For the past five years Sven Vath and his Cocoon imprint have been hosting Cocoon In The Park in the stunning surroundings of Temple Newsam in Leeds (the city where Sven held his first DJ residency, at Orbit). Cocoon, hosted in partnership with Mint and System, is the only event of it's type in the country and has seen Cocoon favourites such as Loco Dice, Luciano, Seth Troxler and more man the decks. The last time Mint and Cocoon teamed up for a club night in Leeds was Boxing Day 2012, when Ilario Alicante and a live set from Guti headed the soundtrack – check out our exclusive review here.
This time round it is to Mint Warehouse that the party migrates, and as the capacity increases, the firepower in the lineup follows suit. Thought of by many as the best DJ on the planet, Chilean-German heavyweight Ricardo Villalobos returns to Leeds alongside one of the pearls of Romanian techno, Raresh and Cocoon favourite Onur Ozer (check out when Ricardo was featured in the Ticket Arena Mix Of The Week here).
As expected ticket sales for Cocoon Mint Warehouse have been huge with Early Bird and First Release selling out in a matter of days. Second release tickets now on sale. Advance Cocoon Mint Warehouse tickets are the only way to guarantee entry.
