Ashley Paul is one of the artists so far confirmed to appear at Counterflows 2017
Glasgow's Counterflows festival have set the ball rolling for their 2017 edition. Taking place across the city (while promising “next-to-no scheduling clashes!”), artists confirmed include Ashley Paul, Farmers Manual, Glorias Navales, The Modern Institute, Svitlana Nianio, Olimpia Splendid, Takahiro Kawaguchi & Utah Kawasaki, Mark Ernestus' Ndagga Rhythm Force and Midori Takada.The artists, say the festival organisers, are “bound together by their questioning spirit and refusal of easy categorisation. [...] We believe that the underground belongs to a myriad of voices and is best engaged with when we come together, share ideas, break down borders, challenge hierarchies and push boundaries.”
The final programme will include performances, specially commissioned projects, one-off collaborations, intimate shows, clubnights and talks. And Counterflows promise some surprises too.
Counterflows will take place between 6–9 April. Tickets are on sale now.
