For those who are spiritually inclined or just love music or want to bask in a glorious celebration of both, then I recommend getting yourself to the beautiful south of England for the now annual Lizard Festival '99, this week's MusicDish Spotlight.'s funkiest eclipse party!

At mid-morning on 11th august 1999 the shadow of the moon will sweep the earth for the last time this millennium, bringing to Cornwall the most dramatic light show known to mankind, a Total solar eclipse! This spectacular cosmic event has not been seen in the UK for over 70 years and will not be repeated until the year 2090 and over a million visitors will flock to Cornwall to see it happen.

Now, from the very heart of the eclipse zone and one of the best eclipse-viewing locations in the world comes Lizard '99...Earth's funkiest eclipse party.

This epic event will mix some of the freshest and grooviest live music ever with a host of funky activities and a truly relaxing vibe. Set on a beautiful sunny Cornish Peninsula with beach access, Lizard '99 promises the total experience...cutting edge, sensory, funky and fun.

The Lizard Peninsula is situated between Falmouth and Penzance in Cornwall in the Southwest of England. The most southernly spot in all of England, the Lizard is a place of enormous natural beauty, sun, surf and golden beaches.

This year's event will realise a vision that began with the 1997 lizard festival: to play host to the world's ultimate Eclipse party! Years of preparation will culminate this summer in a week of solar eclipse mania showcasing the very finest musicians, performers and artists of our generation. Quite simply, Lizard'99 will be a truly spectacular holiday experience*cutting edge, cosmopolitan, funky and fun.

Everything you need to know about Lizard'99 is on their website located at ... Tickets, line-up, the eclipse, facilities, activities, workshops and much more... The heart and soul of the Lizard experience and the core of their site is the Global Village... where you will find all the vital ingredients of the Lizard '99 experience with sights, sounds and colours from across the globe.

With a massive outdoor cinema arena and global fresh cuisine, huge tented entertainment stages, laid back jazz cafés, leading-edge cybertent...the craic of an Irish bar to the fun of the Big Wheel or bungee jump; from reiki healing to kids basket weaving... Lizard '99 excites the senses and soothes the soul...You'll see striking wigwams nestled against real espresso bars, bustling markets leading to Arabian bazaars, the sci-fi FutureZone merges into Celtic craft workshops and storytelling. Walkabout theatre threads past groovy bars and funky cafes...expect the unexpected at every turn!

Over 15 different music venues will offer some of the freshest and most entertaining programming ever seen in the UK... from headliners in the awesome 15,000 capacity Kayam to intimate local acoustic sets under the stars...from world music and mega dance acts to disco, indie, pop, reggae, jazz and blues...showcasing some of the very finest musicians, performers and artists of our generation.

There will be sixteen tented stages of music and arts offering a superb multi-cultural experience...a true festival line-up including Pop, folk, theatre, blues, comedy, jazz, story telling, DJs, circus...a kaleidoscope of world music, reggae, house, techno, trance...and the essential mix from the club tent.
