Quebec's FIMAV Brings Out Magma, Deerhoof, Nels Cline
The music festival roster rollouts have been plentiful this week, and Quebec's long-running Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville is getting into the action too. After a few early reveals, organizers have confirmed the lineup includes the likes of Parisian prog greats weirdoes Magma, American experimental rock act Deerhoof and composer/Wilco guitarist Nels Cline.

The 31st annual edition of FIMAV takes place at various venues in Victoriaville between May 14 and 17. Previously, we'd learned that Magma would be hitting the fest as part of their North American tour, but there's plenty other interesting events lined up for FIMAV.

For instance, Montreal artists Suuns and Jersusalem in My Heart will be performing a set to promote their upcoming self-titled collaborative album. Nels Cline will be premiering new work with his Nels Cline Singers Unlimited. And other acts attached to this year's festivities include Slovenian avant-garde outfit Laibach, Chicago experimentalist Joshua Abrams, Italian doom/drone unit Ovo, sound artists Akio Suzuki and Aki Onda, Canadian composer Linda Bouchard, the aforementioned Deerhoof and more.

You'll find a fuller breakdown of the schedule over here.

Early bird pre-sale passes for FIMAV are currently going for $280 until Monday afternoon (March 2), at which point the price jumps up to $350. Ticketing info can be found here.
