A new pair of festivals will have the south bouncing to garage beats this summer, with South East Dance in Southend and Bristol’s South West Dance both launching in the coming months. Sure to make a big first impression as they open doors and let the masses 2-step in, both festivals will make a real go of bringing the old skool to the forefront of the UK dance scene once again.
Booked in for Saturday 15th July, South West Dance will be held at Bristol’s Cleve Rugby Park, with a UK Garage stage hosted by Garage Nation welcoming DJ Luck & MC Neat, Oxide & Neutrino, Sticky and more. Over on the Drum & Bass Stage, G Dub, Logan D and Grooverider are among the enlisted selectors, whilst DJ S, Jack N Danny and Majesty head up the House Stage.
Over in Southend, DJ Luck & MC Neat will again be dealing out the old skool, as will Artful Dodger, Rat Pack and a big gang of other DJs. Located at Garon Park, the festival runs during the day of Saturday 26th August, making it a perfect end to the summer months as festival season starts to say its goodbyes.
