What could be more of a Glastonbury affair than a solar-powered stage based in Glastonbury’s mystical Green Fields? Croissant Neuf is exactly that – a sustainable ‘pop-up village green’ complete with performance stages, all nestling amidst the surrounding festival. Croissant Neuf is the second oldest venue at Glastonbury after the Pyramid Stage itself and one of the true guardians of the original Glastonbury Spirit.
For almost thirty years Croissant Neuf has presented a huge range of musical entertainment to the Glastonbury masses across its two eco-friendly stages, with all genres represented, and all sustainably powered by the sun!
At this year’s Glastonbury, BIMM will be teaming up with the seasoned festival folk at Croissant Neuf to present musical performances from a range of BIMM artists at both the Croissant Neuf Main Stage and the beautiful bandstand area too.
Suzi Ireland is Artist Promotion and Festival Manager for BIMM, and is thrilled with the new festival partnership:
“BIMM are very honoured to have been approached by the legendary Croissant Neuf to work together at Glastonbury 2015. We have a host of artists playing across their two solar-powered stages, and the artists cannot wait to play there!”
As well as the musicians, backstage at Croissant Neuf will see BIMM students in action too. The Croissant Neuf bandstand will be stage managed by four BIMM production students, one each from the London, Bristol, Brighton and Manchester colleges. They will take complete charge of running the Croissant Neuf bandstand area during the festival, helping their fellow BIMM students get stage-ready and perform without any hiccups.
The BIMM artists confirmed to perform at Croissant Neuf are The Cadbury Sisters, Paper Hawk, Becky Arundel, Frida Wallin, Sam Brockington and Frankie Furlow. With other BIMM acts popping up elsewhere across the huge five day event, 2015 will be a great year for BIMM to make its mark at the UK’s biggest and best-loved music festival.
