Sonics is produced by Hastings Fat Tuesday and was originally conceived by local artist Danny Pockets in 2015 (who sadly passed away in 2018) to bring together and showcase the underground and experimental art and music scenes in the town. It provided an opportunity for the wider Hastings and St. Leonards-on-Sea community to discover and experience the diverse range of music, art, film, installations and more, existing outside of the mainstream. Since then, the event has continued to grow and develop, moving onwards from a one-day session to a multi-venue event across the Hastings Fat Tuesday Music Festival weekend. Sonics 2022 will be the first time the event has stood alone as a unique festival of its own.

Sonics 2022 continues to build upon the success of three previous events held in the first half of the year, the locally focussed Sunday Sonics all-dayer during the Hastings Fat Tuesday Music Festival and two successful one-off shows with Dhangsha, Yao Bobby & Simon Grab, Codex Serafini & Slum Of Legs. The three-day October event presents a diverse and vital line-up ranging from internationally renowned and legendary live acts to cutting edge, underground musicians, artists and DJs.

The underlying commitment and focus of the Sonics team remains that of offering audiences an event that is open and accessible to all, diverse, exciting and most importantly fun.
