Geneva, Switzerland

The Mapping Festival is an international cultural event dedicated to VJing and its neighbouring disciplines, that is to say audiovisual art in the broadest sense of the word. Created in 2005, the Mapping Festival is already in its eighth edition. Year after year, it continues to attract a broader public and to put an emphasis on the most forefront artists while introducing their work and creations built of all kinds of new and innovative technologies.


You’ve asked for it on Facebook, you’ve desperately looked for it on our website, you’ve even tried to rob us information on Twitter, but there was nothing to do about it, we’ve kept the secret until the very last minute.

Less than two months before the eighth edition of the Mapping Festival, taking place this year from May 10th to 20th in Geneva, we’ve finally decided to reveal the line-up.

For this 2012 edition, the Mapping Festival remains true to its motto “Visual – Audio & Deviant Electronics” and presents an architectural mapping of the Museum of art and history, takes you on a fairground stall, gives you the opportunity to discover La Gravière, invites you to a Secret Label Party, a new audiovisual label, and make you lose your bearings with such performances as Dieu est un DJ, Loop me or La Caputxeta Galàctica.

Want to know more? We’re getting to the heart of it …

This year, we’ve decided to unveil our program step by step. You will find below our global line-up, but some focuses will follow, to keep the party going!

But let’s not make you languish any longer…
