    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    Treat yourself to this incredible overnight sleep concert on the longest night of the year – the winter solstice. This event features an amazing lineup of artists, all specialists in the science of ambient music: Erika Grant (Orchestra of Spheres); Riki Gooch (Cave Circles, Tuone Conduction Ensemble); Chris O’Connor (Phoenix Foundation); David Long (The Labcoats, Teeth); Nick Hyder; Zak Winterwood; Holly Winterwood; and Ben Wood on sound (Dawn Diver).

    Each ticket buyer is provided their own bed. During the concert, you can stay awake, snooze, sleep, and also get up and walk around to other parts of the venue, adjacent to the sleeping area – it’s over to you how you would like to take in the event. As the night unfolds and the artists weave their intricate tapestry of sound, you are invited to succumb to the transformative power of deep sleep, drifting between varying states of slumber while the music plays around you.
