Full of Noises returns this August for a week of residencies, performances, installations and workshops in venues across Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria. This year’s festival falls into three distinct strands:

Friday 5th will see the Bluebird Cabaret Club on Holker St. host an evening of cutting edge electronic music featuring Dopplereffekt, Boxcutter, Lone, Anchorsong, Mr Sushi, Shengi and more.

Artists in residence AGF, Philip Jeck and Tetsuo Kogawa will be creating new work from our studio in Barrow Park to be presented at Barrow Island’s St John’s Church alongside performances from Tom Scott and Lee Gamble on Saturday 6th August.

FON will take over Barrow Park on the afternoons of Friday 5th and Sat 6th August with a series of FREE interactive installations including an electronically hacked Crazy Golf Course, a floating radio station housed in a giant Swan pedalo and work by young people from schools around South Cumbria as part of Sound and Music and Creative Futures Cumbria’s Audio Explorers project.
