    Mischief Festival 2015 - Cancelled :(

    Dear beloved fam,

    It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that the MischiefFam have to announce the cancellation of this year’s Mischief Festival on 11th September.

    We were all bursting with excitement in sharing the magic that is Mischief with all our loyal Mischief Makers in a beautiful new site, but unforeseen licensing issues have set us adrift. With such little time before the festival there is no way to rejig things whilst still being able to bring you all we promised, we have had to make the heartbreaking decision to cancel the event.

    Have no fear, Mischief ain’t going anywhere! We will fight till the bitter end to give you the party you deserve in your life, but in the mean time we have some options for you...

    1) Option one: hold on to your Mischief ticket until we release our new date for next year. We are looking at making this party earlier in the summer (May) with an extra special rinse out to end the festival season as usual in Sept. Details to follow and full refund will be available once the date has been released if you decide you are unable to attend.
    2) Option 2: To ensure that you guys still get to party out as hard as you deserve to, Illusive Festival have been more than kind to offer Mischief Ticket holders entry into their event in Corby, Northamptonshire. It is a true beauty that the Illusive crew have done this for us and we appreciate this no end. We acknowledge that there is a difference in price and so will either refund the difference or your balance can be put towards Mischief 2016.
    3) Option three; gain a full refund from us as we are truly sorry and gutted that this has happened and this is the absolute least we can do for you.

    Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with how you wish to proceed. (Note we have a lot of people to respond to and are having to deal with each request manually so please bare with us, we will get back to you.)

    Words truly cannot describe how saddened we are. We would like to thank each and every one of you for all your support, loyalty and positive energy that has made Mischief what it is today.

    Big love and endless respect.
    We salute you,
    The MischiefFam

    ♜ TAT PALACE ♜
    As the wind bears you towards the gates of the Tat Palace, you look up to see the ethereal princesses on their balconies, waving to the populace below… But this is not just any ordinary palace, but the gates to the Underworld, ruled by Oya. She is the keeper of the gates and a powerful sorceress, that likes to fill her hall with chaotic, rhythmic beating. As you enter, the enchantment upon your feet starts you dancing, cavorting and spinning with the gorgeous spirits of the Palace of divine beauty.

Colours blaze, as if in the bright Caribbean sunshine.

    She rides the swell of the open sea, her masts rise high into the sky, as her crew climb the rigging and mop the deck. All aboard the IRD Pirate Ship, ready to plow the ocean waves full of strange and mysterious creatures, like the sirens that lure the pirates to their watery grave. Lokun, the father of the ocean, and the deep abysses where the Krakens dwell, watches over the pirates, and promises calm seas for the annual voyage to the shores of the land of Mischief. Bringing their eclectic crew of bands, DJs and performers, it promises to be full of treasure!

    ♥ BORDELLO ♥
    The dancing girls are full of Mischief… Oba rules the Bordello, and is trying to teach her girls to be respectable, but that is one thing they are not! In this haven of tricksters, heroes, braves, wenches and jezebels, all are welcome. In the light of the sun, the ragged splendour is awash with sultry blues and jazz, lindy hopping to swing, before shmoozing into downtempo beats, house and electro-swing. As the night falls, and the lamps are lit, cabaret, burlesque, circus and sideshow take centre stage, and as the night deepens and the energy rises, who knows what those mischievous girls will get up to?

  • My Bad Sister - Vol.1

    My Bad Sister -  Vol.1

    Here at Mischief we always have time for bad ass girls with plenty of attitude and killer style who know how to cause trouble straight up Mischief style. So ahead of the MBS Vol.1 release we decided to catch up with the current queens of girl power My Bad Sister to talk dance,  and dominating the UK Summer scene.

     

    It all started back in central London before the girls were even born, the music and dance rooted firmly in their bloodstream as their pregnant Mum taught dance lessons as the troublesome twins were getting down in her belly. Now (YEARS) on the girls first album MBS Vol. 1 is on its way, bringing with it eighteen tracks, four years in the making. The 15th March sees their debut landing, following closely by their second album along with another collaboration with Prude LeRude which the girls are excited to share with us all.

     

    Featuring on MBS Vol 1. will be the classic track the girls shared ‘Get Out of Ur Endz’, a sweet but sassed up Summer track produced by Josh Knotty and featuring Minx. “The tune is about travelling about and got getting stuck in one place” they told us, talking about the issue of people getting stuck in ruts through their need for comfort and general fear of change. “You need to travel to gain knowledge, and variety is the spice of life!” #livesomewheredifferentforabit

     

    Life for the girls isn’t always peachy working together though, like most siblings the twins have plenty of scraps, “we hate each other” they told us when we caught up with them earlier this week. With the tension building to physical fights, sometimes even live on stage. Despite this the girls bring a strong message of girls sticking together and sticking it to the man.

     

    Whilst dancing is quite literally in the ladies blood, and fashion inspiration from Tank Girl to the Spice girls, making music and writing new songs is what it’s all really about for the girls, and with a jam packed year taking them around the UK festival circuit it looks like we have a lot more to see from the old school, new school duo that is My Bad Sister.
