Ableton's LOOP summit has announced the first names for its yearly creative gathering, this time taking place in LA over Berlin. Having impressed in 2017, Ableton decided to move the summit to the West Coast, and the first wave of names invovled have now been confirmed.
Ableton's LOOP summit has opened its registration for those wishing to attend the 2018 edition. Having taken place in Berlin since its inception in 2015, the German DAW dudes announced earlier this year they are bringing the event to LA. Featuring talks, workshops, panels and demos, LOOP is an opportunity to meet other Ableton heads, hear from those using the software in innovative ways and try out the latest kit pushing music-making forward.
Ableton are moving their popular summit Loop to LA for 2018. Taking place from 9th November to 11th November, the event - previously taking place in Berlin’s Funkhaus - will now happen in Los Angeles, where Ableton have a budding community of passionate users. LA’s Ableton groups were highlighted in a short video a few years back so it makes sense they’ve shifted their focus to the West Coast.
There are no speakers or events announced as yet, but we’ll update you with the programme once it’s announced.
Ableton have been long-time supports of the creative arts. While their flagship software Live is predominantly a music-making tool, many users have re-imagined what the DAW can do with everything from art installations, VJs, live bands and even running PacMan inside Max for Live.
Ahead of the full program announcement later this month, Ableton has revealed first names who will be shaping the third instalment of its popular music summit, Loop, which is aimed at producers, thinkers, educators and creative technologists.
This year's Loop summit will include genre-bending producer of the moment, Jlin, tape-destroying ambient hero William Basinski and New York clubbing collective Discwoman.
Ableton’s Loop Summit for music-makers is back for its third year from 10th through 12th November 2017 at Funkhaus Berlin.
As per last year, Loop will be back at the amazing Funkhaus venue, built in the '50s as the broadcast headquarters for the GDR’s state radio.
Registration for tickets is open to interested parties now with student ticketing and subsidised ticketing available.
