Voodoo. Media is manipulation.

Why Voodoo? The word conjures up a lot of different images in people's minds. But for us it means the controlling of others using an external force. And in the 21st Century that external force is the media. Newspapers, TV, magazines, social media, radio, blogs, vlogs and even those little stickers people randomly put on bus shelters. They tell us what clothes to wear, what size we should be, what to do with our hair, what car to drive and even who we should and should not be afraid of.  

In the words of Alice Cooper: "Your world full of creeps Zombies walk the street 9 to 5 barely alive Have a beer go to sleep And start all over again" The worst part is we believe we're doing it all out of choice. But if this were true why are we becoming increasingly unhappy? Our mental health is deteriorating. Depression, eating disorders and suicide rates are on the rise. In fact, latest figures show that female suicide rates in the UK are at their highest for a decade. Voodoo is our little way of saying 'NO!' to this mass media and 'YES!' to friendship, love, fun and support. Top name acts from around the world will be performing to say no to this negativity and fight against the media stereotypes. Join the revolution!
