The date is edging closer and there’s just a few tickets remaining. It’s almost time to once again fall down the rabbit hole into a mind-altering realm of music, magic, entertainment, and merriment.
Alice’s Wicked Tea Party II, The Alternative Live Music Festival, is brought to you by Wicked Spins Radio and the tireless efforts of Mr. Shaun Histed-Todd (Manager at Wickedspinsradio.org [WSR Chatroom & Listen | WSR @ Facebook], Event Organizer and Promoter at Klub Wicked, and Photographer/Digital Guru and Master at Shaun Histed-Todd -Photographer & Digital Illustrator. [Click HERE for our tribe4mian interview with Shaun, The Thirteen Questions.]
Alice’s Wicked Tea Party, or AWTP for short, is the grassroots independent festival where a weird, wild, and exotic mix of bands come together to create a tribal gathering of alternative genres from Post-Punk to Techno-Punk, Electronica to Industrial (EBM/Rock/Experimental), Edgy Rock N’ Roll to Garage Rock, Goth to Art Rock, Psych to Alt Rock.
This intimate festival is limited to 300-tickets and takes place over a two-day weekend starting on Friday, 3 June and ending on Saturday, 4 June, 2016. It will be held at the Cross-Keys Inn in Wimborne, Dorset, UK, where you’ll find two main stages and a chill-out bar with food. Located in the deep dark countryside, there will be lots of activities and stalls with alternative mainstream clothing and accessories to delight your fancy. Weekend tickets cover both Friday and Saturday with FREE camping (limited live-in vehicle parking). Day tickets are also available if you can’t make it for the whole weekend.
The festival offers an intimate experience and the opportunity for friends to gather, to meet new people, and offers the ability to mingle and socialize with the artists themselves.
Held in the grounds of the award-winning pub, The Cross Keys Inn (Holt Heath – Mannington – Wimborne – Dorset), this rural setting is easily accessible, being only 20 minutes from Poole or Bournemouth. The venue boasts two large fields, one for camping and one for the arena. The on-site pub offers great food and drinks, a beer garden, and outside catering… all of which makes this a perfect setting for a great relaxed family festival with a difference.
