Had enough of zombies yet? No? Well then, you’re going to be all about this update from our horror fiends across the pond! If you’re living in the United Kingdom or feel like booking a flight to Herefordshire, bust out the zombie make-up and let the games begin!
Filming starts on Thursday, 6th August at the Big Chill. From 7pm we’ll be filming the highlight of the zombie festival “The Running Feast”. This will be presided over by King of the Zombies, Noel Fielding, and will be staged as a live event with music from Toddla T and other special guests. Captured humans will be released and chased through an obstacle course by hordes of hungry zombies. Will you be one of them??
In order to take part you’ll need to be a Big Chill ticket holder and look like one of the undead. Once the entertainment area has opened up (around 3pm), you’ll only be able to get into the Open Air Stage field if you’re a zombie. There will be zombie-themed DJ sets and other entertainment to keep you in the mood. Makeup stations will be on site during the day, but we’d love people to turn up already zombified – we want to see your rotting corpses!
Zombies will be especially welcome at British Sea Power’s live accompaniment of Man of Aran and Winged Migration. Then there’s more undead fun with zombie movies from from dusk till dawn in the Film4 Cinema Tent, featuring two of the ‘…Dead’ films by zombie movie legend George A. Romero, John Carpenter’s haunting The Fog and Sam Raimi’s cult horror-comedy classic Evil Dead II. And if you feel like strutting your undead stuff, you can shuffle over to the zombie disco in Big Chill Nights.
