Noise of Art presents… David Davis’ Dystopian Disco
In February David Davis, the UK’s recently retired Brexit minister, told an Austrian business conference that Britain would not be a “Mad Max style dystopian fiction” after Brexit. But what-if it was?
With the next events about to be announced, Noise of Art is launching its David Davis Brexit Dystopian Disco at Chateau Perché Festival on 10-12 August 2018.
Imagining Britain as the bacchanalian club and festival event that Davis possibly had in mind, Noise of Art’s arena features border frontier posts, performers, projections, passport checks and queues (we do like a good queue). Read more about it here.
Noise of Art, London’s pioneering music, art and film collective, brings the UK’s immersive club culture to France’s hottest electronic music and arts festival for the first time. The arena will host sets from Hacienda acid house pioneers and the first UK act to record a fully sample-based record, alongside new emerging acts representing a full range of UK club music, from disco to drum n bass, balearic house to dub-tech and club jazz and London’s new warehouse scene, blended into a fictional playground.
Noise of Art’s line-up of acts celebrating British club history and contemporary UK club music, includes: Justin Robertson (Hacienda/ Deadstock 33s), Ramrock Records, Heavy Disco: Ashley Beedle (Black Science Orchestra) & Jo Wallace (Madame Jo Jo’s), Diesel (Xpress 2/ Skint), Jerry Bouthier (JBag/ Kitsune), A Man Called Adam (Acid Jazz/ Other), Behzad & Amarou, Ygal Ohayon (Deviant Disco, Antinote, Versatile), Mechanix, Arklow (Sunny – Zouk Club), Cheng & Ollie, Joseph S Joyce (Default Position) and host DJ Ben Osborne (Noise of Art) being joined by jazz saxophonist Ben Gobble. Plus Monkey Fist and Scotch Lobster Live, Your Mum viusals and performance artists, alongside sun-drenched reggae and dub.
Chateau Perché Festival features over 200 artists playing 11 arenas in three days set in a beautiful French castle’s grounds (it “perches’ in a new, always beautiful, castle each year). For full 2018 line up see http://chateauperche.com.
More Disco Dystopias plus new projects across the UK and Europe to be announced soon.
