Tempting Failure is a festival of international performance art & noise art, showcasing under-represented or extreme artwork that may interrogate risk & transgressive practice.

Conceived in 2011, initially as part of his PhD at University of Bristol to examine specific phenomenological concerns around body art, Tempting Failure was founded by Thomas John Bacon. TF then subsequently expanded to become an annual event and arts organisation.

Tempting Failure is invested in the support of Performance Art & Noise Art, as well as the professional development of artists at all stages of their careers and the education of all.
