  • KALLIDA moves to a new location in Somerset with a lineup that is both fun and boundary pushing. From Teki Latex's head-spinning blends, to DJ Bus Replacement Service's hilarious musical smorgasbords, there's something for everyone at this 400-cap festival.
  • KALLIDA is a three-day music & arts festival, with a focus on immersive production & soundsystem culture. After two fantastic years at Baskerville Hall, we’re moving to a new location - Sparkford Hall in Somerset. It’s the same mad house party in a different mad house.Expect our usual diverse lineup, attention to detail, full line up of visual artist and intimate setting. KALLIDA is an extremely limited capacity event, and this year tickets are are capped at just 400 - but that doesn’t mean we skimp on the production. Every inch of the beautiful country house is decked out with heavyweight sound systems, sculpture, light shows and films. Whilst camping is free, limited hotel rooms are also available for those looking for a tent free experience. Spend daytimes on the lawn enjoying music from our favourite acts from the worlds of afrobeat, hip hop, jazz and dub, before moving into the mansion at night to rave until the morning to some of the best DJs in underground music - and for our third year we’ve gone bigger than ever. Dub legends Aba Shanti-I will be gracing us with an extended afternoon set. UK Bass and techno star Joy Orbison polymath will be holding court during the night. Club chameleon Teki Latex returns for a second year running, and a Nyege Tapes takeover sees both Kampire and Otim Alpha swing by from Uganda to represent the most exciting club sounds in the world right now. London’s vital new jazz scene will be well repped by Maisha, DjeuhDjoah & Lieutenant Nicholson bring us French afro-pean funk and soul, and Layfullstop is on hand for a taste of Manchester hip hop. That’s far from all. Hardcore originators 2BadMice will be joined by new-school jungles brightest star Sully as well as Exit Records Itoa. EBM is provided by NTS stalwart DEBONAIR as well as Proteus. Madcap hard techno and oddball novelty records meet with DJ Bus Replacement Service, and Off Me Nut Records return for a third year running with Phatworld, Venz, DJ Gurl Power and more. Fresh club sounds come courtesy of Mixpak’s Famous Eno, Moretime Records boss Ahadadream, BBC / RA producer Martha, up and comer bass master Fauzia and Soho radio’s Emily Dust. House and techno comes from Make Me, Pretty Pretty Good DJs and 3024s Yak. VISUAL ARTIST LINEUP & THEME ANNOUNCED! The opportunity to work at a totally new location was too good to turn down and it was the challenge of remodelling an entirely new site that led us to our theme for 2019: Movement. The artists we’re working with have taken this theme and applied it to a range of digital mediums, exploring the intersections of art and technology. See you all there! Tickets are on sale now.
