From lectures to underground music

Sonic Acts brings together scientists, artists, theorists, musicians and composers for a series of performances, exhibitions, debates, masterclasses and other events. The typical festival programme (not the Academy) covers all the bases, with loads of live music performances, DJ sets, lectures, workshops and installations, lectures by leading lights in the scientific world, installations by up-and-coming artists and much more!

A festival of science, culture and experimentation

Recent developments in science provided the starting point for the festival as Sonic Acts celebrated the deeply-rooted human desire to occupy ourselves with mysteries. The arts and science share the facet of exploring the unknown and the unfamiliar, making them perfect festival partners.
