Supernormal is a festival like no other, providing a powerful antidote to the current malaise of festivals-as-big-business.

Somewhere in spirit between the original Glastonbury Fayre and an eccentric village fete, Supernormal is the alternative's alternative.

Casting one’s mind back to last year’s festival brings up many a clouded memory. Amongst these, for plenty, will be the madness that ensued on the Saturday afternoon.
