This year we are organizing the first edition of TRANSIT, a festival of music and electronic arts, taking place at the train station in Chiasso (Switzerland) from 13nd to 19th 2006. Chiasso is on the borderline, on an imaginary line drawing the separation between Switzerland and the North of Italy (less than 1h by car from Milan).

Basically the festival constists of 3 main parts: a radio station broadcasting via FM as well as via streaming from a waiting room on a platform (check our website around October for more info about streaming and programs), sound/visual/interactive installations turning the station in a museum plus a 3 days installation at the customs and 3 days of music, visuals and interactions at the stations ex-buffet (from Thursday 16th to Saturday 18th November).

Furthermore, the town hall is supporting the festival by organizing a piece of theatre-dance as opening act of the live performances and a vox/dance performance in a church. The first is taking place on Wednesday 15th and the other on Thursday 16th November.
