Babylon Uprising 2015 – “What lies beneath”
What really makes Glastonbury the most amazing show on earth, is the near infinite labyrinth of hidden treasures waiting to be unearthed around the never ending metropolis which emerges in the heart of rural Somerset for a few precious days each year.
Any seasoned Glastonbury veteran will profess that each time they find something fresh and breathtaking that they simply had no idea even existed before. And this, is the magic of Glastonbury.
It’s not everywhere that you’d find a Trinidadian percussionist alongside a south London grime MC partying with a troupe of Welsh can-can dancers, but then not everywhere is Babylon Uprising.
Nestled in the heart of C market near the bandstand, Babylon Uprising is one of the secret jewels of the Festival, a place of vibes, whether it be chilling at lunch to some classic heavy dubs, or partying until sunrise to the speaker rattling sounds of underground rave music.
Run by tight-knit legendary south west sound system ‘theBRSS’, all long-time music addicts whom consist of sculpturs, eco-builders, designers and music professionals, Babylon Uprising is an immersive cocktail of visual delights and innovative frontline DJs and performers, all delivered on a crystal clear and bass heavy handmade sound system.
In the spirit of Glastonbury Festivals drive to reduce waste and recycle, the staging and set up is always hand crafted by the crew from up-cycled ‘junk’ that’s otherwise destined for landfill.
Musically the Babylon family are proud to showcase homegrown and upcoming DJs and producers, alongside the industry’s leading and most ingenious music artists. What makes it even more remarkable is that not one of them has ever played for money, or even tickets , so you are assured that whoever you see smashing the dance floor is simply doing it for the love of sharing their craft, with passion, fire and grace.
