Following the launch of Bido Lito! back in the heady days of 2010, we teamed up with a collective of our new-found friends and musical allies to present INSIDE PAGES Festival. The concept for the festival was simple: create a full-blown celebration of the artists and music community our magazine was established to champion. To mark the 100th issue of Bido Lito! they'll will be hosting an event in the same spirit and under the same name.
This time at Constellations on 22nd June, Inside Pages will be a festival which brings the pages of Bido Lito! to life and closes bido100! with a volatile mix of artists of both local and international significance. Recent cover artists XAMVOLO, YANK SCALLY and EYESORE & THE JINX will all perform live, alongside many more familiar and unfamiliar names. MC NELSON will also present the first ever performance of a new piece of work he has been developing as part of his residency with Metal.
Today, our city’s creative community faces a unique set of challenges and as a magazine we’ve never shied away from this fact. To mark the publication of our 100th issue we will be taking the opportunity to look forwards rather than backwards, asking the following question: what will be the key issues and challenges, opportunities and changes we’ll be grappling with in 2028? Through a series of projects, bido100! will explore our fast-paced and unpredictable tech-laced future and look to learn what we can do differently today to help shape a better, creative tomorrow.
