The Daytime Lectures
CNTRL also features special guest speakers in each city during the daytime lecture programming, including Tiga (Nov 5, Montreal) and John Acquaviva (Nov 6, London Ontario) with more to be announced. The events focus on the techno and technology aspects of modern-day electronic music, presenting the more futuristic and underground side of the genre, as championed by HAWTIN and DICE and their peers for the last two decades.
Central to the CNTRL concept are daytime seminars in the colleges to inform and inspire people about technology, music production, live performance, and the business of electronic music and are presented by world renowned electronic music production and DJ school, DUBSPOT.
The Night Events
All DJs performing on the night participate in the master classes by day, and CNTRL invites local DJ / production / industry pioneers from each region to also take part in the events. CNTRL is a future thinking session but also ensures the students leave with a deeper understanding of how the genre developed to where it is today. The event then ends with a low-ticket gig at a venue near campus, giving the students a chance to experience the artists in action.
