The Bestival team are super-excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with madcap creatives, the Hungry Castle & Cool Shit crew once again to bring you another ground breaking, iconic inflatable. Ladies & gentlemen, behold! It’s Happy Kanye!
Spanish art collective Cool Shit is the internet in real life. Making meme culture reality, they’ve been giving celebrities the larger than life treatment for the last four years, notably bringing Lionel’s Richie Head, which stood at a mere three and half metres tall, to Bestival in 2013. Now, with their latest creation, they’ve hit the motherlode. Riffing on one of the internet’s biggest ever memes, Sad Kanye, they’ve repurposed it for reality to give us their biggest and most positive project to date, Happy Kanye!
Standing over seven metres tall on a rainbow plinth at the epicentre of Cuckoo Clump, Happy Kanye will be bold and beautiful, a beacon of positivity encouraging Bestival-goers to step into the rainbow and celebrate our togetherness. And, just like in real life inside Kanye’s head is where the magic happens. A full interactive art experience, once inside it’s down to you to unify with your fellow party people and channel positive vibrations to the world. Let us know how you think you can increase the peace with Happy Kanye!
