Special guests on the day will be Kingpin Producer & DJ Macky Gee and the group that are currently taking the world by storm.. The huge Bad Boy Chiller Crew will be making an appearance which will undoubtedly have the crowds going crazy on the day, along with in incredible TQD.

Disco fans will no doubt be spending their day at the Beat Boutique & Soul Heaven stage in the marquee. Unveiled on the monster disco lineup so far is the amazing Kenny Dope, House & Disco legend Dave Lee ZR, Kings of Tomorrow featuring Julie McKnight - well known for their HUGE hit ‘Finally’, Glitterbox royalty Melvo Baptiste, disco Queen Natasha Kitty Kat and they’ll also be joined by Peverell, David Dunn, Lady V and Callum Smith.

Special guest DJ Ben Hemsley has also been thrown into the mix, fresh from selling out his Newcastle show in record time - this local legend will no doubt be bringing some serious vibes to this stage. Warm ups will be looked after by Jordan and Curtis Graham.

It’s shaping up to be an unforgettable weekend that dance music fans & festival-lovers simply do not want to miss out on.
