Altered Fest, a celebration of squiggly beats and animated high jinks, returns for its second year in Fort Lauderdale. And although this nascent media and music event touts itself as an animation and EDM festival, it’s much more than that. On top of more than a dozen DJs, live acts, and animated movie screenings, the agenda boasts indie movie previews, CGI game designs, videogames, and 3-D artwork on display (glasses included.) Altering perceptions is the common thread in this mixed bag of art and performance pieces. Chris Dopey, Untamed McKenzie, Devin Crip, Unknown Liquid, and others lead the way in the music department, dishing a melange of house, dubstep, and electro, while Bad Seeds the Movie, a partially animated feature, gives audiences a chance to participate in this unique movie project’s ending.
