2019 FESTIVAL THEME

Tricksters, Magicians & Oracles

Every year, Indian Summer Festival works to an exciting and provocative theme. This year it is ‘Tricksters, Magicians and Oracles’. Tricksters exist in every culture – they are quick, brilliant, and play tricks with our senses. We give them the right to offend, and in exchange, they give us new perspectives. Magicians conjure up, out of nothing, beautiful works of art, or new realities to reach for. Oracles light the path towards futures unknown to us, but that they have already envisioned.

What we need more than ever in the world today is a way out of the tumult that seems to surround us. For our ninth edition, we’ve invited an incredible range of artists who do that, and who are either tricksters, magicians or oracles in their own way. Our roster this year includes some of the most influential artists in the world. From Grammy award-winning classical guitarists to genre-bending DJs, razor sharp comedians, and award-winning novelists this year’s programming spans literary dialogues, debates, performance art, musical collaborations, interactive public art, and culinary experiences.

And the festival, as always, is a model for what the world could look like, if we came together with all the power of human diversity, innovation, creativity and wisdom. Join us.
