Fluidity finally got a huge chance to be a part of the maddest, most happening festival in the UK, and most likely the world.
Boomtown is one of the most infamous arts and music festivals.. There really is no describing it, so check out this video of the fest below.
We were based up in Kidztown at the festival, which is a chill area full of fun activities, shows and delights for the kids and their parents. A nice break away from the rest of the festival, we built a huge scaffolding rig with other structures and jammed on it each day. After the jams we were letting the kids and even the adults give it a good go with some hour long workshops!
On top of that, we were once more involved with mighty Bassline Circus, doing a short performance on stage each night in the largest dance tent of the fest. With a stage built like a party slum, full projection art and a couple of thousand people watching, this is easily one of our favourite performances we have ever done!
Will hopefully have footage and all that online sometime soon!
Back in March Fluidity Freerun were invited to an epic SS13 Collection Launch @ No 5 Cavendish Sq!
We were then commissioned to create a freerunning video for Onepiece , and thought it would be fitting to film us at the party and getting there en-route!
In usual slacker fashion we were pretty late and there wasn’t time for a bus…. Here is what ensued!
Big thanks to Sam Irving of Lighttrap Films for helping shoot this!

Linked with the work we did with Groundworks and Playworks, Fluidity were invited to come up to a youth session in Briton Ferry to deliver a freerunning taster.
Searing hot heat and a bit of equipment in a field, as well as a play in a park and it was a lovely successful day!
In May, we prepared a taster session for a group of youths up in Crynant RCT. This was a collaboration through Groundworks Neath/Port Talbot and Playworks.
Frazer, Tom and Andrew delivered 2 one hour and a half sessions for a large amount of kids. This later led onto us doing 2 more sessions during August.
We all had a great time working up there, and hopefully a bespoke parkour play park is going to be designed so that the kids of that area can carry on their new found interest in Parkour.
We were privileged to be involved with the most epic Fieldview Festival once more for some freerunning shenanigans!
After working there last year, we couldn’t wait to be back at our favourite small festival. With a great ethos on art, crafts and performance workshops, Fieldview really is a gem of a festival with a vibe that is hard to match!
We jammed it out for an hour each day followed by an hours worth of workshops!
Fluidity Freerun were highly privelidged to go to the mighty Fusion Festival… also known as the communist summer camp. Its a 70,000 strong festival taking place on private land , with a punk/communist ethos of looking after each other and the environment, this is without a doubt the most beautiful place we have ever been.
We were guests with the Bristol based Bassline Circus, who we have spent the summer working with at Festivals and events. Performing freerunning shows on stage in the huge big top, and then also walk about acts, amongst an array of amazing music, artists and installations.
Here is a video that we made (TwoFootTallProductions) of the time we spent at the festival!
We have the insane opportunities this year of working with Bassline Circus at both Boomtown Festival and Fusion Festival (Germany).
Don’t want to give too much away, but we are going to be involved in a huge act that will have insane 3D projections, fire artists, DJ’s trapeze acts and much much more. We will be freerunning around the 360 degrees of the audience , with structures built up for all of the performers giving a hugely dynamic and utterly immersing performance.
Alex Bull , a fellow Welsh practitioner has created this stunning piece, featuring members of Fluidity and friends.
Part of his university work, the project aims to show the links between different creative movements.
Check the video and discription, and be sure to look at his other stuff!
Seriously talented guy and this videos well worth the watch!
We had the pleasure of being involved with the legendary party dub band “Gentlemans Dub Club”. Several members of Fluidity are huge fans of these guys , so we were totally stoked to be involved with some shoots that took place in London.
The production titled “RIOT” , is sure to be a cracker…. Definitely the best music video production we have been involved with, so don’t want to give anything away.

During April , BeardedKitten invited us to come work at a Desperardos relaunch party. The event itself was for the rebrand of the company , with huge seminars and talks about future plans, plenty of partying and spectacles too. On a scorching London day, we were to play about on a load of shipping containers as an amazing BBQ went on with live graffiti, DJ’s , breakdancing , BMXing and more!
A great day out for Alex , Tom and Frazer .. Kudos!
