2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July

Volo: dreams of flight

Climb aboard a playground swing; don a VR headset; and take flight in one of four award-winning Leonardo da Vinci virtual flying machines!

Flap and soar over cliffs as an Ornithopter bird-person; ascend to join a psychedelic aerial ballet in your Helical Screw; shoot into satellite orbit from a renaissance cannon, to (hopefully) float safely back to ground in a Parachute; or bank and weave in a Glider performing across an extra-terrestrial landscape.

Studio Go Go creates interactive Virtual Reality ride adventures and avant-garde 360-degree video artworks that will propel your experience of a mechanical ride into whole new dimensions – with VR Swings and VR Fairground rides currently on tour and being licensed to operators worldwide. Studio Go Go is directed by UK Brendan Walker – the world’s only Thrill Engineer – who has developed extensive skill and expertise working across the cultural and entertainment industries (computer games, theme park rides and TV gameshows), and with many global experiential brands that include Nissan, Royal Caribbean and Disneyland.

The Studio Go Go team are world-class creatives and cutting-edge technologists, with an eco-friendly agenda to transport less and reuse more. They develop digital content that can be distributed globally, to be played on mobile VR headsets and existing rides sourced locally.
