The Fancy Dress Disco-Dance Off

“Yet again, we’ve got space to program content in the schedule but little to no budget for artists. What do we do? At Beacons, I was not a booker – my job was to sell the festival. But I couldn’t resist the opportunity to inject a bit of tomfoolery into proceedings (something I passionately felt the brand needed). What could be better than a disco dance off… in fancy dress? I managed to run this without having to make any adjustments to the setup in one of the music tents. We selected competitors from the audience who got up and danced on stage. People were roaring with laughter, it really was hilarious” – Roxy
