Echosynthetic Fest Artist Focus: Shredder 1984


Shredder 1984 is the second focus artist in a series of articles that cover each of the Echosynthetic Fest acts. If you’re on the fence about coming I’m hoping that these write-ups will better inform you of who is playing at the show and why you should come out and see them. Like any festival, you’ve got a set of number of artists (in this case it is 10), and you don’t always know much about every band you’re going to see. Our second Echosynthetic Fest focus artist is coming to us all the way from France!

Shredder 1984 is a French synthwave phenom who blends a love for the 1980’s, science fiction, and horror with a musical darkness and swagger that few other artists can equal. He has a fully fleshed out live show that he’s tweaked playing shows with Vogel, Future Holotape, FacexHugger, Neon Genesis, Dreddd, and more at shows on ranging from New York to Los Angeles. With a new album on the way a brand new music video for Synth City (see above!), Shredder 1984 looks to close the year out strong with a string of US tour dates. Know where it kicks off? Echosynthetic Fest!

The $15.00 price of entry gets you Shredder 1984, but that’s not all! You also get to see Majeure (AE Paterra of Zombi!) from Pittsburgh, Vampire Step-Dad from Atlanta, Glitch Black from Louisiana, FacexHugger from California, 10th Letter from Atlanta, Gregorio Franco from Atlanta, Pattern Language from Colorado, Frisky Monkey from Atlanta, and Ian Deaton from Atlanta.

Beyond Echosynthetic Fest being a gathering of some of the hottest artists in synthwave and synthpop, it’s also a great opportunity to meet and hang out with other fans and artists from around the United States. We’ve got confirmed guests ranging from Seattle and Los Angeles to Boston and Minnesota, including well known synthwave artists who are coming to hang out and enjoy the Fest! But wait, there’s more! Sharing Needles With Friends Podcast are recording a documentary at the show, performing interviews with artists and fans, and capturing this gathering of synth family, known lovingly on the scene as #synthfam. Come out and join us! Tickets are still available at Freshtix!
