One Month To Go

SuperByte 2014 is just one month away, so we thought we’d make a bit on an update post.

Our final line up is right here, and we’re incredibly stoked at how many amazing local and international artists are playing this year.  We’ve just published our full schedule here, and we’re now confirming our last few market and expo people before adding them to the site. As ever, we’re working with a load of other organisations this year – some old friends, some new faces and we’re expecting this year’s SuperByte to be the best yet. Quite a goal after 2013, but we’re nothing if not ambitious!

The capacity of The Zoo is about 20% smaller than the capacity we set for Jabez Clegg last year (we had to move venues as our old one closed), so we’d definitely advise you to buy tickets in advance if you’re able to. Advance tickets will be available upto and including Thursday the 11th of September and they’ll cost more on the door.

Huge thanks to everyone who’s supported us so far. We’ll see you in a month.

SB2014 Official Tee Design

Here it is, the official SuperByte 2013 tee design by KeFF.

We’ll be getting 100 of these printed and they’ll be available at the festival itself, then online afterwards if we have any left. Get them early.

WeeklyTreats – August 2014

We’re excited and happy to be curating August for the fantastic annual chipmusic project WeeklyTreats!

Each week for the next month, we’ll be presenting a new track from a SuperByte 2014 artist in the lead up to the festival along with information on the artist, and a little on why we picked them for that week.

Stay up to date by bookmarking the WeeklyTreats website or by following them on FaceBook here.

Dan Hett

A bit of a last minute announcement, but we’re stoked to welcome the awesome Dan Hett to the SuperByte lineup on pre-party visuals!

Hailing from the rainy streets of Manchester, Dan is a creative coder, visual artist, and all-round programming heretic who specialises in firing brightly-coloured flashing pixels directly into your retinas.

Mounting a one-man crusade against boring programming neckbeards (they’re just no fun), Dan causes colourful noisy trouble with his code at every opportunity: making videogames at extremely speeds, live-coding reactive visuals at raves, and generally destroying and rebuilding software until it does something interesting.

At the SuperByte pre-party Dan will be live-coding projected visuals completely from scratch, creating evolving visualisations powered by beats, bass and algorithms.
