Co-curated by tribal pop band KUNTA KINTE, White Mischief is a one-night indoor festival featuring four rooms, two stages, seven bands, ten cabaret acts and countless DJs.
The event will be headlined by British Sea Power, who will be playing a full set, but at a time allowing their fans from out of London to catch the last train home. British Sea Power's own choice of support (Dear Britch) will be playing the second stage, and 10-piece soul orchestra Lord Large Experiment - led by an ex-member of Electric Soft Parade and featuring Norman Cook collaborator Ashley Slater - will astound the audience.
But there's much more! White Mischief also features incredible vaudeville performers in-between the bands, plus surprises such as human piercing symphony Skinphony, and trips through time with an Edwardian space pirate. Walkabout acts and costumed characters are thrown into the mix, and each room is decorated by set-dressers from the film world.
