Sonica is a year-round touring programme dedicated to world-class visual sonic arts, punctuated by an 11-day biennial festival in Glasgow and a biennial long weekend at Kings Place, London. We present exceptional international artists alongside emerging Scottish talent in collaboration with renowned co-producers and venues.

Sonica was launched in Glasgow in November 2012 at Tramway and has toured to Australia, Austria, Brazil, Denmark, France, Indonesia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Slovenia, South Korea, Sweden and across the UK.
