Glasgow international

Festival 2016



Glasgow International 2016 is celebrating its opening weekend with the contemporary music festival Counterflows.


Now in its fifth year, this is a festival for the curious. It investigates what underground art is and isn’t and what it can be. It asks these questions and others and celebrates the desire for exploration. It offers a renaissance palate of sound. This year’s line-up pushes the Counterflow ethos even further. Artists and musicians taking part include Green Dome, Graham Lambkin, Astor, Inga Copeland, Cüneyt Sepetçi, Pat Thomas, Antanas Dombrovskij & Gaile Gruciute, Chelpa Ferro, Aby Vulliamy, Sensational, Billy Bao, Mette Rasmussen and Rian Treamor.

Featured artist Zeena Parkins, a pioneer of contemporary harp performance and practice, is performing throughout the festival in various venues and formats. Central to her Counterflows residency is her first UK performance of The Lace Project where she’s joined by her band Green Dome (Ryan Sawyer and Ryan Ross Smith) and local players.
