The newfound festival launched last year within the stunning grounds of Sherbourne Park. Located just south of Birmingham in Warwick, the two-day event is partnering up with Resident Advisor, Houseum & Disco Disco to bring a synergetic blend of house, disco and techno to the midlands.
Born from a series of events hosted by the Access The Music collective, the crew have evolved into a full fledged festival. Previous events in the midlands have invited the likes of Willow and Shanti Celeste for one-off club nights.
Music will start from 1pm through to 11pm on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th June. Bringing artists from a variety of genres and their respective scenes, this open-air showcase brings together the essence of electronic music culture for a weekend of uplifting Summer dancing.
Friday welcomes an exciting back-to-back from Octo Octa and Saoirse. Both artists are innovative in their own right, shifting through a plethora of genres, be it incredibly positive house or slinky and slimy minimal, the pair’s taste spread decades of club culture and this set is sure to be one to remember. Sets also feature from scene veterans Jeremy Underground and Gerd Janson, as well as the legendary Crazy P Soundsystem.
Saturday turns up the heat with a unique curation of selectors. DJOKO and Harrison BDP will bring the minimal flavours in another intriguing back-to-back. Both artists are devoted to their craft with a huge catalogue of silky productions, as well as frequent DJ gigs showcasing their intricate and soulful tastes.
The prolific Frenchman Sweely will also feature with his charming live set. His productions have become a staple across the house and minimal scenes, flirting between genres and packing grooves with sleaze, it’s hard to not enjoy his infectious and playful energy. Saturday will also host sets from the likes of DJ Boring, Dan Shake and Mathame bringing the hopeful Summer energy.
Travel will run all day across both days from Leamington Spa and Warwick University Campus, each just 15 minutes from the site. The festival also details award-winning street food and drinks, contemporary art and leisure activities around the site.
