One of our favourite weekends of 2022 was spent at the inaugural Kite Festival in Kirtlington Park, Oxfordshire. Billed as a festival of ideas and music, Kite was a revelation, with talks all day and banging music into the night, much of it provided by us in the Heavenly tent. The first meet up of the season, Kite fell on one of the first perfect weather weekends of the year. It wasn’t quite sunburn, and was definitely very good for all day drinking.
We’re chuffed to be asked back and excited to be part of their initial announcement. Next year’s festival takes place between 9th – 11th June 2023 and we’ll be hosting a stage over the whole weekend again. Confirmed for the Heavenly Stage so far: Mr Maserati himself, Baxter Dury; Peruvian DJ/producer Sofia Kourtesis, twisted perv-acid house band Decius, queer chaos merchant Lynks, Dutch space disco quintet Mauskovic Dance Band, talks by celebrated authors Dylan Jones and Max Porter and lead singer of Lush Miki Berenyi, and DJ sessions by house duo Raw Silk and Belfast’s legendary producer/soundtrack maestro/party starter David Holmes.
Elsewhere on site, music from Hot Chip, Suede, Candi Staton and Sarathy Korwar, talks from Russell Tovey, Rob Diament, Rosie Wilb and Alexi Mostrous and comedy from Alistair Green.
Loads more to be announced.
