Preview: Waveform Festival 2011 – Eco-minded Psy-trance and Electronica
Waveform, the UK’s leading electronic music festival, is back and bigger, whilst maintaining that magic vibe we know you all love…and still green of course!
Waveform 2nd – 4th September 2011
Waveform 2011 is all about keeping the same wondrous vibe and cutting edge electronic music, whilst upping the conscious element in preparation for 2012. They have found a beautiful new site at Taunton Racecourse, in Somerset.
Waveform is back for its fifth birthday at a brand new location. With all the usual suspects and a whole new crowd to tantalise your music tastes. Waveform has a policy of picking a new area of the country every year and inviting local collectives to join in the fun. This way local promoters can experience the outdoors way and give their supporters an experience they’ll never forget.
Waveform is known and respected not only for its cutting edge dance but also being the only sustainable dance event in the UK: “We’re proud of our green credentials” says Bruce Elliott-Smith (director of Waveform,) “every year we try and bring just a little more to the event. We aim to educate by example. Show people it’s not hard to have a good time and become a little bit greener.”
This year’s Green Village is being hosted by the renowned group, Worldshift Media. There will also be a full programme of talks, workshops, saunas, showers, healing, therapies and organic food to feed the mind, body and soul in the Green Village. Inside the Green arena for 2011 we will have lots of exciting, new and innovative entertainment for you. During the day the Village really comes alive: “People are always keen to try out something new at a Festival, be it a massage, yoga or just sitting and listening to one of our workshops.” A yoga teacher explains with a smile on her face.
But dance is what Waveform is really all about and over the years they have grown into a respected, award winning event. Three names synonymous to the event are Tribe of Frog with their Psychedelic decor, UV & fluro backdrops and lighting, which set the scene for ground breaking Psy-trance. Archangel with its clean cut decor, top line DJs and a quality of sound unheard of at outdoor events. Bringing up the rear but by no means in last place is Alpha Omega, probably London’s premiere dance event. Nothing more needs to be said about these guys apart from WOW!
With many more stages, collectives & activities still to be announced, Waveform is promising to be one of this year’s ‘Can’t miss’ events. PsypressUK will be publishing the line-ups as soon as they are ready.
