We can’t quite believe it, but it’s now only ONE MONTH TO GO until Supersonic Festival 2023! The team are rapidly ramping up to bring you an extraordinary weekend of experimental music, workshops, talks, DJs, food, exhibitions and more!
Recently, we’ve announced that the mighty ALGIERS will be joining the lineup alongside GODFLESH, DEERHOOF, LANKUM, BACKXWASH and so much more.
There’s only 100 weekend tickets left – so if you haven’t already, grab yours here.
This year marks 20 years since the first incarnation of Supersonic Festival, celebrating two decades of championing experimental and adventurous music and creating an inclusive and joyful space where all are welcome.
Here at Supersonic Festival we have cultivated a forward-thinking, one-of-a-kind experience, showing immense resilience against the odds in the 20 years since our inception. The team are so excited to welcome loyal fans and curious new audiences to Digbeth, in the heart of post-industrial Birmingham on the 1-3 September.
“Over the last 20 years our aim has been to provide a means for unity, for escapism, camaraderie; for belonging and most importantly for unrestrained joy.” – Lisa Meyer, Artistic Director/co-founder, Supersonic Festival
With only one month to go before we opens our doors, this year we welcome homecoming heroes Godflesh, whose origins are deeply entrenched in the backdrop of Birmingham, and Zambian-Canadian rapper & producer Backxwash, performing her first and only UK performance as a Supersonic Festival exclusive. Known for their captivating live performance are the widely acclaimed Irish quartet Lankum, and Deerhoof, one of indie music’s most influential bands. Just announced and joining them are Algiers who shall perform as a duo, presenting their anti-fascist dystopian grooves.
