Supersonic Festival is the UK’s premier experimental music festival, bringing together sound, digital, visual art, and audience participation to create legendary one-of-a-kind performances. It takes place alongside a free-to-access programme of participatory art, and a year-round programme of live events, digital projects, and kids gigs which present the highest quality new work in ways you least expect.
From hand crafted wooden structures designed by the award winning Studio Myerscough which acted as a billboard for the opening of the largest library in Europe to an immersive installation with remote control cars with styli attached, which raced across a track constructed from 1000’s of disused vinyl records nestled under a giant viaduct, to a stupendous procession of unexplored rhythms, unsung songs, unexplainable creatures and un-mythical beings set on a village green in Stoke-on-Trent.
Produced by Capsule, a producer and champion of experimental art and music. Through our annual Supersonic Festival, large-scale projects like Home of Metal, and an artist development programme, we craft extraordinary new work for curious audiences.
