Times: 14:00 - 18:00
Mr Kite’s MUSICIRCUS!
John Cage Trust
04 June, 14:00 – 17:50
Inspired by ‘Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite!’
While the Beatles were recording Sgt Pepper in Britain, across the Atlantic experimental genius John Cage was creating his own musical masterpiece.
Now, 50 years on, Sgt Pepper and Cage’s Musicircus are being entwined in an audacious fairground ride of sights and sounds to create an immersive sensory spectacular.
Mr Kite’s MUSICIRCUS! takes place over one whirligig afternoon at Aintree Racecourse and is one of the biggest and most ambitious events of the entire Sgt Pepper programme.
Inspiring, noisy, joyful and anarchic, definitely not to be missed. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
Using the Beatles’ back catalogue as inspiration we are asking thousands of local people, performers, amateur and professional musicians to help us create this strikingly original performance.
‘You won’t hear anything: you’ll hear everything!’ John Cage.
