A brand new festival featuring the hottest talent around-from Rankin to Damien Hirst, Speech Debelle and Battersea Arts Centre.
Combining the best in new talent alongside established industry icons, this will be a weekend to remember.
Rankin and Damien Hirst will be bringing their Myths, Monsters and Legends installations to life at the festival.
Most famous for filling Trafalgar Square with 30,000 bananas in 2004, Doug Fishbone will be bringing his own brand of Crazy Golf to Nova. Each hole on the course will be designed a different artist with contributions from Jake Chapman, Brian Griffiths, Gary Webb, Zatorski and Zatorski, and Pete Fowler with more to be announced soon. Better still, the entry fee for playing goes straight to Action Aid’s reconstruction efforts in Haiti, so everyone's a winner on this course.
Nova’s bespoke cinema The Flicker Club are hosting a twisted night of Alice in Wonderland surprises. You can forget all your comforting memories of dear old Disney's version, for this is Jan Svankmajer's 1988 film version of Alice in Wonderland (my personal, all time favourite film interpretation of the tale).
The Pleasance will be showcasing The Pick of the Pleasance – a series of performances including the Late Night Gimp Fight (talk of the town at Edinburgh last year), Abandoman, Doc Browns, Pappy's Max & Ivan, The Beta Males, Ginger & Black, Delete The Banjax and Sheeps. The Battersea Arts Centre will be showcasing Gooseparty, their intense party of sassy pseudo-fiesta funk, electronica gender anthems, dirty agro railway blues, plus a bit of the strummy soft stuff for the lovers of the lonely, in a high octane evening of madcap musical wildness, wilderness and general “gooseyness” which will sure to inspire and thrill the minds of all who are involved.
When surrounded by such a massive amount of fun, it’s expected that some may go a little overboard. Nova are fully prepared for those who are in need of festival therapy with their rejuvenation areas. From Soul Pads for Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy, Thai massage, Shiatsu, Acupressure, Reflexology, Indian Head, Reiki, Tui Na, Bliss Domes for sound and light baths plus Yoga, Wild Run and Hot Tubs – they’ll be no shortage of avenues to get your mojo back and geared for all the spectacular experiences that Nova has to offer.
