The Chillout Tent is a series of live streamed events from an imagined chillout space in a virtual festival.
Sunsets in Ibiza, sheep watching in Scotland, little fluffy clouds in Arizona…
Turn on…stay in… chill out…
The Story so far…
The idea for The Tent came out of trying to build a community in lock-down that would usually exist in real life; it’s now about keeping our music and related arts alive in these strange times.
The Chill Out Tent is the alternative space you always wanted at a festival, a new way to relax and enjoy music and visuals, a mini festival beamed directly to you in your own home. It’s free to watch, funded by the over enthusiastic founders.
So far, we have produced thirteen events, twelve Sunday evenings, an epic 24 hour stream for the Summer solstice, and 12 days of one hour streams, our festive 12 Days of Chillout.
The streams have featured a selection of DJs, producers and film makers including Mr Scruff, Rob Da Bank, Danielle Moore from Crazy P, Daniele Baldelli, Julia Tupinamba; a movie premiere (Born Balearic – Jon Sa Trinxa and the spirit of Ibiza); broadcasts from a forest in Bali; a sunset in South Korea; interviews with music legends Maxi Jazz and Norman Jay; ambient sets from Tokyo; a documentary about Boards if Canada; vintage footage from Cafe Del Mar; and an after party in Ibiza.
We’re now running regular streaming events on the last Sunday of each month. The streams go out on our favourite platform Mixcloud, so the streams are solid, top quality and legal.
Our aim is to celebrate and share beautiful film, music, art and interviews around a theme of chilled positivity.
