Supernormal Festival Lineup Features 11 Paranoias, Coma Wall and More

Weirdos abound, it seems, but hey, that’s cool. If you wanna get together in a field in Oxfordshire and freak out for a weekend while all kind of folks do all kinds of whacky stuff, I can think of way worse ways to spend that time. In all seriousness, over the last couple years, the UK’s Supernormal Festival has built increasingly strong and wildly diverse lineups, and as this year’s features a heavy touch from Caravan of Whores, 11 Paranoias and a slew of others — Coma Wall, who are the acoustic alter ego of Undersmile, will also play — posting the lineup for anyone in the area who might be able to attend didn’t seem too far fetched.

If anyone’s going or has gone, I’d love to hear how the vibe is at one of these things. Less so the Disco Tent than in general, but still:

Supernormal is a festival like no other, providing a powerful antidote to the current malaise of festivals-as-big-business. Blurring the boundaries between art and music, performer and audience, it champions the iconoclastic and the experimental, allowing risks to be taken and leaps of imagination to occur. Somewhere in spirit between the original Glastonbury Fayre and an eccentric village fete, Supernormal is the alternative’s alternative.
