Dancing in the street
Shaking your thing through busy city streets while singing along to your favourite disco classics might be more the stuff of nightmares than your dream activity, but bear with us – it could be just the thing your summer needs.
Guru Dudu is the hip-hopping alter-ego of Melbourne-based performer
David Naylor, rst appearing on the scene back in 2008 with his disco yoga class at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He’s now taking to the streets with his infamous Silent Disco Tours, leading fellow groovers around city sights with a killer soundtrack.
Attendees are given a pair of headphones so that they can all hear the commentary from Guru Dudu, as well as his dance-mix of uplifting faves from the 70s, 80s and 90s. While joining in with the chorus isn’t mandatory, you’ll soon nd yourself singing along and getting groovy – as the Guru himself says, his tours are “guaranteed to open the laughter meridians”. Frankly,
we can’t think of a better way to explore a new city. Guru Dudu is bringing his boogy shoes to The Edinburgh Fringe Festival from 3rd-27th August. For more information and to nd

SOUNDS GOOD There’s always a summer anthem you can’t stop humming – no matter how hard you try! Studies have found that trying to get songs like this out of your head is futile – so embrace it!
