Festival disclaimer

Incubate tries to show you art (be it music, film, theater, visual or otherwise) that originates in underground scenes and (sub)cultures. The artists ways of dealing with life and art might not be your preferred choice.

The ideas, meanings and intentions of artists participating in the festival are not necessarily our own. We feel that it is important to highlight different aspects of cutting edge art, even though the imagery displayed or styles shown might offend others. Please be aware of that risk within the artistic choices we make as a festival.

Like our teachers told us: contradictions like positivism and negativism, sperm and blood have always been central themes in art; from The Old Testament till Dante's Inferno, from Monteverdi till Motörhead and from Jesus till GG Allin.

Parody, irony, pastiche, deconstruction, the anti-aesthetic are some of the techniques. (Anti)utopism and the quest for pure honesty and pure evil are some of the themes. The response may say as much about the recipient's mind as it says about the sender.

This does not mean that everything is possible at the festival. If we, or the majority of the audience, could be offended by symbols, appearance or behaviour, we have the right to ban you from our festival. Please notify Incubate crew if you notice any offending signs in the Incubate venues.

Incubate is about as good as it gets when it comes to showcasing contemporary left-field art and extreme music."
