CDR, Outlook, and Dimensions are proud to introduce a new learning-focused space to the festivals.

The Knowledge Arena is a daytime tent with a focus on music creation, performance and collaboration. A space where festival-goers and artists will be inspired by their surroundings and have the opportunity to creatively channel their experiences in the sun. 

The programme is a mix of music creation workshops, artist masterclasses and conversations, with plenty of time for one to develop their own ideas and form collaborations during ‘Open Play’ supported by a team of specialist producers and DJs. Each session is concluded with live performances and DJ sets, of which set the tone for night time ahead.

CDR Knowledge has a rich history of inspirational and collaborative projects spanning back over 5 years, and we are very excited to launch this year’s project with Outlook and Dimensions Festival.

The Knowledge Arena is supported by Ableton, Akai, InMusic and M-Audio.
