We were once more invited back to work at the mighty pop up city Boomtown!
With a seven man strong team, we were to be once more jamming out and providing workshops up in the Kidz area of Town!
A lovely tranquil part of the festival where kids and adults alike are invited to take part in games, workshops and other splendour!
We created a big scaffolding rig with lots of other fun obstacles, and after a serious jam on it invited all of the kids and parents to join in!
The official video for 2014 is above, and check some of our images below!
We were invited to host a jam and workshops at the Salvation Army in Cardiff.
Teaming up with our friend Andrew from A.I.M , we brought the scaffolding set up down and some coaching blocks. With some great music being blasted, and the sun on our side, we jammed out on the equipment and then taught all those that wanted to get involved some basics.
With a theme of the human potential , it went down pretty damn well and we are glad to have got this chance to teach others some of their physical capabilities.
Hope to do this again!
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!
“JUST IMAGINE IF YOU PUT ALL THE AMAZING MUSIC CARDIFF HAS TO OFFER ON ONE STREET OVER ONE WEEKEND. THERE WOULD BE ROCK, REGGAE, HOUSE, FOLK, BLUES, FUNK, HIP HOP, JAZZ, DISCO, SWING, METAL AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN…
PROMOTERS, LABELS AND BANDS WOULD ALL WORK TOGETHER IN SOME UTOPIAN DISPLAY OF SOLIDARITY TO SHOW THE REST OF THE COUNTRY THAT CARDIFF IS ABSOLUTELY BUZZING.
WELL SOD DREAMING, WE DID IT! AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND 2013 SAW OVER 150 BANDS PLAY ACROSS 8 VENUES ON WOMANBY STREET – THE HEART OF CARDIFF’S BLOSSOMING LIVE MUSIC QUARTER!”
What an amazing idea for bringing together all the music and arts in Cardiff. HUB fest was absolutely amazing, and Fluidity were invited to perform doing some street acrobatics and parkour! (Dressed as ninjas I might add!)
Check the video here!
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.
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!
Back in April, Tom, Frazer and Alex made the trip to London to be a part of a relaunch campaign that Desperardos were working on.
This was a huge event/party where Desperardos were showing their workforce and clients their plans of re-branding and general company plans.
Fluidity were invited to basically cause havoc on a load of shipping containers in a beer garden, whilst amazing food was being prepared, with live DJ’s and graffiti sessions.
Absolute scorcher of a day , here are some of the photos!
