In homage to the rich variety of festivals on offer throughout the UK the BME creates an immersive walk-through experience looking at how ‘the festival’ has become embedded within our culture as a rite of passage.

Be witness to a visual and audio soundscape that will take you on a journey through the decades from the sub-culture youths of the sixties and seventies to now and witness the evolution of the ‘festival’ from its folk and rock origins to the more mainstream popular music of the nineties and noughties.

From The Who and David Bowie to Gorillaz the spectacle of the festival will be represented on BME’s own mainstage, celebrating headlining acts throughout the decades.
