Extinction Underground, VAULT Festival | Extinction Rebellion



A highlights video of the sold-out interactive and immersive late night playground in response to the climate and ecological emergency.
22nd February 2020.

For one night only an array of artists, performers, & radicals took over 5 spaces at the VAULT Festival with vital acts of co-creation, artistic expression, connection to the planet and one another.

Late-night revellers were taken on a journey where rebellion, protest and the arts met: an interactive, disruptive and moving spectacular of grief-stricken expressions and world-building visions of the future – with circus, drag, DJs, flash-mobs, processions, art-making stations, films, face-painting, live music, karaoke and even the opportunity to admit your carbon confessions to a priest.

A celebration and showcase of the unstoppable creativity and community of Extinction Rebellion and the wider movement with headline acts including DJ sets by Edwin Congreave of FOALS and Fay Milton of SAVAGES, The Umbrella Academy star ROB SHEEHAN and slam winning spoken word artist TANAKA FUEGO.
