Lost Vagueness Summer Spectacular 2005

2005-05-10


12-14 August, near Lewes, East Sussex

May 10, 2005, Press Dispensary. Following the success of its own festival last year, Lost Vagueness (http://www.lostvagueness.com), the original instigator of burlesque glitz-sleaze and purveyor of one of the most eccentric and thriving fields at Glastonbury Festival, is returning with another Summer Spectacular near Lewes: this time a 3-dayer on 12-14 August (subject to license confirmation).

The Lost Vagueness festival has met with local approval and support after proving itself in 2004. A one night event last year, this time it has expanded to run over two nights with camping and a capacity of 4,000 people.

Entertainment includes: The Ballroom, with champagne, cocktails, dancehall and splendid live acts; The Casino, with its decadent blend of cabaret and fantasy realities; The Changing Room, where Mishka and her stylists help guests become glamorised for night-time; and 50’s-styled pursuits with The Tea-Room, The 50’s Diner and The Laundrettas’ Pamper Parlor - featuring rock n’ roll, cocktails, gangster and B-movies, a pool party and more.

There’s also The Outdoor Stage, with new bands, DJ’s, and acts for guests to appraise while they sit in the sun sippin’ cocktails in the pool, freaky sideshows, an Organic BBQ, The Can-Can Girls, a Portrait Studio run by renowned photographers, a bonfire, burlesque cabaret and many more varied exhibitions of grandeur, skill and intrepidity!

Tickets cost 65 GBP plus booking fee (tbc) and will be available from Access all Areas, Camden (020 7267 8320); Black Market Records, Soho (020 7437 0478); The Dome Box Office, Brighton (01273 709709) and http://www.lostvagueness.com. The tickets will go on sale as soon as license approval has been officially confirmed.

Notes for editors
Lost Vagueness, in its guise as a Casino, started in 1998 after originating from an illicit travellers' bar that appeared on the outskirts of Glastonbury Festival. The original irony of travellers in top hats is now overshadowed by the sheer quality of the show; however the grass-roots humour remains the same to this day.12 12As well as running the only field in Glastonbury Festival’s history to be closed due to overcrowding in 2003 and proving a big success there in 2004, Lost Vagueness has staged its own events at Strawberry Fair (Cambridge), Stokefest (Stoke Newington) and The Coronet Music Hall (London). It also showcased a selection of acts at the Thames Festival 2004 and ran a two day festival near Lewes, East Sussex, in September 2004. 1212Lost Vagueness is assisted by Arts Council of England funding.12
