Sonic Transmissions

Founded and curated by Ingebrigt Håker Flaten and presented by Self Sabotage Records, Sonic Transmissions Festival is a three-day showcase presenting a far-reaching spectrum of genres, such as free jazz, post-punk, world music, experimental hip-hop, improvised music, and more. Sonic Transmissions Festival was born out of a passion to bring audiences and musicians from different communities together to collaborate, experience, and explore the possibilities of what a music festival can express to audiences today.​

Sonic Transmissions Festival III (14 - 16 Sept., 2017) is Austin’s only improvisational music festival without boundaries and takes place Thursday, September 14 through Saturday, September 16 across four eastside venues: Barracuda, Kick Butt Coffee, Kenny Dorham’s Backyard, and Victory Grill.


Now in its third year, Sonic Transmissions Festival incorporates a fantastic lineup representing a diverse range of musical styles incorporating aspects of punk rock, improvised music, futuristic hip-hop, jazz, free-jazz, psychedelic cumbia and more.
