"Sonica makes it something of a mission to place image and sound on an equal footing."

2019 showcases more Scottish talent than ever before, as well as including a host of exceptional international artists from Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Catalonia, France, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Quebec, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland. 


“A dizzying array of research and ideas, and a dedication to new and never-before seen techniques and processes.”


Sonica, produced by Cryptic, is an 11 day biennial festival in Glasgow, dedicated to world class visual sonic arts, presenting exceptional international artists alongside emerging UK talent in diverse venues city-wide.
