LEOPALLOOZA 9

 

Leopallooza Festival in North Cornwall


The Wyldes Week St Mary, near Bude, North Cornwall


Leopallooza is a festival, held since 2006, which happens at Week St Mary, near Bude, in North Cornwall. This event is billed as a place where live music, tents, alcohol, good good people, sausages, sun, mud, burning cars, appreciation of the north Cornish nation, cider, neon, power riffs, straw, rain, rumours, fields and portaloos collide. The  centrepiece is a car, which is loaded with wood and set on fire. It has had different guises. It's been a Zebra and the General Lee. The festival site is built using reclaimed materials, wherever possible, making the handcrafted stages/bar/eatery unique and a welcome alternative to Formica and steel. A crew of friends dedicated to the local music scene help build and maintain the festival site year round. They design the leaflets, organise the marketing and sell the tickets. They even work on the night and forego the partying (at least until later on.)
