Supersonic Festival, Birmingham’s annual showcase for all things experimental and avant-garde, have announced a number of new additions to the line-up including the return of DJ Scotch Egg/Drum Eyes who went down a storm in 2009. Also confirmed are Klaus Kinski, grind/punk act Selfless (featuring members of Fukpig and Mistress) grime/dub electronica act DrumCunt, Spanish doom band Orthodox and Modulate as well as two exclusive music documentary screenings; a tour-diary of avant rockers Oxbow entitled ‘Still Before’, and ‘Blood, Sweat + Vinyl: DIY in the 21st Century’. Organisers Capsule comment;


“[the film] focuses on Hydrahead, Neurot, and Constellation and shows historic documentation of these fiercely independent labels and the bands they support, not only that but it deals with the important relationship of artwork and music as well as inspiring audiences with direct interviews about how these labels continue to maintain their independence. This particular film brings me so much personal pride, I am very excited that Supersonic are able to share it with you.”


Those wanting to try their hand at something new can join in one of the workshops on offer, including a Super-8 workshop run by Imperfect Cinema where participants are invited to document their personal festival experiences which will then be screened in a special performance. Also announced is a Dirty Electronics workshop ‘Mute Synth’. Spaces for both workshops are limited, book your place by contacting For full details visit


Supersonic Festival takes place on 21st – 23rd October 2011 at the Custard Factory in Digbeth, Birmingham.
