Two new additions to the Brummie fest.
Supersonic Festival has added laptop-manipulating big-thinker Holly Herndon to its impressively diverse line-up, where the 4AD signee will perform music from her forthcoming album Platform.
The Birmingham festival has also announced a partnership with the Moog Sound Lab and Birmingham City University to host a temporary residency offering artists the chance to experiment and create with analogue synthesis and effects. Interested synth tinkerers can sign up viaSupersonic’s website.
This year’s Supersonic takes place from June 11-14 at The Crossing in Digbeth. The line-up also includes Brighton producer, composer and artist Gazelle Twin, Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory and his Moog Ensemble, Liturgy, Richard Dawson, The Pop Group and Wildbirds and Peacedrums. The weekend’s interactive activities include a makers workshop from Bees in a Tin, a Dirty Electronics workshop inviting audience members to build a 3D sound object, and a pedestrian speaker symphony to be carried through the streets by participants as part of a commission by Circumstance.
General tickets are now on sale – find out more from Supersonic.
