Warp20, as I think we may have reported before, is a year long celebration for top indie label Warp’s twentieth anniversary, and part of that is going to be a series of live events combining music, film and art, taking place in cities such as New York, London and Paris. More details need to be confirmed, but here’s what’s planned at the moment:

8-9 May: Paris – Cite de la Musique, music, film and art installation events featuring Aphex Twin & Hecker, !!! , Pivot, Andrew Weatherall, DJ Mujava.
Jul: New York – music, film and art installation events
Aug: Sheffield – homecoming party
Sep: London – music, film and art installation events
Nov: Tokyo – music, film and art installation events

The label are also planning to release “the definitive Warp album”, a best of partly selected by music fans, who can vote for their favourites at The voters’ top ten will be combined with tracks selected by Warp co-founder Steve Beckett. Fans will also be asked to leave comments about their choices, which may make it onto the album’s artwork. It’ll be released in the autumn.
