Jupiter Rising 27/08/2021 - 29/08/2021

Scotland’s newest small art and music festival Jupiter Rising offers ‘truly memorable nights spent revelling in art, music and nature’. Described as a ‘powerful overview of cutting-edge music and performance’, Jupiter Rising takes place within an iconic landscape of Jupiter Artland, the home of world-class sculpture just outside Edinburgh.

Expect an inventive and experimental programme of live music, sound and performance day and night, artist moving-image and film programmes, talks and discussion, artist-led workshops for all ages, culinary feasting and a whole lot of dancing. A firmly independent and artist-driven festival, Jupiter Rising invites audiences to explore, discover and celebrate underground and DIY practice alongside established and international artists.

Jupiter Rising is a two-night campout festival, starting on Saturday 28 August and finishing up lunchtime Monday 29 August. To experience as much of the programme as possible, we encourage audiences to camp both nights.

JUPITER RISING evolved out of a partnership between Jupiter Artland and Edinburgh Art Festival bringing ROMANTI-CRASH! in 2018 and LUNARNOVA CAMPOUT in 2017.

Reviews

“Jupiter Rising blossoms into its second year, proving itself an essential player in preserving, expanding and celebrating Scottish culture and arts”
“Jupiter Rising must continue to champion the art and music at the fringes, the kind you’ll find in DIY spaces run by queer, anti-capitalist and POC groups — from Glasgow and beyond — who’ve long fought to see themselves represented in their industry. Who knows — they might even be the ones responsible for rebuilding it altogether.”
“It’s a fantastical, fairytale-like space with this incredibly colourful plunge pool at the centre”
