Przemek Branas: ‘I Is Somebody Else’


After hosting many of our year-round events (and being dear friends/ fellow lovers of weird stuff), we are excited to announce what’s happening during the festival weekend at Centrala.



We are lucky to be just a short walk from this unique, multi-functional gallery where you can engage with the arts, culture, history & social politics of Central & Eastern Europe.

Over the Supersonic weekend, there will be a whole host of killer stuff to get involved with…



  • ‘I Is Somebody Else’
    As part of our Home of Metal season, acclaimed Polish artist Przemek Branas presents an installation inspired by heavy metal culture but also the alternative culture that developed under the communist regime and State-controlled music scene.


  •  ‘Looking beyond the concrete wall’
    Discussion about the UK and Polish underground music scene with British and Polish guests.
    Saturday, 14.00 – 15.30


  •  ‘Beats of Freedom’
    The story of Polish Rock music during the communist era, followed by a Q&A with its director.
    Saturday, 15.30 – 17.00


  •  ‘zine-in-a-day’
    A workshop of zine-making, led by Riff’s magazine editors.
    Sunday, 12.00 – 17.00


  •  ‘Nothing to hear, here!’
    An interactive piece that uses Black Sabbath’s ‘Iron Man’ to explore the tension and confusion of the human perspective of time. Turn up and turn up!
