Supernormal takes place over the first weekend in August

The now almost legendary Supernormal festival will take place between 5–7 August at Braziers Park in Oxfordshire.

This year’s edition will feature its usual selection of performances and activities but with a few extras added to the bill. The expanded programme includes a new collaboration series and an artist in residency programme made available to festival alumini. 1990s feminist zine GirlFrenzy will be participating, reuniting its founder Erica Smith and artist Rachael House with view to creating a new issue with the help of festival goers. It’ll be the zine’s first since 1999. Plus, Wire DJs Gustave and Shane will be operating the decks for the usual Wire Soundsystem slot.

The festival line-up includes: Aine O'Dwyer, Angela Rawlings, Ashtray Navigations, DJ Shitmat, Giant Swan, Guttersnipe, Heather Leigh, Goodiepal & Pals, Helm & Valentina Magaletti, Sophie Cooper, Delphine Dora, Normil Hawaiians, Justin Broadrick, The Ex, a collaboration between Lina Lapelyte, Angharad Davies and Graham Dunning, and many others.

The festival will take place between 5–7 August, and tickets cost £85 (including camping).
