Over three years No-Nation curated the music programme for the 40,000 capacity festival. As part of the 15th anniversary in 2009, we devised and produced a unique finale performance featuring stalwart artists, Hexstatic with beatboxer Shlomo, hip-hop dance troupe Birdgang dance and a 12-piece samba band. We worked closely with the artists to sequence, choreograph and stage manage the festival’s closing event. No-Nation was part of the Festival’s senior management team and significantly developed audiences over its tenure. We also headed up many logistical arrangements including the artist liaison team.
Other artistic highlights included reforming techno pioneering outfit Orbital, bringing the Eno / David Byrne collaboration to the main stage, programming Leonard Cohen and Isaac Hayes and bringing Wayne Macgregor’s Random Dance to the Saturday night main stage.
