Photographers, Supersonic needs YOU!


There are plenty of opportunities to get involved as a volunteer at Supersonic Festival Ltd Edition 2015.

Supersonic has secured its experimental reputation with over 10 years of consistently innovative and explosive concoctions of visual installations, films, exhibitions and music. Guaranteed to open your eyes and ears to music and art outside the predictable genre labels and familiar performance spaces, Supersonic thrives on the spirit of adventure and discovery.

Our 2015 Line up includes:

Apostille / Afework Nigussie / Circuit Des Yeux / Eternal Tapestry / Flamingods / Gazelle Twin / Happy Meals / Jiří Wehle / Liima Efterklang + Tatu Rönkkö / Liturgy / Phil Tyler / Ravioli Me Away / Rhodri Davies / Richard Dawson / Selvhenter / Sex Swing / Six Organs of Admittance/ Slow Magic / The Pop Group / Tomaga / Wildbirds and Peacedrums / Will Gregory Moog Ensemble / Woven Skull

We are looking a dedicated team of Photography Volunteers to help document Supersonic over the festival weekend (11 -14 June )

Volunteers must have experience in photographing intimate live music events, have their own equipment and the knowledge and ability needed to capture the performances and the festival crowd in a creative and visually dynamic way. Knowledge of flash photography is also desirable.

This year our media partners include: The Quietus, The Skinny and Fact, so this is a great opportunity to develop your professional portfolio.

We will ask you to provide an edited selection of images taken while working at the festival. We would need you to provide high and low resolution jpgs to the organizer, with permission to use for marketing purposes, no later than one week after the event.

We would expect a minimum of 15 hours over the festival period in exchange for a weekend wristband.

The festival programme runs:

Friday      12th  :     8.00pm – 2.00am  

Saturday  13th  :     4.00pm 3.00am 

Sunday     14th :     3.00pm 8.00pm  


If you have are interested in being a volunteer photographer at this year’s festival please contact our Volunteer coordinator Sean on email [email protected]  with “ SS Photography 2015” in the title of your email and include a CV which includes a link to your online portfolio.
