Submerge 2016

Welcome to Submerge, a hybrid programme of contemporary and immersive arts, bringing together live performance, audiovisual art and electronic music. Submerge is for the adventurous and inquisitive; it is designed to immerse, engulf and consume audiences. The lineup has been curated to contain a diverse and eclectic programme of electronic and experimental music, international performance art, cutting edge digital and audiovisual art and DJs. We’re proud to welcome artists from France, Italy, Canada, New Zealand, Congo and the USA to Bristol, alongside amazing local and national talent.


Submerge 2016 will take you on a journey into the watery depths, at four extraordinary locations across Bristol. Join us in the hallowed halls of established institutions, and in the unexplored and underground. Take a deep breath and dive into the dark waters of our drowned world, before coming back to the surface, gasping for air.

Submerge is the first programme of its kind in Bristol, presenting local and international musicians and artists who wouldn’t normally be shown together, and who are rarely seen in the Southwest.

Submerge has been made possible with the support of Arts Council England, Watershed, Colston Hall, Mayk, Theatre Bristol and Crack Magazine.
