Prepare to giggle: Your Comedy Line Up just in

We’re bringing the funny!

Here it is, your Funny Side line-up for #LeoXIII!
Friday night will be headlined by the hilarious Bristol-born Jayde Adams. Jayde’s incredible stand-up routines have won her the 2014 Funny Women Award as well as seeing her nominated for Best Newcomer at Edinburgh 2016.

Saturday night’s headline laughs will come from I’m A Celeb finalist and Netflix Comedians of the World star, Joel Dommett. Joel quickly established himself as one of the most energetic and exciting comedians on the circuit and has received critical acclaim.

There are so, SO many incredible comedians to catch over the weekend from the sell-out International Joke Off, Cornwall’s very own Anna Kierle, brutally honest Bristolian Louise Leigh, BBC regular ARTHUR SMITHIvo Graham the youngest ever winner of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny award for new acts at the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as our amazing MCs for the weekend, Balls of Steel’s Marc Dolan, and ‘stand out stand-up’ Christian Russell-Pollock, plus many, many more!

Drumroll please, your Leopallooza XIII Fancy dress theme is here...

Utopia_more.gif

Imagine a world based on happiness. A world based on being kind to strangers. A world based on being kind to the planet. Imagine being able to lose yourself in a world where you can listen to your favourite bands, hang out with your favourite people, and dance like nobody’s watching.

Sounds idyllic, right?
Sounds like The Wyldes.
Sounds like UTOPIA!

Utopia: an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect.

And there we have our fancy dress theme for this year! We know you lot love a dress up theme on a Saturday night, and this year involves more than just popping on a pair of bunny ears. This is where you need to get creative…

How do you see Utopia? Or would it be more of a dystopia?

Will clothing be fashioned entirely from recyclable materials we would normally throw out? Or will the dad trainer trend get completely out of hand and inspire our entire outfits? It’s your chance to design your version of a Wylde Utopia and wear it loud and proud…

We will be running a competition to win some #LeoXIII goodies across social media - just upload a photo of you in your full Utopian glory and tag it with #WyldeUtopia. Extra marks for keeping it eco and upcycling things you find around the house! Winner drawn after the event.

Introducing Wylde Bucks- your shiny new Pallooza Piggy Bank

THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT 

We’ve been saying for years that The Wyldes should become its own nation. A nation based on having a good time, being kind to strangers, protecting the planet, and dancing like nobody’s watching seems like a pretty good alternative to reality right now...

Our first step towards creating that Utopia has been reached. This year we are introducing...our very own currency, the Wylde Buck! Queueing for too long and missing the start of your favourite band is the stuff of festival nightmares, this will speed everything up and we can all get back to doing what we’re here for.

How does it work? Top up your account now, collect your wristband when you get here, and pay for drinks, merch and the biggest burger in Palloozaville with a mere tap of the wrist. Easy peasy!

Let the Hon. Buchanan ‘Buck’ Wyldington esq. show you how it’s done.

Get cracking and top up your account now

PS. Have we just dropped a sneaky hint about our dress up theme? All will be revealed very soon...
