Read on to see how you could win tickets to one of the most exciting festivals of the year
The funkiest festival in the West is back! Shindig kickstarts the summer (23–26 May), bringing a packed programme of entertainment for all ages. The line-up includes Estelle, Ozomatli feat Chali 2na, Benjamin Zephaniah and the Revolutionary Minds, and on the DJ front there’s Kenny Dope and DJ Nu-Mark. Shindig Festival offers relaxation and revelry in equal measures.
There are no main stages, just a beautiful arrangement of stretch marquees and stylish venues. It’s the ideal weekend for party people with families. The Kids Kingdom is the area for babies, children and parents to hang out and play. Flying Seagulls will be entertaining small people with big imaginations. Expect a healthy mix of magic, juggling, games, stories and surprises.
Older kids can get involved in the hugely popular graffiti wall and attend DJ, MC-ing and breakdance workshops.
On the comedy front, big hitters Terry Alderton and Andrew Maxwell will take to the stage on Sunday. Terry’s trademark tic is to discuss his show’s progress with the voices inside his head. This is seat-of-its-pants standup that takes risks, hurtling off in unexpected directions while decorum struggles to keep up. Andrew offers state-of-the-nation comedy; this is a man for whom news fires his belly – he has been described as a “voice of sanity when it comes to British politics and one of the finest comics around on the subject”.
The dress up theme is ‘Get Fruity’. After all, life is a bowl of cherries at Shindig. So, assemble your berries, bananas and buddies.
