Nocturne is the festival's late-night programming where cutting-edge technology meets visual arts, and sound design in a setting that emphasizes the innovative fusion of electronic music and digital creativity.


Sometimes called the "hacker of techno" by the French press, NSDOC distorts the technological tools, creating the link between machines and matter. He collects living data, using his motion capture sensors on his dancing body, and interactive devices, and injects them into the rectilinear skeleton of techno to make an organic matrix. His artistic practice proposes a radical new synthesis of dance and technology, exploring mechanic hacking and creative coding. He invites the public to push back with him on the limits of the body, objects and sounds.

Salar Trio featuring Luis Resto and Pathe Jassi IR/US+US+SN/US

This unique combination of backgrounds and musical influences fuels the trio’s unique performance. Ansari’s dedication and education in the genres of house and techno take the band’s music to a specific dimension globally cherished by participants of the culture. Resto weaves through these soundscapes with vast musicality, and Jassi's pulsating bass lines and vocals add great dynamics and groove. The result is a powerful exploration of sounds that transcends genres and creates a truly immersive experience for audiences.

Mathew Jonson CA

One of a kind, Mathew Jonson has developed one of the most distinctive voices in electronic dance music. His music offers a rare fusion of populist intensities and nuanced musicality. With a keen understanding of the needs of the dance floor and the universal laws of house and techno, he’s thrown out the rule book time and time again, sneaking tricks learned from electro and even drum’n’bass into the clubs, and loading up his B-sides with tracks that do what they damned well please.
