With now just a few days until the picturesque surroundings of Lotherton Hall, Leeds are transformed into a dance music haven as Mint Festival presents the likes of Marco Carola, Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, George Fitzgerald , Ferry Corsten, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Jeff Mills, Marcel Dettmann, David Rodigan and more, we take a lot at what you can expect from the Bitch, Goodgreef & Digital Society and Jungle Jam & Detonate arenas.
As we near the weekend, some much anticipated set time information has now been released – be sure to check this out below but not that headliners will be on early and the team behind the festival are advising arriving before 1pm because of this.
Tickets are now running extremely low for this weekend's event with only 200 remaining at last count this morning! Get yours now before they're gone.
Bitch continue their love affair with Leeds after an incredible day out at Mint Festival last year with Eddie Halliwell and more. Since last year Bitch have been back to Leeds on several occasions hosting parties at both Mint Club and Mint Warehouse with Deniz Koyu, Michael Woods and more. This Saturday (21st September) they return to host their own arena at Mint Festival with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Nervo, Third Party, Danny Howard, Kryder, Riley & Durrant. D.O.D and more.
Note that both Nervo (2:15 – 3:15pm) and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike (3:15 – 4:30pm) (amogst other headliners across the festival) will be playing day time sets.
Goodgreef & Digital Society Arena
UK dance music stalwarts, Goodgreef and Digital Society, bring the trance element of the festival with headliner Ferry Corsten jetting in from his Eden Ibiza residency alongside Aly & Fila, John 00 Fleming, Jordan Suckley, Claudia Cazacu, Menno De Jong and more.
Jungle Jam & Detonate Arena
Leeds based drum and bass/junglist purists Jungle Jam are this year joined by local friends Detonate and boast a hugely impressive lineup. Everyone's favourite reggae selector David Rodigan takes time out of a hectic schedule – which has recently seen the 62 year old host a live session from Maida Vale for BBC Radio 1Xtra as well as bumper performances at the likes of Bestival, Reading/Leeds Festival and of course the Notting Hill Carnival – to head the bill. DJ EZ, Wilkinson, S.P.Y, Fabio, Dub Phizix & Strategy and more supply impeccable support.
