In the Court of… Duke Special
Duke Special takes over the MAC for one whole week, including live shows by The Futureheads, Three Bonzos & A Piano, The Blockheads, a wine tasting evening, Joe Black & Nanu Nanu, Cathy Davey, DJ78 and Johanna Billing.
This year, artist and musician Peter Wilson (better known as Duke Special) is our first invited curator to take part in this very special event. The brief was simple – we asked Duke Special to come up with a wish list of artists that he would like to see, or felt some personal connection with and invite them to the MAC.
We didn’t put any other conditions in place and instead took a step into the unknown and let someone else take over. As you will see from the events he has curated, the result is a delight – an eclectic, ambitious festival of intrigue and fun.
