Tour de Moon 2022

Tour de Moon

Unboxed: Creativity in the UK 2022 will take you on a mission to the MOON in May 2022. Tour de Moon will be in Newcastle in May 2022 however specific dates are yet to be confirmed. Newcastle will be one of only 4 UK cities to host the Tour de Moon festival next year and it will be a fully magical, lunar experience!

The Tour de Moon is a festival of ideas inspired by our ‘universal satellite’, the Moon, held on a festival site created for young people and their families.

Take a cosmic Journey into the possibilities of tomorrow, created in collaboration with our universal satellite - the Moon.

Tour de Moon is a two-month festival of performances, installations, interactive experiments and immersive experiences - created by a galaxy of nightlife artists, musicians, digital dreamers, writers, scientists, technologists and creative pioneers aged 18-25. Together, they'll consider and challenge our current ways of living - and engage our imagination.

The Moon might be a faraway landscape, but to the Tour de Moon team, it’s also a sentient being: a living character who can help us shape new futures. Taking a tour across four cities in the UK and then journeying, Tour de Moon consider the consequences of human life here on Earth.

Tour de Moon is a far-reaching collection of live shows, nightlife events, digital experiences and public activities that will connect us with our lunar satellite. Join us – and the Moon – to dream our futures together.

Eight missions with the moon

There are eight distinct strands to Tour de Moon. Each strand has a focus on night-time culture, and each one is being co-created with young people aged 18-25 recruited through an open call:

  • Moon Experiences
    Series of live immersive experiences in Newcastle, Leicester and Southampton to inspire you to consider your time on Earth – and to discuss and experience future utopias beyond our planet.
  • Moon Music
    Moon Music seeks to bring their voices together and reflect on their thoughts, opinions and vibes – weaving in sounds of the galaxy recorded by receivers around the Earth.
  • Moon Hotline
    Connect to the Moon through playful interactive experiments, digital experiences and live-streamed events.
  • Moon Sports
    Explore how sport could help us to rethink our collective futures on Earth, in space and perhaps beyond in our playground of giant inflatables, created with community sports groups and youth organisations.
  • Moon Cinema
    Reimagine our relationship with the Moon, the universe and each other with screenings of specially commissioned films and live midnight-mass cinema.
  • Moon Bar
    A forum for discussion – enter the Moon Saloon to watch, engage with and take part in multidisciplinary talks and workshops about the Moon and more.
  • Moon Press
    Run collectively by 18- to 25-year-olds, the Moon Press co-operative is an urgent intervention to create space for underrepresented writers, thinkers and artists – publishing across conventional and unexpected media, from printed books and digital publications to billboards, cereal boxes and much more.
  • Moon Convoy
    Experience the travelling parade, touring England’s highways, byways, towns and cities – including Newcastle - and concluding with a grand finale in Hackney, London.
