Out of The Ordinary Festival Returns to Sussex

OOTOThe Out Of The Ordinary Festival (OOTO) takes place on Friday September 12th until Sunday 14th September, 2008 at Knockhatch Farm, A22.

After the success of 2007, the OOTO crew is reviving 'Ootopia' with a combination of healing events and ceremonies; inspirational talks and workshops; live music and DJs on the Brighton Flux stage; an ethical market with local foods, wines and ales; and an incredible vibe - all set in the beautiful fields and woodland of the Sussex Downs.

OOTO is an earth mystery family and community festival, focusing on healing, education and entertainment. Powered by alternative energy and love, with a zero waste policy, the festival celebrates the autumn equinox full moon. Running to 5,000 capacity, it is a flagship event for sustainable living, promoting green and ethical businesses.

The focus point of the festival site is a new stone circle dedicated to world peace. This circle encodes the rhythms of the sun, moon and stars and plays a part in reconnecting people to their natural environment.

Talks and workshops will include: the celebrated crop circle expert, Andy Thomas; Philip Carr Gomm, the chief of the order of Bards Ovates and Druids; Professor Gordon Hilman, wild food expert as seen on the BBC2 with Ray Mears; and the popular psychic medium, Jay Love.

Music will be provided by top artists, such as: Banco De Gaia; Katharine Blake; Cry Tuff; Drookit Dogs; Bruise; The Scarlet Street Resistance; The Burlettes; The Adventures of B Violet; The Damn Dirty Humans; Syd Arthur; Sensiriti Sound; King B Fine; Gin Club; New Rising; Unity & Division; Malarki; Keltrix; Brighton Jams; Bethlehem Slouch; Herbal Love; Turiya; Keltrix; Weird Sleeping Kittens and Herbal Love.

Entertainment and attractions will include films, drama, poetry, performance, circus skills, fire dancing, drumming workshops, song and dance.

Stuart Mason, director at OOTO, says: "There's too much misery going on in the UK at present, what with the wash-out summer and endless analysis of the housing market and the credit crunch. OOTO is the perfect antidote to all that is drab and depressing with its focus on inspiration and entertainment, combined with a friendly, family feel. We hope to build on the success of last year with an even bigger and better event."

The Out Of The Ordinary festival (OOTO) takes place on Friday September, 12 until Sunday 14, September, 2008, at Knockhatch Farm on the A22 west of Hailsham.

Two and three day camping tickets are available, as well as single day passes, with prices ranging from £25 to £70. Kids under seven enter for free when accompanied by an adult. Campervan and caravan passes cost £10 and car park passes £5.
