And Then This Happened...

Tour de Moon is a unique, immersive and free (FREE!) festival, which is touring three UK cities. Newcastle is one of them.

Not many festivals celebrate the relationship between the earth and the moon through a series of thought-provoking, exciting and original experiences – with a special focus on nightlife, creativity and culture – but Tour de Moon is certainly one of them. A tricky beast to pigeonhole, it’s the brainchild of Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun, founder of NASA’s International Space Orchestra. She’s previously created large scale projects with the likes of Noam Chomsky, Pussy Riot, Massive Attack and Kid Cudi and this venture will feature everything from a Moon Convoy (a fully sustainable armada of vehicles) to Moon Music (an afterparty like no other) to Moon Cinema (original new short films) to Moon Games (what if the Moon was a psychedelic inflatable playground…). If you’d like the moon on a stick (i.e. you need to find out more about this enticing premise) then visit the website, below. GM
