Welcome to Night Vale, the most downloaded fiction podcast in the world, announced the title and plot of its all new live tour, The Attic. Starting in the northeast United States, the live show will bring a brand-new story you won’t be able to hear on the podcast to more than 40 cities in the United States.
Starring Cecil Baldwin, Symphony Sanders, and surprise guests playing fan favorite characters, the Welcome to Night Vale live show will feature a never-before-heard script, a creepy slide presentation featuring original art by Jessica Hayworth, a special musical guest as “The Weather” and live music by Disparition. The Attic explores themes of nostalgia, memory and perfection. Cecil discovers slides from an old family road trip, which at first seem fun and joyful but begin to change into something strange and dangerous. Both fans of the show and newcomers will be able to enjoy this stand-alone performance.
One of the most downloaded fiction podcasts in the world, Welcome to Night Vale releases twice a month in the style of community updates for the small desert town of Night Vale, featuring local weather, news, announcements from the Sheriff’s Secret Police, mysterious lights in the night sky, dark hooded figures with unknowable powers, and cultural events.
Named one of the “10 essential fiction podcasts that shaped the genre” by Vulture, Welcome to Night Vale was created by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor in 2012. Eleven years and more than 200 episodes later, the success of Welcome to Night Vale has crossed all platforms. A pioneer of live podcast touring, their previous live tours have performed more than 450 shows in 18 countries and 38 U.S. states.
