Why settle for just one form of artistic expression when you can have two? MIRA Digital Arts Festival, happening at Fabra i Coats in Barcelona this November from 10 to 12, brings together the best electronic music and live visuals to create a unique festival experience.
Started in 2011 and happening annually in both Barcelona and Berlin, MIRA was able to become, in just five years, a true household name in the worldwide digital arts calendar. More than an event, it has become a place where creative minds come together to reach new heights. In addition to immersive audiovisual concerts, it will feature art installations and conferences dedicated to the digital arts.
