Night Of Festivals Nottingham // 21-23 June 2012
June 14, 2012
Night of Festivals has been created by ArtReach as an exciting, imaginative and FREE access outdoor arts event. Bringing together live music, spectacular carnival arts, digital projection, arts installations, moving image and storytelling, the festival is a unique concept intended to engage the whole community with the theme of celebrating the values of freedom and independence through artistic innovation.
The timing for Night of Festivals 2012 is planned to lead into The London 2012 Torch Relay celebrations in Nottingham at the end of June and then later in the year will link into the World Young Artists Event in Nottingham in September. Night of Festivals 2012 activities will also reach into key venues around the city such as Nottingham Contemporary and the New Art Exchange.
Held in the UKs largest public square, Old Market Square will host live bands and music every night from 7pm and boasts a spectacular carnival procession, that will take you on a journey through the streets of Nottingham encompassing a taste of both Rio and the Caribbean with floats, live samba, “rara” music, and lavish, colourful costumes.
To top it all off Mr. Peterson will be spinning a very special set on the main stage, Saturday 23rd June from 10 -11.30pm.
Don’t miss out..this festival is set to be a good’un!
