Kate Bush fans to recreate “Wuthering Heights" in Candler Park
After years of re-enacting Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" music video all by yourself in your backyard, this weekend you can do it with friends and strangers.
What's happening: Tomorrow at 10am, dozens of Bush fans, red dresses and all, will perform the enigmatic English singer's mystical and magical music video in Candler Park.
- Known as the Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever, the event will be held in more than 30 cities around the world on July 30 — the birthday of Bush and Emily Brontë, whose novel of the same name inspired the song.
- RSVP on Eventbrite or the Facebook page, which has all the event's details. Or just show up.
State of play: A new generation of listeners has embraced Bush after another hit, "Running Up That Hill," was featured in the new season of "Stranger Things."
- The song rose to No. 1 on iTunes after its appearance on the Georgia-filmed show and saw a nearly 17,000% increase in streaming, according to music data firm Luminate.
Of note: No red dress? Just wear something red, says Kim Manning, one of the event's organizers.
Why it matters: "It's a moment of pure, silly joy — playfulness, community and connection over music, and it’s a celebration of femininity. It has the vibe of a dance you'd make up in your bedroom when you’re a teenager," she says.
- "And after these last few pandemic years, which have been so hard for everyone, I could really use a moment like that!"
Editor’s note: This headline has been corrected to say fans will recreate “Wuthering Heights,” not “Running Up That Hill.”
