Volcano Extravaganza explodes into life for a seventh year, co-curated with Fiorucci Art Trust.

This July, The Vinyl Factory will return to southern Italy to co-curate an expanded edition of Europe’s most unique arts festival with Fiorucci Art Trust. 2017’s Volcano Extravaganza will begin on the mainland in Naples before setting sail for the island of Stromboli on an aquatic adventure mirrored in the year’s theme, I Polpi (The Octopus).

Inspired by the transformative, shape-shifting cephalopod, artist Eddie Peake will lead the year’s activities on a 96-hour dance across several stunning locations. Peake will be accompanied by electronic producer Actress, musician Gwilym Gold, interdisciplinary artist Evan Ifekoya with Victoria Sin, and poet and writer Holly Pester in imagining new variations of his genre-bending work.

Peake reunites with Actress having recently provided the inner-sleeve artwork to AZD, the producer’s comeback LP on Ninja Tune.

The performances will knit together site-specific physical works, whether revisiting Peake’s 2012 naked football match ‘Touch’ or his 2005 work ‘Fox’, in which actors will attempt to swap costumes on the ferry between Naples and Stromboli.

Once on the island, the festival will turn to legendary Balearic originator Leo Mas and London DJ Jonjo Jury for a party under the stars at Stromboli’s legendary club Megà.

Volcano Extravaganza 2017 will take place between Naples (13-14 July 2017) and Stromboli (15-16 July 2017). Peake will subsequently release a box set of the performance soundtracks on vinyl via his HYMN label and The Vinyl Factory.
