Festivals

Singing Festivals are fun and fabulous, wierd and wonderful, brilliant and bonkers, magical and musical.

If the weather is kind, there really is nothing as amazing as rolling out of your tent on a hot morning to have nothing more stressful to concern you than making a cuppa and start singing or go to a workshop.

A singing festival offers the opportunity to escape many aspects of ‘normal’ life that really don’t do us any good at all. If you feel busy and rushed in your day to day existence, a singing festival will be laid back and relaxed. If you feel disconnected or isolated, a singing festival will reconnect you with joyfulness, frivolity and friends. All of this, plus singing from dawn to dusk.

Because of the sheer number of fine festivals on offer these days, Roxane tends not to do every festival every year.

Here is a taste of the festivals she works on. She has heard the weather is going to be great this year (2017) so is going to Rise up Singing AND Unicorn. see links below for dates.

Hereford Harmony, a weekend of singing and silliness in June organised by Roxane Smith. The focus of the camp is to be fun and funky.

Unicorn A week long singing camp in August with a focus on community living (camping in circles or small groups) and spirituality. Saturday 5 - Sunday 13 August 2017

Osho Leela Hosted by the community founded by Osho, the festival of Song and Dance is lively and upbeat. The focus is personal development and community. You can camp, stay in a big caravan, or in a dorm in the big house.

Sun, Sea and Song A weekend singing camp in July. The focus is sunbathing and eating scones. A very laid back and informal camp. The only camp I know of that is child free. (this may be something that you like, or perhaps not).

German Voice Camp A week-long singing camp near Hamburg.

Rise-up Singing An 8 day singing camp in August run by the Qi-gong teacher and Nutritionalist Daverick Leggett. The focus of this festival is great food, community and connecting deeply with the voice.

July 21st – 30th 2017

Women in Tune a long weekend in August, this is a women only music festival, with workshops and evening performances. There are even instrumental workshops as well as singing.
