Richie Hawtin presents CNTRL: Individuality & Creativity in Technology-Based Music, a college campus tour, from April 15 – 25, 2015. Celebrating underground dance music, techno, and other sub-genres, Richie Hawtin is bringing along a slew of guests for the CNTRL college tour.
Kicking things off on April 15 in Boston, MA at Berklee College of Music and Middle East Downstairs, the eight-show tour will incorporate live sets in New York, Toronto, Montreal, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
“I hope that people walk away from the CNTRL tour with a deeper understanding and appreciation for the individual creativity that each artist & performer puts into their own shows. We hope that some of the participants and fans will be inspired to take their next steps at trying their hands at their own creativity.” -Richie Hawtin
