As we move ever nearer to the festival season, the summer incarnation of The Social Festival begins to take shape, with the first announcements for Nic Fanciulli’s 2-day party featuring three DJs with legendary status. The Social will take place at its new home of the Kent County Showground 9th-10th September where the festival’s winter counter part, The Winter Social had its first outing earlier in the year.
For all those who look back on the 90s and can’t help but be over but be overcome with a bit of rave induced nostalgia, then the first names on The Social 2016 lineup will be what you have been holding out for all this time. Formidable duo Sasha and John Digweed will be coming together once again to try and recreate the magic that they fashioned every time they came together behind the decks throughout the 1990s and 2000s. Following a huge response to the pair’s previous comeback performance, expect scenes of euphoria when Sasha & Digweed trade records once more on the Friday at The Social.
Joining Sahsa & Digweed will be none other than the Ibiza king, oh yes, oh yes, we’re talking about the main man himself, Carl Cox. With his tenure at Space Ibiza coming to an end this September, Carl Cox will making a number of festival appearances in the UK over the course of the summer before heading to The Social on the 10th September.
A selection of weekend, camping and day tickets are on sale now for The Social Festival 2016.
