Created by Somerset House Studios artists Gareth Pugh and Carson McColl, This Bright Land will put togetherness at its heart. From bold attractions including a 35m observation wheel and open-air Vogue Balls, staged in collaboration with Vogue Rites, to parties hosted by creative collectives and Sunday street parties, the festival seeks to encourage connection and collaboration through entertainment and play.

BLM Fest is proud to be on the advisory board for this fantastic project.
