Organisers have put together an impressive line up for June, featuring a world class array of DJ’s and live acts. Bringing firm favourites on the underground House, rare Soul, Jazz and Disco scenes, as well as uncovering breakthrough artists at the arrowhead of their music genre.
The 60+ lineup, spread over four arenas, will cover all “black music” bases, from cutting edge House in the Pressure Point room, to rare Northern, Modern Soul, Funk and Boogie/Disco cuts in the Shrine Room, where they also champion the massive Edits sound.
The unique Goldmine Room, features open decks and attracts burgeoning talent from all over the world, on a first come first served basis. The slots are usually snapped up within days of becoming available. This year, Carlisle’s very own Jack Knight will make an appearance, while eager DJ’s will fly in from South Africa, Germany and London.
In the Love Lounge Room, hosted by Made In Glasgow Records & Furstenberg/Weihenstephan Lager, DJ’s are invited to play “back to mine” sets and it will feature some of Glasgow’s favourite DJ’s with surprise guests from all over the UK. On Saturday afternoon, the outdoor pool party will include two of Soulful House Music’s finest producers and DJ tag teams.
Topping things off, in the after party on Sunday night, the park will host one final session for the 250+ party goers who simply don’t want to leave after the party finishes.
