Supersonic - This Weekend!

Now in its eighth year, this year’s Supersonic line-up is particularly exciting: a Napalm Death hometown performance, Michael Rother’s new supergroup Hallogallo 2010 (feat.

Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, Aaron Mullan from Tall Firs and Benjamin Curtis from School of Seven Bells) will be delivering an unforgettable performance, playing the music of NEU!, founders of Industrial Metal Godflesh, Michael Gira’s hugely influential NYC band Swans, Melt Banana, James Blackshaw, Factory Floor, King Midas Sound, plus lots of really interesting visual art and avant-garde performances from a really eclectic mix of artists and musicians (including a 7-hour installation of guitarists and pigeons using whistles to play harmonies from the pentatonic scale). The festival also offers a creative atmosphere and set of experiences beyond the core music programming, including Q&As, workshops, screenings, art installations, record stalls, tea and cake.
