Sonic Acts Festival 2019 is about to begin. To make sure you’re all set for your visit, here is some useful information. If you have a practical query, you can also check out our FAQ page for answers to frequently asked questions.

A few change have been made in the programme for Sonic Acts Festival.

The starting times of the lectures in the first session of tomorrow’s Conference and Film Programme have changed: Rosi Braidotti’s talk will start at 10:00 and Rick Dolphijn starts at 11:00.

On Saturday evening, the Expanded Experience has been moved to 21:00, instead of 22:00 as communicated in the Programme Booklet.

Furthermore, we want to remind you to arrive on time at the programmes to be assured of a seat and entrance. This is especially important for tonight’s Festival Opening with Acousmonium, starting at 19:30, and for the festival closing Time Time Time this Sunday at 20:30.
