VJ-DJ Sets

The VJ performances represent one of the historical moments of LPM. Since the first edition in 2004 thousands of Vjs from around the world have flocked to our screens with colors, stories, and visual rhythms. Also this year the best international Vjs are hosted in Rome to show all their talent and their creativity.



The workshops and showcases are dedicated to learning and sharing, drawing upon the theme of live video culture. We explore theories of content production and the processing of images, we study and experiment with new technologies, develop cultural debates about free and open source and learn about the latest news in software and hardware development.


VJ Torna

VJ Torna is a world touring VJ contest which offers an inspiring and entertaining experience for both live video practitioners and the general audience. The first competition was organised in 2004 in Budapest, with the aim of gathering artists from the local and the international VJ scene, and since 2011 the VJ Torna team has joined LPM to offer this inspiring experience to our international community. Three days of battles among VJs, an international jury of experts, three categories Pre-production, VJ Battle and Best Live Mapper, an Audience Award and technical sponsors who put their products up for grabs.

You can find detailed information about the VJ Torna on the dedicated website:


AV Performances

AV performances are the heart of the meeting and the most interesting opportunity of comparison for the artists themselves.The programme offers projects that use very different techniques, but at the same time follow a common thread that evolves throughout the day. From video theater to video dance, from live cinema performances to queer culture, from generative music and visuals to live coding, until the final parties, animated by international DJs and VJs.


Video Installations

By abandoning the stage, digital art can come close to the public producing intimate and unexpected modalities of fruition. Video, sound, touch and movement become the new vocabulary of a language dedicated to creation of interactive games and perceptual experiences of meaning and image. Interactivity is the key to reading these works, works that investigate well beyond the boundaries of visual communication, in order to enable the viewer to interact with them, pushing the senses and confused perceptions of reality and fantasy.
