If my Instagram feed is anything to go by, Massaoke madness has hit hard in 2019. It’s approximately 11:30pm on a Saturday night when, armed with cans of cider and Gordan’s gin and tonic, the chattering crowd bustle into the designated dancing tent in the Garden of Unearthly Delights. The show is sold out and we hear several groups of wannabe-punters trying to talk their way into “the best party of the fringe”.
The show, hailing from the UK and accurately self-described as “the ultimate mixtape”, is an ode to the hairbrush anthems. The very talented band perform everything from guilty pleasures to rock classics to magnificent mash-ups whilst the audience sing (scream) along. For the optimal karaoke experience, the lyrics are projected onto a screen behind the band.
The show is nearly three hours in length but it’s over all too quickly. The band (and crowd) perform with absolute gusto and the energy in the tent is electric. By the final few songs, there is not a single person who isn’t wildly waving their hands in the air and bouncing up and down.
Massaoke is a show to take your best mates to. Grab some drinks, chuck on your converse, and prepare for a big one. By the time you stumble out of the tent, you’ll be sweaty, exhausted, and unable to keep the grin off of your face.
Star rating: 5/5
