Club DaDa is the legendary festival club of Continental Drifts – welcome to a surreal world where the absurd is everyday and where eccentricity isn’t just celebrated but elevated to performance art.
This year Club Dada is going to continue swing, ding and ultimately explode. They are taking over the Spiegeltent (whose brothers and sisters had Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich as guests) every night and spin it into the 23rd Century.
Thursday – Our killer jump up welcome to festival vibes start with Dj Chris Tofu odditys and Dick and Dom from the BBC , years the actual kids pranksters will be taking a very adult approach to squeeze the brains of anyone who comes in the Spiegel
Friday sees Electro Swing (1920-1950s remixed) with White Mink presenting Kitten and The Hip (Ashley Slater), A full Electric Swing Circus, production champs Savage Henry and Odjbox and live swing remix from LSO . All driven along by Swing Patrol for a killer night
Saturday sees the arrival of a London Beatbox Collective, this years no 1 Festival dance band Slamboree ( expect over 15 people on stage circus and other speigel tent worryers ) , Katy and The Mamboleros vintage remix and all the way from New York Red Barraat a brass band Bhangra special . IN short completely slamming
Sunday we’re really excited by having a Breakin Brass – Brass Band remix special. We managed to get back brass hip hoppers Fanfare Petard from France, Brassroots the UK’s greatest Brass band guys and the New Orleans Funksters Roy’s Big Smoke , avant garde Perhaps Contraption and Jaipur Kawa Brass band will swing it in their own way and all wrapped up with Break Dancers for brass bands and more. And of course DJ Chris Tofu’s end of festival season DJ set at 3 am . End of the Olympics/ Festival / 2012 madness .
Special thanks to the Arts Council of England for their support.
