical movement not seen before. Or after. The movement? Heavy metal. The band? Black Sabbath. Of course such a band deserves to be honored. Time after time. Danava from the US does a great job at this if you ask us. Smoke that grass, clench your fist, grab a beer and let the worship commence! Sun 18 Sept, 19:15 - 20:00, Little Devil
Hailing from Nijmegen, Netherlands and using nothing more than sax and drums, we present to you Dead Neanderthals. Expect an epic dissonant fusion of jazzy saxophones mixed with blastbeats from this duo. After releasing 3 albums while having only played their first show earlier this year, this hyper productive duo will bring an exclusive show you sure don’t want to miss! PS: Dead Neanderthals want to give away a free goodie after the show for those that have added us to their personal programme on www.incubate.org! Fri 16 Sept, 20:00 - 20:30, Kafee 't Buitenbeentje
Grindcore, Free jazz
DARK CASTLE (US) Sludge
DEFEATED SANITY (DE) Death metal
Those who’ve seen Defeated Sanity at Neurotic Deathfest last year know that this band will bring some unequalled death metal brutality to Incubate. Expect some technical madness that will make every self-proclaimed “technical” band on the planet sound too straight forward. Low, brutal vocals with complex bass tabs and lighting fast drumming that sometimes even leans towards jazzy parts Sat 17 Sept, 20:15 - 21:00, Little Devil
Don’t get fooled by this two men (or man + woman actually) band, Dark Castle hold one’s own with the other bands in the genre. Female fronted sludge with guts is the least you can expect, as Dark Castle certainly takes things a bit deeper. Their hallucinogenic music draws you into a psychedelic trip of plodding riffs, deep grunts and shrieks and a pounding slow rhythm section. Fri 16 Sept, 01:00 - 01:45, 013 Kleine Zaal

This UK-based dj and producer already has a huge discography with tracks on labels such as Boka, Black Box, Osiris (Kryptic Minds’ label), Wheel & Deal (N-Type’s label) and the Dutch Subway label. Not your average, superficial dubstep; is songs are extremely diverse but have one thing in common; being deep and dark! ► Trigga#21 Fri 16 Sept, 00:45 - 02:15, Midi Bar Area

Indian, Islamic and Iberian sounds in a single DJ set? Such a musical scenario is not inconceivable for DJ Umb who has provided lovers of electronic music with introductions to new exciting corners of the music culture.

This successful night carries on hosting artists like Appleblim, Ramadanman, Bar9, Bare Noiz, Jack Sparrow and many more. Locally also known for running the Antenna Records recordstore, but those who’ve seen him tear down the 013 Stage01 last year during Incubate know the real deal. Fire! ► Trigga#21 Fri 16 Sept, 22:00 - 23:15, Midi Bar Area
Syd Barret (Pink Floyd) has reappeared under the alias of The Doozer. Kidding. On the serious note, The Doozer is a musician from Cambridge who ‘builds’ music, as he insists on calling it himself. The building results in eccentric poppy psychedelic folk music, easily taking you back to the 60s. But with weird keyboard tones, drum machines and humoristic lyrics (“I’m too old for public transport”). Sat 17 Sept, 20:00 - 20:45, Weemoed

ELKE MEIRSMAN (NL)
Donné et Desirée are two nice, but sometimes noisy boys. Together they produce fragile soundscapes which often lead to sonic whirlwinds. Influenced by No Wave, Free Jazz and the New York School, they sometimes make clouds float in their composure, but often dissonant splendor, from a distance almost unnoticed. When they collide, they create intense storms and hurricanes, accompanied by thunder and lightning. Sun 18 Sept, 16:30 - 17:00, Sounds

EVE LIBERTINE & CHARLES WEBBER (UK)
Indie, Noise rock
Electronic “I’m just 22 / I don’t mind dying” sings EMA on her debut single. We sincerely hope not, because we have lined her up for this year’s Incubate! Coming from a punk rock scene (pictures from her with Danzig are floating around on the internet!), she played with Gowns and finally started EMA. She easily takes you back to the 80s, sounding in between Courtney Love and Patti Smith mixed with organ sounds and weird noises. Sun 18 Sept, 21:15 - 22:00, 013 Kleine Zaal
Libertine and Webber present the power electronics work Listen, Little Man! for voice, test tone generators and video which draws on the writing and research of Dr. Wilhelm Reich, a private polemic against his own treatment alongside the individual and collective stupidity.

FALL, THE (UK) Post-punk, Punk
Esben And The Witch is based on a dreamy Danish fairytale in which little children are being murdered. Pretty grim right? Musically this translates in a dark, evil gloomy atmosphere somewhere in between Fever Ray and Soap and Skin. Musically it’s indie rock that is all over the place, sometimes dark and epic, sometimes very minimalistic. Sat 17 Sept, 20:00 - 20:45, De NWE Vorst
▲ ESBEN AND THE WITCH (UK) Indie, Noise rock
We are very honored to have English postpunk band The Fall at Incubate! Founded in 1977 and fronted ever since by Mark E. Smith, The Fall was first associated with the punk movement of the late 1970s. Out of all the late-'70s punk/post-punk bands, none were more prolific than the Fall though. The band has always kept a steady eye on the future, undergoing numerous stylistic changes since their origination. The Fall’s sound is characterized by an urgent and abrasive guitar-driven sound and Smith’s snarling vocals filled with bitter cynicism. The Fall have always maintained a strong cult following, and inspired a whole new generation of underground bands. Sun 18 Sept, 22:00 - 23:00, 013 Dommelsch Zaal
FELIX KUBIN (DE)
FLYING HORSEMAN (BE)
His German pokerface might indicate Felix Kubin is dead serious, but his brilliant cover of Lionel Richie’s ‘Hello’ shows his humoristic side as well! He is known for 80s band Die Egozentrischen 2, inspired by the German electronic scene (like Kraftwerk and DAF) and his successful solo career. He “lives and works against the gravity with sci-fi pop, noise and animation films, radio plays and broadcasting” No restrictions! Wed 14 Sept, 21:45 - 22:30, Paradox
The Belgian response to Woven Hand/16 Horsepower so to say is Flying Horseman!. Well structured, intimate alt-country songs mixed with psychedelic blues solo’s. There's this thick, dreamy folk feeling over them, but with danger just right around the corner. Think of the same melancholic line in their tracks as Woven Hand which also calls for comparison to their country mates from Kiss The Anus Of A Black Cat. Sun 18 Sept,15:00 - 15:45, 013 Kleine Zaal
FORD & LOPATIN (US)
Fleck is currently running big things from his studio in Greece, but will soon be hitting the Dutch stage for the first time as well. He’s currently signed to labels like Six Degrees and Generation Bass Records, but is also cofounder of Breathe Records together with DJ Booker. His deep dubstep sets are filled with reggae influences as well as some pure old school jungle beats. ► Global Mashups Sat 17 Sept, 02:00 - 03:45, 013 Stage01
A “shwagy situation” resulted in changing the name from Games into their surnames, Ford & Lopatin featuring members of Tigercity and Oneohtrix Point Never. Their album was produced in Jan Hammer’s (Miami Vice Theme!) studio, which also gives their music a nice 80s feel. The catchy, synthy electro pop instrumentation is supported by addictive vocals, also nicely drawn through a vocoder sometimes! Wed 14 Sept,23:30 - 00:30, Cul de Sac

Second chances do matter. The Fresh & Onlys had to pull out of last year’s Incubate, but will make a second attempt this year. Deeply rooted in the psychedelic sound of San Francisco’s music, The Fresh & Onlys adds a raw garage sound to this with catchy echoing vocals, tambourine laden rhythms and country guitar riffs. With a nostalgic 60s feel, yet firmly with both feet on 21st century ground. Sun 18 Sept, 18:00 - 18:45, 013 Kleine Zaal
GERARD HERMAN (BE)
0100011101001111! Say what? It means go! in binaire, but it’s also the opening song of Gallops’ EP that got released by Holy Roar last year. Self described as Black Sabbath raped by pacman with Steve Reich glitch instrumental post rock soundscapes. Above all they can best be compared to the math rock of Battles with the uplifting elements of 65daysofstatic. Post-rock with dancing shoes on! Sun 18 Sept, 18:00 - 18:45, Little Devil

For this project we want to bring together vocalists and producers from non western countries, and have them work with upcoming stars inmodern dance genres like dubstep, skweee and tropical house. The idea is that by interacting, they learn about each other's background and that it can help develop both artists styles plus helping non western producers and vocalists gain the same technical en productional abilities as their western counterparts. Bridging the global gap so to speak! The show will be recorded on video posted on the generation bass blog.

GIRLSEEKER (DK) Indie, Lo-fi, Kraak
Girlseeker hail from the very productive Kopenhagen scene, in which mainly Iceage is breaking necks lately. Girlseeker was born through the anus of that indie punk scene. They sound like the retarded cousin of Ariel Pink or as Joy Division on an afterparty on poppers at 2 pm. Your ultilate discovery for 2011! ► Kraak in residence Sat 17 Sept, 19:00 - 19:30, NS16

GOLD KIDS (IT)
Italy’s finest hardcore band Gold Kids was once created as a voice for personal regrets and anger that needs to be released. By numerous tours (five mainland tours as well as some UK and Scandinavian tours), the guys in Gold Kids managed to escape the island of Cagliari and broaden their musical influences. We welcome them with open arms to the festival for some short and brutal, yet melodic hardcore! Sat 17 Sept, 21:00 - 21:45, Hall of Fame

Robb wrote several books on British pop and punkrock, which have become bestsellers and have been since translated in several languages. With shows at festivals like Glastonbury and Reading in the books we are more than happy to welcome Goldblade during Incubate festival in Tilburg. ► Steve Ignorant in residence Sat 17 Sept, 22:00 - 22:45, V39
GORGASM (US) Death metal
Around and about since 1996 but temporary inactive for five years, Gorgasm recently reformed with a brand new line-up. Nevertheless, their technical brutality will be razor sharp as always. Taking the inevitable basics from bands like Suffocation and Dying Fetus, they take death metal to the next step with gore obsessed lyrics, complex guitar riffs and drums which will groove all the way down the show. First tour in Europe since the reunion! Sat 17 Sept, 21:30 - 22:15, Little Devil

HAN BENNINK (NL)
Free jazz, Drums, Experimental Born and raised by his father who was also a drummer, it’s no wonder that Han began hitting everything in sight at a very young age. It is said his first percussion instrument was a kitchen chair. Han performed with bands like The Ex and respected jazz artists like Derek Bailey and Don Cherry. Han is known for bringing objects

HANDSOME FURS (CAN)
HENK & MELLE (NL)
Armed with just a guitar and his wife handling keyboards and a drumcomputer, Handsome Furs was born as a side project of Dan Boeckner’s Wolf Parade. But unlike Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs focuses more on a modern new wave sound in the vein of New Order. With killer guitar riffs, Kraftwerk synths and catchy vocal lines that are heavily inspired by the duo’s trip to Russia. Hopefully Incubate and the city of Tilburg will inspire them just as much! Sat 17 Sept, 23:00 - 23:45, De NWE Vorst
Henk & Melle is a new collaboration between Henk Koorn (since 1985 lead singer of Hallo Venray) and Melle de Boer (lead singer of John Dear Mowing Club).

HERDER (NL) Doom, Sludge
This menacing horde from the north of the Netherlands incorporates foul souls of Urfaust, Dr. Doom, Aborted and a few more unholy covenants. Sludge, doom, crust, filth, blood and sweat are rumoured to be the sole ingredients of a good Herder show. Motörhead once said 'Everything louder than everything else' to which Herder replied with: 'Herder is harder'. Time to check if they walk the talk. Fri 16 Sept, 23:00 - 23:45, Little Devil
Black metal, Metal, Rock 'n roll
You might know HEALTH from their split releases and collaborations with Crystal Castles, but they’ve grown to a mature bulldozer of a band! HEALTH produces a Berlin wall of sound combined with aggression and energy that will make the sweat drip off the roof. A bit like My Bloody Valentine with broken amps, ghostly vocals and minimalistic
Straight from Best (Noord-Brabant) comes Heretic, a long lasting black ‘n roll tank. Storming the underground since 1995, they evolved from a typical black metal band to a more rock ‘n roll influenced band. While still keeping the faith in satan alive, Heretic adds some sleazy Motörhead riffs to their music. They’ve not surprisingly been support for The Devil’s Blood quite a few times! Mosh.

HORST AAN DE MASSIVE (NL)
In 2008, the attendees of the ZXZW festival were treated by the performance of bombastic indie-noise band Bonne Aparte. In the same year, frontman Gerrit van der Scheer formed a new side project called Herrek. Unlike his previous work, Herrek focuses more on the lyrical content as well as harmonic compositions, blended into modern indierock with folk influences, perhaps related to Gerrit’s Indonesian background. Tue 13 Sept, 21:00 - 21:45, 013 Kleine Zaal
Straight from Holland’s Dirty South comes dubstep/drum n bass collective Horst aan de Massive. Part of this collective are DJ’s Wayne Nice & Frank Slappa, DJ Goulash en DJ Floorfilla. After performing at one of the earlier Trigga nights and truely tearing the place apart, we’ve invited these boys back. Expect gruesome lowest of the lowest bass frequencies… ► Trigga #21 Fri 16 Sept, 02:15 - 03:30, Midi Bar Area
HOLY OTHER (UK)
If Burial would decide to continue making his tunes at night in an abandoned place, there’s a huge chance Holy Other would sound something like that! Little is known about this Berlin based artist, but it’s the music that counts after all! Holy Other combines the best from the chillwave scene (think Toro Y Moi), dubstep and the recently hyped “ghost” genres with raw ambient atmospherics on top. ► XLR8R in residence Fri 16 Sept, 21:00 - 22:00, Midi Theater

We couldn’t resist booking one of our Incubated favorites from the past editions, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, for the festival as well! His warm, melancholic ambient guitar noises (think stripped down My Bloody Valentine and early Eluvium) will be supported by the visuals of Paul Clipson. This unique combination already brought them to international film festivals like New York Film Festival and will also be performed live at Incubate! Sat 17 Sept, 22:45 - 23:45, NS16
► JACKMASTER (UK) Electronic, electro, techno
There are few artists we can entrust having Aphex Twin, Radiohead and Addison Groove (Incubate 2010) on the same mix compilation, yet with Jackmaster this turns out into straight awesomeness. Without having a single release out, Fabriclive gave him the chance to mix one of the quality Fabriclive cds. And not only on cd but also at Incubate 2011, Jackmaster will bring raw Detroit techno and UK bass/dubstep together. ► XLR8R in residence Sun 18 Sept, 21:00 - 22:00, Midi Theater

JOHN EDWARDS (UK) Free jazz
John Edwards is an English double bassist, freeimprovising musician. After taking up the bass around 1987, he co-formed The Pointy Birds. The group appeared at festivals in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Leverkusen, Copenhagen. Around 1990, Edwards played his first gigs with London improvisers such as Roger Turner, Lol Coxhill, and Phil Minton. At Incubate, Edwards will play together with Chris Corsano. ► Chris Corsano in residence Sun 18 Sept, 17:00 - 18:15, Paradox Sun 18 Sept, 20:00 - 21:15, Paradox
JOYOUS COSMOLOGY, THE (BE)
The Joyous Cosmology is an intense freak-out collective from Antwerp. It takes improvisation to its most extreme form, aiming for total freedom, fresh poetic associations and cosmic insights. With drums, synths, guitar, sax and a wide range of other instruments these joyous voyagers guide the listener to new dimensions of total synesthesia. ► Kraak in residence Sat 17 Sept, 18:00 - 18:30, NS16
‘I Owe Some People The World But I Owe You Shit’ is just one of the great songs Kerouac wrote. The band from the southern parts of England makes hardcore with an intense sweet heavy bass groove. If you’ve seen bands like Kayo Dot, run,WALK! Or Hang The Bastard at Incubate, take a listen to these guys. You won’t regret. We owe you Kerouac and that ain’t shit!

JULIO BASHMORE (UK)
Just hearing ‘Da Funk’ from Daft Punk at a young age for the first time wasn’t enough for Julio Bashmore, who rushed to the store for a copy of Reason to make his own tracks. Few years later he ended up getting signed by Claude VonStroke to release some of his “Dirtybird” gems (as VonStroke calls it). But above all, the main base for his music is UK House with stomping bass steps, grooving beats and funky leads! ► XLR8R in residence Sun 18 Sept, 20:00 - 21:00, Midi Theater
Germany’s Ketzer is preparing to unleash some more doom and armageddon over Tilburg during Incubate 2011! Taking the heavy metal basics from bands like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and of course Slayer mixed with the black metal of Deströyer 666, Ketzer manufactures their own brand of blackened thrash metal. Kind of like Watain partying together with Sodom while playing some Darkthrone covers! Thu 15 Sept, 20:45 - 21:30, 013 Kleine Zaal
KARINA ESP (UK)
KEVIN DRUMM & THOMAS ANKERSMIT (US)
Black metal, Trash metal, Metal
Karina ESP has been releasing cd-r’s, cassettes, 10”es and other modern record formats since 1998 already, but more important they have gathered quite a cult status within the ambient scene. Warm and dark drones and often dubbed as ‘space rock’. Very minimalistic by using guitar, few other instruments and various effect pedals to create an environmental atmosphere. ► Morc Presents Fri 16 Sept, 21:15 - 22:00, Midi Theater
Electroacoustic artist Kevin Drumm has collaborated with many artists like Taku Sugimoto, multi-instrumentalist Jim O'Rourke, saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and trumpeter Axel Dörner. He will work with saxophonist/analogue synth player Thomas Ankersmit from Leiden, Netherlands at Incubate. How this will turn out? We’re just as curious as you are! Sun 18 Sept, 17:15 - 18:00, NS16
KIDS, THE (BE)
KLAUS BEYER (DE)
“We play better. We don’t spit on the public anymore” says frontman Ludo Mariman of The Kids about their reunion in 1996, but things were different before. The Belgian band was one of the first punk rock acts back in 1976 not from the United Kingdom. Songs like ‘Fascist Cops’ may not be as offending anymore as they were, but after their reunion in 1996, they are still just as catchy! Sun 18 Sept, 18:45 - 19:30, 013 Stage01
Klaus Beyer is no stranger in Tilburg, as we already invited him at the New Year’s reception in 013 earlier this year. But you might know him better from being the man behind albums like Hauptmann Peppers Einsamer Herzen Klub and now exclusively presenting Das Weisse Album at Incubate. That’s right, Beyer translates and performs The Beatles covers and will be doing a solo show as well one with a band (tba). He will also be interviewed at Rode Kamer on Wednesday and we’ll screen a movie of him on Thursday. Kommt zusammen zu Klaus Beyer!

KINDVRIENDELIJK (BE) Noise
Our noise complaints this year will be directed to Belgium’s brutal noise terrorists Kindvriendelijk. Even though their name means child friendly in Dutch, we sort of have a different opinion about this. Nevertheless they will be bringing your daily dose of noise together with red wine and total madness. ► Noise Vault, The Fri 16 Sept, 20:45 - 21:15, Koen's Workspace
KING DUDE (US) Lo-fi, Folk, Neofolk
“My music is the music of the world, of nature, of the devil, of love and destruction” is what King Dude says about his music. He sometimes sounds like Swans going acoustic, but can also go a little more country with spooky soundcapes that sound like the acoustics of a cathedral. His other black/ death metal acts reveal his darker side, but this project also shows King Dude’s more spiritual side. Witch folk perhaps? Sat 17 Sept, 22:00 - 22:45, Pauluskerk
KONGH (SW) Doom, Sludge
If you enjoyed Switchblade at Incubate last year, make sure you catch the Swedish and befriended band Kongh as well. Kongh will guide you through a trip full of distortion, raspy vocals and hauntingly bleak atmospheres. Sometimes as nasty as an uptempo High on Fire record but also as hypnotizing as Neurosis. We can’t forecast the weather, but if there’s a huge dark cloud over Tilburg, you can blame it on Kongh. Fri 16 Sept, 00:00 - 00:45, 013 Kleine Zaal
KOMA ELEKTRONIK SALON Guitar, Noise, Synths
KOMA Elektronik is a start-up company producing true analog audio effect pedals. Rooted in the DIY music scene, entrepreneurs Wouter Jaspers and Christian Zollner are in search for sounds out of the ordinary, effects that go beyond the industry standards, incorporating both technology from the world

KOOL THING (DE)
Indie, Dreampop, Noise rock Kool Thing is named after the first major label single by Sonic Youth. And while there's a bit of noisy guitartones to be found here as well, it's not as violent as Sonic Youth could be. It's more dreamy synth-laden reverb pop that will suit your needs if you're looking for soothing melodies with a touch of melancholy. Beautifully honest music. If you're here for Austra, EMA and the likes, this could be your new addiction. Fri 16 Sept, 22:00 - 22:45, 013 Stage01
KRAAK IN RESIDENCE Left-field, Avant garde
Straight from the vaults of Tilburg’s underground DIY scene comes Laatste Halte, a punk/screamo/hardcore DIY outfit. They released a split cdr with Gonzo (r.i.p.) earlier this year.

Terracota Gate Gerard Herman The Joyous Cosmology Girlseeker Warm Climate Floris Vanhoof Makino Takashi
New weird Polish freak folk sounds a bit weird, but is actually the most accurate description to be given to Kyst, due to the the variety of genres this band explores. The four piece has Norwegian roots but currently residences in Poland. This, mixed with elements from post-rock, indie and a little touch of noisy improv comes close to Akron/Family, Grizzly Bear, Tortoise and their label mates Au (Incubate 2009). Sat 17 Sept, 18:15 - 19:00, Cul de Sac
LAATSTE HALTE (NL)
Kraak started out as a Belgium based record label for off-stream left field avant-garde and deconstructed pop music.

Industrial, Experimental, Noise Although their creepy music is the ultimate soundtrack for crapping your pants, the legendary collective Le Syndicate that formed back in 1982 never promoted nihilism or violence, unlike other noise acts. Their use of TV and city noises layered with (amen) breaks, led to an circulation of their music within the early-noise scene. They influenced artists like Aphex Twin and also the early gabba movement! ‘Joy through noise!’ Sat 17 Sept, 22:30 - 23:30, 013 Stage01
LECHEROUS GAZE (US)
Punk rock, Garage/hard rock
For those of you that know Annihilation Time: Lecherous Gaze is the continuation of that punk band but with another vocalist.

LIGHT BEARER (UK)
LITTLE SCREAM (CAN)
After Fall of Efrafa’s quest came to an end in 2009, singer Alex started a new project which became Light Bearer. The project comes down like a huge wave of post-rock riffs diverged with heavy sludge influences from bands like Buried Inside and Isis. With their music, the story line and art as a great element, Light Bearer constantly hits the light switch between bleak and bright. Sat 17 Sept, 17:15 - 18:00, 013 Stage01
Having only released her first record earlier this year, Little Scream (a.k.a. Laurel Sprengelmeyer) is coming over all the way from Canada to mesmerize us with her guitar, violin, keys and beautiful voice. Her music is best described as soft melancholic folkpop.

LIGHTNING DUST (CAN)
Lightning Dust is the sideproject of Amber Webber and Joshua Wells from Black Mountain. You could say this project has a more basic approach compared with Black Mountain, but that doesn’t hold them from making breathtaking folk music. Lightning Dust is based around Amber’s beautiful, fragile voice and traditional singer-songwriter instrumentation. This is one of those acts that will crawl deep under your skin!

He released his first EP, Changing Crisis in 2005 at the age of 17, and since then performed at the notorious Therapy Sessions events worldwide. ► Grudgefuck Sat 17 Sept, 01:00 - 02:00, Midi Bar Area
From the vaults of Groningen comes the trio Loud Squirt. Their shows are an explosive mixture of high energy garage/punkrock/ rock ’ n roll inspired by bands like New Bomb Turks and The Gories. They recorded their latest 7” in an oldschool analog way directly to tape, so you can imagine what this is gonna sound like.

â–˛ LUSTMORD (US) Dark ambient, Industrial The master of the lowest of the lowest frequencies will perform for the very first time in the Netherlands!

MATS GUSTAFSSON (SW)
For some reason strange, yet maybe very obvious reason, Maruta’s drummer Nick Augusto recently left the band to play in the popular metalcore band Trivium. With the addition of the ex-Nailshitter drummer and a bass player, they are now heavier than ever. Operated by insane, technical riffs and blastbeats at breakneck speed, Maruta produces pulverizing grind with elements of doom, power violence and death metal.

MATTHEW SHIPP (US) Free jazz
Going solo for a jazz pianist might sometimes turn out risky, but Matthew Shipp will leave the Incubate attendees stunned! Shipp has been compared to the pianist version of Peter Brotzmann (Incubate 2010) due to his same gently chaotic improvisations, as well as a combination between the harmony of Bill Evans and the rugged Thelonious Monk sound. Mon 12 Sept, 20:00 - 21:00, Paradox
Some of you might have already seen Mater Suspiria Vision at Incubated 04, but we’re proud to also announce them for the Friday of Incubate.This so-called ghost drone act made a name for themselves early 2010 when their myserious, yet intense videos popped up on YouTube.

By using various effects, echo’s and pedals, he makes this instrument sound like a Sunn O))) track covered on an organ. And what comes out is extremely spacing, hypnotizing music. ► Morc Presents Fri 16 Sept, 23:45 - 00:30, NS16
After DeYarmond Edison broke up, a folk/altcountry band together with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, the well bearded brothers Brad and Phil Cook and Joe Westerlund decided to carry on with a new project which became Megafaun.

Behind the one man project Miracle Fortress lays an ocean of dreamy pop music, yet still complex and textured. The running engine behind the project is a Canadian multiinstrumentalist, but will be supported by members of The Luyas, Adam & the Amethysts to translate his music into a live performance.

MONACHUS (SW) Post-metal, Sludge
From the ashes of the Swedish post-metal act Icos steps up Monachus. After a potential lawsuit and some personal differences within the band, they were forced to change their name. Monachus already secured a track on the Falling Down Compilation II alongside acts such as The Ocean, God Is An Astronaut and Kodiak (Incubate 2010) and will now release their debut in May.

MONSTERS OF MOOMBAHTON
Parade, Edgar Wappenhalter at Incubate. This year Morc is presenting it's own stage.
What’s this Moombahton I keep hearin’ about more and more? Well, moombahton is a genre of electronic dance music. Because the tempo nears that of the reggaeton, the neologism "Moombahton" was created by combining the title of the genre defining track "Moombah" and the "ton" ending of the word "reggaeton" and applied it to the genre. Now you know this, all you need to do is get your body moving to these beats to understand what we’re talking about.

After Mastodon and Baroness it’s time for the next big thing to step up in modern sludge music. And we’ve already signed the petition for Mose Giganticus to be this! The main engine behind the band is the synth driven melodies like Genghis Tron without the crazy drumcomputer.

MY DISCO (AU)
This half Dominican Republic / half Dutch wonderkid from Rotterdam is one of the biggest and prolific bassheads of his generation, singlehandedly putting moombahton (essentially a cross between reggaeton and (slowed down) Dutch house) on the map here in Holland and all around the globe. A kid with big hair that loves to make all kinds of music and share his love for music in the clubs! ► Monsters of Moombahton Sat 17 Sept, 01:00 - 02:30, Studio
My Disco is a young three-piece straight from the Melbourne DIY scene. Starting with uplifting math-rock, the band evolved to their own more complex, yet still accessible rhythmic percussive driven style. Hard to describe, but closest to indie/post punk-like music influenced by the likes of Shellac, Sonic Youth and old krautrock records with a funky undertone. It might sounds a little strange but their music is highly repetitive in a way that makes it extremely hypnotizing and exciting. Sun 18 Sept, 19:15 - 20:00, Cul de Sac

Doom, Shoegaze, Ambient,
Post-punk, Experimental, Minimal wave
Mueran Humanos is an post-punk/ experimental band with Carmen Burguess (machines and voice) and Tomás Nochteff (bass and voice). Together they create haunting, pschodistorted soundscapes filled with strange harmonies, electronic drums and spacy effects. Which isn't that surprising with a bandname that translates to 'Die humans'. Good fun for pessimists. Sun 18 Sept, 16:45 - 17:30, Cul de Sac
Buzzing your ears since 2002, Nadja has been putting out countless releases including collaborations with the likes of Troum and OVO. For some reason never secured a spot in their busy tour schedule at Incubate, but this year we welcome this Canadian two-piece with open arms! Long, hypnotizing tracks that mix atmospheric dooms, drones and ambient and will certainly be loved by fans of drone-pioneers Earth and those who seen Final at Incubate last year.

NO TURNING BACK (NL)
NORBERTO LOBO (PT)
There’s one simple reason why No Turning Back has never been on the bill for Incubate until now; these guys are always on the road. Take that as a compliment! They began playing in 1996 while most of the members were still 16 years old and have been “growing stronger” ever since. Whether they’re bringing their straight forward, no bullshit hardcore to Asia or even Africa, they always get the place moving. Sat 17 Sept, 17:30 - 18:00, Hall of Fame
If you’re into pure acoustic guitar virtuoso, Norberto Lobo should be right up your alley. Stripped down to the very basics, one man with a guitar, Norberto plays mellow instrumental music both on 6-string as well on 12-string guitar. When someone’s capable of turning a Björk song into a stunning acoustic version, you know you’re in the right place! Sun 18 Sept, 16:15 - 17:00, Pauluskerk
NOSAJ THING (US)
OLIVER COLE (IRE)
If Flying Lotus’ beats and Burial’s atmospheres would combine, something closely sounding to Nosaj Thing would emerge. With neck snapping hip-hop beats, glitchy rhythms and grooving synths, Nosaj (actually his first name Jason spelled backwards) will drag you into his deep music along with a very special visual show which will use the whole stage to strenghten the intensity of his music. We’ll dim the lights, Nosaj will provide the earcandy. Wed 14 Sept, 22:30 - 23:30, 013 Kleine Zaal
After leaving the Irish band Turn, Oliver Cole started his solo career and releases his first album 'We Albitri' in 2010. At the Incubate festival, he will be supporting Glen Hansard. Recording his album at the Black Forest in Germany, Cole is at the right place at the Natuurtheater venue in Oisterwijk. So, with our own interpretation of an old Irish saying we would like to say: If you're lucky enough to see Oliver Cole and Glen Hansard, then you're lucky enough.

OBLITERATION (NO) Death metal, Metal
From the same Norwegian graveyard as Darkthrone (the town Kolbotn), comes the inferior brutality tank Obliteration. Old school is the key with this band; think of Autopsy but sped up into a rotten filthy swamp of unashamedly death metal. With Fenriz of Darkthrone saying they sound like the succeeded version of what Darkthrone attempted with “Soulside Journey” and “Goatlord”, you know the catch. Quickly we rot!

Oneman quickly switches, swaps and rides throughout recent and forthcoming dubstep bangers, but we can ensure you’ll hear some grime, garage and reggeaton beats from him as well! ► XLR8R in residence Sat 17 Sept, 00:00 - 01:00, Midi Theater
A fan of Omar Souleyman is a friend of ours! But of course that’s not the main reason why we’ve booked Pinkunoizu. The band members played with other Copenhagen-based bands like Selvhenter, Howl Baby Howl and Valby Vokalgrupp. They call it “an exotic mixture of lo-fi, high-life, modern composition music, ancient folkish songwriting, asian 60's pop and future post-apocalyptic underwater rock”. Sun 18 Sept, 18:00 - 18:45, Weemoed
► PETER BRODERICK (US) Folk, Singer-songwriter Peter Broderick is one of those people with a biography you’ll get instantly jealous of. Being a multi-instrumentalist, Peter plays violin, piano, sings and what not? He played with the Danish Efterklang ensemble as well as Horse Feathers and writes music to accompany ballets. But most of all he makes breathtaking solo work under his own name: a mix of ambient soundscapes guided by stunning piano play and soundtrack-like strings. Absolutely lovely. Sun 18 Sept, Pauluskerk (and lunch concert) Timeschedule, lunchconcert In May he came to Brabant to work on organic farm ‘t Schop and get inspired by nature. He helped birth a calve, went to a slaughterhouse and wandered around the farm while writing new music. During Incubate he will return to that farm and give a special lunchconcert, besides the performance in the church on Sunday. 12:30 – 14:30, Lunchconcert @ ‘t Schop. Tickets (including transportation) at Ticket & Info center (if not sold out yet) 18:45 - 19:30, Pauluskerk (with film of his stay in May)
The lunchconcert at 't Schop includes a delicious lunch of local food, among other from the farm itself. There is the possibility to join a covered wagon behind a tractor to get to 't Schop from Tilburg centre or from the Incubate camping. Tickets are very limited, 40 including wagon. All tickets are 10 Euro, including lunch and transportation.
11:30 Covered wagon leaves at the stop in front of the 013 venue 12:00 Covered wagon arrives and leaves at the stop at campsite Beekse Bergen 12:30 Start of the lunch 13:15 - 13:45 Concert Peter Broderick 14:00 Departure covered wagon back to Tilburg city centre.
PRELIMINARY SATURATION (NL)
The Darkest of Grays is the well-chosen title of Planks’ latest album. On one side the bleak crusty hardcore sound with on the other side a more dynamic mix of old-Isis and Mastodon with an occasional wave of black metal blasts. With this, a grey blend of killer guitar riffs, a core approach to their drumming and lyrical content about water, especially the deepest corners of the oceans. Sat 17 Sept, 17:45 - 18:30, Little Devil
Preliminary Saturation is an improv, droning and noisy duo from the Netherlands with two members who are also known for their solo work as Franz Fjodor and Staplerfahrer. But once in a while they get together for a little bit of smoke, wine and a whole lot of improvisation music! ► Noise Vault, The Fri 16 Sept, 21:30 - 22:00, Koen's Workspace

PROCESS REBEL (US)
Ambient, Experimental, Folk From the Morc label comes this one man ambient project. If you love Jefre CantuLedesma’s music but think he should have left his distortion pedals at home during Incubated, Plinth should be right up your alley! Mellow guitar picking, guided by an atmospheric background of classical and ambient soundscapes. ► Morc Presents Fri 16 Sept, 20:00 - 20:45, NS16
Process Rebel is actually from America but currently lives in Amsterdam, where he’s working hard on his debut album. But in the past he already made countless appearances on releases and worked together with the likes of Dub Gabriel (Incubate 2010), Mc Zulu and Dr. Israel. His music is very very dubby dubstep with reggae influences. Kind of like The Bug on a well spent afternoon in a coffeeshop. ► Global Mashups Sat 17 Sept, 00:00 - 01:00, 013 Stage01
POLLUTIVE STATIC (UK)
PUZZLE MUTESON (UK)
Another brutal harsh project from the UK; Pollutive Static is the brainchild of Hal Hutchinson and is, according to him dedicated to all forms of noise pollution. We guess he just means not to forget your earplugs. ► Noise Vault, The Sat 17 Sept, 22:15 - 22:45, Koen's Workspace
Puzzle Muteson is a British songwriter who sings along to his own charismatic folk songs while playing on his finger picked guitar. Puzzle recently recorded his debut album with labelmates Nico Muhly and Valgeir Sigurðsson in Iceland. Muteson is one of the artists from the highly acclaimed Bedroom Community stable, which also happens to be the home of Incubate 2011 artist Sam Amidon. Thu 15 Sept, 20:00 - 20:45, Paradox
QUEERS, THE (US)
RANDY BARRACUDA (FIN)
Keeping punk alive since 1982, The Queers are a long lasting American punk band. Despite many member changes except for singer/ guitarist Joe Queer, The Queers has always been about catchy, sing-a-long friendly pop punk. Of course with lyrical themes that include girls, alcohol and parties. Expect to hear covers from some of their main influences like The Beach Boys, Ramones or The Undertones as well. Sun 18 Sept, 20:15 - 21:00, 013 Stage01
Skweeeeeeeee. Finnish skweee brought to the swampy Netherlands by Randy Barracuda himself. He has been running the Harmönia label with a couple of associates for years now, bringing us diverse skweee artists from around the globe. He will now do the musical talking himself during this Global Mash-up duel. ► Global Mashups Fri 16 Sept, 00:45 - 01:45, 013 Stage01
RATS ON RAFTS (NL) Post-punk
The roots of Rats on Rafts lay in the old Rotterdam pop and wave scene. After endless rehearsals, the band was invited to support Jay Reatard during two of his Dutch tours. In 2008, the band self-released their first EP. Now, they signed with our good friends of Subroutine Records who will release their first full-length somewhere around the Incubate festival. ► Subroutine Cares Sun 18 Sept, 19:45 - 20:30, Kafee 't Buitenbeentje
▲ RAINBOW ARABIA (US) Electronic, Psychedelic, Experimental
Don’t be fooled by their recent signing to the minimal/techno label Kompakt, Rainbow Arabia are a completely different cup of tea! This husband and wife duo makes lo-fi electronic synth pop on very tribal rhythms that give them a Middle Eastern and extremely groovy feel. Add some psychedelic sounds to this and you get the picture. Catchy, uplifting and drifting as the rest of the label’s roster! Tue 13 Sept, 20:00 - 21:00, Paradox
Contemporary composed Vincent van Amsterdam (accordion) en Eva Gemeinhardt (recorder) have been a duo since 2010. Their repertoire includes compositions from the Middle Ages to the twenty-first century. The program includes works by Keiko Harada and Tomi Räisänen. ► Redecorators Tue 13 Sept, 19:30 - 20:00, FAXX Building
RICHIE DAGGER (NL)
With the Redecorators project, composed music also gets a place at Incubate. Every day, amateurs and professionals will play on an unusual location in the city during the festival. Talented young musicians will play music by composers such as Keiko Harada and Iannis Xenakis, but also medieval music will be played. A relaxed atmosphere in an unusual place with new music
Richie Dagger is actually Restless Youth minus bass player, but with Giel from the recently deceased Hooghwater on bass. Bringing back the rock in punk rock! ► Hollandse Nieuwe Mon 12 Sept, 20:15 - 21:00, Cul de Sac
Folk, Slowcore, Sadcore 12-17 Sept, FAXX building Although over a dozen musicians (Alan Sparhawk, Jarboe) have been working on either albums or live-performances, please don’t let there be any misunderstanding: Nathan Amundson is Rivulets. Born in Denver, CO and grown up in Alaska, Amundson started Rivulets in 1999. Be prepared for lyrics full of doubt and worry.

RONALD DIAZ (GUA) House
House, Techno, Electronic
Next to Shawn Reynaldo we’d like to introduce another member of the XLR8R crew; Rem Koolhaus! Besides being the creative director of XLR8R, he also plays out often as DJ ever since his years as a teenager. His style? Grooving house music and loads of uk funky bassline tracks by the likes of Julio Bashmore, Girl Unit and many more! He’ll be warming up the venue on the Sunday, in style! ► XLR8R in residence Sun 18 Sept, 16:00 - 17:30, Midi Theater
Ronald Diaz is a dj from Guatemala who started developing his dj skills at the young age of just 13 years old. He is influenced by dj’s/producers like Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano, blending minimal techno with Latin American and African percussives. Diaz likes to call this “Afro-Techno” himself and is not afraid to let the ground shake during his Incubate 2011 performance! ► Global Mashups Fri 16 Sept, 01:45 - 02:45, 013 Stage01
REM KOOLHAUS (US)
SAFARI PARK (UK)
One of the most promising indie rock bands at the moment is not coming from the UK or America for a change! Rubik from Finland is a combination between Modest Mouse and The Format with Sigur Rós atmospheres. Original and complex music, very hooky and melancholic with a cold Finnish breeze floating throughout their records. Prog together with serious indie rock. Stuff to dance to... Sun 18 Sept, 19:30 - 20:15, 013 Kleine Zaal
“Fuzzy indie pop about beaches, piers, lost love and Calypso lollies.” That’s how this band describes themselves. Hailing from the south of England, Safari Park features members from Skitanja (who played at Incubate 2010) and who are more than happy to return to Tilburg again with their next project. The music they produce with Safari Park is also described as noise-influenced indie pop. Sat 17 Sept, 22:30 - 23:15, Weemoed
Indie, Noise pop,Lo-fi
SAM AMIDON (US)
Folk, Americana, Acoustic
RUN WITH THE HUNTED (US) Hardcore
Run With The Hunted is named after a collection of poems from Charles Bukowski. When it comes to the music itself think a combination of Shai Hulud, Every Time I Die, American Nightmare and Botch. While sometimes being fast and furious and on the other hand slow and brutal, Run With The Hunted would love to see you up front, in the pit of course! Sat 17 Sept, 18:30 - 19:00, Hall of Fame
Sam Amidon turns old Irish and Appalachian songs into new ones, keeping the lyrics and melodies intact but adding new chords and rhythms. These songs lean towards Nick Drake sometimes. With minimalistic percussions and orchestral guidance throughout his songs, you think you’ve got something really authentic here. Yet at that point Sam suddenly surprises with an R. Kelly cover completely turned inside out! Thu 15 Sept, 21:15 - 22:00, Paradox
SANTIAGO LASCURAIN (NL) Contemporary composed, Guitar
Santiago Lascurain is a classically trained guitarist who recently graduated from the Conservatory in The Hague. Santiago is also a part of Modelo62, a young ensemble of musicians with a passion for contemporary music. ► Redecorators Thu 15 Sept, 19:30 - 20:00, FAXX Building

SHAWN REYNALDO (US)
This crazy German duo performs short and razor sharp songs, in a very jazzy mathrock way with mostly instrumental parts and drum rhythm mayhem. Think Knalpot (Incubate 2009) going insane. Not much can be found about this band, except for the same line popping up everywhere; “Smash the drumbucket-afro kit and play the guitar. 5 days in the boomy room... with my favorite pet.” Sun 18 Sept, 15:30 - 16:00, Sounds
No wonder we invited Shawn Reynaldo and crew from XLR8R to curate the Midi Theater at Incubate 2011! By looking at Shawn’s past recommended artists on the XLR8R blog, artist names from previous Incubate editions such as Raffertie, Schlachthofbronx, Kap Bambino and Munchi pop up. As a DJ, Shawn combines the hottest beats within dubstep, garage and house at the moment. Time to get moving! ► XLR8R in residence Sat 17 Sept, 20:00 - 21:00, Midi Theater

SHOW IS THE RAINBOW, THE (US) Electronic, Experimental
We won’t have to scrub the dancefloor anymore after The Show Is The Rainbow, as mastermind and only member of the “band” Darren Keen will mostly be positioned lying on the floor during his performance. He is known for performing his songs mostly in the middle of the crowd and everyone may join him! His music style? Something like electronicndiesynthpsychedelicidmhop. Sat 17 Sept, 20:45 - 21:30, Kafee 't Buitenbeentje
▲ SCREAMING FEMALES (US) Punk rock, Indie, Garage rock
We’ve booked every man’s nightmare at Incubate 2011; Screaming Females. Yet in this case it means one of New Jersey’s finest punk rock bands at the moment. Don’t expect any screaming either, because frontwoman Melissa ‘s vocals are as catchy as can be! This combined with smoking guitar solos, weighty bass loops and tons of energy forms Screaming Females. Be prepared for a punk rock party, Jersey style! Thu 15 Sept, 23:30 - 00:30, Cul de Sac
SILKIE (UK) Dubstep
According to Boomkat, Silkie is one of those dubstep artists who maintain the original, deep and heavy dubstep sounds while hovering on the edges and never fully integrate in the scene. We couldn’t agree more! His techno synth driven, soulful, deep dubstep basslines eventually brought him to Mala’s (Digital Mystikz) Deep Medi Musik label and of course to Tilburg! ► Global Mashups Sat 17 Sept, 01:00 - 02:00, 013 Stage01
SJ ESAU (UK)
SPILT MILK (NL)
SJ Esau is the project of Sam Wisternoff who was first signed to a label at the age of 10. The output is a mix of pop/folk which sometimes burst out in chaotic noises, being backed by the vocals of Portishead’s Charlotte Nichols. With a dose of humor (like backing vocals by his two cats) and rich influences from UK’s underground hip-hop/trip-hop scene, SJ Esau adds something brand new to modern pop music. Fri 16 Sept, 21:30 - 22:15, Cul de Sac
Two-chords-free-folk-drone-boogie. That’s one description of Spilt Milk’s music. Its repertoire (adaptations of dead American poets like Robert Frost, William Carlos Williams and Wallace Stevens) was played many times in living rooms. Like Haron & Nienke’s, after which their first tape sold out very rapidly. Now Spilt Milk plays at Incubate’s own living room: Buitenbeentje! ► Subroutine Cares Sun 18 Sept, 17:15 - 18:00, Kafee 't Buitenbeentje

SLEEP PARTY PEOPLE (DK)
STALAG 17 (UK)
Shoegaze, Indie, Dream pop
Anarcho punk Sleep Party People - the bedroom project of Brian Batz - is like one of those fairy tale gems that keep radiating magical colors when it’s dark and that actually grow bigger and brighter when nighttime falls. It's something special. An old drum machine, a piano and a guitar, make a dreamlike universe arise. With traces of shoegaze, mystique and idiosyncrasy the result is hard to define. Luckily. Wed 14 Sept, 20:00 - 21:00, Paradox
SPACE DIMENSION CONTROLLER (UK)
Formed in Belfast around 1980 and were around until 1987. In 2010 the band reformed to play Steve Ignorant's Belfast gig as part of the Last Supper tour. Stalag 17 play politically inspired punk rock and comprises original members Petesy (lead vocals and guitar) and Mickey (drums) with Joe (bass) who joined a bit later. ► Steve Ignorant in residence Sat 17 Sept, 20:00 - 20:45, V39
STEPHAN MATHIEU AND JOZEF VAN WISSEM (DE)
Techno, House, Electronic
Under the moniker of Consort Spectrale, three lute musicians will celebrate one of the most important composers of the renaissance era, Josquin des Prez, who died 490 years ago. The lute-trio consists of Che Chen, Robbie Lee and Jozef van Wissem, also playing violin, recorder and portative organ. Stephan Matieu from ambient project Main (also playing on Sunday) will accompany them on cymbals and authentic virginals! Sun 18 Sept, 15:00 - 15:45, Pauluskerk
Don’t be fooled by the roots of this young Irish producer. Space Dimension Controller is one of those producers who sounds like he’s coming straight from Detroit. Deep, melodic and extremely soulful techno and house also dubbed “Galactic Funk”. No wonder Space Dimension has a solo releases on the legendary R&S label (James Blake). We think he’ll bring some good reasons to party tonight. ► XLR8R in residence Sun 18 Sept, 17:30 - 19:00, Midi Theater
STEVE IGNORANT IN RESIDENCE
STEVE RUTTA / X PLASTAZ (TA)
Steve Ignorant curates three days in the V39 venue and has invited artists based on his vision on independent culture in 2011. Steve Ignorant’s punk band Crass was one of the driving forces of the DIY movement, and therefore a major influence on the punk movement. Crass was one of the first artists to arrange their record sales and concerts without interference from the music industry, also known as DIY (do it yourself). Because of their radical views on the meat producing industry, vegetarian ideas were quickly known amongst a wider public.
Steve Rutta performed at a festival in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) for the first time in 1999, while he was still looking like a six year old kid. Yet his rhymes made an amazing impression which eventually even brings him to Tilburg for the first time! He will be joined by X Plastaz, a group from the same country, blending traditional Masaai music and clothing with modern hip-hop. ►Global Mashups Fri 16 Sept, 00:45 - 01:45, 013 Stage01

Ignorant co-founded the anarcho-punk band Crass with Penny Rimbaud in 1977. Carol Hodge is a singer, pianist and songwriter that has been singing in rock and punk bands since the age of 15. Pete Wilson is a guitarist, bassist and singer from Manchester. ►Steve Ignorant in residence Sun 18 Sept, 16:00 - 16:45, V39

Subroutine is a label with roots in the independent scene of Groningen and has a deep love for nineties indie bands.

TALKING TO TURTLES (DE)
Sump is raw, noisy black metal with a punk vibe from the UK. A bit like Darkthrone and with only a drummer, guitarist and primitive rocking black metal music, made to be played in dark basements. That’s how we like it! ► Noise Vault, The Sat 17 Sept, 20:00 - 20:30, Koen's Workspace
Talking to Turtles is Florian Sivers and Claudia Göhler, a duo from Leipzig. After recording its debut album ‘Monologue’ in a friend’s living room in Berlin the duo embarked on a tour supporting Angus and Julia Stone. Using nothing more than their voices and guitars live, SIvers and Göhler’s music can be described as warm and emotional acoustic songs, dipped in a melancholic sauce.

TERRACOTA GATE (DK) Ambient, Synth
Sylvain Chauveau is a well known French contemporary classical artist, known for his diverse solo work as well as soundtracks for Sebastien Betbeder films and his other bands Arca, 0 and On. He is mostly known for his work on the piano but will present a special new set at Incubate with acoustic guitar, laptop and vocals. Don’t miss out on this! Thu 15 Sept, 22:30 - 23:30, Paradox
T.S. ELIOT APPRECIATION SOCIETY, THE (NL) Indie
The T.S. Eliot Appreciation Society is the alias of Tom Gerritsen, a new rising star from Utrecht who plays breathtaking acoustic folk/ alt-country songs. We appreciate! ► Hollandse Nieuwe Tue 13 Sept, 20:15 - 21:00, Cul de Sac
TERZIJ DE HORDE (NL) Experimental, Black metal
I see my metal and I want to paint it black. Terzij de Horde is an amazing black metal addition from our very own Dutch soil! By merging elements from black, post rock, doom and screamo, Terzij de Horde sounds somewhere in between Altar of Plagues (Incubate 2009) and Celeste. It will leave the corpse paint at home, as always, but that does not affect the highly intense and atmospheric performance. Sat 17 Sept, 18:30 - 19:15, 013 Stage01
▲ SYLVAIN CHAUVEAU (FR) Post-classical, Ambient
Jonas Frederiksen, keyboardplayer and manager for Girlseeker, his solo project Terracota Gate is the ultimate soundtrack for your downer parties, blending casio samples, ambient and 80s film muzak in a delayed dimension. ► Kraak in residence Sat 17 Sept, 16:00 - 16:30, NS16
THIS ROUTINE IS HELL (NL) Hardcore
Fast, furious and short, that’s what sums up This Routine Is Hell! Remember Paint it Black at ZXZW in 2008? Alongside Minor Threat one of the biggest influences on this young band from Utrecht. The combination between these two results in something dangerous. A heavy piece of hardcore punk, which can also be compared with the likes of Ceremony; mean, nasty, short and pile-up friendly! Sat 17 Sept, 16:30 - 17:00, Hall of Fame
Inspired by the likes of Miles Davis and Nina Simone he grew up in Chicago, before moving to Detroit to become one of the pioneers within the techno and house scene. Parrish’ music is not just straight forward. By re-editing old disco, funk and soul records, he adds some serious groove to his records. If you’re a fan deep Detroit techno like Carl Craig, Stacy Pullen and Juan Atkins, come see this legendary DJ. ► XLR8R in residence Sat 17 Sept, 02:00 - 03:00, Midi Theater
THIS FRONTIER NEEDS HEROES (US) Folk, Singer-songwriter
This Frontier Needs Heroes is a brother/sister duo from Brooklyn and we think we’ve found some new folk/singer-songwriter heroes right here! Traditional folky acoustic guitar playing, minimalistic percussions and dual singing with some hints of alt-country, think of Belgian band The Bony King of Nowhere. The ultimate soundtrack to a sunrise in your backyard to wash away a hangover. Fri 16 Sept, 20:30 - 21:15, Pauluskerk
THOUGHT FORMS (UK)
Noise rock, Psychedelic, Post-rock Perhaps you’ve seen this name shining on the bill with last Portishead tour, or maybe you’ve seen them at Cul de Sac before. Or perhaps you didn’t. Either way, Thought Forms combine post rock, shoegaze and psychedelic rock, mostly instrumental but with the rare, yet effective use of vocals from time to time. Think early Mogwai records. Thought Forms are known for improvising at their live performances! Fri 16 Sept, 20:00 - 20:45, Cul de Sac
TOUCHY MOB (DE) Folk, Electronic
Strangely enough, Touchy Mob didn’t perform in the Netherlands thus far, but will soon be a well requested performer if you ask us! Berlin’s Ludwig Plath is known for his remixes and covers of acts like Bear in Heaven, Au, Kyst (which he also plays in) and Caribou and his own music sounds like something in between these acts. “Folk techno” as he selfdescribes his music. Diversity is the key here. Sat 17 Sept, 21:15 - 22:00, Weemoed

That pretty much sums up what a Trial show is all about, nest to the strong political message in the music. Trial followed in the footsteps of Youth of Today and Gorilla Biscuits, in a second wave of straight edge hardcore. Called it quits in 2000 but recently back in action and now for the first time in the Netherlands! Sat 17 Sept, 23:30 - 00:15, Hall of Fame

True Champions Ride On Speed is an instrumental trio from Belgium that released their self-titled debut EP last year. Combine weird song structures with dissonant sounds, throw some heavy guitar riffs in the mix and you’ve got True Champions Ride On Speed. Its complex guitar-based experimental style reminds a little bit of Battles, but then heavier. A little bit like Battles who ride on speed, perhaps? Sat 17 Sept, 14:30 - 15:00, Sounds

TWEAK BIRD (US)
Psychedelic, Stoner rock The stoner aficionados will be pleased with this one! Formed by the two Bird brothers (hence the name?), Tweak Bird already toured with Tool and were picked by Melvins for their curated ATP. The last one is clearly the main influence for their psychedelic stoner rock jams, although it has some references to Black Sabbath and King Crimson oldies as well. Tue 13 Sept, 23:30 - 00:30, Cul de Sac
Dubstep, Electronic Even though Untold only released his first record in 2008, his biography is pretty impressive to say at least. No wonder BBC’s Mary Anne Hobbs called him “one to watch” back in 2009. He played all over the world and released records on big labels such as Hotflush and Hessle Audio. While his records contain deep and atmospheric dubstep, don’t look surprised when some cumbia dancefloor beats come along. ► XLR8R in residence Fri 16 Sept, 01:00 - 02:00, Midi Theater
Since 2007 the uiuiui koo ensemble combined several musical and artistic traditions to create its own sound and imagery. With a backdrop by Marielle Verdijk and suits from a fictional era, uiuiui koo creates a somewhat absurd atmosphere. The result sounds like baroque music from a shortwave radio, or as Delia Derbyshire from Radiophonic Workshop BBC said: "looking for Schubert in a forgotten future." ► Redecorators Mon 12 Sept, 19:30 - 20:00, FAXX Building
UNHOLY ANALOG NOISEMACHINE (BE)
Ambient, Psychedelic Vakantie from Groningen is giving our biography writers a damn hard time to find (translated, the band name means "Holiday"), but when finally coming across a Soundcloud page, their mix of ambient and psychedelic certainly triggered our curiosity. ► Hollandse Nieuwe Wed 14 Sept, 21:45 - 22:30, Cul de Sac

Unholy Analog Noisemachine, or UxAxNx is no stranger in the noise scene. The Belgian artist is known for his harsh synth driven sounds with industrial soundscapes and videogame samples.

▲ UIUIUI KOO (NL) Contemporary composed
Seth Kasselman is the man behind this project. He always picks out different musicians to accompany his glamfolk inspired jams, in which pop music and improv are blended like a strong bloody mary. For his live debut in Europe Kesselman is doing it all by himself. With a castrato voice, a free approach to the clarinet and a love for everything droning he breaks all frameworks of contemporary pop. ► Kraak in residence Sat 17 Sept, 20:00 - 20:45, NS16
WILL SAMSON (UK) Ambient, Folk
After a 4-month journey across Asia and the Himalaya, Will Samson returned to his mother land, to begin translating his experiences into music. That became thewellknown album ‘Never Give Up’. Whereas that album has more of a post-rock feel, the new album ‘Hello Friends, Goodbye Friends’ leans more towards mellow, atmospheric driven folk. Any association to Bon Iver’s music goes without saying. ► Morc Presents Fri 16 Sept, 22:30 - 23:15, NS16
▲ WAR ON DRUGS, THE (US) Indie, Folk, Psychedelic Kurt Vile leaving the band after the debut album to pursue his solo career didn’t stop The War on Drugs from growing to be one of the most interesting bands around. They sound like they're influenced by raids in the local second hand record stores for old Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen vinyl, while on the other hand spending long nights listening to Animal Collective, tipsy on red wine. Mon 12 Sept, 21:45 - 22:30, Paradox
WHEELS ON FIRE (US) Garage rock, Indie, Surf
If you’re looking for some no-nonsense garage rock, Wheels on Fire should be right up your alley. The four piece is rocking like it’s the late 60’s again with energetic, organ-driven garage blues rock ‘n roll, mixing The Stooges with Elvis Costello. The dirty dual guitar riffs from last year’s album ‘Liar Liar’ crack through your speakers and make you even forget they don’t have a bass player. Catchy as hell! Sun 18 Sept, 17:15 - 18:00, Cul de Sac
WOODEN SHJIPS (US) Psychedelic, Kraut, Rock
When we made Circle and Black Mountain jam together at Incubate last year, it resulted in Wooden Shjips. Nah, Just kidding! But that would come pretty close to describing their sound. Long psychedelic jams with echoing vocals, stoner bass and warm organ sound, not afraid of adding something extra (a “j” for instance). WIth their psychedelic rock roots from San Francisco and hints of krautrock, Wooden Shjips’ performance with videoartist Wineke Gartz will undoubtedly result in a natural hallucinogenic high! ► Wineke works with Wooden Shjips Sat 17 Sept, 22:00 - 00:00, FAXX Building
XLR8R IN RESIDENCE Electronic, House
Over the course of the Incubate Festival weekend, leading American electronic music publication XLR8R will take over the night. Incubate has invited XLR8R to curate three days of cutting-edge electronic music in the Midi Theater!
After the grindcore beast Insect Warfare played their last shows in 2009, it was time for a new band to fill their shoes. All the way from Singapore, Wormrot is working their way up fast. This three-piece brings a truck load of short, crushing and drumkit bashing grindcore with a huge love for old thrash and punk records. The new record is getting raving reviews from gutters all over the planet. Sat 17 Sept, 00:00 - 00:45, Little Devil
WOUD (NL) Ambient
We can’t deny it, we’re a huge fan of bands coming from the Bonne Aparte/Adept/Eklin camp!Woud is a project by Wouter Venema and Keimpe Koldijk from these bands we just named, but this time making exciting, experimental sinister ambient music. ► Hollandse Nieuwe Wed 14 Sept, 20:15 - 21:00, Cul de Sac

▼ YOB (US) Doom, Sludge
We could spend a festival guide full of how awesome YOB was at Roadburn 2010, but we won’t. Don’t be fooled by the fact that YOB only exists of three band members (and letters), if this band won’t blow you off your socks, there’s only one explanation; you’re not there. The long tracks burst with echoing clean vocals soaked in fuzzy drone bass lines towards hypnosis. Don’t forget your earplugs. Don’t. Fri 16 Sept, 02:00 - 03:00, 013 Kleine Zaal
Zuur79 is a live acid/tek improv group. Every show is different, so get your 303 kicks on and get hazed by a shower of old school acid! Sat 17 Sept, 00:00 - 01:00, Midi bar area

ZACHARY CALE (US)
We can’t guarantee a campfire and a bottle of single malt scotch, but we can guarantee a breathtaking show by Zachary Cale. This young artist has been working his way up since 2003 making moody folk songs with hints to country and blues. With shuffling druming, mellow guitar picking and Cale’s beautiful voice that compares to Leonard Cohen, Townes van Zandt, Bob Dylan and every synonym of the word awesome.

EAT-IN An Eat-In is a food party. The idea is to bring home-cooked food with at least one of the ingredients being organic and consume it all together. So bring: Apple-pie with apples from your grandma's garden, salad with vegetables from the nearest organic farmer, herbs from your own garden, organic meat to prepare on the big barbecue... Everything's possible, as long as it's good and honest.
