Event description
The Nest Collective invites you to enjoy a beautiful outdoor concert with Dizraeli and Kitty Macfarlane.

About this Event

This August, we are gathering in beautiful green spaces in London, Bristol and Sheffield to hear extraordinary live music.

In the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, we will come together around the fire to enjoy music, food, drink, and the company of others.

For those of you that can’t join us in person, we’re very excited to be bringing the magic of music and nature to you in your homes via our Campfire Club: Live online broadcasts. Simply purchase a digital live-stream ticket to tune in for the early evening performances (6pm - 8pm) from the comfort of your home. Each broadcast will be presented by folk singer Sam Lee, who will introduce you to the two artists performing around the campfire that evening.

These events are going ahead subject to the anticipated change in regulations allowing for outdoor performances. In the event that these events are not able to go ahead, full refunds will be available.

There will be no on-site catering available; you are welcome to bring your own food. Please do not bring your own alcohol, as we will be running a bar.

We are thrilled to share the line up of outstanding artists who we will be featuring across the series:

• Saturday 8th August in London: Sam Amidon, Hannah Read

• Wednesday 12th August in London: The Hut People, Kadialy Kouyate

• Saturday 15th August in Sheffield: Rowan Rheingans, Jim Moray

Dizraeli

Poet, producer, MC and multi-instrumentalist, Dizraeli is a genre all of his own. In the past few years, having composed the soundtrack for parallel-universe drama Tripped on E4, won the BBC Poetry Slam Championship and led the groundbreaking band Dizraeli & The Small Gods to underground success, he has built himself a cult following around Europe and played to audiences of thousands around the world. He’s supported Saul Williams and Mos Def on their UK tours, worked with Kate Tempest and Scroobius Pip and had his music played on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Radio 2, Radio 3, Worldwide FM and 6Music. His 2019 album The Unmaster was made after 3 years studying percussion in Senegal, immersing himself in the world of London grime and bass music, working with refugees in Calais and finally, living through a mental breakdown, and was his first self-produced album showcasing an electrifying new sound.

“A brave and wildly different sound… startling” – Tom Robinson, 6 Music

“A vital, poetic voice in UK rap” – The Line of Best Fit

Kitty Macfarlane

Kitty Macfarlane is a Bristol-based songwriter and accomplished guitar player. Her sharply observed narrative songs are pure poetry, rich with visual imagery and written with an eco-eye – bound loosely by the theme of mankind’s relationship with the wild. This autumn sees the release of Kitty Macfarlane’s highly anticipated debut album Namer of Clouds, produced by Sam Kelly and Jacob J Stoney and featuring a recognisable cast of musicians.

Gathering inspiration from the sky to the seabed, Kitty’s lyrics touch on intervention and rewilding, climate change and migration and one singular song which is a magical aural tapestry of woman’s historical relationship with textiles and the land. From the starling murmurations on the Somerset Levels to the lowly eel’s epic transatlantic migration, and the small part we ourselves play in a much bigger picture.

“Her remarkably accomplished debut album, Namer Of Clouds, beguiles with its poetry and tenderness” – Guardian

Keeping you safe

We are taking a number of measures to help everyone feel safe during these concerts, including:

  • Significantly reducing our audience numbers
  • Operating a safe queuing system at the bar
  • Running a paperless, cashless system - card payments only please
  • No printed tickets required, our door staff will have your order details
  • Staff will be wearing PPE
  • Hand sanitiser will be available on arrival, at the bar and at toilets

In return, we ask that you:

  • Keep to the timings for the show you have booked
  • Show your ticket on a mobile device rather than printed tickets
  • Keep a safe distance away from other visitors and staff, and respect the safeguarding wishes of others
  • Wash your hands using hand sanitiser at appropriate points
  • Support our staff by showing patience whenever queuing is required
  • Use your own personal protective equipment (PPE), if you choose to do so
  • Regrettably, please do not bring dogs to any of our events
  • Keep your belongings with you at all times and take your litter home

Our audiences say:

“The music of all the Campfire Club gigs I went to was outstanding, but what really makes them special is the atmosphere – beautiful, intimate venues, attentive listening and lovely people really make these idyllic ways to spend an evening.”

“This event was phenomenal. I cannot wait until I have an opportunity to attend another one. It was well organised and the musicians were something else. I certainly didn’t feel as though I was in Peckham, but some enchanted woodlands.”

“Walking into a wonderland of nature with beautiful music and people, it made me feel wonderfully elated.”
