Art at Clockenflap 2015 will be revolving around the theme “The Cosmic and the Communal“. Organizers are promising a giant pyramid structure dubbed The Magnet Palace, which will serve as a multi-use experimental performance space with sonic-visual kinetic installations. In layman terms, it’s a giant flashy thingymajig that will act as the perfect backdrop for your Instagram selfies. Film junkies can also enjoy a selection of short feature films and animations at the Cinema Silenzio tent. If you’re looking for more old school, classic entertainment, Club Minky can provide that in the form of vaudeville cabaret, circus acrobatics and comedy shows.
Can’t find anyone to babysit your kids while you bust a move to Clean Bandit? Why not take them with you? Children aged 12 can enjoy all festivities for free, and will be kept entertained by stage shows, song performers, DIY workshops and other interactive games.
Organizers are promising a bigger and better array of food and beverage this year, in the hopes of providing a spectacle for your eyes, ears, and mouth.
As always, ticketing will be segmental, with prices going up gradually as more acts join the line up. Discounted student / under 18 tickets will also be available this year. Visit Ticketflap for ticketing details.
We cannot wait.
