Welcome to Ramsgate's Festival of Sound!

What began as part of the Ramsgate Festival in 2018, has grown to be an event in itself, celebrating the incredible history, landscapes, architecture and people of Ramsgate. Taking place this year between August 29th and September 5th, we are confident we can bring Ramsgate a suitable festival for the current climate.

Making a return this year will be the Sonic Trail, where sound artists create inventive and immersive site-specific works in and around the town. Further details will be announced at a later date, but it’s sure to be memorable as always.

As we build and create 2021’s vision, we will update this website with all the details of our events and what else is on offer. Visit our news page for regular features and updates.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our Angel Founding Members, Ramsgate Town Council and The Arts Council of England for their support . Their all important funding helps maintain the festival and provide financial support to a team of artists and production staff in a year when many have seen their paid work decimated.

We will continue to monitor the government’s regulations regarding live events and adapt as needs be to ensure and maintain everyone’s health and safety. For now, you can be sure we will do our best to bring you the safest and best events we can!
