Festival INFO

Experience the pinnacle of audiovisual performing arts at Rich Mix, in the cultural heart of east-central London, to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of ground-breaking Crux events.

Our diverse programme features an array of audiovisual performances from emerging artists as well as more established names, participatory workshops and opportunities to get involved with our jam session and open-mic electronic-music performance slots.

Two rooms upstairs at Rich Mix will be the main hub of our festival. Each afternoon will be filled with enlightening workshops and talks, paving the way for electrifying live performances in the evening. The Saturday night features a late finish – with a high-energy afterparty in the downstairs gig space.

You can choose from a range of different tickets to suit all budgets. Although the easiest and best value is to buy a full weekend ticket, we wanted to make our event accessible and you can attend just one part of the festival.

Crux is committed to inclusivity, showcasing a spectrum of incredible artists and implementing both an environmental and safer spaces policy. Rich Mix is a fully accessible venue – please reach out to one of our team if you have any concerns.


Saturday 13 April: 2pm-1am

  • Workshops/talks/presentations from 3pm-6pm
  • Performances from 6pm-9pm
  • Afterparty/gig downstairs 9pm-1am

Sunday 14 April: 2pm-11pm

  • Workshops/talks/presentations from 3pm-7pm
  • AV jam session 5pm-7pm
  • Performances from 7pm-11pm

Alternatively you can come and learn, be entertained – or both – by picking one of our various other ticket options.

Who or what is Crux anyway?
This festival celebrates 10 years of Crux audiovisual performance events! We have been putting on non-profit orientated events that showcase both emerging and more established artists in more than a dozen different venues across London. The festival is being produced in partnership with Rich Mix and is funded by Arts Council England.


Until we open the doors of Rich Mix and begin Crux Festival 2025!
