Smoke, flames, oil drums and mayhem will be taking to Hull’s streets – and everyone is invited.
French street artist group Générik Vapeur will be performing its incredible show Bivouac, as part of Freedom Festival 2019 and it promises to be an incredible spectacle.
The group has been lighting up the cities of Europe for the past 30 years and now it’s Hull’s time to be transported into a punk-infused daydream.
A spokesman for the show said: “Suddenly, blue men and women burst onto the streets with a wave of smoke and sound, transporting the city into a punk-infused daydream.

“French street arts titans Générik Vapeur, have been lighting up cities across Europe for 30 years with smoke, flame, oil drums and mayhem as an enormous troupe of blue men and women lay siege to the city.
“Joined by a cast of local people, they vanish as quickly as they arrived, in the midst of Rock’n’Shock music.
“This is a processional show, which contains loud music and extensive use of pyrotechnics.”
The show will be taking place on Friday, August 30, from 8.30pm in the city centre.
This is just one of hundreds of events taking place across Freedom Festival, and is free and unticketed.
Hull’s International Carnival will also be providing a free parade on Sunday, September 1, with a taste of Rio de Janeiro being brought to the city centre.
