Electric Indigo is a veteran DJ and activist whose two-decade-long production career has arced from techno to electro-acoustic and multi-channel sound works. Her female:pressure project – an international network for female-identifying artists – aims to increase visibility of women working in the field of electronic music, and earned her an Honorary Mention at the prestigious Prix Ars Electronica 2009.

Later in the day, she returns to the stage with experimental live set at Globus Main Hall, presented alongside works from Moscow's Buttechno and raster-noton co-founder Byetone.
