We’re back! Supersonic Festival 2022

“★★★★★ UK’s best small festival – By embracing the heaviness in Birmingham’s heritage, and adding a strong dose of eccentricity, Supersonic is world-class.” – The Guardian 


Supersonic 2022: First Line-up Announcement & Useful Information

Supersonic Festival is returning in 2022 on the weekend of July 8 – 10, celebrating our 16th edition with an ambitious programme of mind bending music, sense shifting art and life altering experiences. 

After two years of being apart, going virtual for Sofasonic in 2020, and everything that’s happened since the fifteenth anniversary edition in 2019, the team behind Supersonic Festival are more ready than ever to make a comeback. We cannot wait to once again host our cherished audience, wider festival team and incredible volunteers. There is one hell of a line up on its way, featuring live performances from the best experimental practitioners out there – expect new commissions, collaborations, workshops, talks and much more!

Our evolution continues as we move to an exciting new home on the outer edges of Digbeth, Birmingham. With our venue partners we will ensure the spaces where we work are safe and inclusive for everyone. Our Code of Conduct clearly outlines the behaviours that we are opposed to and will not tolerate. Furthermore we will continue to work with our staff, volunteers and artists to ensure our work is as environmentally conscious as it can be – and we know our audience is on board with this too. 

We cannot wait to welcome you all back, and share the first of our line up announcements with you.

The last two years have been wrought with challenges, felt by everyone on all levels. However, we promised We Will Rise Again, and that’s exactly what we are planning to do, with your support…

Nowhere else will you find a festival experience quite like Supersonic’s – since 2003, we have been hosting superior weekends for the adventurous audience, taking care to present only the most artistically relevant and irreverent acts from the UK and across the globe, while simultaneously making sure to fill every moment with the opportunities to let loose and party, or sit down at engaging talks, discussions and workshops, or take in exclusive screenings and exhibitions.

“Supersonic reasserts itself as the best European festival for new music” – The Quietus
