Get involved! Sofasonic Festival events announced

We recently announced Sofasonic Festival, a weekend of online events, 17-19 July, where we’ll be honouring our dedicated team of staff and volunteers (without whom none of the magic would take place), making a space for our loyal audiences to re-connect (albeit digitally), and celebrating artists from our incredible line-up that couldn’t be.

We’ll be announcing the full line-up soon, but today, we’re excited to reveal some special events happening as part of Sofasonic weekend.


These events are Pay As You Feel, so if you’re in a position to, we ask you to please contribute what you can afford. This will help to secure the future work of Supersonic, enabling us to support artists and our freelance team. In addition 25% of all proceeds will be donated to The Trussell Trust, who support a nationwide network of food banks. The Trussell Trust, are working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

All participatory – all bags of fun! So get involved and book now…

What more could you possibly want to do with your Saturday night?!

The Newcastle-based maximalists whose heavy riffs, raw power and rancour have blazed a trail across many a Supersonic line-up, will be hosting this classic game as part of our Sofasonic weekend. Join the boys via a live stream on Zoom and play from the comfort of your home. Expect a thundering soundtrack, number-calling chaos and some lip-smackin’ good prizes to be won courtesy of Purity Brewery plus a Supersonic goodie bag AND a surprise treat from the PIGS!

Not General Knowledge Pub Quiz

Sunday 19 July 2020, evening (time TBA)
Live Stream via Zoom
| Tickets & more info |

Points do not win prizes but they might get you a little respect in the hardest music pub quiz going, run by Late Junction host and Wire/Quietus writer Jennifer Lucy Allan.

Far superior to your family Zoom quiz… Roll up for a game of guess the drone, and test your memory (but not your search engine) at the hardest picture round you ever encountered. Stick around to test your lack of general knowledge in favour of obscure specifics about music! Winning team receives some treats courtesy of Purity Brewery and Rocket Recordings!


Do.omyoga (Live Stream)

Sunday 19 July 2020, 11:00 GMT
Live Stream via Zoom

DO.OMYOGA is a very immersive and deeply connecting Yoga practice. Experience this meditation in the comfort of your own home by bringing together music and movement with stillness.

“Change is life and the only constant is change. We’ve learned connection through isolation, dependency and trust in an online world and had much the time and space to truly BE with ourselves personally and globally. For this session, we will come together to continue to explore the self, here and now, through the love of music.” – Kamellia Sara
