RE/FORM Festival has announced its Phase 1 lineup for Spring 2022 on April 2nd, expanding to 5 rooms of Techno, House and Experimental.
With this year’s return RE/FORM establishes a bi-annual cadence for its programming: its annual Spring edition will take place the first weekend of April, while its Summer edition will remain on Labor Day Weekend as has been the case in 2019 and 2021.
Presented by 6AM Group, Synthetik Minds and Dirty Epic, RE/FORM is a day-into-night event concept that aims to showcase and elevate the presence of cutting-edge electronic music in Los Angeles, with a focus on quality Techno, Experimental and House.
Following from its incredibly successful 2021 experience, RE/FORM Spring 2022 will once more be taking over the bustling and historic bi-level Catch One venue, this time expanding to a total of 5 rooms of music.
Attendees with a discerning taste for techno will experience headlining performances from UK techno powerhouse Dax J, masked enigmatic figure SNTS, Chicago Ghetto House pioneer DJ Deeon, Texas-bred priestess of hard techno Sara Landry, Ukrainian-based selector Daria Kolosova and established American techno producer and DJ Brennen Grey.
Joining them on the Phase 1 lineup are a selection of Los Angeles’ most talented Techno and House artists: rising talent CLAWZ, Singularity co-founder Eric Sedano, Black Lodge resident Force Placement, 6AM regular Jonny Maven, House star Juliet Mendoza, Understated co-head-honcho Monsieur Frazier, WORK resident Stephen Disario and Operandi artist Timekube.
Following 2021’s incredible showcase, RE/FORM joins forces with Moe Espinosa aka Drumcell once again, collaborating with his experimental BLK_NOISE imprint for another fully-fledged Live showcase, lineup for which will be announced as part of Phase 2.
Further, RE/FORM has invited Los Angeles record label and collective Understated to this year’s Spring Edition, adding a full stage dedicated to House Music for the occasion.
RE/FORM will be bringing the Discovery Stage back for the second year in a row, continuing with its mission to showcase rising artists who have put in great work right here at home in LA. As part of the initiative, RE/FORM will be running another competition to unearth fresh talent in the city, promising a DJ performance at RE/FORM Spring 2022 to a deserving talented winner.
REFORM launched in 2019 with performances by Robert Hood, Insolate, DJ Hyperactive and Annika Wolfe playing REFORM by Day, while Perc, Adam X, Dimi Angelis and EAS brought harder techno sounds to the REFORM by Night programming.
Forced to skip 2020 due to COVID, RE/FORM made its comeback on Labor Day Weekend 2021 with a lineup featuring a diverse array of Techno and House acts from North America.
RE/FORM’s 2021 edition featured performances by DVS1, Danny Tenaglia, Headless Horseman, Josh Wink, Rrose, Truncate b2b DJ Hyperactive, Lauren Flax and an entire room of experimental music curated by BLK_NOISE, the label founded by Drumcell and Surachai.
