Electronic Fusion

Chemical Brothers to play live in London's Trafalgar Square

Becks Beer and the ICA have hooked up to bring us Becks Fusions - a series of unique audio-visual events in the UK and Ireland throughout September. Conceived as a platform for audio-visual artists and live dance music alike, the two will combine in a variety of inventive ways.

Kicking off on Tuesday 4th September at London's ICA gallery, it will be displaying artists' creations before moving to the city's Trafalgar Square on the 6th September to a specially designed gallery 'pod'. But the big news for dance music fans is that on Sunday 9th September, the pod will be transformed into a special high-tech stage where the Chemical Brothers will be collaborating with acclaimed artists UVA for the first Becks Fusions multimedia show, which promises to combine the 'Brothers' block-rockin' beats with cutting edge visuals to sublime effect. Calvin Harris will also be dropping in to do his electro disco thing, with DJ support from Erol Alkan.

From there, the gallery/pod stage will go on tour, with Calvin Harris headlining dates in Dublin (Sunday 16th September), Manchester (Saturday 22nd September) and Glasgow (Saturday 29th September), and in each city he'll be supported by one of the most innovative new electronic acts - Jape, The Whip and Errors respectively. Tickets for the events are free and can be won in packs of Becks Vier or Becks, or from the site until Sunday 12th August.
