Frome couple, Tess and Rob Peplar have been front lining their venue, Spaceport, since the launch party in 2011. The idea beamed into existence a year earlier, with friends who had their heart set on creating a unique venue.
Tess explains the concept; “Borg technology has been smuggled illegally through the Spaceport gates creating mayhem and madness on the backstreets of DSTRKT 5. Implant dealers are selling the Borg technology and lining Muuti’s pockets. More chaos ensues at the Spaceport as thousands try and flee from the devastated environment and escape the colonies in search of clean air!”
The idea may seem ‘out there’ but the reality is a unique venue full of character, theatre, drama, great music and an experience you won't forget.
Once you have entered Spaceport and been to the reality check in desk it’s important to head to the bar where you will be served out of this world drinks by the offyour- trolley dollies. Dancing all night is optional but following your cosmic journey is inevitable it’s important to make sure you leave via the emotional baggage claim!
Spaceport has been to a plethora of festivals, including Glastonbury, Boomtown, Boardmasters and local favourite, Field Trip, as well as hosting their own private events.
We’ve spent many a cosmic night under the galactic stars in the company of spaceship air stewardesses and creative creatures in attendance, the party season would be incomplete without it.
So look out for Spaceport this year at Glastonbury Festival and Boomtown for an out of this world experience that will leave your senses stimulated and your mind expanded!
