Finish the summer on a high and get your arse over to Finsbury Park for a day of dance and debauchery.
Thanks to the people behind FOUND Festival, Finsbury Park will be transformed into a massive seven arena, 11 hour festival this Saturday. Seeking out the great and the good in classic, new and evolving electronic music talent, CEREMONY
Just a few reasons why you shouldn’t miss this one:
Headlining the 51st State and FACT stage, INNER CITY are considered to be one of the most influential dance acts of all time. One of dance music’s most influential singles: GOOD LIFE will be an unmissable performance.
He’s influenced Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx and Armand Van Helden and now he’s in London for Ceremony. “IM A HOUSE GANGSTA” is a t-shirt he dons regularly, and it pretty much sums up his music.
“I never got a break in New York, but England happened right away, so I catered to them.” Known as ‘Todd the God’, he’s back in the Capital and we kind of hope his George Michael remix will get some air time.
Just over five years ago, Danny and Alessandro became disillusioned with their current project and laid it to rest. A wave of success has followed with tracks including ‘Brick House’, ‘Ninety Five’ and – most significantly – ‘Need In Me’.
LIL LOUIS: the Pioneer, Icon, Mogul, and Renaissance man
The Founding Father of House Music- need we say more? In 1974, while working at a party organized by his mother to unite Chicago gangs, Louis was asked to play after the DJ fell ill. The adulation from the crowd birthed the 12-year-old’s, career as a DJ, and by many accounts, the birth of House music.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST : EGG VIP STAGE
For an extra £5 (plus booking fee) you can nab yourself a VIP ticket. Egg London will be hosting the VIP Arena with an array of talent both old and new taking control. London favourites Krankbrother will bring their ever popular brand of house and techno along with headliner Chez Damier and Viva Warriors newbie Denney. The VIP arena will also be transformed into a jungle for the day with an extra stage being served by additional bars (everyone hates a queue) and VIP facilities (AKA posh loos). Well worth the extra £5 for the ultimate festival experience.
Ticket: £45 (+BF)
VIP ticket: £50 (+BF)
