Launch parties for next year's festival will feature sets from Xylouris White, Sex Swing and more

Supersonic are holding a launch party this weekend before their annual festival that will be held next year between June 16-18.

The parties this weekend will span across two days, from Friday November 4-5. Like Supersonic Festival itself, the party’s line-up includes artists that organisers Capsule seek to promote, such as Xylouris White, Sex Swing, Mothwasp, Giant Swan, Rattle, Kuro, Bismuth, Rainbow Grave and Stinky Wizzleteat. The launch party will be held in the Centrala Gallery space in Birmingham.

Ex-Easter Island Head’s Benjamin D. Duvall has also been added to the party’s Saturday line-up, where he’ll be featuring new work with prepared guitars and AM radios. Tickets are available for the launch party here. The line-up for Supersonic Festival in 2017 is to be announced shortly.
