Red Bull TV takes viewers on a unique journey of ancient cultural traditions and festivals in the modern world
A new six-part documentary series explores extraordinary communities and their deeply-rooted cultural traditions New and exclusive to Red Bull TV, Archaic Festivals – a six part documentary series – takes viewers behind the scenes at some of the world’s oldest and most intriguing festivals. From the remote islands of the Pacific Ocean to the historic market town of Ashbourne in Derbyshire, UK – taking in Spain, Argentina, Japan and the Philippines along the way – all life is presented here in this immersive look at ancient traditions from every corner of the globe.
All deeply rooted in their local culture – and with dangerous competition at their core – each festival within the series presents participants with an opportunity to demonstrate their courage and honour as they venture to take their place in the history books. And with access to locations and rituals never before captured on camera, Red Bull TV takes viewers up close and personal – on the front line of the festival.
Whether being granted intimate access to the spiritual chants of Onbashira in Japan or the poignant tranquillity of the Church of Mercy during The Fiesta de Cascamorras in Spain, every single detail of these stunning festivals is captured for all to see. While each 50-minute episode may tell a deeply unique story, all share four common themes: passion, desire, belief and glory. Archaic Festivals is available to stream On Demand on Red Bull TV. Red Bull TV is distributed digitally across mobile phones, tablets, consoles, OTT devices and Smart TVs.
