TailPlay Music Festival is a music and art event produced by Inchant, a music promotion studio run by a group of millennial mavericks. Making its debut in 2017, TailPaly also works as the first anniversary party of Inchant.
– “Tail”, our “loss” during human evolution, according to Inchant, is a symbol of animality, an attitude representing our primitive yearning to live and express oneself unrestrainedly.
– TailPlay is a full day adventure and delight with live music performances, photo booth, artist flea market and quirky but fun games.
– TailPlay creates a space for local communities to celebrate their quirkiness while embracing different cultures, races, genders and nationalities in a hope to engage more bored music lovers in unexpected cross-cultural conversations with bands and artists. It kills your boredom, wakes up the sleeping animal instincts and calls on every primal scream inside your body.
During human evolution, we lost our tails to become higher animals. When contemporary society becomes complicated with more pressure, modern life seems too much with us. In the past, tails were used to aid our balance but now we redefine it as a positive mediator of humanity and animality and a vent for your desire to break free from whatever engulfs our sheer happiness and self-identities. We encourage you to design your own tails, bring them here and share your tales with kindred spirits. We respect and celebrate simplicity, wildness, eccentricities and an open mind to create and share. There are a million ways of getting bored but definitely no better way other than TailPlay for you to do something about it. Going backwards is no shame and we can even go a little further 🙂
