We are still reeling from the stunning success of Futuresonic 2009. Our award winning festival drew an attendance of 75,000, and featured a huge range of incredible artistic projects including many world- firsts. It is thrilling to be in the middle of a quantum leap, and such an incredible year has given us huge momentum leading into 2010.

We are proud to announce the launch of a major new international award, The FutureEverything Awards, and after 15 years at the leading edge of art, music and ideas, Futuresonic is now named FutureEverything, to reflect the greater scope and ambition of the festival.

The date of the inaugural FutureEverything festival is 12-15 May 2010, with a series of launch events during October 2009, and nominations for the Award are open from 1st September 2009.
