Profound Sound Festival
Folkestone Fringe, Hot Salvation, & Phantom Limb introduce the sixth instalment of Folkestone’s experimental sound & music festival, which will take place for the very first time, in the spring of 2022.
Profound Sound continues to platform local and international experimental sonic talent, inspiring and creating opportunities within Folkestone, and provoking with the intent to bring about collective joy through immersion in music. This year’s edition will feature bold and highly anticipated headline acts from national and international artists, alongside plans that include intimate, DIY-esque workshops, performances, DJ sets, and interactive installations that both engage and playfully interact with our town and with those visiting and residing within it. The weekend programme of headline shows holds a real spectrum of variety, with the curators of the festival feeling collectively, “represent the soundtrack to what we should all be experiencing as sentient beings…living, listening and learning in 2022.” Additionally, the opportunity to experience diverse forms of music and sound art is being extended beyond April in order to develop and nourish the connections and learnings made at Profound Sound in Spring, as well as further from its community that has been cemented across the festival years (full year-long programme TBA).
Friday night line-up: Frankie, Senyawa, with an opening set by Colossal Squid // Saturday night line-up: claire rousay, —__–___ (More Eaze & Seth Graham), with an opening set by Cherif Hashizume, + more daytime acts & encounters TBA.
More about Profound Sound:
Folkestone Fringe works with local partners and curators to bring a three-day festival to the seaside town of Folkestone, that reaches across traditional forms of music to the fringes of sound-art, and which is loaded with some of the most diverse artists, practitioners, and workshops that exist in the world today. Profound Sound continues to grow and build with every iteration, through the means of bringing a truly alternative music/scene offering to the South East. Profound Sound believes in communities being able to come together, by promoting a collective joy that can be felt across all senses. It believes in the opportunities that can arise when the relationship between the stage and audience can be broken down and reclaimed, forging together local and national/international talent. The festival is an opportunity for musicians and performers from all backgrounds – as well as residents and visitors alike – to spend time together hearing, learning and trying new things.
