Innovation on the intersection of art and music for a day-long treat
A hotbed of artistic innovation, Wysing Arts Centre, out in Bourn, is set to make waves once more this autumn with its boundary-pushing annual music festival. Celebrating the intersection of art and music, the event is now entering its ninth year, and was named by Vogue as one of the best independent festivals in the UK.
Taking place on 1 September from 1pm-1am, this year’s event will bring together some of the most exciting UK and international artists working today. Curated in collaboration with Camae Ayewa (Moor Mother) and Paul Purgas (Emptyset), the line-up features New York-based vocalist and producer Lafawndah, the sonic odysseys of Aïsha Devi, electronic noise artist Ewa Justka and multi-instrumentalist Laraaji.
The programme, say the organisers, has a thread of mysticism and spiritual energy running through it, “weaving through sonic and performative works of great emotional and political power. Wysing Polyphonic aims to reveal and celebrate the hidden energies and potentiality that flows through us all.”
Join the experimental fun for £30, and you can camp overnight for an extra £10.
