AudioVision is an audio visual festival which takes place in Liverpool from Monday 15th to Saturday 20th September and combines live VJing and DJing with artist screenings and visual workshops to celebrate Liverpool's Capital of Culture status and the 5th Biennial.

Artists performing over the event include NOMO, Jacqueline Passmore, The Smith Quartet, Addictive TV, flat-e & Ultre, and Kinetic Fallacy.
From Monday 15th to Friday 19th September, live footage of the city and its people will be projected onto the vent alongside large-scale video installations from American artists and musicians NOMO and Liverpool-based visual artist Jacqueline Passmore.
There is a ticket only performance which will take place at The Bluecoat on Wednesday 17th September, when The Smith Quartet will be using strings and electronics to perform music by Steve Reich and new composers in conjunction with commissioned cinematic pieces from six local visual artists.
