Once again Big Wave PR will be looking after the PR for The Fling Festival, Hylands Park, Chelmsford, Essex.
The Fling is a unique summer festival of live music, cabaret and curiosity that will once again welcome adults of all ages to the glorious surroundings of Hylands Park, Chelmsford, Essex on Saturday 4th July, from 12noon. This year marks the festival’s seventh anniversary and sees the exciting addition of VIP camping; allowing festival goers to continue this exclusive party with alluring late night entertainment and Sunday morning activities.
The Fling offers an intimate village of music, surreal theatre, fantastical storytelling and curious sideshows amongst a banquet of unique performances from far and wide. Headlining this year’s musical feast will be the world-renowned Dub Pistols. Fronted by Barry Ashworth, the Dub Pistols have worked with The Specials, Madness and have taken their “mighty reggaematic bass-driven live machine” around the world. Renegade Brass Band, “the best brass band working out of Britain!”, (according to Craig Charles, BBC 6 Music), combine eight horns with two percussionists, scratch DJ and live MC, to bring their raw brass sound and high-energy live show to The Fling Festival 2015. BBC 6 Music’s Shaun Keaveny will be making a very special DJ set appearance, and the Festival also welcomes Leddra Chapman, hailed as one of the most gifted young songwriters in Britain today.
All of this plus an abundance of local talent across four music stages, including Little Donkey and The Midnight Barbers, ukulele group D’Ukes, Band of Fools, Tall Dark Friend, Ady Johnson, Animal Noise, Papa Shango, Bakerside and 12 piece group Nat & The Noise Brigade, who will be bringing their eclectic mix of brass, wind, strings and more to Hylands Park.
The Fling Festival isn’t all about the music, with hundreds of comedy, cabaret, side-shows and other performances taking place across the day. Other acts already confirmed include Buffalo Tank who will present a world of wonders with Moschops and Sidewicket, Burlesque Jems, Afro Brazilian Arts and Culture, Aylmer the Singing Worm, The Elation Station, Footprint Theatre Company, Imagination Station Puppets and Jo Peacock’s Horse World to name but a few.
