Travelling festival Tour de Moon will be popping up across England this summer

Tour De Moon is the new festival celebrating all areas of arts that will be popping up in cities across England this summer.

The free festival debuted earlier this month in Leicester which made “ultra violet experiences to life” with DJ sets, a giant squid, film screenings, food, talks, a giant red phone to talk to the moon and more.

Next for Tour De Moon is Newcastle from May 27-30 before Southampton in June.

For the Newcastle festival there will be DJ sets from Alannah Lamb, Weston and Becky Woodcock, and live performances from Georgia May and Nadedja along with many more out-of-this-world acts.

Creative director, artist and filmmaker Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun as well as the founder of NASA’s International Space Orchestra describes the festival as “a direct response to the current world we live in”.

The symbolism of the moon is described by the festival as their “blank canvas where anything is possible” and that it is “where things don’t just appear as they are, but also as they could be.”

The festival adds: “Nightmares, hallucinations, visions or fantasies all make our experience of nightlife unique. Outside of the traditional confines of daylight hours, IT’S TIME to use radical imagination to forge new possibilities. “

Tour de Moon is one of 10 creative projects that are part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK.
