The Lap Off

Sunday 28 February, 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Suitability: Adults

Free. Registration Advised.

An appropriately anarchic closing for NISF, the 8th Lap Off pits our best electronic musicians and DJs against each other in gladiatorial knock out rounds of ten minutes each and crowd reaction decides who wins. Think 8 Mile with laptops.
Contestants can use their laptop to produce noises in whatever way they like. Other instruments, peripheries, etc are limited only by the ability to channel it through their laptops, and into a left and a right channel in our mixing desk. Past contestants have been DJs, original musicians, and everything in between. Always diverse and always surprising, expect dancing, shouting and a mess of cables like you’ve never seen.
