Cathartech at The 17th Olympia Experimental Music Festival

The 17th Olympia Experimental Music Festival

Sponsored By KAOS 89.3 FM

June 10th-12th
The Northern-321 4th Ave.-Olympia
All shows start @ 7:00, $7 at door.

Now in it’s 17th year, The Olympia Experimental Music Festival has become a
fixture within the Olympia Arts & Music Community. The festival celebrates the
Pacific Northwest’s legacy of “left of center” music and audio/visual arts. It also
embraces a strong “DIY” ethic, and seeks to provide a stage for artists with similar
beliefs and practices. In the past there have been “high profile” artists within
the “experimental/avant” realm, but the festival also serves as a platform for those
who are relatively unknown within their respective genres.

And now for the line-up!

Peace is a sonic ritual performed by local artists, exploring the key of F, aligning
