Supersonic Kids Gigs are designed for families as a way of introducing children to experimental music – BIG sounds for little people! This show takes place as a Live Stream on Zoom. Hen Ogledd will be singing songs from their new album Free Humans – which explores themes of love, friendship, sewers, the nature of time, human stench, and the thrills of wild swimming. Expect swirls of ravishing melodies, hallucinatory textures and bonkers rhythms. This final Kids Gig of 2020 will be hosted once more by everyone’s favourite alt-rocker and psycho-storyteller, Anna Palmer from Dorcha.

The Newcastle-based maximalists whose heavy riffs, raw power and rancour have blazed a trail across many a Supersonic line-up, will be hosting this classic game to bring a bit of a joy to the rather turbulent year we’ve had – all in aid of The Trussell Trust, who support a nationwide network of food banks working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. Join the boys via a live stream on Zoom and play from the comfort of your home. Expect more hilarious facts from Matt Baty and number-calling chaos from Adam Sykes. There will of course be some crackin’, lip-smackin’ prizes to be won from Purity Brewery, a Supersonic goody bag AND a surprise treat from the PIGS! *ALL proceeds from tickets will be donated to The Trussell Trust.
Hen Ogledd: from The Star & Shadow Exclusive live broadcast Sunday 20 December, 20:00 GMTFor tickets + more info https://supersonicfestival.com/event/hen-ogledd-from-the-star-shadow/
Hen Ogledd is the wild, inimitable band project of musicians Richard Dawson, Rhodri Davies, Dawn Bothwell and Sally Pilkington. “Hen Ogledd are so excited at the thought of beaming into your living rooms for a couplet of special streamed shows, from the Star & Shadow in Newcastle – one gig especially for the kids, the other for the fully-growns. It’ll be our first chance to share in person (sort of) the music of Free Humans, and we are so happy to be doing this in collaboration with our friends at Supersonic Festival – that most crucial and brilliant hub of music and cultural light.” – Richard Dawson Following their invigorating performance at Supersonic 2019, Hen Ogledd return for a special online broadcast. Expect a psychedelic voyage, that ebbs and flows between outer-space, lochs, toxic gas-emitting bogs and celestial plains. Also available to add to ticket orders is a stunning Hen Ogledd A3 3-colour print poster taken from their album artwork. There’s only a limited edition run of 50.
