Expect a departure from past iterations of the festival towards a decentralised, wilfully fragmented and arguably unexpected and subversive journey—experimenting with conceptual parasitism, fungal webs and participation by connecting and handing over agency to art and sound collectives.

Through these symbiotic constellations, parasitic entities are being formed alongside the self-curated programme in the theatre Gessnerallee. Artist collective Sonnenstube from Lugano will be nested at Toxi, while Geneva-based Espace 3353 join forces with UNI and Fribourg’s WallStreet team up with the offspace ALLDA. In line with this, UMBO presents two co-curated club nights with diverse and witchy acts. A spacious immersive sound installation as well as a number of daytime activities are also to be discovered.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Backslash Festival 2020 had to be canceled. Yet, the immersive sound installation has been open to the public, hosting several live acts.
