Glastonbury Festival&#039s Shangri-La reveals far more specifics of their Shafterlife story arc

around the festival site (Shangri-La)

Glastonbury Festival‘s Shangri-La, the area that is a single enormous immersive installation, has revealed much more specifics of their plans for the vast interactive fictional planet they bring to life by a creative team of more than 1,500 crew, performers and artists. This year is the fourth of The Shafterlife story arc, which has been establishing the concept of heaven and hell with contemporary sins and salvations – their message this year is “do not believe what you see hear or study!”.

The reason for that is Shangri-Hell is now being run by media moguls &amp their corrupt press. In an info age Shangri-Hell has it really is own international media running the show – Shangri-Hell International Tv (SHITV) which has the monopoly on every media outlet in the location which is now overrun with transmitters, roving reporters, daytime television and all spilling their lies to brainwash the masses. As for the other side of heaven&amp hell this year Shangri-Heaven is getting redeveloped into exclusive luxury real estate – The Intoleranch!

This year Shangri-La has its really personal newspaper complete of original artwork, vital inside information and Shangri-satire. Proceeds will go towards the refugee community kitchen in Calais and Dunkirk.

For these following the story here’s the scrip[t for the final episode coming to a huge field near you this summer season:

Soon after the political disaster and anarchic occupation of 2015, the finale of this 4-year series comes to a dramatic close.

2016: The men and women of Shangri-La have lost their voices amongst the deceit and distractions of the mainstream media. A new power resides more than the this sensational, subversive city now that the media has gained full access to its inner workings (and everyone’s individual lives.)

Shangri-Hell International Television (SHITV) has the monopoly on all media outlets, plus a new HQ to develop much more mind-controlling trite to make you feel better about yourselves. With the improve of media influence and technologies, a new movement of individuals power is rising. Utilizing art, music and a fuck ton of ‘likes’ the men and women are claiming back their voices and power, hacking into the systems that handle them, in search of the ultimate truth.”

Shangri-La’s inventive director, Kaye Dunnings commented, “Shangri-La holds a mirror up to the masses, difficult men and women in politics and play. Generating conversations, force-feeding the senses, expanding minds and opening hearts. There are no spectators. This year’s theme explores the media in all its ugliest forms and asks folks to seek out the truth, not to believe what they see, hear or study.”

Chris ‘Tofu’ Mackmeikan, Shangri-La Music Director gives a handful of hints about what Festival goers can expect this year, hinting there’s a handful of surprises in retailer, saying, “I’m so excited by the music line up it is a single of the best ever in 20 years. Acts we waited years for, secret superstar sets and 10000% the very best of the new, Shangri-La’’s music is a shimmering example of festival really like.”

Robin Collings, Shangri-La’s co-producer commented, “I am hyped about the line-up this year, but a few sets in particular… Beating Heart, Oli Wood (Black Butter) and Chris Pedley’s collaboration making use of a library of standard African recordings stretching back 100 years. I am also a enormous junglist so the set of the weekend may possibly properly be Roni, Adam F and Bryan G back to back in Heaven.”

These exploring the venues this year should seek out highlights like the very first women only venue at a festival – The Sisterhood, Shangri-La Pirate FM will be hijacking Worthy Farm Radio (Saturday midnight to 6am), some of the eclectic musical highlights (see their line-up web page right here) consist of Aiden Larkin playing DJ Derek’s mini disk collection, Kate Tempest – Welfare Unit, Caravan Palace, Roni Size, and all day Funk &amp Soul with Craig Charles. Collaborations with creative media students from the Bath Spa University. Light surgeons and AVTV take more than the heaven arena for a video-mapping extravaganza. In depth visual art which includes a specific secret piece of art revealed created uniquely for Shangri-La. But please don’t take our word for any of this!
