Onboard The Craft Festival

giphyWe’re sorely disappointed to have to admit defeat in trying to knit logistical conundrums into a viable solution for getting Glowpeople to September’s Onboard The Craft festival 2016. So, despite what you see on posters and websites, we won’t be playing there. Bum.

Apologies to the organisers and anybody who’d set their hearts on seeing us return there, after such a cracking set in 2015.

However… plans are afoot to create another freak out, once again with the wonderful mind bending projection art of Andy McKeown in Shropshire!

Garry Lee’s Starship Overflow radio show’s latest edition is stock full of new psychedelic rock oddities  from the likes of Astralasia, Deviant Amps, Red Spektor, Sendelica and a whole lot more. And yes, we’re in there somewhere.

NEXT: Out To Grass, May 28th, 2016

12513886_10154014729896197_2631411532810310549_oThis Saturday: Glowpeople are to be reunited with digital light installation artist Andy McKeown whose huge, bold and kaleidoscopic shows bring spaces to psychedelic life all over the UK. Also throwing dance forms and shapes into the swirling experience will be Misha.

The whole thing will occur when we return to the utterly lovely ‘Out To Grass’ camping site for a weekend of arts, performance and music. 27th May – 30th May, 2016

Glowpeople will be taking to the stage for a nice, late evening set of wonky pop grooves at around 10pm, on the Saturday.

Also performing over the weekend will be Paddy Steer, Miss Pearl & The Rough Diamonds. There’ll be workshops; Drumlove, aerial silks, aerial hoop and clik clik collective. Camp stew and ghostly tales. www.outtograss.com

New Release

antrecords WHITE TransparentThere’s a third Glowpeople album in the pipeline!! Preceding that, however, we will be releasing a four track EP called Quartet, in May. Both this and the as yet untitled album will be available online via iTunes, Amazon and Spotify through our new record label the Stockholm based Struggling Ant Records.

We also intend to have the album available in CD format, too. This will be on sale from the band / merchandise stalls at the gigs and festivals we have planned – and via mail order, through our Seattle based label and friends Cosmic Primitive Records, while stocks last. Incidentally, they still have a few copies remaining of our previous albums, on CD; ‘Things…’ and ‘Happen…’.
