AC Projects is the parent company behind Counterflows, a Glasgow-based festival dedicated to unusual and cutting-edge underground music. Whether born out of the likes of so-called DIY scenes, the internet or geographically remote communities, we believe that the underground belongs to a myriad of voices and is best engaged with when we come together, share ideas, break down borders, challenge hierarchies, push boundaries and quite simply have a lot of fun in the process.
With Counterflows 2017 we are tasked to take the festival to even higher degrees of aural intensity andpleasure. The continuing drive to challenge what Counterflows is and can do is paramount to our mission. Ostensibly, Counterflows is a music festival, gathering artists from different disciplines to perform in and across Glasgow but over the last five years we have been busy building from this simple platform to create an open forum for ideas collaborating with many like-minded: artist, festivals, organisations and communities.
The festival programme features a slew of international acts, as well as some of the best new music from the Scottish underground, with performances taking place across a carefully picked selection of spaces/venues in Glasgow. We are proud to host the festival in this city and hope the festival feels in some way an extension and celebration of the activity and community at the heart of it.
