The guest curators include Simpsons creator Matt Groening, My Bloody Valentine, Laurie Anderson, Theo Parrish, Dopplereffekt, Amaarae, Arca, Mica Levi and Laurie Anderson, among others.
The broadcast event will run from 19-23 April and will serve to raise funds for the Global FoodBanking Network.

NTS – an abbreviation for “Nuts To Soup” – traces its origins to an episode of The Simpsons. When asked about the name in a 2019 interview with Hypebeast, NTS founder Femi Adeyemi said: “I could really get into a deep philosophical reason why we chose the name, and there is one, trust me.
“But to not go overboard, and to keep things simple: it’s a quote I took from Homer Simpson.”
Further details on NTS’ birthday event, along with a complete schedule is expected to drop tomorrow (14 April).
