Well, the Lost Vagueness part of it
The Zutons, the New York Dolls and Julian Cope are among the acts set to perform at a festival organised by the people behind Glastonbury’s Lost Vagueness field.
The bash takes place at the home of the Earl and Countess of Devon, Powderham Castle in Exeter over the weekend of June 23-25. As well as the music, festival goers are promised the “favourite LV acts, performers and characters to host a weekend of Vague style decadence”.
Attractions include the Lost Vagueness Ballroom in a 3,000 capacity big top, with live music, cocktails and cabaret. There’s also the 50’s style American Diner, the Chapel, a VIP piano bar, Slip Disco (with flashing dance floor and guest DJs) and the Casino, with strict dress code, champagne, burlesque and comedy cabaret.
