Formed in 1988, Beltane Fire Society is a community arts performance charity that hosts the Beltane Fire Festival and Samhuinn Fire Festival in Edinburgh.
Acropalyptic explored and played with Acropolis 7s, the drum beat that starts the festival, the rhythm at the heart of Beltane. Participants ranged from experienced drummers to completely new members, with the personal and collective interpretations including: animation; heavy metal and samba; body percussion; motorcycle helmets and screams into the void. Enjoy.
