Nic Fanciulli and his Saved Records imprint have been throwing parties all over Kent for a number of years, however it is The Social Festival that has become their most renowned get together, which now takes place bi-annually in Kent.
The Social began in 2013 and aimed to bring a taste of Ibiza to the UK through a festival type show, with some of the most respected DJs on the line up that would play throughout the day and into the night at the end of September, signalling the end of the summer season. In 2015, The Winter Social was held for the first time, which mimics The Socials heavy-duty line-ups, however this time hosting the party in February.
