THE CENTRE OF THE FESTIVAL
The Main Stage is where it’s at! Live music is at the very heart of any festival and our Main Stage will be filled with incredible acts, from Pop to Rock, Folk to Soul, we’ll have a lineup of artists and bands that will make for blissful Summer days and epic summer nights.
LISTEN TO THE MUSIC
Not a Main Stage kinda person? Do you prefer to watch acts in a more intimate setting? Then Mr Peebles Music House is for you. We’ve got a lineup of the sort of top quality music acts you’ve come to expect from Meraki in a beautiful vintage setting. Bands, duos and solo artists bringing everything from gentle ballads to danceable grooves throughout each day.
DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY
Aurora Avenue was such a hit this year, we’re bringing back the DJs, bigger and better! In 2018, we’ll have a lineup for killer DJs dropping dance floor anthems, classic beats and fresh new mixes – pack your dancing shoes, you’re gonna need em!
EVERYBODY DANCE NOW
Fancy shutting off and dancing to your own beat? Jump into our LED silent disco space and dance the night away. With everyone dancing to a different beat, the best part is when you remove your headphones and hear everyone singing out loud!
We’ve got the UK’s first fully mobile, interactive trailer cave for Meraki 2018! The overall design and layout of the cave incorporates all of the exciting features of and elements of bespoke caving adventure systems, but condensed into 30 linear meters. Artificial caving systems provide a fun and exciting replication of real caving, but in a safe and controlled environment.
Artiﬁcial caving systems aim to educate, inspire and excite a new generation of subterranean explorers as, well as make caving more available to those who otherwise would not get a chance to participate. We provide each caver with a helmet and head torch, have a quick brief, and then send them off to discover!
