The Social Festival 2018
With 2017 marking the fifth anniversary of this boutique house and techno festival based at The Kent County Showground in Maidstone, The Social Festival celebrated the big milestone in style with a huge lineup across three stages with the help of Fabric and Resistance. Nic Fanciulli - festival founder and international superstar - originally had the desire of wanting to bring his view of the Ibiza lifestyle to the UK when he saw the need for hosting world-class dance music parties in his hometown of Maidstone. This two-day annual festival has grown quickly over the years, promising a wild party that features state-of-the-art sound systems, impressive lighting and visuals, as well as showcasing the best in techno and house music that appeals to The Social’s dedicated fanbase of avid club goers that find comfort in moving to the sound of the underground.
Previous acts at The Social Festival include the likes of Carl Cox, Paul Kalkbrenner, Nina Kraviz, Loco Dice, The Martinez Brothers, Sasha, and so many more. Following a set of local events including Deadmau5, there is no stopping this behemoth of a festival as it takes over the city for another year of great electronic music.
