Welcome to the festival fold, Kaleidoscope Festival: a new music and arts one-dayer which will be taking over Alexandra Palace on Saturday July 21.
Musically, it’s set to boast a credible set of seasoned festie faves. The Flaming Lips will be zorbing their way to the top of the bill, while a solid supporting cast including Ghostpoet, Mystery Jets and The Go! Team will be propping them up.
But away from the gloriously mad sounds of Wayne Coyne and co, Kaleidoscope will also be presenting a whole host of audio-visual treats to separate it from the masses.
Across the Ally Pally complex (areas of which, we’re told, will be open to the public for the first time), the festival will host spoken word and comedy from the likes of Dr. John Cooper Clarke and Katherine Ryan, DJs including The 2 Bears and Norman Jay, performance and theatre, plus some designated family fun to keep the small ones entertained.
Promising to provide 'curious happenings in hidden corners’, let’s hope Kaleidoscope is as much of a technicolour trip as its title suggests.
