About Sub Audio Festival

http://www.subaudiofestival.co.uk/

Phil Hartnoll (ORBITAL)  &  KRAFTY KUTS confirmed as headline DJs for Sub Audio Festival on Clapham Common!!!

They’ve jumped at the chance to play at the UK’s first ever silent disco festival, especially as the art director was responsible for lots of the craziness at The Secret Garden Party.  It’s only 1,000 capacity so expect an electric yet intimate atmosphere but for this reason you can be sure tickets will sell out very soon.

The central stage will be a sight to behold as this will be a giant replica of a set of headphones. Picture 3 DJs standing on one of the ear pieces, all facing outwards and playing to 360degrees of party people dancing to any of 3 headphone channels.

Choose between a miriad of music genres from over 70 DJs including house, electro swing, breakbeat, indie, glitch hop, nu disco, techno, funk, balkan, rock. . you name it. .  

And for when you’re not dancing, there’ll be a whole range of pop-up experiences:

HOLI PAINT FIGHT   

This will break out for all those who know how much fun this is!

GIANT BALL POOL    

Like for kids but with 3ft balls!  

GLITTER WRESTLING.

This hilarious festival ritual involves a pool of water and glitter, the rest is up to your imagination. . .

CHIVAREE CIRCUS WALKABOUT

A multi-talented group of performers will mingle and wow the crowd.

ACOUSTIC TENT

Supported by Oxjam. this marquee will be dressed up like a living room with acoustic musicians performing on rotation throughout both days.

PILLOW FIGHT

You know you’re gonna love this!

TRON PONG

Table tennis in the dark with UV light and luminous bats and table.

REZtron RETRO GAMING/SILENT KARAOKE TENT

FACE PAINTING

SPOKEN WORD TENT.  

Also:

1ST 100 PEOPLE EACH DAY GET A COMPLIMENTARY LUNCH

From their choice of gourmet food stalls

FULLY LICENSED BAR

Serving beers, ciders, spirits, wines and soft drinks.

SHEESHA LOUNGE

8 MARQUEES

So plenty of cover whatever the weather.

And definitely worth a mention:

LUXURY TOILETS     

With proper sinks and hot/cold running water! They’ll be regularly maintained by the team so none of those horrific festival toilet experiences.

Tickets are ridiculously good value at £23 so we recommend you don’t hang about…. . .
