Supernormal is a festival like no other, providing a powerful antidote to the current malaise of festivals-as-big-business. Blurring the boundaries between art and music, performer and audience, it champions the iconoclastic and the experimental, allowing risks to be taken and leaps of imagination to occur. Somewhere in spirit between the original Glastonbury Fayre and an eccentric village fete, Supernormal is the alternative's alternative.

Better late than never… Thankyou all for your patience. We can now reveal the schedule(v1.3) for Supernormal 2012. We must stress that minor alterations are not impossible. With that in mind… have a looky (click to zoom):
That’s right folks. We’re thrilled to present “Supernormal: Love Each Other Or Die” in its entirety. The film was shot during the 2011 edition, by Andy Moore of Little Matey productions.
SUPERNORMAL is a festival like no other, an alternative even to the ‘alternative’ festival circuit. Entirely artist-led and resolutely non-commercial, SUPERNORMAL combines an acclaimed and avant-garde musical line up with a visual arts programme to match.

Will Cruickshank’s ‘Swing Harmonograph’ (one of the commissioned works for this year’s SUPERNORMAL Art and Music Festival) carries the artist’s romantic inventions to a typically playful, yet in fact deeply (and literally) moving end.
