Tor Ist Das! Festival is a special one off music event that takes part in Tormorden, West Yorkshire inviting artists experimenting in psychedelic, improv., sound art, folk and even metal to play. We aim to bring artists to the town who would likely never play outside of large UK cities (and in the case of our headliner, never play anywhere ever before) and mix them with local artists on the lineup.
‘Tor Bookings’ put on shows throughout the year using a community run church and the festival celebrates the anniversary of the first event. ‘Was Ist Das?’ is a Hebden Bridge organisation that combines journalism, broadcasting, a record label and promoting. The festival is their farewell before relocating to Arizona to bring experimental music to the desert.
