Now in it’s 14th year, the Y2K14 International Live Looping Festivals have expanded to 21 cities in 11 countries worldwide. It is a very creative and eclectic festival that celebrates the musicians who love to create and manipulate loops, live, in front of an audience. There is no style or genre associated with the movement, just the love augmenting musical performance with digital and analogue looping techniques.The main festival is in Santa Cruz, California for 3 days in the 3rd weekend of October every year. This years’ festival will be from October 15th – 20th in San Jose, San Francisco and Santa Cruz/Watsonville
