C2C Festival has announced its initial lineup and plans for the event's 20th anniversary edition, which will take place in the Italian city of Turin, running 3rd - 6th November 2022.
Bicep (pictured), aya, Pa Salieu, Nala Sinephro, Makaya McCraven, Jockstrap, Lyra Pramuk, and YEИDRY are among the names set to play the four-day showcase for the first time. Meanwhile, Autechre, Arca, Jamie XX and Caribou have all been confirmed as artists returning after performing at previous editions.
Founded in 2002 as Club To Club, nodding to the event taking over multiple venues across Torino, by 2019 the annual fixture had swelled to welcome 30,000 attendees from more than 45 countries, with a focus on contemporary experimental and electronic music. During the pandemic, the name switched to C0C 'The Festival As Performance', with 'zero' a reference to how uncertain times catalysed a new start for all involved.
Tickets are on sale now for this year's instalment, which promises to combine rap, jazz, R&B, rock, and more, offering a broad, forward-thinking bill in a variety of locations across the city. These include the iconic OGR, a late-19th Century locomotive factory and warehouse since transformed into a tech and startup hub, and the huge Lingotto, where automotive giant Fiat produced cars until 1982.
