The Bugged Out Weekender began in Butlins’ flagship resort at Bognor Regis in January 2012. Clubbers from all over the country descended on the holiday resort for three nights of partying never too far from their own bed. Butlins is the perfect place for a weekend away – the huge auditoriums usually used for cabaret are turned into rave rooms by Bugged Out who bring in chest rattling Function One sound systems. You can choose to either stay in the incredible hotels – some only built in 2013 – or the apartments and there are plenty of great restaurants and pubs on site for re-fuelling in the day time as well as well known takeaways.
Day time activities include the famous pool party, a dj competition, pub quiz and musical bingo. At night the four rooms will shake to the sounds of a dj set from The Chemical Brothers – one of the UK’s most legendary dance acts who had such a good time in 2013 they asked to return; Bugged Out stalwarts like Tiga, Erol Alkan and Daniel Avery join us – Tiga hopefully in a Bugatti – and Todd Terje brings his joyous live show alongside chart busting Duke Dumont. Despite being in our fourth year there are plenty of Weekender virgins joining us for the first time including Four Tet, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Âme and legendary Streets man Mike Skinner. It’s a unique event which by nature of the accommodation on site means you’re bound to leave satiated by all the best dance music has to offer and no doubt a load of new friends.
There will be pool parties on Saturday and Sunday at the Bugged Out Weekender 2015. Both will be hosted by big name DJs. We’ve had Skream, The 2 Bears, The Klaxons and many more play the pool parties, so expect some surprises and a variety of inflatables. All included in your ticket price.
They will take place at SplashWorld on site, where they have water cannons, wave pools, rapids, jacuzzis and more flumes than you can shake a glow stick at.
