Date: 12 May
‘Go go Penguins’ – 5pm
Gogo Penguin music is a mix of original compositions and revisionist takes on contemporary anthems, such as Queens of the Stone Age, Massive Attack and The Beatles. To see Gogo Penguin live is an emotionally charged experience, taking the listener through the melodic to the manic; from the IDM-inspired Last Words by the Walnut Tree to the heart-felt tribute Esbjörn (dedicated to the late Esbjörn Svensson) and the raucous energy of Fanfares; their imaginative improvisational style makes for a unique performance every time. Price: Free.
