Day lineups announced for Supersonic Festival 2024


After lots of prepping behind the scenes, we are delighted to reveal the day lineups and the addition of acclaimed, socio-politically conscious and aesthetically intrepid avant-jazz practitioner Matana Roberts. Presenting our Saturday night party in collaboration Homobloc are the snoutstanding oinklusive dance troupe FVCK PIGS who will help us unleash the pig within. We are also delighted to be partnering with cult zine Weird Walk who will transform the rooftop bar on the Sunday, erecting ‘standing stones’, and creating space for re-enchantment, music and merriment to thrive. In addition we are thrilled to be working once again with Decolonise Fest, the annual non-profit DIY punk festival collectively organised by and for punx of colour who will be taking over the rooftop bar on Saturday.

Venue update + Additional weekend tickets


O2 Institute

As long-time friends will know, Supersonic has happily been in Digbeth since we first started 21 years ago. Over the last few years, however, we’ve been seeing problems caused by the increasing gentrification of the area and the impact of property developers moving in.

Sadly, this has now directly affected our plans for this year, as the developers who own the warehouse that we used as our main stage last year have let us down at the 11th hour. Despite months of regular meetings and reassurances from them that all was OK, they recently told us that they won’t now be able to let us have the space this year.

As you might imagine, this has caused us a lot of stress behind the scenes over the last few weeks, but we’re delighted to say that we have now found an alternative that we think will actually be a big improvement on what we had last year. We can now confirm that we will be using the O2 Institute as our second stage, it’s a stunning converted Methodist chapel built in the early 1900s. It’s just a short walk from our main festival hub at XOYO (formerly called The Mill) and its bigger capacity will enable us to put more weekend tickets on sale. This new space will also be much better for you as audience members – with good disabled access, a high stage with excellent site lines and, best of all, a seated balcony for those of you that get weary feet during the festival!

What this late change does mean is that our costs have increased quite substantially and we won’t be able to benefit from the bar income at the O2 Institute as we used to at the old venue. So we would ask you to support us by making sure you use our bars based at XOYO as much as you can, as the income we generate there makes a huge contribution towards our costs in producing the festival.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to welcoming our global community in August, when we’re sure that you’ll have just as great a time as ever……
