Online program 2020

This year’s festival is different in many ways, where parts of the festival will take place on digital platforms. The online program presents artists in spaces that are, as always, meticulously chosen. But this year, there’s a whole new interconnection between time and space in the form of global concerts where musicians from the US, Australia and Europe meet in real time, where pre-recorded, concerts containing their own intrinsic spatialities, meet acoustic environments here in Gothenburg. Where the boundaries for what constitutes live music is moved into a new and unknown territory.

Welcome to the online program of the 2020 edition of the GAS-Festival!
