Rumors and whispers of Kinetik 2012 are starting. It sounds promising that one of the largest industrial/EBM/electro/noise music festivals in North America (held in Montreal, Canada) will be happening again for a 5th year, most likely in May the weekend of Canada’s Victoria Day holiday. For the 2011 edition they moved the venue from Usine C to Metropolis (with one day at Club Soda). The general consensus of attendees during the festival was that the move was a good one. Kinetik Festival 2011 was a great time for us, Auxiliary Magazine had a vendor table, the bands playing put on impressive performances, and we loved the new venue. Enjoy some photos from this year’s event and keep hopeful and your ears open that 2012 will be a go.
