Find Your Happy Place
The idea for The Tent came out of trying to build a community in lockdown that would usually exist in real life; it’s now about keeping our music and related arts alive in these strange times.
The Chill Out Tent is the alternative event you always wanted at a festival, a new way to relax and enjoy music and visuals, a mini festival beamed directly to you in your own home.
So far, TCOT have produced six events, five Sunday evenings and an epic 24 hour stream for the summer solstice, starring a selection of DJs including Mr Scruff, Rob Da Bank, Danielle Moore from Crazy P, Mixmaster Morris, Julia Tupinamba; featuring a movie premiere (Born Balearic – Jon Sa Trinxa and the spirit of Ibiza), broadcasts from a forest in Bali, a sunset in S Korea, interviews with music legends Maxi Jazz and Norman Jay, ambient sets from Tokyo and an after party in Ibiza.
We’re now running regular streams on the last Sunday of each month.
The streams go out on The Chill Out platform, LiveFrom, and Mixcloud, so the streams are solid, top quality and legal.The aim is to celebrate and share beautiful film, music, art and interviews around a theme of chilled positivity.
Edition 7 of the Chill Out Tent is broadcast on Sunday 25th Oct and features a Dj set from a Yorkshire farm from, Flash Atkins, AKA Stubb. There’s a full play of Nightmares On Wax seminal ‘Smokers Delight’, which celebrates it’s 25th Anniversary this Sat; do you feel old?! Yup, us too. Then it’s down to the south coast for Dj sets from 1BTN selectors, which were filmed on Brighton sea front at the end of the Summer, set in glorious sunshine and a beautiful sunset to match. There is also a short 1BTN documentary, as well as a lovely filmed interview between Brooklynites, Tim Wagner, of Our Starry Universe records and singer/songwriter/fireball, Amy Douglas. The after party comes courtesy of Modet out of Barcelona.
See you in the sun!
Turn, Stay In, Chill Out
Rest In Power, Jose Padilla!
