The festival kickoff features a cast of world renowned artists including Los Angeles-based poet and community activist Kamau Daáood, pianist Anthony Davis, bassist Mark Dresser, saxophonists Jason Robinson and Ellen Weller, and pianist Bob Weller. A partnership between Trummerflora and the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad, the initial evening of the festival gathers an historic confluence of creative figures in music and poetry.

The second day of the festival brings together an array of cutting edge musicians from Southern California and Mexico. Taking place at Cal State San Marcos, two stages showcase the critically acclaimed avant-jazz quartet Cosmologic, the Binacional Electroacoustic Ensemble featuring Mexican saxophonist and electronics artist Adnan Marquez-Borbon, the Nathan Hubbard/Curtis Glatter Duo, Persian untraditional music by Dornob, a North County collegiate faculty ensemble and student group, and others. An afternoon event stuffed with exquisite sounds for the imaginative listener.

The third event partners Trummerflora with the International Society for Improvised Music (ISIM) to present an evening of creative music at UCSD's Center for Research and Computing in the Arts (CRCA). New York percussionist Harris Eisenstadt and Los Angeles-based bassoonist Sara Schoenbeck present their duo Saris and Trummerflora bassist James Ilgenfritz leads a trio with trumpeter Kris Tiner and Accordionist Isaac Schankler, Things will begin with saxophonist/scholar Jason Robinson moderating a panel discussion titled "Creative Music In and Beyond the Academy: Community Engagement and Experimental Music."

Experimental electronics expands the horizon when pioneers of the genre meet emerging new artists at the Kava Lounge Gallery. George Lewis and Miya Masaoka are two established and influential innovators in digital technology while Hans Fjellestad (MOOG) and David Scott Stone (The Melvins) explore the dark lush world of analog circuits and vacuum tubes, and Marcos Fernandes and Mike Pride interface percussion with phonography. Co-presenters Share SD and Trummerflora provide broken beats and genre-bending electro-acoustic hybrids.

MCA's TNT turns into a multi-media installation when Lower Left's Alicia Marván directs two site-specific dance pieces amongs sculptures by Ernesto Neto and Richard Serra in a creative collaboration with Trummerflora musicians, and the Nortec Collective's Point Loma, Robert M and Braden Diotte complete the aural landscape.
