Wembley Park in London has been announced as the venue for one of the world’s most unique, fun and exciting festival series.

The HOLI ONE Colour festival will be taking place on 2nd August from noon until 10pm and aims to unite people through music and colour.

Thousands of people are expected to attend to share music, dance, performance art and visual stimulation. Against a backdrop of dance and DJ music, revellers get to throw powders into the air to create an explosion of colour and excitement aimed at celebrating togetherness and the colour of everyday life.

Stephan Dau, founder of HOLI ONE Colour Festivals, said: “We’re excited to bring the HOLI ONE experience to London this summer. Wembley Park is a fantastic location and we’re sure everybody who attends will have a great time.

“The festival is all about making friends, coming together and having an unforgettable experience. Everyone is equal at HOLI ONE and everyone leaves looking the same, covered in safe and quality cosmetic powder, with a smile on their face and some great pictures to remember it all by.”

Last year, HOLI ONE Colour festivals were attended by 100,000 people worldwide and took place across cities and countries that included London, South Africa and Berlin.

Tickets are priced from £31.99 per person and can be purchased at http://tickets.holione.com/london

Fashion designer, musician and all-round auteur Danny Passarella turns his senses to art in his out-of-this-world debut exhibition.

The ‘Fantasy Scenes’ in question are ten pieces of wholly original art photography. Their backgrounds feature Danny’s home town of Whitley Bay in the north-east of England, while the subjects themselves are retro arcade machines from the industry’s salad days.

The sci-fi-esque images evoke the wonder of adolescence, and call to mind the importance of visionary thinking to a civilised society.

‘They think I am the most beautiful thing in the world. And I don’t mind being a thing. I don’t want their respect. I want only their animal desire’.

Georgie is 30 with dirty secrets. She drinks in her bedroom and hides from the sun. Leah is 15 with teenage dreams. She practices her cum face and Veets. A lot. All-meat, all-sex, all-vulnerable, all-powerful. There’s a first time for everything… Isn’t there? A punchy and provocative new play by Bruntwood Prize winner Anna Jordan.

‘Incredibly vivid and really upsetting, but in a brilliant way’ (Marianne Elliot on award-winning YEN).
