Electronica Festival Set for September

COVENTRY is set to host its first three-day electronica arts and music festival next month.

Called A Thing About Machines, it will run from September 19 to 21, and be held in venues across the city not usually used for performances and exhibitions, such as the medieval crypt at St Mary's Guildhall and Bablake Old Boys centre in Hill Street.

Its aim is to attract people to visit who may not have gone to gigs or arts events before. The festival takes its theme from Coventry's prestigious automotive past and developing technology.
