Find out the full lineup for the festival
World Independent Living Day WILD
The Crips Are Coming!
Saturday, 11 July, 2020
Get ready for The WILD Day In, a one-day festival streamed on our new inclusive online platform which will feature British Sign Language and live subtitles so everyone is welcome. World Independent Living Day CIC have teamed up with dozens of poets, musicians, sportspeople, artists to celebrate Britain’s disability community. The festival will provide an escape and a safespace from the Government’s “lockdown” restrictions that have seen a further erosion of disabled people’s rights following years of austerity measures.
The lineup will feature performances and panel discussions where audience members will be able to ask questions and seamlessly join the debate. We have John McClure from Reverend and the Makers whose well-crafted lyrics have seen them perform at Glastonbury and Wembley stadium, writer Penny Pepper who is more punk than all of the Sex Pistols combined, Alex Walls (aka the Disabled Guy Plays) whose current game of choice is Apex Legend, blind pro skater Dan Mancina who has his own non-profit skating school and comedian Rosie Jones who is a regular at Edinburgh Fringe festival and has written for Harry Hill and 8 out of 10 Cats. These are just a few of the fantastic people who will be performing and joining in with our various discussions on the day. The full line up and timing will be revealed on our website shortly.
Can we do better? Let us know 🙂
