Kids of Cloudspotting Takeover

Kids of Cloudspotting Takeover

You can’t plan a family friendly festival without making sure all the family is involved.  Our mini-advisers make sure that the activities we plan add a twist to the weekend featuring their favourite bits and spicing it up with some new surprises.  They also make sure that we add the elements to keep mum and dad happy too so that they can get on with the important task…..having fun! The Kids of Cloudspotting tell it how it is Our Kids of Cloudspotting are extremely well qualified to advise on what to include in our weekend programme and how we can improve on previous years activities.  Each of our special consultants have attended every single Cloudspotting Festival, seen it grow from it’s humble beginnings to the immersive festival it has become.  We have always valued their feedback and involved them in our festival planning and hope to meet their vision and exceed their expectations. Cloudspotting Kids Takeover We thought you might like to hear one of their industrious planning meetings.  One cannot doubt their dedication as they discuss all areas of the festival including music, activities, food and the location. Music Our festival enthusiasts know exactly what makes a fantastic live performance and they discuss in detail how they like their music to be multi-sensory, exciting visually as well audibly.  During their discussion they review their favourite Cloudspotting performances in the past as well as what they are looking forward to catching at the festival this year.  For full line-up details and to listen to some of the acts talked about, follow this link. Food From pizzas to milk-shakes and everything in-between is...

Live-In vehicles sort your tickets out without delay – we have only a couple of spaces left for vans! Choir A debut activity at the Festival this year is the advent of the Cloudspotting Peoples’ Choir. So if you like to sing and have always fancied having a go in a choir, this is a great opportunity. The Choir will be led by experienced choir master Rose Greenwood and will consist of three fun rehearsals on Friday (6pm), Saturday (2pm) and Sunday (1pm). Enrollers will learn a fabulous festival anthem and then perform to the audience on Sunday evening before Jesca Hoop. And that’s not the only way to make yourself a star of the festival. Baxter Rhodes will once again be running a songwriters’ workshop (which led to a main stage performance by the participants last year); Play-in-a-day, led by Jack Herbert (National Youth Theatre) will see our young stars act out their play in front of an audience on the Enchanted Forest stage; and our family friendly drumming workshop, led by More Music’s Bay Street Band on Saturday, will encourage those involved to perform as part of the Carnival parade as dusk falls.

Space Cassette DJ’s feat. Talos 4000 Talos 4000 is a peace enforcement machine created by Solsisum Systems to help establish order across the Disputed Worlds.  The rogue unit achieved sentience through advanced meta-programming and was intercepted by the space-faring band of visionaries, Henge.  Since that fortuitous encounter, the amicable automaton has been spreading messages of love through the application of planet Earth’s finest acid rave music.  The affable android regularly brings a warm, fuzzy feeling to the crowds at Space Cassette and has been known to catalyse euphoria at terrestrial festivals such as Bluedot, Solfest and BeatHerder.

Jesca Hoop returns to Cloudspotting Festival

Jesca Hoop returns to Cloudspotting Festival

We are chuffed to bits to welcome JESCA HOOP back to Cloudspotting , her first appearance at the festival since 2013. “A boisterously declarative album that’s urgent and at times seditious” (Pitchfork) 2017 has started with a bang for Jesca.  Her new LP ‘Memories Are Now’ was released in February on the legendary Sub Pop label.  It is a wonderfully dexterous collection of songs, exhibiting her wit and songwriting power.  It is also hook-laden, powerful and at times visceral and haunting, garnering excitable reviews from across the board.  Well worth waiting for 🙂 Cloudspotting Sundays are gloriously chilled days reflected by a more acoustic edge to the music programme. With that in mind, Jesca joins a gaggle of leading female artists on top of their game.  Confirmed to star on Sunday – This is The Kit, Holly Macve, Hannah Peel, and Rioghnach Connolly of The Breath.  This stellar line-up of female talent brings our weekend of excellent music and art to a conclusion of fully satisfied proportions.
