From the riotous colour and noise of Rio to the more cerebral rhythms of Hay, festivals offer an escape route from the everyday to the urgent and boisterous celebration of harvests, music, books, tomatoes, and bog snorkelling. As we approach a summer of unprecedented festivity, images from the Corbis archive take us into the pop-up worlds of the vibrant, the sacred and the very, very odd.
In association with Corbis, the National Theatre’s Photographic Images Partner.
