RA RA RASPUTIN ROCKS THE GLASTONBURY SCENE

Exiled Prussian showman Igor Rasputin carted his Caravan of Lost Souls to England's famous Glastonbury Festival for four frantic non-stop days and nights of hedonism under the stars. The company of kooks and crackpots seemed to perfectly encapsulate the spirit of what is the world's largest green field festival with more than 170,000 people flocking to the giant site in the West Country for the 2015 event. The ever popular Caravan of Lost Souls set up to perform in the fading light at sunset and made their mark in true Area 51 style.

Exiled Prussian showman Igor Rasputin carted his Caravan of Lost Souls to England’s famous Glastonbury Festival for four frantic non-stop days and nights of hedonism under the stars.

The company of kooks and crackpots seemed to perfectly encapsulate the spirit of what is the world’s largest green field festival with more than 170,000 people flocking to the giant site in the West Country for the 2015 event.

The ever popular Caravan of Lost Souls set up to perform in the fading light at sunset and made their mark in true Area 51 style.

Berlin burlesque belle Evelyn Frantti, together with fetish scenster Amy Day, added a dark edge to proceedings to Area 51’s club Shangrilatti by night but their daytime performances with the Caravan of Lost Souls were redesigned to be more family friendly.

Amy Guerrier’s mesmerising hoop performance proved to be extra popular with the thousands watching and Adam Ford turned in a particularly stomach-churning but unmissable fakir show. With the surreal music making of Bill Brookman plus dazzling circus tricks from Matt Lemon and Klas Tacer together with fire acts and much more, both the daytime and evening shows were jam packed with vibrant and frenetic shows.

After night fell, the 51 crew starred at Shangrilatti, a club venue with an extraordinary and bizarre cabaret vibe that became instantly legendary in the historic festival’s lore.

Stunning left-field performances from the Area 51 team became the talk of Glastonbury and left an indelible mark on the event.
