With Supersonic Presents…
+ FAT OUT DJS & GLITTER STATION
Today we’re shouting about the awesome Emma Thompson, creative director of Fat Out – curating shows for the rowdy, weird & obscure since 2008.
From the burgeoning underground scene in Salford, Manchester, Fat Out venture into the obscure and creative potential of artists both locally and internationally with an aim of discovering new and adventurous music and producing captivating live shows for both artist and audience alike. Aside from aiming to promote a combination of challenging, intense, experimental and downright rowdy music, one of the driving ideals is to treat artists with the respect, trust and professionalism deserved.
Here’s what a Fat Out fest looks like…
Cementing the true collaborative spirit we experimental independent programmers share, back in 2017 at the last Fat Out fest, Supersonic curated a stage on the Sunday of the festival. At 2018’s Supersonic, the Manchester crew descended in full force bringing us Fat Out DJ sets across the weekend, the gorgeous glitter station & Emma even appeared in the infamous Supersonic Supergroup! We continue our loving relationship with Fat Out via the Outlands Network as well. If you haven’t heard about this yet, it’s a cohort of experimental music & art promoters & venues across the UK aimed at touring bold, adventurous collaborations to multiple regions. Emma is a partner in the cohort, the Fat Out curated tour is still to come later this year – hold on to your seats!
Aside from all the awesome work Emma does as a curator, she’s a creative force to be reckoned with in her own right. Her newest creative outlet in collaboration with Kaskie, Godspeed You! Peter Andre is something to behold – gothic duo set to collide the world of pop royalty with deep dark witch music. They will be opening up proceedings on March 9th for our celebration at Centrala, so be sure to get down for doors at 7pm to catch their set!
The Manchester crew are descending on Brum in full force for our shindig next week. As well as GSY!PA, we’ll be getting a Fat Out DJ set & FABULOUS glitter station once again, darlings. We can’t wait to hang out with our pals from up North. One thing’s for sure, these gals know how to party.
So don’t miss out on all the fun and be sure to GET YOUR TICKETS! for what’s set to be a riotous night!
FAT OUT TIL YOU PASS OUT!
See you there friends.
