Is this summer 2019's biggest new festival?

April Fool: A new Brexit-themed party will be all at sea – but is hoping to become a regular fixture for the summer season

By Rick Jordan, Condé Nast Traveler

The 2019 festival calendar is looking busier than ever, with the return of Glastonbury in June after a year out, the launch of new parties such as Belle and Sebastian’s The Boaty Weekender in August, and the curious affirmation of the Albanian Riviera as a music destination, with Kala Festival being held there for a second year, joined by the three-day Unum, a house-and-techno event at the end of May in Shengjin.

But there’s one new festival that’s set to cause a real splash. X-It Festival will take place this summer on a disused sea fort (similar to the one pictured) between the UK and the European mainland – and it will be themed around Brexit. ‘We feel everyone’s become a little demoralised and fed up by the whole thing,’ says co-organiser Sen Prudentulo, ‘and this will introduce some much-needed fun and hijinks to the debate, regardless of which way you voted. If you’re feeling deflated, then we’ll have the inflatables to help – and some great DJs. We’re hoping it will be every bit as successful as the Millennium Experience. And because of the festival’s very nature, everyone will be a Leaver and a Remainer at some point.’

Along with DJs and live music, the X-It Festival will include games of tug-of-war, blindfold discos and Morris dancing, and a zipwire for which participants are encouraged to dress up as Boris Johnson. Some of Dublin’s most creative bar-tenders will be setting up the Irish Backstop bar, while fresh seafood will be served at the Norway Plus stalls, and Furtive Cinema will be screening European art-house movies such as Last Year in Marienbad and La Dolce Vita alongside British classics including Dad’s Army, Deal or No Deal and It’s a Knockout. The organisers are also hoping to include elements from 2017’s legendary Fyre Festival, and have asked Chris Grayling to help with ferries transporting partygoers to the sea fort.

Tickets for X-It will be available from today, although the organisers have yet to settle on an actual date. ‘We’re hoping for the second weekend in July, but it could well be the following one, or even the one after,’ says Prudentulo. ‘But don’t worry: X-It Festival means X-It Festival. And we’ve already printed the T-shirts.’
