Festé 2014 Brochure
Fri 15 Aug 2014
The highlight of Derby's event calendar - Derby Festé - returns on Fri 26 - Sat 27 Sep and will be filled to bursting with artistic talent including stunning live performances, music, dance, film and more!
The event begins on Fri 26 Sep with the fantastic Spark! by Worldbeaters Music. Combining high-impact drumming, dynamic choreography and beautiful lights, this show builds in intensity as seven characters move through and interact with the crowd, culminating in a huge climax of light, sound, smoke and movement.
They will lead you to the market place for a dynamic retelling of Faust by Bad Taste Company. Featuring a unique fusion of world-class breaking combined with Lindy Hop, Charleston, and Swinging Big Band music of the roaring 20′s, this retelling of Goethe’s tragic tale taps into the spirit of gangsters, bootleggers, gamblers, flappers, and hepcats.
Friday will culminate into a fantastic DJ set from Da Sunlounge on the Market Place.
On Sat 27 Sep the streets of Derby will come to life from 12pm with entertainers for the whole family including live music, circus performers and headphone dancing, and much more.
Later on the action will shift to Bass’ Recreation Ground for Voalá’s stunning Muaré, a mesmerising cocktail of live rock and aerial acrobatics. This will be followed in the market place for DJ Woody’s brilliant Hip Hop is 40, an audio video history of the culture which grew from the original block parties to become a global phenomenon.
Tickets for Muaré are available here and cost £5 per person.
