Another wonderful, noisy, compelling weekend with the Supersonic Festival. I have, as ever come away with a list of music to hunt out, find out more about and listen to over and over again that I simply wouldn’t know about without this festival.
They have no projections and just three white lights shining towards the crowd from the back of the stage, simple and plain, it is all they need. It’s slow to draw you in, but the demonic dancing and faceless twitching figure grabs hold of you and you are lost. It’s like unwelcome memories of childhood nightmares that rise up in the middle of the night. Strangely compelling but not entirely welcome.
