The SOTU Festival (Sounds of the Underground) is a music festival and cultural foundation organising events centering on and celebrating some unique aspect of the global independent music and art community and its diy and counter cultural traditions. The festival takes place in Amsterdam (the Netherlands, since 2012) yearly around April. In 2014 there was an edition in Lithuania.
The organisation behind SOTU Festival, are curators, promoters and fans of cutting edge music. Capsule’s passion for genre bending sound and performances is at the heart of all their events.
SOTU aims to ensure quality every year by working with curators, collectives and organizations whom have proven themselves as genuine contributors to the local scene. It is important that this festival reflects the knowledgable and hard working underground culture that exists in the Netherlands and abroad. SOTU’s fundamentally do-it-yourself approach invites the organizations to join creative forces, form a collective and make this festival happen.
