Supersonic Festival is a yearly music festival in Birmingham featuring a combination of music, art, film and and other crafts. It continues to join boundaries between music and art, by inviting people to engage with both through a programme of avant garde sound and performance as well as hands-on workshops taking place across Digbeth, Birmingham in a series of converted factory warehouses and art galleries.
Capsule, the organisation behind Supersonic Festival, are curators, promoters and fans of cutting edge music, revealing the indescribable connections between contemporary music and art, crafting extraordinary events for adventurous audiences. Capsule’s passion for genre bending sound and performances is at the heart of all their events – there are not many places in Birmingham where you can listen to funeral doom, prog, folk, avant jazz and grindcore in one weekend.
2012 marks Supersonic’s 10th Year as a festival.
