Winter may still have a tight grip on the current temperature, but this hasn’t deterred The Garden Party from attempting to coax the first glimpses of sunshine out from behind the cloud cover. Returning to The Faversham Leeds on Sunday 30th April, The Garden Party has enlisted a lineup worthy of wavering in the summer season with aplomb as Eats Everything, Fort Romeau and PBR Streetgang turn in to soundtrack the famed terrace.
Few DJs can boast such a demand for their services as Eats Everything, and it’s not hard to see why the Bristolian rarely has an open date in his diary. Since announcing his presence in 2011 with the aptly title ‘Entrance Song’, Eats Everything has poured the time into mastering his art behind the decks, honing a signature ability to filter, cut and navigate seismic drops through sets with a mercurial ease. Calling on bolder sounds and a more wholesome aesthetic, London based Fort Romeau will keep the dancefloor chugging at a steady rate through the afternoon.

The first instalment of The Garden Party’s 2017 series will see the return of two Leeds favourites in the form of PBR Streetgang. Cutting their teeth as residents at the Technique and Asylum parties, the pairing is well read in pleasing the Leeds faithful with spirited and atmospheric selections – something which the The Garden Party has experienced a handful of times before.
Further support on the day will come from mono_cult resident Matt Long, Butter Side Up’s Hamish Cole, Pleasure Connection and local charity/party purveying collective Brudenell Groove.
