2005-08-05


12-14 August, near Lewes, East Sussex

August 05, 2005, Press Dispensary. Despite continuing requests for information, once again Lost Vagueness (http://www.lostvaguness.com) is unable to comment on rumours that Kate and Pete are getting back together to perform their recently recorded duet in a secret gig at the Lost Vagueness Festival near Lewes next weekend.

Kate and Pete?s relationship with Lost Vagueness has been developing since they stayed in the Lost Vagueness Trailer Park at Glastonbury this year and were reportedly married in The Chapel.

Deborah Berke, producer of Lost Vagueness comments: ?Although the press is widely wondering what Kate and Pete will do next following rumours of them getting married in our Chapel at Glastonbury, we can only say that we uphold the confidentiality of our celebrity guests, so cannot reveal details of their or anyone else?s antics at our events.?

Rated by The Sunday Times Style Magazine as one of the summer?s 10 best parties, the Summer Spectacular certainly promises to be one of the most glamorous and quirky festivals of 2005. For this special event, Lost Vagueness has gathered together over 500 artists, old friends and new, for a top weekender featuring three stages, seven venues, and all the usual twisted pleasures for which Vagueness is renowned?

The Ballroom, with champagne, cocktails, dancehall and splendid live acts; The Casino, with its decadent blend of cabaret and fantasy; The Changing Room - an unrivalled Mr Ben?s dressing up box; The 50?s AeroDiner with rock ?n? roll and airplane antics; Mass Wedding (fancy getting hitched for a day?); The Slipped Disco Tent with DIY and DJ dance-offs, Guilty Pleasures and more; The Chap Olympic Games; The Laundrettas? Pamper Parlor and pool parties; The Drifts Open Air Stage with new bands, DJs, and acts; The Midway carny sideshow area; Victorian Portrait Studio; Gourmet Tapas Bar; organic BBQ; free ice cream, Kids? Area; midnight bonfire; market stalls and various other exhibitions of skill and intrepidity!

Highlights of the line up include Ska Cubano (think Skatalites meets Bueno Vista Social Club), Young Blood Brass Band (an export from NY ? takes ancient brass band music and moves it into a mix of jazz and hip hop), The Priscillas (girls in thigh high PVC boots who sing like a proper rock band), the Bays, the colourful Indian spectacle of the Jaipur Kawa Brass Band, the Hiphoptimists headed by Andy Barlow of Lamb, the Chap Olympics (anyone for cucumber sandwich throwing?), Perverted Turkeys, Miss High Leg Kick and the Village Disco run by local farmers.

Notes for editors
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 is licensed to run from 2pm on Friday 12 August until 2pm on Sunday 14 with camping and a capacity of 4,000 people.

Lost Vagueness, in its guise as a Casino, started in 1998 after
originating from an illicit 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.

As 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.

Lost Vagueness became a business in 2003, assisted by Arts Council of England funding.
