June 18 5pm-11pm

Artman returns with their latest performance party Artman Solstice Pollination at the Hive. Showcasing new artists and new work, Artman can’t wait to share another night of creative revelry with our friends and friends to bee!

With live music, comedy, theatre, spoken word, rap, djs, Artman’s welcoming vibes and belief that festivity comes first, this will be a evening of unbridled happiness and joy!

Featuring: Delta Lima, Corral Torrisi and the Lost Band, The A.E. Ensemble, IDIOT, Henry AK Smith, Queen of Burlesque Maggie Sagtease and DJ…

Delta Lima: Burning talent of spoken word and hip hop, Delta Lima performs his newly released single “Inside” (featured in the film Hall of Mirrors / Empyrean Entertainment) courtesy of Cultured Sounds.

If there was ever an artist who is at the beginning of a career of a great music, Delta Lima’s work to date shows a man over flowing with talent, intelligence and creativity. A listen to Delta Lima’s Sound Cloud will immediately persuade you that this man has longevity and style.

Corral Torrisi and the Lost Band: Swing jazz, Spanish, English, guitar, clarinet, cello, sax, songsters of corpus, corazon and all things “morning after”…this recently birthed family of troubadours are made for dance-floors, lovers, the sunrise and wine.

The Artman English Ensemble: Get Roland. Having recently performed in Barcelona and Madrid to laughter exhausted public, the A.E. Ensemble is best summarised by an audience member comment, “You lot are absolutely mental! It was so much fun. We all had a total blast.” Get Roland is a wild, revenge comedy, with stomach churning themes straight out of a Greek tragedy…murder, megalomania, sex-addiction and fashion…You’re going to love Roland Astaldi!!! An hour of comedy that is guaranteed to leave you in pieces!!!

Henry AK Smith: comedian, performance artist, musician, maverick and madman…Henry is hardcore. Every one of Henry’s creations entertains, shocks and confounds in various extremes. Some might call him a genius others might say he’s wrong, we just fucking love him and can’t wait to see what’s up!

IDIOT: Performance art comedy trio of whom only two will appear, their absurdity is only surpassed by their idiocy. IDIOT will be hell bent on making fools of themselves, no matter what, IDIOT are ridiculous. IDIOT are habitually under-rehearsed!

QUEEN OF BURLESQUE MAGGIE SAGTEASE: Margaret Thatcher discovers her true vocation from beyond the grave and strips to the sweet sounds a ukulele – what more could you wish for!

For soft drinks and great food the Hive has a superb cafe, for anything with alcohol content please feel free to bring your own.

As with all Artman events we guarantee you the afterglow of festive satisfaction…We’ve enough solstice nectar for even the hungriest of party-bees. Can’t wait to see you for some Artman Pollination :))

Big love to all X
