Ice skating, extravagant fireworks, grandiose gigs, the World Ping Pong Championships... The mighty Alexandra Palace has a lot of strings to its cultural bow, and this year it’s adding another in the form of a new one-day music and arts festival, Kaleidoscope. Details of the newly announced event are still thin on the ground, but a few nuggets of info about the general vibe have been released.
We’re promised a ‘world where music, performance, theatre and comedy embrace in a collision of beautiful noise, brilliant ideas and brazen colour,’ as Ally Pally opens its gates to a ‘vibrant and eccentric cast of performers.’ So there you go. It also sounds like a pretty experiential affair, as revellers will be able to ‘wander through curious happenings in hidden corners, become the story in never seen places, dance to sounds in re-imagined spaces.’
You can even do some of your wandering alfresco, as the massive outdoor park areas will also be yours to explore, as well as the cavernous indoor spaces – maybe leave a trail of breadcrumbs before you start exploring.
In terms of music, the line-up hasn’t been announced yet, but we’ll bring you further updates as they’re released.
Kaleidoscope takes place on July 21 at Alexandra Park & Palace. Visit: www.kaleidoscope-festival.com for more details.
