From March 17-18, San Francisco is playing host to VICE and Intel's The Creators Project, the arts and tech festival now in its third year. The initiative, which is dedicated to supporting creativity, lands in creativity-hub San Francisco for the first time (past locations include Beijing, Sao Paulo, New York, Paris, Lyon and Seoul). This one will feature works, performances, screenings and workshops, including the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, James Murphy, Squarepusher, David Bowie + Mick Rock + Barney Clay, United Visual Artists + Scanner, Chris Milk, The Antlers, SoSoLimited, Health, Zola Jesus, Shabazz Palaces and more.

RSVP for tickets (free) here. More details and the lineup below:

The historic Fort Mason site will transform into a huge interactive showcase, where art and technology merge for tens of thousands of guests.

Performances will feature the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, and Squarepusher, who will take the stage for the second time ever in the US in seven years. Additional musical acts will include The Antlers, Health, Zola Jesus, Shabazz Palaces, New Pants with Feng Menbgo's Bruce Lee VJ Project, The Hundred in the Hands, and Teen Daze.

The two-day festival will feature a number of global artworks and installations, including a rendition of United Visual Artists + Scanner's "Origin" - the striking 40-foot by 40-foot audiovisual cubic sculpture originated on the Coachella Music Festival in 2011, and was most recently featured underneath the Brooklyn Bridge at the 2011 event in New York. Additionally, Chris Milk unveils his new, interactive installation, “Our 3 Stages of Flight,” that will span majestically over three walls of a Fort Mason establishment. Barney Clay and Mick Rock’s reinvention of David Bowie performing “Life On Mars” will also be featured at the event. Finally, sprawling pieces from SoSoLimited, Quayola, Superuber, Casey Reas, Zigelbaum + Coelho, Scanner, Minha Yang, Social Print Studio + Intel Labs, and Mira Calix will also grace Fort Mason's grounds.
