The Incredible Hug, the Caped Crusader, Hydro Cop, Lady Aidy and Miss Communication, will be roving the Isle of Wight Festival this weekend from Friday 13th until Sunday 15th June 2014 to highlight the life-saving work of the Red Cross both here in the UK and abroad.
“Not every super hero needs a cape”, says British Red Cross as they launch their Festival Heroes campaign with a squad of super heroes who will also return to the Isle of Wight at Bestival in September.
The Incredible Hug, with his out-stretched arms, will demonstrate the emotional support the Red Cross provides in times of crisis while the Caped Crusader's cape represents the shelter they provide after an earthquake or Tsunami. Complete with water tank, Hydro Cop will be highlighting the importance of providing adequate sanitation in a disaster-struck country while Lady Aidy, with her frisbees, will demonstrate the Red Cross’ quick response to crisis. And Miss Communication, with her interactive telephone shoulder-pads, will be promoting the Red Cross family tracing service which reunites families separated by conflict.
Festival goers are encouraged to come and interact with the team of super-heroes and enjoy acoustic sets in the British Red Cross Sound Sanctuary tent with a line-up including Aimee, Amberland, Edith Violet, Frankie Forman, George Cosby, Jakarta Club, JJ Rosa, Lazytalk, Loic, Lucy Kitt, Nathan Ball, Osca, Prash Gor, and The Intermission Project
Free cups of tea will be available for festival goers recovering from the night before and limited edition festival survival kits – including emergency loo rolls and earplugs – will also be on offer.
Biffy Clyro will headline the festival on the Friday night, the Red Hot Chili Peppers headline Saturday, and Kings Of Leon close the weekend on Sunday.
