IN THE WOODS 2010








Here goes ...................... This is quite a long Blog - but we are hoping this will cover everything from line-up/travel/costs and some previous footage from last years event.

When: Saturday, September 4th 2010
Gates open from 10am Saturday through till Sunday -

Basically - anyone who wants to come has to receive a personal invite - and to get a personal invite they need to join our mailing list by visiting - HERE - and enter your email in the mailing list form box thingy - you will then receive an invite in your inbox.  Alternatively just send us an email with name and email address to -  thelaurelcollective@gmail.com 

Its a very small friendly festival - so this is the only way we can do it and keep it manageable  -

Tickets are £30 - purely to cover costs - If we're lucky to break even, any profit on tickets we'd like to give to charity (Cancer Research).


Unfortunately we cant give you address details yet - but we can tell you its in a beautiful woodland in Kent. We'll give you details nearer the time - becaue its such a small festival and we have to be quite careful so that the police dont shut it down - its legal and everything  :) - we just cant let it get out of hand - thats why we keep the details hidden.

Driving there would be best BUT if you cant -
We'll let you know the nearest train station - and there will be shuttle runs from the station on the day, every 30mins (i.e. everytime a train arrives).

IN THE WOODS (2009)
24mins, MiniDV

Deep in a Kentish woodland, an overgrown quarry plays host to an up and coming music festival.

The Laurel Collective, a London based six piece, clear leaf, twig and tree; assemble scaffold and haul tarpaulin. A bonfire is built and a wickerman is pulled into position.

A captivated audience watches the eight band line up before falling into the heat of a 2am bonfire.

With Anna Calvi, Connan Mockasin, Alessi's Ark, Screaming Tea Party, Pete and the Pirates, Micachu and the Shapes, Laurel Collective and The Invisible, In The Woods is an awe inspiring weekend.

Filmed and edited by Poppie Sk├Âld
With the Laurel Collective
In association with Supine Studios
