This year, Shindig Festival is taking place from 26 May – 29 May at a brand-new location – DillingtonEstate, Somerset. The 16th century house and hotel not only provides the backdrop but also some high-end accommodation, with the party taking place in the beautiful, tree-studded parkland.
The seventh edition of Shindig combines old-skool royalty, festival residents with many rising stars to ensure there’s something for everyone. De La Soul, Roy Ayres and Terry Hall, Goldie, Blue Lab Beats, Jazzie B, Odyssey and Nightmares on Wax are on the bill.
The weekend wouldn’t be the same without a heart-in-your-mouth performance from high-wire walker Chris Bullzini, or Pirates of the Carabina with their raucous, ingenious and insane talent.
For those that like to mix wellness with wildness, Shanti Shala is the perfect place to unwind, recharge and reconnect. You will find a variety of therapists offering treatments to relax and restore your body and mind.
The abnormally energetic Flying Seagull Project is back by popular demand in The Kids Kingdom. This year it will house a skate ramp, crazy golf course, kids’ cinema and plenty of inflatable fun from RingWorld. Not forgetting 4 Elements – offering breakdance, graffiti, DJing and rapping skills workshops.
This year’s fancy dress theme is Mardi Gras. Don feathers, beads, gather your festival crew and bring the best shimmys and shakedowns you’ve got. The Shindig spectacle is dialling up to ten. Expect some attention stealing, mind-bending art installations from the most visionary and trailblazing creatives of today. Mutoid Waste Company and artists from Rockaway Park will be bringing giant welded artwork, interactive diversions and fire-breathing sculptures.
Bringing a healthy dose of foot-stomping funk and a packed programme of entertainment
for all ages, Shindig Festival offers relaxation and revelry in equal measures.
