Everyone's Instagramming: the rainbow labyrinth at Colourscape Music Festival

By Stephanie Hartman

From the outside, Colourscape is not a thing of beauty, but what exists inside is. Transforming an unremarkable chunk of Clapham Common once a year, Colourscape Music Festival is a kaleidoscopic feast for the eyes, holding nearly an acre of tunnels used by Eye Music Trust to create an environment in which events linking music, colour, light and movement can take place. Originally created by artist Peter Jones in the early ’70s, the air-inflated structures are a maze of coloured chambers illuminated by natural daylight, with visitors donning cloaks that change hue as they move through the labyrinth. This year’s festival focuses on unusual instruments and spaces.

Find Colourscape Music Festival on Clapham Common until September 24.
