Wind, rain and a raving success!
Take a full dose of festival atmosphere, two booming sound systems, and a large handful of wild party goers and you can begin to imagine the Kynance party event that took place on the special Jubilee weekend, 2 June 2012.
Despite the extremely miserable and drizzly weather, little could dampen the spirits of those attending this organised one night music event situated on the beautiful lizard peninsula, overlooking Kynance Cove.
It is estimated more than 700 people attended this event, most of whom set up tents in the camping area ready for a night of nocturnal madness by the seaside.
Across two fabulously decorated, weatherproof marquees and a double decker bus with a well stocked bar inside, the wind and rain went truly unnoticed (apart from the few unfortunate people that found themselves queuing for the portaloos).
With some of the Westcountry’s best entertainment and a team of dedicated organisers, the night air was filled with flashing lights and beats impossible to stay still too. With performances from some of the county’s best DJs, the musical genre varied from funky house to impressive breakbeat and the finishing touch of euphoric psytrance to end the night.
Food on offer ranged from crumpets to burgers, but as expected at these sorts of events the prices weren’t the cheapest. For those who were prepared enough to bring their own refreshments, they made their way back and forth between the music tents and the camping area. For 99 per cent of the time, this journey meant tumbling over the hedge as a hilarious alternative to the ever so slightly longer yet safer roadside route.
With an exciting vibe and harmonious atmosphere attracting the weird and the wonderful people from Cornwall and afar, seven hours of non-stop dancing and smiles within a time warp of truly Cornish celebration took place.
At the reasonable price of £16 per person there were next to no technical hiccups and for once a surprising array of friendly security staff.
Predictably, there were a small handful of attendees who had exceeded their limits and ultimately missed what could have been the best night of their year to instead be in a messy heap on the floor. However, all in all there didn’t seem to be any cases for medical concern and the general consensus was to party hard and deal with the consequences in the morning.
