We’ve spent the last year investigating and challenging what Counterflows is and should be. From its foundation as an experimental music festival Counterflows has evolved, sharing space for diverse voices, radical ideas and community joy. Fighting the creeping isolationist agenda and loom of age-old hierarchies, our desire to work locally and internationally – to hold onto and mutually nurture everyone’s capacity to be deeply human, deeply connected and deeply alive – is stronger than ever.

Through live events, clubs, discussions, film screenings and hang-outs – woven through some of the best spaces in Glasgow – Counterflows aims to enact a human flow and provide an inclusive, fun space to engage with important marginal music.
