A Sonic Soak

August 21st and 22nd, 2010.


Join a kaleidoscopic shoal of musicians, sound artists, orators, costumed performers, sculptures and local film makers in the echoing acoustics of the cavernous Govanhill Baths.


Take an experimental plunge into the depths of Govanhill's disused Edwardian swimming pool.

‘A Sonic Soak’ is an ambitious, celebratory and provocative audiovisual  experience set within this this unique B Listed historic building which was closed to the public in 2001.

Dive in over the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of August from 11am-8pm (Sat) and 1-8pm (Sun) and experience an eccentric arrangement of local musical and choral  talents. The Acts have been selected and the event programmed by renegade Glasgow sound and art collective 85A who assure you that there is no chlorine in the pool.

Entry to A Sonic Soak is free and safe for all ages. Refreshments available.
