If you can’t wait for the Network Music Festival to start, we have good news: our online exhibition is now live with 7 video works, installations and interactive apps to keep you busy until we launch the festival on Wednesday! live.networkmusicfestival.org/

The exhibition contemplates how we make music, interact and connect via web technologies. We are hosting a walk-through event and Q+A with the artists on Wednesday, hosted by media-artist @BChicau@twitter.com. So take a look at the works and get your questions ready!

Our exhibition is free to view, but we are accepting donations to contribute to artist fees on a Pay What You Can basis. Through this form of mutual aid we can support each other through the exchange of culture, knowledge and funding. networkmusicfestival.org/donat

When we say we are a mutual aid event, what we mean is that 100% of the money we get via the donate link will be shared out with artists.
All of our events are streamed online and free to tune in to, but we're asking people whoa re in work (or who have institutional support to attend conferences and festivals) to please donate to help support our artists.

Covid has hit live music hard and this is an event by and for artists to support our community and showcase the community-building potential and accessibility of music shared via the internet.

Please tune in and please give if you can! Get an early bird ticket now!

Where from in Europe can I order an USB foot pedal (1-3 pedals) so that shipping doesn't cost more than the pedal itself?

PCsensor has a very nice 3-pedal device, at a reasonable price, but $39 shipping for a $25 item is a bit much for my wallet right now.

My budget is around 30-40USD total.

Boosts welcome!
