SPECIAL STUFF

The Quindecennial Art Directors

Our 15th year so happened to mark 5 years of SFTOC art direction which transformed our music festival into an whole new and exciting playground for our audience. From the Volkov Commanders in 2013 to last years SoundsTown, each year the art directors have been paramount in making SFTOC a weird and wonderful world of colour, imagination and interactive happenings.

This year we have invited back the artists from all 5 years to work together to made the SFTOC Quindecennial our craziest parallel universe to date.

Our friends at Bound Art Book Fair will be setting up home in MARCs the printers where they’ll be working with photographer Ocean Farini to create and print a limited-run commemorative Quindeccenial zine on the day. Look out for the team on the site and you might be lucky enough to get hold of a copy or even feature in its pages and be forever part of SFTOC history.
