We just want to take a moment to celebrate all the amazing reviews, write-ups & feedback we’ve had of our 15th edition!
“By embracing the heaviness in Birmingham’s heritage, and adding a strong dose of eccentricity, Supersonic is world-class”
READ THE GUARDIAN REVIEW HERE.
“2019 is a big deal in the Supersonic universe, as it marks the fifteenth time that the Festival has been held in Birmingham – the Home of Metal. So, what better way to celebrate than to kick things off with a doubleheader at the City’s iconic Town Hall venue and what better bands to do the honours than local lads, Godflesh and US noise veterans, Neurosis?”
READ THE ART DESK’S REVIEW HERE.
“Supersonic Festival celebrates weirdness. It encourages unbridled creativity. It expands the imagination. It promotes the free and limitless pursuit of expression in order to expand the body, the mind, and the human spirit. It forges unlikely connections between ostensibly different areas, ideas, people and disciplines.”

“Once the rattling drum machines of the latter give way to the glistening sludge of the former, the festival is well and truly underway. Neurosis’ set is crafted with a theatrical sensibility, and their imposing post-metal sound feels strangely at home set against the venue’s record-breaking pipe organ.”

“a festival that creates a space for the music fan to escape any notion of ‘mainstream’ and take a personal journey of sonoric discovery and enlightenment…”

“Godflesh address the lighting engineer. “No spots, just blue on stage. We want it dark”. And dark they got. And heavy we got. It was glorious. If the rest of the weekend is this good then we’ll be just fine.”
