Welcome to Ramsgate's Festival of Sound!

What began as part of the Ramsgate Festival in 2018 has evolved into a standalone event in itself. The Ramsgate Festival of sound celebrates the incredible history, landscapes, architecture and people of Ramsgate, Kent. Taking place this year between August 27th and September 5th 2021, we are confident we can bring Ramsgate a suitable sound 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 on the artists and their installations can be found here.

We always bring a culmination of events to Ramsgate suitable for a wide range of audiences. We know you’ll find something for you, find more details on our events here, or check out the amazing installations that will be taking part in our Sonic Trail here.

We’re constantly working on and building 2021’s festival vision, to keep up with this vision you can visit our blog 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 regularly monitor the government’s regulations regarding live events, and adapt proceedings accordingly to ensure everyone’s health and safety. For now, you can be sure we will do our best to bring you the safest and best festival of sound we can!
