Colour Out of Space 2019

International Festival of
Sound and Art

Brighton 26th - 28th April 2019

Colour Out of Space – Brighton’s festival of international experimental music and art is back for an eighth edition from 26th – 28th April 2019: Three superabundant days of high sonic weirdness, performance and audio innovation that touch on everything from improvisation, noise, sound poetry, cassette collagists, avant-rockabillies, circuit bent electronics, deep listening minimalists, maximalists and all points in between.

A daytime arts trail will feature free installations and performances at Brighton landmarks including The Pepperpot, little known architectural wonders such as The Tarner Tower, and London Rd’s Open Market. For nighttime performances it’s back to the art school’s Sallis Benney Theatre (and garden).

Resonance FM will host a ‘Free University’ on Friday daytime (so arrive early) at Phoenix Brighton, and Onca have the first ever UK exhibition from Finnish multidisciplinary underground lynchpin Jan Anderzen. There’s workshops and films too! Full timetable coming very soon.

We recommend three day total COOS immersion. Early bird weekend passes are available now, with one day tickets to follow soon.
