Named last year as one of Vogue magazine’s best independent festivals, Wysing Arts annual music and arts extravaganza is forging a reputation for itself as the hottest ticket in town.
Now entering its sixth year, the event aims to celebrate the intersection of art and music, featuring just under 12 hours of performances, screenings and live music across the multiple stages at Wysing’s rural site in Bourn.
This year’s festival, which takes place on 5 September, will once again seek to showcase the best new music by women, queer and trans musicians and bands – this time exploring a theme of altered states and multiple identities.
On the bill you’ll find a diverse range of musical entertainment, which ranges from the post-pop-punky stylings of girl group Ravioli Me Away to the dense psychedelic sounds of DJ and producer James Holden. There will also be spellbinding visual art from Laura Buckley, who creates dazzling light installations, as well as a market place selling art and merchandise from experimental galleries, record labels and independent publishers.
The event runs from 12pm to 11.30pm, with space for camping available. Tickets cost £40 per person.
