Hyundai Motor and Tate has today announced that the Turbine Festival will take place on 25 July 2015 in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. The Festival – an interactive celebration of culture – will feature audio-visual music, performance, installations and family activities. Entry to the Festival is free of charge.
The Turbine Hall will become an alternative city for the day. Visitors will be able to enjoy a specially-installed garden square, an alternative hair salon, and make their own drinks at a pop-up juice bar. A variety of performances and music will be live on stage throughout the day including Grime//Hiphop/Afropop artist Afrikan Boy and poet Jacob Sam-La Rose.
Also, as part of the event, Tate Modern will also host an exciting programme of bite-sized short films in collaboration with the London Short Film Festival and a series of interactive workshops including beatboxing, poetry and crafting. Visitors can also contribute to the special project My Culture Museum by submitting photographs or bringing objects on the day to be archived and curated for the Festival. The public will be able to submit images via social media from today which will be displayed as part of the event. #turbinefestival #myculturemuseum
Everyone will be invited to interact with specially commissioned installations, including sound artist Yuri Suzuki’s pop-up record shop where visitors can create their own designs for vinyl record sleeves, and a London bus built specially on the day by artist John Costi.
