Bio: Kite Festival

GRACE JONES, DAVID MILIBAND, TOM MISCH, ELIZABETH DAY AND MORE ANNOUNCED FOR KITE, A BRAND NEW FESTIVAL OF IDEAS, MUSIC AND COMEDY

KITE is a brand new festival of ideas and music for curious, inquisitive, and cultural minds, bringing together a pioneering line-up of musicians, comedians, artists, writers, activists, and thinkers, all spread across seven unique stages at the magnificent Kirtlington Park in Oxford from 10 – 12 June 2022.   

The music programme will present a line-up comprising exceptional artists with contemporary cultural resonance, brought together by their ability to move the audience’s head, heart, and hips. Grace Jones, off the back of her curation of Meltdown, will lead the music programme, joined by R&B legend Mavis Staples, iconic R&B girl-group TLC, multi-instrumentalist Tom Misch, alternative folk singer-songwriter This Is The Kit, and Afrobeat masters Seun Kuti & Egypt 80.

The ideas programme will ask provocative, fundamental questions in a highly polarised world. World-class public figures, cultural icons, artists, and thinkers will delve into concepts — both big and small — and explore them. From David Miliband to Delia Smith, Rory Stewart to William Dalrymple, Tina Brown to Elizabeth Day, George Monbiot to David Olusoga, Jarvis Cocker to Sathnam Sanghera, an eclectic range of speakers will debate, teach, and converse with a diverse and highly engaged audience. Topics will range from the environment, society, technology, sport and political systems to identity, wealth, the arts, history, globalisation, and sexuality.

Blending a unique line up of music and ideas against the backdrop of a classic British greenfield festival, KITE marks an innovative intervention aimed at collaboratively building a festival for the future.
Early Bird tickets on sale 9am Friday 19th November!
