Designed by our very talented friends at Hidythingto celebrate 2 years of the Chill Out Tent. The design is inspired by the now famous musical animations that Hidything have created for all our online events over the last two years, featuring an idyllic rural landscape dotted with our spirit animal, the noble sheep.
And best of all, it’s been printed using low waste technology by a certified organic company in the UK. Add adventure to your every day with this cool new tee. Available now with worldwide shipping. We’ve also got a long sleeved t-shirt and a beautiful art print all made by our manufacturing partner Teemill / Rapanui.
He’s back, our ovine overlord of bucolic Balearic, the Chill Out Tent’s very own Chris Coco with the third edition of his now legendary #Sheepwatch mixes, this Sunday, the 30th May 2021 as part of our Edition #14 of the Chill Out Tent.
He sent this message via carrier pigeon from his secret highland pastures…
‘As everybody knows, sheep watching is a Great British Tradition that dates back to, well, the past, when the workers from our great cities would head out to the countryside to watch sheep and marvel at their animal woolliness. Here, Chris Coco continues that tradition, which is now baked into the mixed-metaphorical fabric of The Chill Out Tent, and creates a soundtrack both for the people watching the sheep and the noble beasts themselves as they go about their grazing and looking-after-the-lambs business. Musically you can expect emotional, slightly epic festival vibes. Think – lounging in a field in the sunshine with your mates, various types of alcohol, a small plastic bag, that you picked up off the grass just now, that seems to contain some sort of unidentified powdery substance, oh, and some sheep, obviously. Expect everything from ambient to Aretha to David to dub… And sheep, lots of lovely sheep…’
We’re back this Sunday, the 30th May 2021 with Edition #14 of the Chill Out Tent, our monthly streaming event celebrating all things calm and chilled out. Another international selection of carefully curated film & music to share with our growing community who gather in the chat room.
More details on all this months contributors over the next few days…
We’re adding to our video archive on YouTube again, some ‘Slow TV’ seasonal content this time. It’s ‘Sheepwatch’ with Chris Coco from our first edition of the Chill out Tent, a sublime ambient set, it’s a fine day…
