News: People complain after double act strip naked during SO Festival performance

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

SO Festival bosses have defended the inclusion of a double act who stripped down nude in front of onlooking families.

Super Super performed on Sunday, September 1 in Tower Gardens in Skegness as part of the even, which saw thousands of people descend on the coast.

The act involves two men who strip down into speedos to comedically perform a synchronised swimming session in a tiny paddling pool. During the performance, they swap speedos while covering their private parts – which at no point are fully exposed.

Skegness Town Councillor Malcolm Gabbitas has since complained that ‘pubic hairs’ were on show at the family event.

 

Magna Vitae received two complaints about the raunchy act after the performance was over.

A spokesperson for the festival said: “SO Festival 2019 brought an eclectic mix of acts and artists from across Europe and the UK, all of whom served to offer entertaining and diverse performances.

“While the act by talented French artists Super Super may have surprised some, we constantly monitored the reaction of the hundreds of people who watched, and the vast majority appreciated the performance in the innocent spirit of which it was intended.

“There were rounds of applause at the conclusion of all the Super Super shows, with many families chatting to the artists afterwards.

“Of course, if some did take offence then we wish to apologise, and we have had discussions with representatives of Skegness Town Council to ensure they are reassured about how the feedback will be used to shape SO Festival in the future.

“We thank all who attended and gave their input into SO 2019 – it is only by receiving the reactions of people, good or bad, that we can determine what we deliver in future years.

“We would welcome and encourage feedback via our online survey which can be completed at  https://t.co/B6QYqcPkaM
