Get on board for the mother of all Mothership Connections. This is your chance to go on a wild ride inside the mind and music of P-Funk genius George Clinton. You’ll see Parliament-Funkadelic in action, meet George Clinton and the band, and get the inside track on the influences and inspirations behind Parliament-Funkadelic’s most iconic songs in this exclusive weekend event at Metropolis Studios.
The event kicks off with the best possible start to any weekend: a riotous show led by Clinton himself, featuring members of classic Parliament-Funkadelic. The evening offers a unique opportunity to watch the band record a full set of their greatest material for a forthcoming DVD and TV special, in front of an intimate audience.
Saturday night is the ultimate treat for funk-loving audiophiles, as the band record a super-limited edition album direct to vinyl in Metropolis, one of the only studios on the planet equipped for recording live to vinyl – the highest possible quality form of recording there is. You’ll sit in on rehearsals and witness how the magic is made. You’ll see how the Metropolis engineers and Producers capture lightning on lacquer, and get an up-close look at George and the band’s musical brilliance.
Finally, on Sunday, George Clinton provides mind food for budding producers, musicians and curious funk fans alike, as he deconstructs the original multitracks of some of P-Funk’s greatest works to reveal the studio secrets of how one of the tightest, wildest and most experimental bands in the universe put together their legendary jams.
Every guest will be treated like a VIP, and different ticketing tiers provide all kinds of amazing extras, including private signing sessions with George Clinton, private box seating with waiter service, a tour of the legendary Metropolis studios, and even the opportunity to get your name in the credits for the new live album and DVD. Individual tickets are available for each event – or, you can also experience this monumental weekend in funk history in full. Silver, gold and full weekend ticket packages are available now.
