Preview: Caught by the River Thames @ Fulham Palace (London, 6th & 7th August 2016)


Caught by the River, which began as an online forum for ‘all things outdoors’, is now an established name on the small festival circuit.

If you’ve ever been to Port Elliot, Festival No.6, Field Day or the Good Life Experience then chances are you’ve stumbled across one of their stages before, characterised by a mixing pot of bands, brewers, authors, artists, thinkers and drinkers. With a great reputation behind them, Caught by the River have now taken on the challenge of bringing the charm of those small gatherings out of the shires and on to the northern banks of the Thames, blending – in their own words – mind-bending psychedelic rock with Springwatch.

Music is provided by the likes of Mulatu Astatke and the Sun Ra Arkestra, one the father of Ethio-jazz and the other an ever-changing group of thirty performers, both famed for their explorations of African-American jazz with African rhythms and modes. Meanwhile a poetry stage is curated by Faber & Faber, conversations are had with Kate Tempest and Lauren Laverne, and the Museum of British Folklore presents artefacts, events and talks celebrating the folklore of the Thames.

No more than a ten minute walk from the tube, you’d be hard pushed to find an easier way to step out of the daily grind and re-engage with nature this August.
