WTF is happening now? is a free one-day contemporary arts festival that brings together performance, music and visual art in the grounds of a country manor. WTF 2014 is the fourth edition of this vibrant biennial festival organised by Chloe Hoare and Kassia Zermon in association with Beatabet.
This year, for the first time, WTF has adopted an open brief model: rather than being asked to adapt their work to fit into a curatorial theme, artists have been given free reign to present their current projects, experiment and test out new ideas. Thus a wonderfully broad selection of art and music will provide something for everyone.
The setting is extraordinary: the beautiful gardens, lawns and paddock of Falmer Court will come alive with projections, large-scale sculpture, interactive installations and performances. Two stages will showcase experimental sound art, live music and performances throughout the day. There will also be a bar, food tent and other stalls. Come and explore the AV caravan, watch an automated sonic turntable and wine glass symphony or join the 5 minute rave! Discover exciting contemporary art in an inclusive, relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.
