Tate Modern Festival

Turbine Festival One City One Day

Turbine Festival

A festival celebrating the idea of culture as a common wealth

At the free Turbine Festival 2015, Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall became your playground, your local, your city; and everyone was invited. The programme included an audio-visual day of music, performance, film, installations, food and activities; creating opportunities for and celebration and participation alongside artists, dancers, chefs, DJs, poets, musicians and more.

The festival included performances from Afrikan Boy, Throwing Shade, The Fish Police and Hobbit;  artist commissions by Yuri Suzuki’s Imaginary Record Shop and Rachel Young’s Crowns of Confidence hair salon. Visitors could learn all kinds of new skills in a range of drop-in activities including how to publish your own zine, how to generate poetry, and how to beatbox to name just a few.  

Plus, we invited you to show us what represents your culture, submitting images via #MyCultureMuseum to be displayed in the Turbine Festival museum.
