brighton & hove’s alternative to glastonbury

When Glastonbury festival has a fallow year, what’s the best way to fill that void? Well, we think we’ve found just the thing. The Lost In Vagueness Tour is coming to the city, so there’s plenty of festival fun to be had away from the fields next month.

If you’re a fan of the festival, then roll up, roll up, because for one night only, you’ve got the chance to immerse yourself in the world that was Lost Vagueness, the infamous party that everyone wanted to be part of. Relive the festival experience and revel in the music and entertainment at the tour’s one-off immersive night – for the badly behaved only.

To start the evening off, you’ll be transported back to that field as you watch Lost In Vagueness – a film that lets you in on the untold backstage story of the ‘naughty corner’ of the festival. Something we all want to be part of, right? Guests will discover how Lost Vagueness founder Roy Gurvitz teamed up with Glastonbury king Michael Eavis to build a place of ‘decadence and muddy opulence’ that saved the festival from financial ruin.

Roy was unsuccessful in his Europe-wide quest to find a community where he could escape his oppressive upbringing, which led him back to Glastonbury to work as a crew member. Roy jokingly created a faux casino as a bit of fun for the other site crew, which then led to the birth of Lost Vagueness, setting the powerful cultural style of the ‘naughties’ for anyone that experienced it.

The only advice we can give is to get your ticket now, get dressed up and get ready to dive straight into the wrongness that is the Lost In Vagueness Tour. Soak up the secret stories from the film and immerse yourself in a night of anarchic revelry with a live DJ and interactive games, including a performance from local double-act The Two Wrongies!
