Jupiter Rising Festival, the newest outdoor festival of cutting edge music, performance and contemporary art returns this August in Scotland. Featured artists include Cate Le Bon, Karen Gwyer, Steve Warwick, Carlos Maria Romero, Elaine Mitchener, Apartment House, The Comet is Coming, The Vaselines, OH141, Cucina Povera, Total Leatherette, Alpha Maid and many more. The festival will unfold across the iconic landscape of Jupiter Artland.
The festival takes its creative inspiration from maverick New York artist Trisha Brown (1936–2017),who fearlessly transgressed the worlds of contemporary music, dance and site-specific performance over her long career. In her spirit, the festival’s 2019 programme will see a focus on showcasing adventurous new artistic work, including the Scottish premiere ofHQ: (I feel so Mezzaniney) by Steve Warwick and Carlos Maria Romero alongside new commissions by DJ and sound artist Ain Bailey and multidisciplinary artist Mary Hurrell (produced as part of Edinburgh Art Festival).
For the first time, Jupiter Rising will host a brimming programme of film and moving image from artists including Amir George, Aura Satz and Sam Austen, as well as films and discussions that present rarely seen footage from Trisha Brown’s archive. Scottish Queer International Film Festival (SQIFF) will also present a specially curated programme of film for the festival.
Festival-goers can enjoy wild-dining, lake-swimming, art walks, talks and curated film programme by Scottish Queer International Film Festival.
