There’s still mud on the Hunter wellies from this years festival season, here is a post-festival catch-up with our team here at Zeitgeist Hair salon.
Debbie went to Womad which is a world music and arts festival that was created by Peter Gabriel, who says “I challenge anyone to come to a WOMAD festival and not be really excited or inspired by at least one thing.”
WOMAD, World of Music, Arts and Dance, is an internationally established Festival bringing together artists from all over the globe. WOMAD continues to present music that we feel to be of excellence, passion and individuality, regardless of musical genre or geographical origin, to thousands of festival goers everywhere. As an organisation, WOMAD now works in many different ways, but our aims are always the same – at festivals, performance events, through recorded releases and through educational projects, we aim to excite, to inform, and to create awareness of the worth and potential of a multicultural society.
Amy went to Glastonbury which is a festival in need of no introduction. Being the biggest music and performing arts festival not just in the country, but in the world.
They had it all, from lightning and blazing heat, amazing musical moments and
the visual art and installations were by far the best they’ve ever had.
Amy had a great time, saw loads of acts, not that she can remember them all now! War on Drugs, Massive Attack and Nick Mulvey being some of them. One of her highlights was watching The Wailers in the sunshine, imagining it was Bob Marley she was watching!
Kate hasn’t stopped yet! Having been to Beatherder she has been spotted at the Cloudspotting festival which is one of the best leftfield music line-ups in a beautiful forest location.
Festival glamour needs the perfect dry shampoo, and we have plenty to choose from. We have the pearly chic Pret a Powder or we have coloured hair powders that come in white, blonde, brown or black. They all do the same thing, rescuing your hair when you want to pack light!
Equal parts dry shampoo, style extender and volume in a pinch.
Continuing from last months feature, members of the team are bravely submitting pictures of their younger selves. This is a picture of Karen when she was only three months old!
All the worlds a stage.
On a slightly different festival theme, some of Amanda’s
improv buddies are performing at the Edinburgh Festival this August. If anyone is in Edinburgh for the festival and fancies a good giggle then try these. As part of the Free Fringe there is ‘Starting Tomorrow – a comedic drama performance’ from
the 2nd to the 23rd of August, various times at
31 Frederick Street,
Also part of the free fringe is professional stand up comedian James Christopher in ‘Partially Sighted in All the Big Venues’. A celebration of human flaws. ‘…this is a genial man with an almost constant smile who recounts the bizarre in recognisable situations you can really believe happened to him. He cites Daniel Kitson as an influence and you certainly can see touches of this in both his persona and storytelling ability, which seems gentle but subtly nudges to the quite dark’ (Nadia Brooks, BroadwayBaby.com, 2013).
