supersonic festival




Its time for the day tickets/line ups to be announced for this year's Supersonic festival. The exact times have yet to be released.

Additionally, Supersonic have announced two more musicians to the bill and details of the final creative workshop. Capsule are absolutely unstoppable! Unfortunately due to health reasons, ZU93 are unable to play Supersonic this year.

Article continues below...



Supersonic are very happy to announce US bassist/composer/performer/founding member of the Minutement/my personal hero Mike Watt. He has performed in fIREHOSE, Dos and many other solo bands as well as a sideman bassist for Porno For Pyros, J Mascis and The Fog and currently (since 2003) Iggy and the Stooges. For Supersonic he will be performing his music from his deeply personal punk rock opera and with him are his 'Missingmen' Tom Watson (guitar) and Raul Morales (drums).

And from one end of the musical scale to the other, iconAclass have been added to the line-up. iconAclass is the new project from MC/producer Will Brooks best known as dälek. His newest solo project sees him maintaining the gritty view of boom-bap he is know for, while returning to his roots. Performing songs from his new release, For the Ones which is pure hip-hop - hypnotic heavy beats serve as more than just a backdrop for this MC, they focus a spotlight squarely on the lyrics, and iconAclass has a lot on his mind!

As well as absorbing mind-bending music, Supersonic have packed the festival with plenty of other workshops, films and exhibitions to keep our brains well nourished across the weekend. The final workshop they have announced is absolutely perfect for people with an interest in screen printing, whether experienced or not, it is a t-shirt screen printing workshop run by the independent business Get A Grip. This is a superb opportunity for people to get the creative juices flowing. Check out the website for more information.

As a reminder of some of the previous workshops... Imperfect Cinema invite you to take part in a Super-8 workshop and document your time at the festival, recordings will then be included in a performance/screening encompassing film, field recordings and an opportunity to share your personal festival experience.

Also, the Dirty Electronics workshop 'Mute Synth' - The Mute Synth is a noise based device that utilises feedback and explores the relationship between artwork and circuit board. Participants will begin on the workbench, devising the instrument, and move to the stage to explore the instrument and perform through it. Spaces for all workshops are limited and will sell out quickly, book your place asap by contacting admin@capsule.org.uk.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
