The widely acclaimed 50-piece orchestra, Sinfonia Gaia, will also be making an exclusive festival appearance.
For the first time in almost a decade, the organisers are bringing Ethno World back to the UK to host one of their globally-renowned music camps, bringing young artists from around the world together for a week of pre-festival collaboration culminating in a one-off performance on the opening night.
For 2015 Tandem Festival is also partnering with the British Red Cross to host a stage for Refugee Week, to celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK and promoting understanding of why people ￼￼seek sanctuary. The theme of Refugee Week this year is “Celebration!” and the stage will feature a ￼diverse programme of multicultural arts and entertainment to raise awareness.
