Founder Joe Rush hands over the reins to fellow Mutoid Waste artist Sam Haggarty
to present a broken, psychedelic circus and horror go-go show beyond your darkest
Introducing the Salon Carousel, the Horridor and the Acid Lounge, whilst welcoming
back the legendary Car Henge, Sam’s sideshow’s and Bez’s Acid House.
The Unfairground will bend your mind and steal your soul.
Welcome to The Unfair ground…That is, if a welcome is what you are expecting? We are a collection of side shows, dance venues and sculptures. A perverse examination of the hopes and fears found in the worlds of traveling amusements. Something wicked this way comes as the unfair ground rolls into town. Mutant dolls juggled by perverse clowns, a modern satirical take on amusement. Roll Up! Roll Up! For the strangest show on earth!
Born in 2010 from the team that brought you Trash City. Hailed as one of the most exciting and innovative events to hit the UK festival scene in recent years. Trash City was a genre-bending, definition-defying result of a collaboration between the very best of the UK creative underground. Just when you thought Glastonbury couldn’t get any stranger, wilder, or mind-bendingly entertaining, they go and turn it up to 11.
This is Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome-type entertainment, interspersed with the kind of visual, aural and interactive enjoyment that busy little minds looking for kicks and thrills can only dream of’ Clash Magazine.
The brave can take a stroll down Sam Haggerty’s & The dotmasters Joker’s Sideshow Alley, try your luck on the gobbler, Knock down a celebrity Crack Head or test your strength in the bone yard where the lucky can win a limited edition artwork Happy Doll,
or indulge in the hedonistic delights of The Acid House hosted by Happy Mondays mainman / Celebrity Big Brother alumni Bez (maracas optional). Jagz Kooner curates the tunes in the Rubbish Fairy , Acid Lounge.
Voted one of the best fields its a mix of the strange and familiar, trash and treasure of course if you’re seeking something more gentle you can always find a warm welcome with the lovely people at Strummerville, keeping it down-home with acoustic music and good company in the glow of the campfire.
