Jupiter Artland at Edinburgh Art Festival

19.08.2023 | Blog | BY:

This weekend Edinburgh lights up at Jupiter Artland. Alongside the many delights and sights of the Edinburgh Fringe, this new programme and festival lands with a bang, as part of Edinburgh Art Festival and with JUPITER RISING. 

Curated by artist Lindsey Mendick, whose solo commission SH*TFACED is currently presented across Jupiter Artland’s galleries, and queer workers’ co-op Bonjour, this year’s JUPITER RISING x EAF features artist-performance, live music, talks, workshops and DJ sets from An(dre)a Spisto and Joana NastariGuy OliverHoney RevlonPink SuitsSgàire WoodsSTASISZiah Ziah and a new commissioned performance by Lindsey Mendick.

JUPITER RISING is set to be a riot – expect dancing, karaoke, DJs, performances and live music across the iconic landscape of Jupiter Artland, 30 minutes from the city centre.

As Kim McAleese, Director of Edinburgh Art Festival describes “Our EAF 2023 programme is one which seeks to platform local grassroots artists alongside those working globally and is a programme which is deeply connected to feminist and queer practice”.

Bonjour’s Late Night Stage brings together two of Scotland’s favourite QTIPOC (and ally) cabaret and club nights MOJXMMA and Q’IWA with sets from Halal Kitty and Jam Eye and performance by Lala Munan, Malaikah, Thea Transformo, Kiki Rivera and Caramella Coins.

“This free event continues Jupiter’s mission to support artists at every stage of their career. It will be an unmissable night” adds Nicky Wilson, Director of Jupiter Artland
