Our good friends at Rhythm Section pair up with the first-ever Turner Prize winning architecture studio Assemble to mastermind the sound and design of Kingdom’s Hilltop selectors stage. Sat above the festival valley, with a view of the rolling hills of the Leicestershire countryside – where you’ll want to find yourself when the mid-summer sun is setting.
Assemble are designers with an edge. Not motivated just by creating art, the collective strives to make a mark and a difference. Assemble investigate spaces of celebration, performance and gathering, championing creative, low-tech solutions that put people and spatial experience first. The 16-person strong, multi-disciplinary studio perfectly encapsulates Kingdom’s cross-pollination and collaborative ethos.
They will pair with Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section, who since its inception in 2009, has grown from a small community-driven party into a globally respected label of taste and style, representing sounds from all corners of the globe. The Rhythm Section name has become synonymous with good times, party vibes and big smiles. With a unique take on what makes a great party, we’re excited to see what they bring to the stage’s design process.
Together, their aim will be to create a structure that lends itself to an immersive spatial and sound experience, designed to showcase some of the very best selectors.
