Random Adventure Presents...

The surreal and beautiful beast that is Mik Artistik's Ego Trip are on their 2019 'World Tour' ...and it promises to be an 'exotic' adventure.

Mik Artistik spouts lyrics, throws straws, and generally amuses himself, over the top of an exquisite layer of rock, soul, and punk created by partner in crime Jonny Flockton on guitar, a drum machine ,and one of a crack squad of bass players.

The cult band, have delighted and unnerved Glastonbury audiences for over ten years gaining more devoted followers each time they play, and are proving to be one of the most interesting, unpredictable and exciting acts on the circuit.

In the absence of Glastonbury last year the band had triumphant shows at Bearded Theory, Beautiful Days, and Latitude Festivals, winning over more and more new fans along the way, not to mention Damian Lewis of Homeland fame making a beeline for Mik at Port Eliot and proceeding to dance with him! It was a crazy summer!

"Stone Cold Classic" ~ Iggy Pop before playing crowd favourite 'Plastic Fox' on his BBC 6Music 'Iggy Confidential' show.

Shaun Keavaney, BBC 6Music Breakfast show presenter described the band 'as mad as a wasp trapped under a pint glass.'

Graham Fellows, aka John Shuttleworth, has recorded one of Mik's songs on his new album "Weird Town".

Martin Parr the world famous photographer describes them as "My favourite band on the planet".

Rick Worthy who hosts The Port Eliot Festival every year in Cornwall said "Port Eliot wouldn't be the same without Mik..."

Praised for being a 'hugely talented singer-songwriter and artist' (The Observer) and for his ability to make up lyrics as he goes along, drawing on observations from the crowd, BBC 6Music colleague Gideon Coe said they were "the best live band I have seen all summer" after witnessing the show first hand at The Port Eliot Festival

Doors are at 8pm

Tickets are £10 advance (£12 on the door)
