Image description: Four dancers are making the shape of steps with their bodies. One lying flat on the floor, one raised slightly higher and two on hands and knees to form the different levels. They are wearing white trainers and suits. There is one performer on top of them as if he is moving down the steps. The image is very dark with a blue light on the performers.
One helluva weekend

Freestyle Funk Forum
Lilian Baylis Studio
Saturday and Sunday at 4.30pm
Running time: 30 minutes
Freestyle Funk Forum is an hour of improvised theatre in hip hop’s answer to ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’
No two shows are ever the same in this spontaneous collection of skits brought to life through the elements of hip hop from dance and beatboxing to turntablism and rap.
Freestyle Funk Forum will take place on Saturday and Sunday and is scheduled around the main stage performances so they do not clash.
Add a Freestyle Funk Forum ticket to the same order as your Festival ticket and the Freestyle Funk Forum ticket will become free of charge at the checkout. Non-ticket holders can purchase tickets for Freestyle Funk Forum for £5.
