Space Walk at Blue Dot

Date: 18 July 2019 to 21 July 2019

Location: Jodrell Bank Observatory, Cheshire

Client: From the Fields

Space Walk is designed to give festival-goers a memorable late night experience after the musical line up for the day has finished.


We created The Outer Space, our first experience at the inaugural Blue Dot Festival back in 2016, and returned again in 2017.  This time we returned with Space Walk, an intimate experience designed to give festival-goers the chance to meet around a fiery point of curiosity in late evening, after the musical line up finished for the day.

For 2019 we've created 'Space Walk' - a fiery light and sound experience comprising a series of fire-illuminated metal boxes featuring plasma-cut images of lunar landscapes and the solar system designed by Hannelora Johansson.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the moon landings, the soundscape includes recordings of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin from the Apollo 11 and Lunar Module Eagle mission.

"It's great to be back at this amazing summer festival which creates a fantastic fusion of science and art through an exciting programme of music, events and installations.  Space Walk is a brilliant opportunity to captivate a late night audience with an immersive, reflective piece built around fire and sound."  Nathan Jackson, Producer
