In the past few years, the Momentary has brought internationally known artists in roots, folk, rock, pop, and country music to its space in downtown Bentonville. Now, it’s time to make way for electronic music.
Momentous is a four-day electronic music experience whose inaugural series is happening at the Momentary this October 20-23. Internationally known artists–many of whom have never performed in the Heartland before–including Arca, Four Tet, Ben UFO, Hyd, and others are coming to Northwest Arkansas from all across the world to showcase what’s happening in the global electronic music scene today. The venue is proving that you don’t have to travel to New York or Los Angeles to experience great electronic music. (And have you seen flight prices lately? Save your hard-earned money.)
Momentous offers an affordable experience, rich with substance. Tickets are sold separately for each night, so you can pick and choose which nights to attend or do all four for $100 ($55 for students); plus, Sunday afternoon’s concert is free for everyone, and student discount tickets are available each day.
Each evening is a different experience, and we have all the details for you right here:
Thursday, October 20 | Ryoichi Kurokawa – subassemblies | Hyd
Friday, October 21 | Four Tet + Ben UFO | Jlin
Saturday, October 22 | Arca | BGIdj (fka Total Freedom)
Sunday, October 23 | Courtyard Sessions: Local Electronic Artists
Free concert | Presented in partnership with Creative Arkansas Community Hub & Exchange (CACHE)
Plus: 2 immersive sound installations! In addition to music, Momentous attendees can also enjoy two immersive sound installations: Hannah Perry: Rage Fluids and SUB by Kurt Hentschläger.
