A Festival Of Underground, Experimental & International Music
April 2021
More Information Coming Soon

Tickets & info


Counterflows is a four day international festival of radical, diverse and thought-provoking music, presented with warmth, fun and inclusivity across some of Glasgow’s best spaces during 4th-7th of April 2019

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.


The following festival and day passes are available

4 Day Full Festival Pass

Thursday Day Pass

Friday Day Pass

Saturday Day Pass

Sunday Day Pass – SOLD OUT

Individual events passes can be found in the timetable >>


We endeavour to make the festival as relaxed and inclusive as possible:

  • Everyone is welcome
  • The social rules are relaxed, so you can sit, dance or stand and you can leave the venue and come back at anytime.
  • There will be ear defenders available at the door of each event.
  • If you are experiencing anything that makes you uncomfortable inform a member of staff and we will help

We create the space together at the festival. It should go without saying – let’s be good to one another.

If there’s anything we can do to make the festival easier for you to attend and enjoy, please let us know and we’ll do our best to help. hi@counterflows.com
