UPLOAD Virtual Festival
Sat 27 & Sun 28 June @ 2-11pm
UPLOAD Virtual Festival is a benefit festival set up to support vulnerable arts organisations and to connect through culture. The festival, hosted by BBC Radio Nottingham presenters and endorsed by celebrities including Imelda Staunton CBE took place on the 27th and 28th June at STREAM PARK, Nottinghamshire’s first interactive digital park. 157 acts and organisations took part in the festival including acclaimed Choral Director Mark De-Lisser, former Electric Light Orchestra member Dave Scott-Morgan, The Clangers and Chicago leading lady Elizabeth Stenholt. Two special projects were commissioned for the festival: 'Stories From the Home Front' with Right At Home which brought an insight into the lives of key workers and the people they care for from across Nottinghamshire; and a discussion with composer Errollyn Wallen CBE on an arrangement she composed to accompany the singing of Keedron Bryant's 'A Young Black Man' as a tribute to George Floyd’s death, performed by Clean Bandit and friends. The festival was partnered with seven core organisations: Inspire Culture Learning and Libraries, Nottingham Playhouse, Nordoff Robbins (Music Therapy), Nottingham Trent University, University of Nottingham, MLC Academy and Community Recording Studio. The event welcomed 3227 visitors across 480 locations worldwide and raised £1445 for charity.
