Elrow- “THE PARTY OF ETERNAL HAPPINESS”

It’s no myth that us at wildthing.com are HUGE fans of Elrow events, and so are our customers!
Elrow is a party like no other exploding in colour, confetti and glitter, there is something really special in the way that people can dress as fun and bold as they like, the party goer crowd was not lacking in glitter or fancy dress.

When we seen that an Elrow event was taking place in our hometown, Bristol, we couldn’t wait to jump on that ship!

Here’s what the organisers had to say about the event called ‘Rowmudas’…. ‘
Ibiza. Saturday, September 16th, 2017. Elrow threw a party on a pirate ship with a definite sparRow vibe. But somewhere between Atlantis and Es Vedrá the ship went off course and entered the white island’s wildest waters: the Rowmuda Triangle. The music and the noise of the crowd awoke and infuriated the Craken, the island’s most dangerous animal. This savage underwater creature swallowed the pirate boat in just one bite, setting the partygoers off on a surreal journey deep inside the Craken. The party on-board the boat had already been pretty fantastic, but this took them into a completely different dimension. Words cannot describe what they experienced in the Rowmuda Triangle. Imagine an insane mix of The Island, Lost and also Alive; a wild fiesta full of shipwrecks, crashed planes, insane sea creatures and hippy communes under the sea. The party everybody was talking about, “THE PARTY OF ETERNAL HAPPINESS”. ‘

This event is nearly sold out, so if you want to go make sure you grab your tickets! TO PURCHASE TICKETS CLICK HERE

3 Festivals you may want to go too…

NOZSTOCK FESTIVAL

Nozstock The Hidden Valley
Thursday 18th – Sunday 21st July 2019

@ Rowden Paddocks, Bromyard, Herefordshire, HR7 4LS
Tickets: From £125 for adults / 12s and under free
www.nozstock.com / @Nozstock

Artists include: Rudimental (DJ set), Soul II Soul, The Skatalites, David Rodigan, Hollie Cook, Elvana: Elvis fronted Nirvana, Oh My God! It’s The Church, Henge, Jam Baxter, DJ Zinc + SP:MC, Turno, Notion, A Skills, Randall, Hospitality Takeover and many more

Last summer Nozstock: The Hidden Valley reached its sold-out 20th anniversary across a spectacular weekend in Herefordshire.

Nozstock is one of the UK’s longest running festivals – family-run, very much home-made and proudly independent on a beautiful working farm set upon rolling hills. The Nosworthy family continue to curate one of the UK’s finest emporiums of music, arts, food and drink, with a huge focus on keeping all kids and families entertained in the Little Wonderland Kids Area.

It’s a gloriously eccentric, wildly imaginative and decadently off-kilter brain-shift with incredible detail at every turn, a small festival with a very big heart which continues to chart its own path, far away from commercialisation and following the flock. Nozstock is a transcendental experience which creates its own sense of unity and escapism from the real world for a few precious days.  

The last two decades of magic set on Rowden Paddocks has created a sublime adventure for all the ages, and now, entering its 21st season in 2019, Nozstock once more will enchant, inspire and illuminate all who attend.

One of Europe’s defining odysseys, Love International, is back in July 2019 for its 4th season, after selling out months in advance last year.

Nestled away amid sprawling pine trees, rocky outcrops and crystal-clear Adriatic waters in Tisno, music lovers and adventure seekers from all over Europe and beyond unite for a truly magical experience under the sun and stars.

The festival encourages artists to experiment and embraces a peerless array of sounds and styles across a scintillating spectrum, from disco, house and techno, through to dub, reggae, funk and Balearic. Taking in locations including intimate beach-side dancing, pulsating boat parties, the mesmeric Olive Grove, Garden Stage action, the iconic open-air club, Barbarella’s, and the Secret Island Party which brings the whole journey to a glorious climax, it has evolved into a journey unlike any other, following its own unified beat on the Dalmatian coast.

Tokyo World 2018

Tokyo World has quickly become a staple of the Bristol and UK festival scene, and never fails to close the
season with a bang. Taking place in mid-September for 2018; headliners such as Action Bronson, Sister
Sledge, Groove Armada, Mike Skinner and Lady Leshurr top the festival’s line-up which has already
made headlines just a few days after its release.

Once again the Tokyo World line-up is daringly eclectic with an added dimension this year of many more
live bands. These include names such as headliners Sister Sledge & Morcheeba, as well as Submotion
Orchestra, Dub Pistols, Dreadzone, Stereo MC’s and Bristol’s very own Laid Blak.
“We have always been supportive of the next generation of festival goers, and always will be,” said Soizic
Hagège, part of the event management team at Tokyo World. “And the significant inclusion of many live
bands this year on the new Live Stage is something we’re very much looking forward to.”
This is evident from the line up for this year’s event. Tokyo World has always been known as a festival on
the forefront of modern music, with a focus on contemporary artists pushing new sounds. And now, with
the expansion of the programming, the organisers are expecting an even wider audience and
demographic this year.

It goes without saying that the Mutiny Stage boasts a stellar line up Drum and Bass artists and this year’s
main headliner for the Mutiny Stage is yet to be revealed. What’s more, the Hedonism Stage, will for the
second year in a row host a cutting edge selection of House royalty, with: Erick Morillo, Maya Jane Coles,
Steve Lawler, Kerri Chandler and Danny Tenaglia as the main headliners over both days.
Fans of Hip Hop and Grime will not be disappointed either, as they’ll be able to enjoy sets by Ace Hood,
Lethal Bizzle, Little Simz, Nadia Rose, Not3s and Ms Banks – all featured on the festival’s iconic Vulkano
Stage.

“We are working hard to be as inclusive as possible, and to integrate the full scope of both innovative and
timeless music, but also of music fans and festival goers,” Soizic explained. “We truly feel that diversity
and unity are what makes music festivals unique, and these are the values we strive to design our event
around.”

The event runs from midday to around 11pm on the 22nd and 23rd of September, but there are also
official after-parties for both days at Motion for those who want to keep on dancing. Acts are yet to be
announced for this year, but both after-parties will mainly feature Electronic and Urban music artists with a
splash of Drum and Bass.

While nothing has been confirmed yet, it is safe to assume that the Tokyo World organizers will continue
to explore all the ways in which Tokyo World’s values can come into play in music events and to keep
pushing the boundary of this ever growing Bristol grassroots festival.
“We want festival goers to be completely immersed in the Tokyo World ethos,” Soizic tells us. “All our
work is for people to have a memorable experience, and we are constantly thinking of new ways to bring
people together.

Boomtown 2018…Turn The Page To Chapter 10!

 

Let us begin…

Boomtown has always been on Wildthing’s to do list, every year we say we’re going to go but some how we’ve never made it! The amount of times we’ve been told, ” you would love Boom Town” and wandered what people meant, this year the Wild thing Girls are finally going to find out!  Who’s with us? Time to break out of our office in Bristol and head to the biggest growing city that is Boomtown…

The story

What sets the festival apart from the rest, is the festivals story… once upon a time in 2009 there was a man named Nicholas Boom,every year a district is born and the revolution takes over. From The Wild West to the Rave Yard the city grows deeper and deeper each year, Lions Den, Sector 6 and now the new Diss-order alley. You can’t but help naturally fall into character and become a citizen of the Boomtown.

Our adrenaline is pumping and brains whizzing at Wildthing headquarters as we caught up with the story and got accustomed with the districts. What new districts and town people are lurking around each corner, will we be chilling at Paradise Heights? Or getting wavey down Old Town?

Get into character

So what will be wearing you ask… Wow..wow.wow Reload, What Characters! Will we be? A Seamstress for the can-can dancers from Wild West,  steam punk rockers from Diss-order Alley? Banghai rebels? At Wild Thing we don’t do things in half measures. Soon to come we will be posting another blog on which characters we have picked and trust me you don’t want to miss it, we are working with local Bristol designers and more to bring you style tips and full looks that you can bring to Boomtown this year.  For now, check out the characters that made up last years forever growing city …chapter 9 characters.

 

Watch out for our own styles over the festival weekend and come say hiiii, we are dying to see your crazy chapter 10 inspired looks…who knows there may be a little treat for our favourite outfit!! Start tagging your @boomtownofficial outfits purchased from @wildthing now to get the creative juices flowing! 

Keep posted for the highly anticipated release of 2018 character themes followed by Wild Thing’s stlye blog (part 1), with so many more new districts this year we’re going to have so much fun creating!!

Boomtown…we will see you soon to turn the page to Chapter 10: THE MACHINE CANNOT BE STOPPED.
