Beacon Bardney Folk Festival

Bardney 1972, 2004 was a commissioned projec for the first exhibition curated by Beacon in Lincolnshire. Creating site-specific works at historical locations in Lincolnshire, Jessica Voorsanger re-created the Bardney folk festival of 1972 where over 60,000 visitors decended upon the National Trust site of Tupholme Abbey in Bardney, Lincolnshire. She created a stage, with speakers and had the music played at the festival playing to the, now empty, field. The performers at the original festival included James Taylor, The Slade, Roxy Music & Genesis.
