TRIBE® Photo Chillout Room at the B.B.C. Festival July 8-10

York Quay Centre
Open all Weekend

Rare Photos from raves, nightclubs, and warehouse parties 1993-2005

Thousands and thousands of rare images from the TRIBE MAGAZINE and tribe.ca archives, taken from the beginning of the electronic music scene in 1993 until the present day will be displayed on large TV monitors positioned around the perimeter of the gallery space.

In the center of the room, giant overstuffed beanbag chairs will let people meet, relax and talk, chill and watch, or just take a break between the outdoor shows while images from the scene surround them.

Carinet, violin and drums merge with digital sound samples and ambient noise to create a strange and fascinating sound hard to qualify - we think of it as a soundscape.
