Final preparation is taking place for the Placard Headphones festival to be held in London on 17th July 2004.

Dual will perform a special one off set with phonographer and sound & theatre artist .murmer.

14 hours of headphones-only performances from the cream of UK underground electronica and beyond. Last year over 500 people packed into the state51 factory space to experience a day of headphonics. Think of a festival in reverse. Forget about background chatter: for once, it's a chance for some focused listening. All performances are heard only through headphones, artists play 20 minute sets and the whole thing is streamed to listening rooms around the world.
To 'open a placard' - invite people to gather and listen to the event, it is not available as any radio stream. You are encouraged if outside London (and beyond) to create your own Placard and connect to the Global Placard. For any information on how to set-up a 'listening placard', contact PLACARD at

Lining up in the state51 warehouse space are 2004 Ars Electronica-winners Janek Schaefer and Leafcutter John, alongside Main, David Toop & Max Eastley, dDamage, Hot Chip, Holkham, Antenna Farm, Noun, John Chantler, Adem Ilhan/8 Hours, Paul Hood, Cylens, Discom, The Sound Of Squaljax & Farbulous, Jonathan Coleclough, sAnso-xtro, eg0 + e/n, Heller, Dallas Simpson vs Viv Corringham, Michael Rodgers vs Romuald Wadych, Nada, Nebogeo, Table, Claire Hope, 87 Central, CK Dexter Haven, Fisk Industries, Dual vs Murmer, A.M.P. Studio, Duncan Whitley, Smack Miranda, Karina ESP, Ed Bennett vs Cormac Heron, Yellow6, Rashamon, Same Actor, Pez Orchestra, Recon vs Thorsten Sideb0ard, Emanuela De Angelis, Cedric Pin.

Also on display will be video, photography and installation work by Steinbrüchel/Brusca, Semiconductor Films, Dual, Jayrope, Gr., iMax and others tbc.

highpoint lowlife records, coombe records, idoia, murmer, [no.signal], slub, midRange, state51, the slow sound system.

Praise for last year's festival: 'massively straight-faced' The Guardian 'one of the highlights of a long hot summer' The Wire
