Glastonbury festival 2017 transforms Shangri-La from Heaven and Hell to Environ-mental. No Heaven. No Hell. Only the waste from last year’s Festival remains. All the things you left behind.
Giant Towers of Trash now dominate the Shangri-La skyline. Structures have formed from the scrap, dwellings made of detritus, art from the embers.
A Gas Tower looms over the site – harnessing the creative energy around it. A symbol of a bygone industrial era, it has reformed here, at the epicentre of the Digital Revolution. 360 degrees of awe-inspiring audio visual action.
Performing at Glastonbury’s Gas Tower is the likes of Diplo, Eats Everything, Dusky, Gotsome, Monki, Solardo, Goldie, Roni Size & more.
From the ashes of Hell rises the Truth Stage, where the sounds of the revolution resonate all night long including special performances from London Elektricity Big Band, Rat Boy, Gentleman’s Dub Club & more.
The container walls of the Clash throb in a cacophony of chaos, as the biggest names in underground music collide. 2 sound-systems, 2 crews, 1 sound-clash.
Shangri-La International Television Centre SHITV – triples its transmission by opening all day long for debates and discourse in DIY culture, documentary making and Activism. By night, it broadcasts the best in UK comedy and live art.
