The Arctic Monkeys became the first official supporters of RAW (CIC) in 2014 following a hugely successful pilot program commissioned by DF concerts in 2013.

For the pilot project, Lavish designed and produced a giant mechanical sugar skull installation made from recycled plastic bottles (Thirsty GOD) & a planted ‘garden of delights’ in collaboration with the prestigious Glasgow Sculpture Studios to highlight the need to reduce waste at the event - for Scotland’s largest music Festival, T in the Park.

The Arctic Monkeys commissioned Lavish to design a series of impactful scenic installations and iconic environmental art works across the whole site to personalise their sell out Finsbury Park shows. The focus was to complement both the band’s stunning stage set (designed by Paul Normandale), their live performances & their album.

Following the success of this collaboration, the Arctic Monkeys kindly agreed to support RAW by paying for the set to be transported to Suffolk where it could be recycled by Lavish to become a part of the unique Latitude Festival environmental décor, thus entirely eliminating any scenic waste following their shows & also giving the art work further amplification & creative scope.

A great launch to the RAW project, with many thanks to the Arctic Monkeys & also to Melvin Benn of Latitude Festival.
