The nominees for the Association of Independent Festival’s third Festival Congress have been announced and Nozstock is up for two awards.
The Act of Independence award highlights a moment in the festival season that embodied the spirit of independence and for General Public’s Hip Hop Pickers Ball it’s ‘Straight Outta Bromyard’ to the nominee list.
We are also super excited that our Clean Campsite Crew are getting a nod in The Backstage Award nominations which is a brand new award for 2016.
Massive thanks to General Public for such an interesting installation and to Neil and his campsite judges for keeping it tidy! Winners are announced in November…
‘Come, relax in our den and let the animals who live inside entertain you.
If you dare to explore, they will show you the doors to your darker side……the freak show, a place of lost secrets where the animals party, inside their home where the things they find in time are collected and stored.’
What can we say folks? We all know of your twisted love for the curious, weird and whacky and now so does the rest of the festival world! Our very own perpetrators of the illusive strangeness, Clik Clik Collective have been nominated for Unique Festival Arena by the Association of Independent Festivals. The Cabinet of Lost Secrets drew in the hoards with their underground lair of madness, animal residents and secret chambers of oddity. They delighted and dazzled with secret interactive performances, installations and artistic prowess. Hailed by reviewers as having “unprecedented madness” (Summer Festival Guide) tales of the Cabinet will live on through time for all those intergalactic warriors who discovered its treats…
Kate Cox, Clik Clik’s Director/Producer said “Influenced from many years of sniffing out weird and secret spaces, I’m thrilled that the Cabinet is nominated for this award. A big ‘woop’ for the whole ‘Cabinet of Lost Secrets’ crew who gave everything to make it come to life!”
Keep your peepers peeled for the winners announcement at the Festival Congress Awards on the 5th November, and keep your fingers and paws crossed for the fantastic Clik Clik Collective.
