Out of this World: Night Carnivals by Global Grooves

As the headliners come to a close, stay vigilant in the main arena and watch out for Out of this World: an other-worldy procession of curious characters by Global Grooves. Blending together carnival arts, thumping percussion, ethereal beings and illuminated lanterns, the Friday and Saturday night parades will be a spectacle to behold.

Dance with flaming bats & dragons, alien jam-junk bands and molten planets in a spectacular display of music and dance. Meet magical, mysterious extra-terrestrials from imagined constellations, feel the fire and gases of the milky-way’s molten planets, and move to the space grooves of our star-hopping musicians.

All are welcome to join ‘Out of this World’ night carnivals around the main arena at 23:00.

Watch out for teaser parades during the day with participants from a local school, for an afternoon shimmy across the bluedot cosmos.
