Birmingham's music festival for curious audiences
Since the first Supersonic back in 2003, the festival has built a worldwide reputation for presenting the best in experimental music. From metal to folk, progressive rock to dubstep, Supersonic is always surprising and always inspiring.

This year it leaves its old home, The Custard Factory, for two spaces in Digbeth: The Crossing, and Boxxed. Highlights include the Will Gregory Moog Ensemble's opening night concert, which features members of Goldfrapp and Portishead, a headline set by post-punk pioneers The Pop Group, and a performance by the captivating American sound artist Holly Herndon.

Alongside the music is a series of talks, exhibitions, and market stalls. Supersonic Kids Gig aims to introduce children to experimental music and Digbeth Delights will showcase some of Birmingham's best independent art spaces, through an afternoon of avant-garde performances, workshops and talks.

Attracting audiences from across the world to Birmingham's industrial and creative heartland, this year's Supersonic Festival looks set to be as unpredictable, challenging and brilliant as ever.
