After a spectacular first run of events, we’re pretty damn pumped to open the doors of Baskerville Hall to Kallida Festival again this June. Once more, the 19th century mansion’s grandeur will be cloaked in visual, light and sound installations, as the team behind this burgeoning boutique festival have worked all year-round to ensure they deliver both an individualistic and unforgettable experience.
Now a whole day longer, this lil’ jam surrounded by stunning countryside boasts a diverse lineup across both the day and the night. During the day, guests can enjoy music from the worlds of afrobeat, hip hop, jazz and dub, before moving inside for the house party portion of the festival to throw shapes until the early hours to some of the world’s best underground DJs.

Festival goers can expect sounds from one of the most in-demand DJs in techno today, Daniel Avery, as well as Channel One who come hand-in-hand with their bone-rattling sound system, Rockwell, Children of Zeus, Off Me Nut Records, Afrobeat band Kokoroko, Jus Now, Phatworld, Lord Apex, K.O.G, afro, latin and UK bass collective The Busy Twist and afro-electronic super group Afriquoi, to name a few.
Collision Frequency – a new partnership between Diplomats of Sound, Kallida Festival, Rinse FM, Rinse France and Le Bureau Export – will also be brining three incredible global acts to the scene. Guests will be treated to hyperactive bass music from Egypt’s Rozzma on his first UK tour; Nigerian-born, Berlin-based vocalist and songwriter Wayne Snow, and we’ll also be joined by the sublime Franco-Japanese electronic jazz duo Kodama.
Not only that, the 19th century mansion will also host an exciting array of mesmerising light and art installations, as not only do the team behind Kallida believe this to be a vital part of your experience, the inside of the mansion is an unbeatable backdrop for experiential production.
2018 brings yet another great selection of talented new media artists, engineers and sculptors to totally transform the grounds
We’ve been told that they have vastly improved their offering in this department this year, as 2018 brings yet another great selection of talented new media artists, engineers and sculptors to totally transform the grounds, such as neon artist Will Kendrick, internationally renowned Aphra Smeza and the esteemed VJ Mowgli. Guests can also expect a video dome from Biztar, plus new artistic duo Louis Shambles and Rosy Vivi who will be creating an installation outside the forest.
