Supersonic Festival 2023: Backxwash, Deerhoof and Oxbow among the newest lineup additions
As the intense celebration of its 20th Anniversary draws near, the internationally recognised Supersonic Festival unveils a few more names that will take part in the bash and that carry on the festival’s desire for sonic exploration. To previously announced artists such as Lankum, Godflesh, Divide & Dissolve, Ragana, Big Brave and Jessica Moss, now joins the amazing Zambian-Canadian rapper and producer Backxwash, performing her first and only UK performance as a Supersonic Festival exclusive, as well as the ecstatic quartet of unruly avant pop Deerhoof, and the inimitable noise rock four piece Oxbow. Also confirmed is the debut live performance of Silver Moth, an atmospheric noise rock collective comprised of members from Mogwai, Abrasive Trees, Prosthetic Heads and more, and Ondata Rossa, a brand-new experimental supergroup of epic proportions comprised of Valentina Magaletti (Vanishing Twin, Moin, Holy Tongue), Agathe Max, Dali De Saint Paul (HARRGA) and Yoshino Shigihara (Yama Warashi) with 16mm film footage as part of the performance. Last but by no means least, we have internationally celebrated composer, performer, band leader, saxophonist, sound experimentalist and mixed-media practitioner Matana Roberts, and hip hop and neoclassical experimentalists Infinity Knives & Brian Ennals, as well as Elvin Brandhi, Širom, Total Luck and DJ Bus Replacement Service. A few more names, alongside workshops, talks and more are still left to be unveiled, so keep your eyes peeled for further announcements.
Supersonic Festival 2023 takes place in Birmingham, UK, on September 1st-3rd. Three-day tickets are now available for 160 pounds and can be purchased online via the festival’s website, here.
