After a hugely successful, artistically exciting and game changing 10 years, Capsule are using this milestone as an opportunity to re imagine Supersonic Festival. The festival will return in April 2014, in a new format, at an exciting new venue, with experimental new music and art remaining at its heart.
It’s been a wonderful decade of adventurous music, beginning in 2003 with a one-day event featuring Coil and LCD Soundsystem. Last year’s anniversary event encompassed a weekend of installations, workshops, talks, films, new commissions, and live performances with Kim Gordon, the Oxbow Orchestra, Penny Rimbaud and many more.
We’re enormously grateful for the loyal support of our audience, and we hope you will join us 25-27 April for Supersonic Festival’s next chapter.
And while you wait, Capsule are producing ‘Bring to Light’, a weekend of performances 25-27 October as part of the Library of Birmingham opening season. This will see performances from visual artist turned sonic performer Dinos Chapman, South Africa’s Shangaan Electro, the ‘brain pulse music’ of Masaki Batoh, songstress Josephine Foster, Robedoor, and more. This event has very limited capacity and tickets are available via www.theticketsellers.co.uk
