IRTIJAL 2018 at Zoukak Studio
18th International Festival for Experimental Music in Lebanon
05 – 06 April 2018 at Zoukak Studio, Beirut
For its 18th edition, the International Festival for Experimental Music in Lebanon, IRTIJAL, will be held at Zoukak Studio, Beirut Art Center and Metro al Madina. For the first time in its long history, Irtijal will take place in two separate installments: the festival’s 18th edition consists of a two-fold program that pays homage to the purest expression of experimental music on the one hand, while showcasing tumultuous rock alternatives on the other.
On the 5th and 6th of April, Zoukak Studio will host a jam-packed line-up that includes Lebanese post-rock quartet Ilvy, French free-rock collective Oiseaux-tempête, Belgian-Lebanese duo Tasjeel Moujahed, renowned experimental guitarist Hans Tammen, Lebanese post-rock sextet Kozo, Khyam Allami, blending a traditional Arabic repertoire with contemporary composition, and Karkhana, a collective of artists from Cairo, Istanbul and Lebanon. DJ sets by Rabih Beaini, Ziad Nawfal and Essabagh will follow.
Concerts start at 8.30p.m. Tickets available through Ihjoz, and at the door.
Irtijal ticket price: 25,000 L.L / Festival Pass: 70,000 L.L
