Hidden City Festival comes to Milton Keynes
New Events Concept Brings Hidden Gems to Life with unique venues: Kicking off with a 2-day Music & Arts Festival this summer!
A new events concept, Hidden City, is set to make waves across Milton Keynes by transforming hidden and quirky spaces in the city into pop-up event spaces. With a focus on music and experiential production, Hidden City has a fresh take on the arts and culture scene in Milton Keynes.
“We believe that Milton Keynes, and it’s boundless growth deserves an equally exciting calendar of events,” said a spokesman for the company, “and we’re committed to finding and transforming hidden gems in the city into unforgettable event experiences. We plan to bring incredible talent and production into the heart of the city centre and significantly add to the existing arts and culture offering within the city. We’ve been working closely with MKCC to bring this to fruition, and they have been incredibly supportive of the project.”
The event company has scoured the city for its most interesting, disused, or hidden spaces, and is set to breathe new life into them with a program of events throughout the year.
“Hidden City is very much a project for Milton Keynes by Milton Keynes, and we are on a mission to make MK the cultural capital of the region” Said its founder Oli Ibrahim. The company’s events aim to use local suppliers wherever possible, collaborate with local business, create local employment and significantly add to event tourism revenue.
Event One, the company behind the concept, has brought the likes of Camelphat, Patrick topping, Chaseand Status, Andy C, Sub Focus, and more to the city previously, and its founder is involved in curating the move of Reggaeland from Campbell park to the National Bowl, in association with Stadium MK this year.
The first event is set to take place this Summer, at a location not yet disclosed and is to feature street food, street art, electronic and live music. With a further follow up, and the most exciting space, unveiled for an event later this year.
