Thursday Night Sleep Concert - Steven Stapleton (Nurse With Wound)

Most of our news updates over the last month or so have focused on our festival archive but its time now to look to the future and we are stoked to announce our latest addition to this year's festival - A very special, intimate Sleep Concert by Steven Stapleton of Nurse With Wound, which will take place on the Thursday night of Open Ear '18. 

Steven Stapleton is the founding - and only constant - member of Nurse With Wound, the infamous avant-garde entity regarded as one of the pioneers of Industrial music alongside Throbbing Gristle, Whitehouse, Current 93 and Coil, all of whom Stapleton has collaborated with. For this unique, all night performance Stapleton will traverse his extensive back catalogue, re-imagining and re-contextualising Nurse With Wound's music for the resting and dreaming mind and body of those in attendance. So before you de-camp to the festival site for a long weekend, we'd like to ease you into the festivities with this singular experience. 

This special event will take place in a yet to be revealed location on the Island, and spaces will be available on a first come, first served basis to punters who hold BOTH an Opening Concert ticket and a Weekend Pass. The intimate nature of the event means that the capacity is very limited. The performance will run through the night finishing at 9am followed by breakfast for all attendees, free of charge.
