KALLIDA Festival 2017


KALLIDA Festival
28th - 29th July 2017
Baskerville Hall, Clyro, Hereford HR3 5LE

Final release tickets are available here for £85

For two days in July, KALLIDA will takeover Baskerville Hall - a 19th century country house, surrounded by 130 acres of Welsh countryside, for a completely new type of festival. It’s a collaboration between our favourite artists, musicians, DJ’s and set designers, all coming together to produce an experience that is both immersive and totally individual.

Our team have worked on a massively diverse range of some of the UK's best loved creative institutions: Secret Cinema, Punchdrunk, Ynot festival, Eyesemetric productions, Ugly Duck London, Mapping Creativity, and United Visual Artists. We've been solidifying our plans for really transforming Baskerville for a while and cannot wait to welcome 500 guests into what will be a fantastic array of visual installations and absorbing design. In short, we are putting together the most arresting mansion party we can collectively imagine.

We’ll be transforming the venue, and creating the kind of world in which to build new friendships and make new experiences with old ones. You are encouraged to explore the estate, which we will be equipped with heavy weight sound systems, experiential production, and a selection of the UK’s best underground acts.

The day’s will see live sets from some of the UK’s most exciting soul, jazz and afrobeat bands, surrounded by an area of truly outstanding natural beauty. By night, LSS, Clarks, Bad Taste, Off Me Nut, Tumble Audio, Party For The People, Satsumas and Green Bay Wax are coming together to create a mansion party like no other.

Album Review: Nubiyan Twist – Jungle Run [Strut Records; February 2019]

Jazz has many different guises and, within those guises, a further plethora of textures. It’s one of the traits that sets it apart from other genres, classical music excepted. In the ongoing revival and reinvention of jazz within these shores, there is clearly a surfeit of talent. Nestled in amongst…

Gallery: Ealing Jazz Festival @ Walpole Park (London; Saturday 28th July 2018)

We’re guilty of rarely venturing too far west in London, but when we do we always live our days up, attending outstanding events and enjoying every minute of it. The 2018 edition of Ealing Jazz Festival was no exception. Despite the blustery weather blowing sand all over Walpole Park and…

Event Review: Jam on RYE Festival @ Peckham Rye (London; 29th May 2018)

From the first Jamaican rude-boy sound systems of Duke Reid and Prince Buster to Trojan Records of London 1968, ska, rocksteady, reggae and dub sound system culture has thrived in Britain’s black culture and has defined generations and popular trends. A sunny May Bank Holiday saw hundreds take to Peckham Rye…

News: ‘I Follow My Heart and I Follow My Soul’… K.O.G. (K.O.G & the Zongo Brigade) performs “Money”

It’s always interesting when musicians confront themselves with art forms that are not music. That’s what our favourite “afro-fusionist” K.O.G., frontman of K.O.G & the Zongo Brigade, has recently done adapting and reciting one of his new songs titled “Money”.    On Friday, K.O.G. & the Zongo Brigade will visit London and surely turn Pop…

Event Review: Ealing Jazz Festival @ Walpole Park (London, 29th July 2017)

Much like a charming village fete with a complimentary cleansing mud bath, Ealing Jazz Festival provided both entertainment and healing from the music and comedy of sliding from one stage to another. Unfortunately for the locals, this was the second week that the Walpole celebrations had been washed out. However,…

Event Review: Love Supreme Festival (Glynde Place, 30th June to 2nd July 2017)

The concept of an outdoor jazz festival hardly conjures images of glitter-filled Glastonbury excitement, a young hip crowd and dance-fuelled elation. However, previously exclusive jazz appears to be undergoing a fashion revolution and the grounds of Glynde Place hinted at this. Love Supreme, the UK’s only three-day greenfield jazz festival…

Album Review: Nubiyan Twist – Siren Song [Wormfood Records, 27th May 2016]

Following their highly celebrated debut album in 2015, the eclectic 12-piece band from Leeds, Nubiyan Twist, is back with their new EP, Siren Song. And what an apt name for this second album, which allures and entices its listeners in many unexpected ways, from its dance-inducing funk groves and intoxicating…

Interview: Nubiyan Twist (July 2016)

One of the most exciting names on the UK music scene is also one of its most indefinable and difficult to pigeonhole. That’s because the musical ‘dirty’ dozen Nubiyan Twist (in honour of its front woman) dislikes definitions, labels or borders. The band, originally from Leeds, London, Oxford and Dublin…
