No Bounds Festival has announced its 2022 programme, featuring established names in electronic music alongside up-and-coming performers, commissions and workshops.

Taking place on 14-16 October, the festival kicks off with live performances from Blawan and Blackhaine at Sheffield Cathedral, and closes with a concert curated by Rotherham-based sound artist Mark Fell.

The programme includes live performances from dBridge, The Black Dog, Deena Abdelwahed, Lyzza and Grove; DJ sets from Helena Hauff, Job Jobse, India Jordan, Saoirse, Scratchclart and TSVI; and back-to-back DJ sets from SHERELLE and Kode 9, and Batu and Skee Mask - among many others.

No Bounds-affiliated venue Hope Works will be "home base" for the festival. 'Satellite' venues will include DINA, Bal Fashions, the Dorothy Pax and Plot 22.

The festival has become known for charting the boundary between art and technology, a theme highlighted this year by two featured projects.

The interdisciplinary artistic group Patterns in Between Intelligences explores improvisation in both live coding sounds and coding through dance, combining the talents of live coders Alex McLean and Lizzie Wilson, 'e-textile' designer Mika Satomi and performers Deva Schubert and Juan Felipe Amaya Gonzalez to create "performative rituals".

Intersymmetric Sequencer NNNB, a collaboration between Mark Fell and Rian Treanor commissioned for No Bounds 2021, continues to develop its collaborative, multiplayer music-making website, in collaboration with Uganda's Nyege Nyege collective, at this year's festival.
