In 2013, 300 people danced to Kate Bush's 'Wuthering Heights' in a field — and in 2022, the idea is back and bigger than ever. Yes, The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever is happening in Sydney again from 12pm on Saturday, July 30. Yes, everyone should be dressed as Kate Bush, complete with a red dress, red stockings and black belt (men, that means you as well).

On the day, a clowder (that's the collective noun for Kate Bushes, just FYI) will descend upon St Peters and copy Bush's swaying, kicky dance in unison just for the pure joy of it. Support for this weird and wonderful outing has been widespread, and Kate Bush fans from around the world have been inspired to create events in their home cities. So get your gear together (dressmakers are usually flooded with orders for the day) and ready yourself to roll and fall in green, out on the wily, windy moors of Sydney Park.

If you need an incentive — other than the event itself, of course — it's now 44 years since the song was first released. Also, this year's celebration of all things Kate Bush is taking place on the British musician's birthday. And, if you've watched the first seven episodes of Stranger Things' fourth season, you're probably now a Kate Bush obsessive if you weren't already before.

Running up that hill beforehand (whichever hill you like) isn't compulsory, but it feels fitting. And yes, when it comes to Kate Bush worship, she sang it best herself : don't give up.
