Following excellent feedback from last year's event, music tech festival We Are Robots is returning to London's Old Truman Brewery this October with more shows and talks.

We Are Robots: Future and Innovation of Music, now entirely free for all attendees, will also bring workshops and exhibitions, notably much awaited previews of hardware from ROLI, Teenage Engineering & Source Distribution: "we’re bringing mind-blowing musical experiences that will appeal to anyone, no matter their music-making skills," says ROLI’s Head of Relationship Marketing Konstantin Hess. "Our innovative, touch-sensitive instruments help people tap out their first beats on a futuristic drum pad or craft incredibly expressive synth leads on futuristic keyboards."

Besides the numerous talks and presentations -- whose themes include 'Technologies in Music: How far have we come and where do we go next?' -- there will also be live shows taking place at Rough Trade and other opportunities to experiment with the new tech equipment featured during the festival.

We Are Robots takes place October 12th-14th; for more information head here.
