Festival starts in


In a dystopian future, a travelling trio of musicians discover an abandoned house – a relic from the old world. As the bandmates explore the ruin, they stumble upon a hidden room full of precious artifacts of a bygone era. It’s a cultural windfall – journals, books, pictures and of course, music. Amongst the trove, one particular vinyl LP catches the band’s attention: The Age of Consent, by 80s synthpop trio Bronski Beat. As they attempt to make out the degraded lyrics to one of its tracks, inspiration takes hold. After uncovering a degraded vinyl album in an abandoned home, three musicians attempt to reimagine one of its songs.
