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. Our festival took place this year between August 27th and September 5th 2021, and it was a real success. A huge thank you to every single person who helped to make it the event it has now evolved into!

Our Sonic Trail is where sound artists create inventive and immersive site-specific works in and around the town.

We always bring a culmination of events to Ramsgate suitable for a wide range of audiences. We know you’ll find something for you, most events are free with a few exceptions and we even have events for the babies of Ramsgate! We’re away working on next year’s event, but do sign up to our mailing list to be kept up to date with all things festival.

We’re constantly working on and building our 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.

Be sure to sign up to our mailing list to keep up to date with all the latest festival news including exciting partnerships, events, talks, and more. It’s the easiest way to get news delivered straight to your inbox, no work, pure simplicity (rest assured, we keep all your data under lock and key so it’s never shared). You can signup here, or in the footer of every page on our website.

@mariannedissard: Sunny weekend in #ramsgate… but last week was thorny. Fence took a beating, but fence still standing! Changed, altered, maybe even more striking. @ramsgatefest @ramsgaterecorde @ramsgateweek @ramsartsbarge @we_love_thanet @PioneeringEK
