Supersonic Birmingham Taster this week

This Saturday 4th August we’re hosting a taster event for the 10 edition of the festival – extending our birthday celebrations as much as we can!

With a stellar and diverse line up this should get us all excited for October. King Midas Sound System aka Kevin Martin of The Bug, drops DJ exclusive dubs/versions and remixes as well as bleeding other artists’ music into the astounding sound design, with special guest vocals. Justin Broadrick will give a UK premier performance of his new project JK Flesh, expect soul-crushingly dark beats and bass, layered with Broadrick’s inimitable guitar.

We’ve also taken the opportunity to programme some exciting sounds from some Birmingham based experimental sound artists. Iron Fist of the Sun blends power electronics and black metal, Laurence Hunt of Pram and Modified Toy Orchestra performs a new solo percussive piece and Sarah M Farmer will play an entire orchestral piece using DIY instrumentation.

The taster takes place at Eastside Projects, Heath Mill Lane, Digbeth and doors are 7.30pm. Tickets are available via
