Darkstar bring their idiosyncratic take on electronic pop music to the Sage Gateshead concourse at the heart of the After Dark Festival.

Key voices on the scene for the best part of two decades, Darkstar have recently worked with the likes of Actress, Wild Beasts and Zomby. They have also released music with Empress Of (XL) and Gaika, collaborating with director Lucy Luscombe and Random Acts for Channel 4, working on ground-breaking live dance performances with choreographer Holly Blakey (Micah Levi) and scoring the Palme d’Or nominated short film Dreamlands.

The band has worked with St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, in Minneapolis, Metal Liverpool, Arts Council England and Harthill Community centre to create an installation and performance piece with teens from migrant communities. The final performance, TRACKBED, was performed at the Barbican in London.
