Equinox Festival 2018

26172734_1912925115689682_289306393153707336_oDub Pistols head up to Lincolnshire this Friday to headline the stunning Equinox Festival.

Equinox Festival – A gathering of the tribes. Performance, art, interaction and education for all. Set inside a hill, in the breathtaking Lincolnshire Wolds. Six stages representing all musical tastes, incredible lightshows, family area, fireshows, workshops. For the people not for profit.
Brought to you by the old Alchemy crew….the workers now run the show and are taking it into their third year with their own festival Equinox. For the people, not for profit.

We united to continue with what we all believe is a beautiful thing – Where else do all the tribes come together and celebrate? Didn’t we put on the best party in the universe?! 2016/2017 has shown everyone just what we can do and we plan on doing it all again, even better. So who’s up for another one?!?

There’ll be over one a hundred bands and DJs again on our six stages, including our two dance tents – Sunrise and Lunar, with their crazy decor and stage shows to match. Our solar powered Soundscape stage, The Crispy Disco stage – dedicated to one of the original members of the tribe – Crispian Baker, The Busk Stop and much more! Line-up to be announced, but as ever, we’ll have something for everyone.

32289890_1992202204428639_1437590438042140672_oFire shows created by a pyromaniac genius, workshops and heritage crafts the like of which many of you will never have seen before, healing area, our fire pit and our all new Children’s Area for 2018, co-hosted by Gypsy Pysky & Foolhardy Circus will keep the little ones entertained.

Food and drink? Still bring your own if you want, but our traders will be tempting you with a great selection of food at affordable prices for meat eaters and vegan alike and anything from real ale or a cheeky cocktail or a smoothie to perk you up from that night before, to handmade crafts collected worldwide and glow sticks and ridiculousness too tempting to walk by.

So come join us, show your support for the festival that just won’t stop and the collective tribe that you are part of each September.

Review from Victorious Festival

40131032_10156511927578326_4474858505089581056_nnice review from our show last Sunday Victorious Festival courtesy of eFestivals.co.uk
“If Gomez scaled down and took shelter against the rain, Dub Pistols took the alternative approach. Setting up the band in the far corner of the stage, frontmen Barry Ashworth and Seanie Tee chose to embrace the rain, and happily got as soaked as the audience, spending almost as much time down with the crowd as they did up on stage. Dub Pistols are a quintessential festival group, and their upbeat Ska/dance/hip hop mashup always goes down well whatever the weather. It wasn’t long before the crowd was probably the liveliest it had been all weekend, and get fully into the festival groove. The bands finisher ‘Mucky Weekend’ has never seemed more appropriate in the rain, and helped warm up the damp and muddy audience.”

Beautiful days Review

39535958_10156637847556660_6753925339560280064_oReview of Dub Pistols live at Beautiful Days Festival
“We saw DUB PISTOLS arrive onsite earlier in the day and I made a beeline to chat to Barry Ashworth who told me that they had just played at an incredible festival in Italy and was looking forward to tearing up Beautiful Days in the only way that Dub Pistols can! I was handed a cold beer in their dressing room as the band proceeded to get changed into their stage gear, I took a seat and continued our conversation, Barry chatting about how he’s had a hectic but enjoyable year and the rest of the band saying how much they’d been looking forward to today’s show. They took to the stage bang on schedule and performed a tremendous set, the entire field was bouncing along to their music. Their final offering just HAD to be “Mucky Weekend” and it literally WENT OFF! I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people leaping around like crazed animals at 4:30pm on a Sunday!
