Announcement regarding the venue selected to receive Kinetik Festival 2013.
It is with pleasure that we announce the place we have chosen to receive the 2013 edition of the Kinetik Festival 5.5.
As previously announced, the future of Kinetik in 2013 was more uncertain, and it is with enthusiasm that we present an edition a "more modest version" than in recent years. This edition will still be up to the standards of the festival, but distinct in this sense that we must deal with limited costs.
To ease the production of this event, it was decided to move the festival to a smaller setting. It is very well located and offers a variety of beverages for every budget, and will allow us to offer you a more affordable evening pricing. We have listened to you, and this is also in response to your comments that you will see the price of beers below $5.
On the capacity of the room: Please do not worry: With flexibility and safety in mind, it is crucial that our venue caters to the right size of audience. If demand exceeds the pre-sale of 550 people for the selected venue, we can relocate one or more nights, if necessary, to a larger establishment. We will adjust accordingly based on ticket sales for each evening.
Here is the room selected to receive the Kinetik Festival 2013:
4483 St-Laurent, corner Mont-Royal [web site]
Here's the official web flyer for the 2013 ''mini'' edition of the Kinetik Festival
And finally, here's the last bands addition for the Kinetik Festival 5.5:
More bands added to the 2013 line up:
Here's todays bands update:
Here's the second bands announcement for the Kinetik Festival 5.5 :)
we are pleased to announce the first bands for the 2013 edition of the Kinetik Festival:
Since we have not yet written comments following the official edition of Kinetik 2012, it is important that we take a moment to publicly thank all those who have made this year's event possible.
Thanks you to all the groups who participated in the 2012 edition, and who came from all over the world to make us all dance to that which moves us. Thank you to all the Kinetik technical staff, and the Metropolis, who, once again, made this dream possible. Thank you to the sponsors, the local team, DJ's, drivers, door staff, and volunteers who made this year another success! But most importantly, all the supporters, fans, and visitors, who, by their presence, even with economic and political uncertainty, have demonstrated their passion, enthusiasm, and spirit, and prove once again the vitality of the Electro-Industrial music in North America: Thank you all!!
Regarding the future of the Kinetik festival:
Over five years ago, the idea was born in the cold Montreal of the most extravagant festival. However, this vision has become an insane reality, and it is with pride and happiness, that we have had the opportunity to witness in concert the most active groups. Diverse hordes of fans from many genres, have rallied from a multitude of countries, led only by their passion for Electro-Industrial music.
From grumpy neighbors who did not like our music, to an outbreak of SARS, the eruption of the Eyjafjöll, to crazy taxi drivers, to the recent manifestations of unhinged student protests, it seems thateverything was in place to constantly thwart our festival. But nothing has managed to compromise the existence of Kinetik. Over the years, we have created a special friendship with many people, and we welcomed some of the nicest artists. Certainly, there has been some animosity, some inconveniences to our work, but it is nothing compared to the joys procured by the many friendships that are created during the festival. Some, after initially meeting at Kinetik, have even become engaged! It is this force, this energy, that constantly pushes us to continue what was initially a hobby, into real work.
In retrospect, we do not regret anything about these wonderful years. Admittedly, we have had financial losses, but most importantly, we have created a large and beautiful family. Thank you all who have attended these events.
Kinetik 6.0 vs. 5.5 :
Regarding the issue of Kinetik 6.0, after carefully observing our successes and our opportunities, we have decided not to do the 6.0 edition in 2013. But do not worry, this does not mean the end of the Kinetik Festival! Kinetik will be there, with a ''mini'' edition, from May 23 to 26 2013 as Kinetik Festival 5.5
As we grow from year to year, it has become increasingly difficult to produce this festival, while remaining financially viable, and this is as much for the production team, as is for the visitors. It is through many changes, and in all of our best interests, that we have made this difficult decision. More than ever, we want to attract the attention of festival goers, so that they want to continue attending these new shows, and be reunited with the Kinetik family.
So, to ensure the survival of this crazy project, we have decided to take a step back in 2013 from the ''normal'' Kinetik. Several surveys will be available shortly, and it is with your help and your respectful, constructive, comments, we will refine our approach. Kinetik is, above all, your festival! We hope you will take the time to write and respond to our surveys. We look forward to your comments and innovative ideas.
Once again, you have our gratitude and our heartfelt thanks, and we will
see you soon!
