Previous guests to Kelburn will know that we love to go overboard with all the crazy little additions around the site. This year is no different, and we are once again loading the stunning surrounds of Kelburn Castle with a smorgasbord of the wierd and wonderful. From sessions in the glen and gardens, pop-up raves with a giant chameleon or police party unit, to poetry by the waterfall, gong therapy and a giant slip’n’slide. Of course there is The Neverending Glen Art Trail, but also we have cabaret and theatre at Nuria Nights, late night jams with Roberta’s Chan Bang and Making Things Happen. Fire shows, interpretive dance, giant jam sessions and The Secret Forest Project… the list goes on!
Welcome To The Kelburn Garden Party
At the time of writing, there are just under 4 weeks to go until we welcome our friends, crew, artists and collaborators to Kelburn Castle for another weekend of magic and sunshine (natch). Happily, we can now reveal the full daily musical programme, as well as profiles for the vast majority of artists playing.
As part of our mission to challenge expectations of what a small festival can achieve, The Kelburn Garden Party is hugely excited to announce an extension to this year’s experience: The Neverending Glen. Open to all Festival-goers, this ground-breaking project sees a carefully curated selection of contemporary artists and collectives creating bespoke artworks and installations throughout Kelburn’s ancient glen. We are even opening the festival a day early to celebrate.
