Human Zoo is a brand new boutique festival taking place from August 10-12 in Suffolk. If you haven't already meticulously planned your summer of fun, then make sure you consider this!
While some festivals start off small and gradually build up over the years, others just cut straight to the chase. Human Zoo doesn't fit in the last category, it takes the whole debut festival thing to the bridge… and beyond! In fact if there was a competition for greatest ever first line-up, Human Zoo would win hands down.
Before we get the ear-watering line-up, however, let's get the formalities over and done with… Human Zoo is a festival curated by Pete Jordan (the brains behind Spectrum, one of Nottingham's best success stories this century). Offering a wide range of beats and bizarres, not only will be able to rave it up with Bury St Edmonds' finest, you'll also be able to indulge in the relaxing hot tubs, take in some of the most exciting contemporary art, marvel at the entertainers and aerial antics of the spit fires and drop the kids off at the children's entertainment area while you get down to some heavy duty dancing. As for the music, with arenas hosted by Spectrum, Slaang and Technique the music policy already hints at discerning and underground, but the proof of the pudding can only really be found in the reading, so get your peepers locked down on this lovely lot…
