Help Us to Bring You Supersonic Festival 2015!

Since 2003, dynamic and innovative arts producer Capsule has brought you Supersonic Festival. Supersonic Festival is an internationally-renowned experimental music and arts festival with genre-bending sound and performance at its heart.

Over the years, Supersonic Festival is privileged to have garnered an incredibly loyal audience. We always put audiences at the centre of our vision and love nothing more than bringing you exciting and innovative programmes. 

Last year, Supersonic Festival sold out in record time, and now we’re calling on you to support us in bringing you this year’s festival. Whether you’ve been to every Supersonic that ever was or this year you’ll be dipping your toes into our welcoming waters for the first time, if you love what we do, we ask for you to support us in our ambitious aims to continue to bring you unmissable line-ups.

To our loyal audience, you make us what we are; please help us to make Supersonic Festival 2015 happen! 

We released our first wave of artists on Friday 13th February. Visit our website to read about the artists and listen to their music, and keep checking in with us here and via our social media sites to discover new additions to the line up over the next few months.

If our bustling Festival Marketplace is anything to go by, we know that our audience has an eye for the unique, the well-crafted and the handmade. In the light of this, we have created a set of Limited Edition Willy Wonka-style Supersonic Golden Tickets, available for you to purchase on this page only, featuring some very special items. 

By purchasing (and, if you like, donating a little extra), you will be contributing to our goal of raising £20,000, which will help us to bring you the best festival that we possibly can.

Risks and challenges

Capsule has an excellent record of successfully producing Supersonic Festival over many years. The festival is a complex event but we have the right professional team in place to ensure that every aspect runs smoothly.

Of course, things can go wrong; very occasionally artists are unable to fulfil their performance at the festival due to circumstances beyond anybody's control. In this rare instance we would make alternative arrangements for a replacement performance and/or a rescheduled show. We also have all the necessary Public Liability insurance that is required to run a large scale event.

NB: Those who purchase tickets will be emailed a code, which will be redeemed at the Festival Box Office. As stated in our ticket descriptions, items are to be collected from the Festival other than in exceptional circumstances, where we can arrange postage of items, cost charged to the donor.

    Technical Ecstacy

    Donate £500 and we will worship you as our pagan deity of Supersonic Festival. Well, not quite, but to be honest this is better! In honour of the super special Supersonic supporter who can dig this deep, we offer you something that money can’t usually buy. As well as a Four Day Earlybird Festival Pass, we invite one lucky individual to spend a day in the Moog Lab whilst it is installed in Birmingham. The lab consists of a priceless collection of rare Moog synthesisers of every imaginable shape, size and sound. It is on loan from America and is to be installed in Parkside for two weeks in early June, especially for Supersonic Festival. You will be able to experiment all day on this incredible collection, a rare opportunity to play with electronic equipment of this provenance, quality and scale. We really wish that we could have this one, but that would be a little self-defeating wouldn’t it? We will also thank you personally in this year’s Supersonic Festival brochure.
    (The Moog Lab day must be arranged with us in advance, to happen during the two weeks in which the Lab is with us in Birmingham)
