DUB PISTOLS RETURN TO ELECTRIC CASTLE

DUB PISTOLS RETURN TO ELECTRIC CASTLE

dp 20Dub Pistols continue their residency at Romania’s premier festival “Electric Castle in Cluj again this year.
The Pistols consider EC to be one of the best festivals in the world and feel its a real honour to have been
involved in every edition to date.
This year the band will perform a special show to celebrate their 20th Anniversary and bring in special guest that include Rodney P, Mc Sir Real and Dark Horizon Seanie Tee.

Electric Castle is a music festival that takes place in July, on the spectacular Transylvanian domain of the Bánffy Castle, near Cluj-Napoca in Romania. The festival is a unique festival experience that combines music, technology and alternative arts. It features many genres of music including rock, indie, hip hop, electronic and reggae, as well as art installations.

The festival was shortlisted for 4 times at the European Festival Awards for the Best Medium Sized Festival Category, among other famous European names. In 2016, over 120.000 people visited the festival grounds during the event.[1] On its past editions, the festival had confirmed names such as The Prodigy, Skrillex, Bring Me The Horizon, Fatboy Slim, Sigur Ros, Bastille, Rudimental, Thievery Corporation, Die Antwoord and many other artists that performed on one of its seven stages.

Dub Pistols confirmed to headline Beautiful Alice Festival

Dub Pistols confirmed to headline Beautiful Alice Festival

17880314_1648981332076155_5181189554600101712_oDub Pistols are very proud to announce they will be headlining this years Beautiful Alice Festival 2017
and help to bring awareness to this fantastic charity that takes place on June 3rd in St Albans

All Know the way, but few actually walk it


Tragically, at the end of 2014, our Beautiful Alice (19) – and her wonderful friend Summer (21) – were cruelly taken from us in a terrible accident that could, and should, have been prevented. They were coming home to us in just 4 days, having spent the previous 10 weeks volunteering – through the government backed International Citizen Service – in an impoverished township in South Africa. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

We are fighting to prevent such tragedies from happening again and are now working closely with the UK government’s Department for International Development (through Voluntary Service Overseas and ICS), and with international experts, to improve safety standards for young volunteers abroad and to increase worldwide awareness of rip currents. Our loss is unbearable but we are trying to find the courage to keep going. One of the ways we are doing this is by raising money to support some of the projects that Alice felt so passionately about in her short – but wonderful – life.

Alice worked on several projects supporting local, needy communities in both South Africa and Cambodia. She was a fierce campaigner for human and animal rights and fought injustice where ever she found it. Alice loved music, dancing and sunshine. She described her favourite festival – The Secret Garden Party – as ‘a little piece of heaven on earth’.

We have organised our own festival to honour Alice and all that she stood for. Following the huge success of our event last year, we are proud to be hosting Beautiful Alice Festival 2017 – on June 3rd in St Albans, Herts, UK. The event is being held on private farm land and we are hoping for around 2000 people to join us to celebrate Alice’s colourful life in a way that would make Alice proud.

All profits will go to support charities that Alice believed in, both in the UK and abroad – including the organisation in Cambodia, The Future of Khmer Children, who we are actively working with and where we have already been able to provide funding for a whole new classroom, essential repairs and maintenance to existing buildings, supplies at the school and a clean water well for local villagers.

We have had hugely generous offers of help and expert assistance pouring in, including a fabulous line up – artists and performers have offered their services for free and everyone on site will be making a donation to our charities. We are confident that our Beautiful Alice Festival will be an amazing day and will be the foundation for us to build on in the difficult years ahead.

There are two ways of spreading light: To be the candle or the mirror that reflects it…

Thank you so much for helping us to continue to keep Alice’s light shining brightly in any way you can, and do get in touch if you would like any further information.

bbb62b_6bdc6c749a894f38ae9284d85d9a072dLove Always,

Alice’s mum – Suzie, and Alice’s cousins – Joe and Adam. XXX
