by Bob Coyne Rating: Release Date:

Alfa MiTo Club to Club, a European festival dedicated to electronic music, returns to Torino, Italy from November 5 to 9, showcasing the very best in contemporary electronic music, arts and culture.

Headliners include SBTRKT, Caribou (whose new album Our Love recently broke into the UK top 10), Jungle (whose album is shortlisted for the 2014 Mercury Prize), Apparat, Chet Faker, cult Italian artist Franco Battiato, Marcel Dettmann, Pantha Du Prince, Kode9 and Laurel Halo (the latest two in the Italian exclusive of HYPERDUB 10 at Teatro Carignano).

After its London event at Village Underground, Alfa MiTo Club to Club's 14th edition, #C2C14, coincides with the week in which Torino plays host to the high profile Torino Piemonte Contemporary Arts Week. More than 35,000 people attended the previous edition.

For the sixth consecutive year, Alfa MiTo Club to Club has been chosen as the best international festival of the season by Resident Advisor, the leading online magazine for electronic music. Club to Club was the best event in its November/December Top 10, which includes renowned festivals in Australia, USA, Iceland, Argentina, Belgium and the Netherlands. According to Resident Advisor: "For one week of the year, Torino becomes Europe's most thriving hub for forward-thinking electronic sounds. This is thanks, of course, to Club to Club."

Over the course offive days, Alfa MiTo Club to Club brings together more than 100 hours of music with over 50 artists from 12 countries and 4 continents: USA, UK, Canada, Kuwait, Russia, Australia, Germany, Norway, France, Spain, Sweden, Lebanon, and Italy.

The festival aims to to celebrate creativity across contemporary electronic music and visual arts in Northern Italy’s cultural capital Torino. There will be music and culture-based meetings, workshops and presentations.
 
The festival includes A Great Symphony for Torino, in which young Italian and international producers, coordinated by a tutor such as Kode9, compose a soundtrack for the city landmarks in 'augmented reality' (agreatsymphony.net).

Other events include:
 
AbsolutSymposium - a round the clock meeting place for fans and professionals, which will present live shows, talks with artists, installations, interviews, and screenings.
 
Berlin Wall 25 - celebrating the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with a full day of activities in the San Salvario neighbourhood.
 
The Red Bull Music Academy Stage at Lingotto, on Friday November 7 and Saturday 8 will feature Ben Ufo b2b Ron Morelli (world debut), Kelela, Millie & Andrea, Fatima Al Qadiri, Jessy Lanza, Ninos Du Brasil, Jacques Greene, Kele, Tiger & Woods, Vessel, Visionist, Vaghe Stelle, Lorenzo Senni. The main stage will feature Caribou, Pantha du Prince, Jungle, Talaboman, Evian Christ and many more.

Online electronic music magazine Resident Advisor presents the Hiroshima Mon Amour stage on Thursday November 6. The RA showcase will see Australian composer Ben Frost perform his new live show, with support from hypnotic Italian duo Primitive Art and another special guest TBA.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Bleep.com will present a showcase on the festival's main stage on Saturday November 8, featuring Clark with his new a/v show, electronic veteran Luke Vibert, transglobal collective Future Brown, and Bleep DJs. More details to follow.
 
The theme for the 14th festival edition is The Trojan Horse. Sergio Ricciardone, the festival's art director said: "Fads and trends developing in the underground replicate into the mainstream until they become massive, just like the Trojan horse is introduced to hide itself and replicate up to take control.

"Alfa Romeo MiTo Club to Club knows how to read trends when they are still underground and intercepts them before they become mass phenomena."
