Expect mushrooms springing up in a graveyard, dangerous sheep rampaging through the streets, and innovative AI techniques for you to experiment with. You might even have the chance to become the show, if you wish.

This year's festival features new professional work from all four home nations and cutting-edge Scottish premieres of international performances, as well as work from communities across Scotland.

SURGE is also introducing a new venue this year: Ramshorn Graveyard. Here, you can enjoy two more intimate performances in a quiet, secluded spot just a stone's throw from the bustling main festival site in Merchant City.
