Elevate Festival 2013
When the Elevate Festival in Graz started out in 2005, only few would have foreseen a development towards one of the most prolific and interesting events of its kind worldwide. However, that’s exactly what it has become, combining political discussion with a cutting edge music programme – something you wont find elsewhere.
Elevate Festival 2013: Oct 23 – 27 in Graz
This year’s programme features a wide palette of artists such as Jon Hopkins (Domino Records, on the opening night on Wednesday) Cut Hands (Blackest Ever Black, No Wave/Industrial Floor on Friday), Dance Mania’s Lil Louis (House Floor on Saturday) alongside yet undiscovered local and international talent. Like already in the past years, the festival has invited artists to curate a stage, this year Dorian Concept (who invited, among others Daedelus from Ninja Tune) and New York’s L.I.E.S. Records (which should guarantee a wicked acid techno experience, yeah!). Furthermore, we’ve got Peverelist on the UK Bass Floor on Saturday, presenting his Livity Sounds project, drone specialists such as Pharmacon as well as Dubsquare very own Rer Repeter and Die Hand, performing on Saturday at the Dungeon and on Friday at the L.I.E.S. Tunnel respectively. Don’t sleep!
Furthermore, there will be plenty of discussions, pannels and workshops on the topic of open source, with a strong focus on the recent revelations by Edward Snowden and Wikileaks. And as far as the music talks are concerned, two discussions will also include Dubsquare, that is a discussion on Feminism and the dance music scene with Electric Indigo and DJ Marcelle on Thursday (8.15pm at the basement of the festival center at Forum Stadtpark) and a pannel on techno and politics with Move D and Tina 303 on Saturday (8.15pm same place). Tight schedule, innit? Ha!

Hence, international labels such as Planet Mu, Hyperdub, Hessle Audio or Night Slugs were featured from the very beginning, alongside local talent from Graz, Zagreb and other parts of central Europe. For the anniversary night, previous guests, fellows and friends will join in to celebrate the night, with artists such as Kode9 or Ben UFO among them.

Declaration of Support and Solidarity with the Refugees in Protest
On 24th November, a large group of refugees marched for 8 hours from Traiskirchen to Vienna to make their political demands heard. They’ve set up a protest camp at Sigmund Freud Park on the same Saturday, so as to raise their voices at the heart of the Austrian capital and finally speak for themselves.
Their initiative draws our attention to the fact that there are rampant deficiencies to the legal proceedings as well as basic provisions for people seeking Asylum in Austria. Despite their precarious status and the looming threat of deportation, the protesting refugees are fighting for their human rights – they’re standing up against intransparent legal proceedings and restrictive laws. So they put forth the following demands for dignified living conditions:
As concerning the juridicial procedure of seeking asylum, they request better qualified translators; more access to information and judicial advice in their own language; a quicker handling of their cases; the recognition of their refugee status; and the right to family reunion. They oppose transfers to remote and isolated dwellings and reject deportations generally.
Moreover, they are demanding to have access to the labour market while their court cases are ongoing.
As concerns the improvement of their basic provisions and services, they demand better access to health care; the accompanimient of translators when going to the doctor; that there be sufficient and healthy food at the camp; that there be better working conditions in Traiskirchen; that their children be allowed to visit regular Austrian schools; that they have access to modern communication technologies (Internet, international TV channels) at the camp; and that there be more opportunities for them to learn german and get professional training there.
You can sign this declaration here.
The story behind the refugee-camp and a detailed chronic of eventsis well documented at www.no-racism.net.
