Site Festival 1st-30th April

he Site Festival has moved to April this year with a wide spectrum of exhibitions and events spread throughout the month. The Open Studios will still be taking place in the two middle weekends of May.

The festival has its roots in contemporary visual arts but over the years there has been a blurring of boundaries with many cross overs with music, film, poetry, and theatre. This is reflected within the five week programme which kicks off with The Voyeurs, Brickhouse, Top Nice/Pathfinder and Andy Holden’s collaborative installation with the Bohman Brothers and Richard Thomas in John Street and the Goods Shed. Will Gregory Moog Ensemble will beheadlining in Week 4 for the Resound weekend of experimental music.

Keep an eye on the website and emails for updates. You can access all events online through facebook and
