One Tribe Festival comes to the Cholmondeley Castle Estate, Malpas, Cheshire, for an independent, non-profit, non-corporate festival that funds the work of The Green Paw Project.
Set against the spectacular backdrop of Cholmondeley Castle from the 3rd to 8th August 2017, will see a host of world renowned DJ’s and performers descend upon the scenic setting of Malpas for a five-day, music and arts extravaganza with all proceeds going to charity.
Designed for the spiritually and musically conscious, One Tribe Festival is the brainchild of the founders of Audio Farm, who are well known for their legendary electronic nights in Manchester’s Sound Control, Islington Mill, Antwerp Mansion and the infamous ‘Dugout’ Area at Festival Number 6. Operating as an independent, non-profit, non-corporate organism, the festival will help fund the work of The Green Paw Project, a charity that saves the lives of helpless and vulnerable animals in third world countries.
Featuring six stages that will cover a broad range of musical genres, from world tribal, folk, jazz, funk, reggae and acoustic live music to drum & bass, house, techno and psytrance, festival goers can divulge in a plethora of global beats until 6am while the Ambient stage will run 24 hours a day. Guests will also be invited to bring an instrument to join in one of the huge, unplugged musical jams that will take place every night around the fire.
From the founding father and first wave Detroit Techno Soul of Juan Atkins, to current ‘hot as they come’ German hero, Move D, the musical line-up showcases a depth of quality that so many other festivals fail to express. Other highlights will also include, Lone, Psychemagik, DJ Bone, Boddika, Slam, Marcus Intalex, DJ Hype, Calibre, Sonic Species, E-Clip, Fabio & Moon and Gaudi, along with many live performances including, Radioactive Man, Wild Marmalade, Mobius Loop, Henge, Olive Tree Dance, Turbans and Afriquio and many more announced.
With capacity for around 2000 people, family camping, circus workshops, arts and crafts and fire shows for the kids, in addition to a stunning forest setting that will provide the perfect retreat for yoga, meditation and holistic and alternative therapies, One Tribe Festival certainly promises to be a truly transformational, immersive experience that transcends all ages and musical tastes.
One Tribe Festival Director Ste Chesters said:
“If you are a local to Malpas, a lover of diverse world music, love art and culture, have a family, want to avoid corporate festivals whilst giving profits made from your ticket money to charity, then this August come and be part of One Tribe as we grow, learn and push back our horizons. One Love, One Tribe.”
Created as a revolutionary response to the commercial beasts that currently monopolise the UK festival scene by a small gathering of like-minded, music lovers, the One Tribe ethos and spirit has been lovingly nurtured from the home-grown seeds of small, intimate Manchester house parties.
Now, fully-formed and organically grown, One Tribe is backed by over 30 heavyweight collectives who will host stages throughout the five days, including Freerotation, Illuminaughty, Soul:ution, Meat Free, Unity Sessions, Wormfood, 303 Liverpool and Hit & Run to name just a few.
Specifically designed to work in perfect harmony with its beautiful environment, this year’s ethical ‘no trace’ One Tribe offering promises to be a spiritually healing, musically diverse experience that will be as positive for the world’s animals, as it will be for the festival-goer.
