Wired Plans ‘Live Magazine’ Event

Wired is getting into the festival scene. WxD will be a two day “live magazine” event put on by Wired to celebrate the best in design and culture. Picture Coachella, minus the drugs and pseudo-hippies with awful clothes, but add nerds and architecture fans.

WxD will coincide with Wired’s October Design issue. It will be held September 29 in Marin County, California. A few of the confirmed participants include Aaron Koblin, Google’s creative director of data arts; Wyatt Mitchell, The New Yorker’s creative director; Jeff Nichols, director of Mud and other films; and Sia, the singer/songwriter.

“Whether you’re creating a visual interface, cutting an album, or developing a tasting menu, design shapes the human experience,” said Scott Dadich, Wired’s editor, in a statement. “We recognized an opportunity to broaden the definition of design and learn from the people who are changing the way we communicate, socialize, and enjoy food, film, and music.”

Plus, everyone likes a good excuse to party.
