Avante garde “Victoriandustrial” artist Emilie Autumn is set to make five appearances on the upcoming Vans Warped Tour where she will be presenting her “Asylum Experience”, an innovative, immersive environment that will thrust concertgoers into a wild world of burlesque performances, circus attractions, theater acts, and, of course, live musical shows. This fantastical alternate reality will be known as “The Asylum For Wayward Victorian Girls.” Based upon the two video teasers, which you can watch below, the event should be something truly incredible and memorable for any attendee.
Direct from the official press release:
“Upon entering the all-day-long Asylum Experience, Warped Tour guests will be thrust into a visually stunning world policed by Victorian doctors and lunatic asylum guards, where striped-stockinged inmates attempt escape (will you help them or join them?), talking rats lead you on a hunt for hidden documents that may just secure your freedom, and a mad tea party proves to be more mad than Alice could ever have imagined (ours features an authentic Victorian electro-shock machine). With multiple tents and interactive elements to choose from and explore, numerous characters to follow, and endless secrets to uncover, every visitor will have a completely unique experience impossible to recreate. Audience participation is taken to a new level as the lines between performer and observer are completely blurred.
“In the middle of the Asylum Experience festival area lies “The Cell”, the main stage where Emilie and her glittering cast of lunatics will present her musical extravaganza stage show twice daily before being kidnapped and put back in their cages.”
