Think classic party anthems from the likes of the King of Pop, Sister Sledge, The Trammps, Earth, Wind and Fire and many, many more.
 
Open each day the Jager Residents will kick start things from 1-6pm with ‘The Beat Goes On’, setting the pace for the day and spinning feel good music to get your groove on too.
Liam Young and Stu Plimsoles take control for the evening sessions from 6pm-3am, playing sexy rock n roll and good time music. 
 
Friday will also feature special guests Double Agent 7 for a 2 hour take over from 4-6pm with their killer floor fillers from the 50s & 60s, all exclusively on vinyl 45s. Their set cruises through early Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues, Do Wop, Rockabilly and 60s Soul.
