Turbine Festival

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

An audio-visual feast of music, performance, installations and activities, free to all and sponsored by Hyundai Motor.

Visitors will be able to enjoy an alternative hair salon, make their own drinks at a pop up juice bar and much more.

A variety of performances and music will be live on stage throughout the day including Grime/HipHop/AfroPop artist Afrikan Boy and poet Jacob Sam-La Rose.

As part of the event, Tate Modern will also host a programme of bite-sized short films in collaboration with London Short Film Festival and a series of interactive workshops including beatboxing, poetry and crafting.

Visitors can also contribute to the special project My Culture Museum by submitting photographs or bringing objects on the day to be archived and curated for the Festival. The public will be able to submit images via social media from today which will be displayed as part of the event.

Everyone will be invited to interact with specially commissioned installations, including sound artist Yuri Suzuki’s pop-up record shop where visitors can create their own designs for vinyl record sleeves, and a London bus built specially on the day by artist John Costi.

One of the inspirations behind the Turbine Festival is the work of artist Nam June Paik (1932-2006), the renowned South Korean artist widely considered to be a pioneering figure of multimedia art.
