    MTF London

    LSO, Barbican St Luke’s, 5-7 September 2014

    90 performers / presenters, 50 hackers and 20 kid hackers with chaperones, the third edition of #MTFLondon was mind-blowing. Amongst other things, it saw the first on-stage collaboration between Tim Exile, Leafcutter John, Jason Singh and Yazz Ahmed; a GUNK (Geek Punk) experiment with Lu from PIL, Feral Five, Fakebit Polytechnic and a 3D printer on drums; and an impromptu collaboration between Shlomo and a hacker on a 3D-printed guitar.
