Day One in Birmingham, or New Years Day as we more commonly refer to it, is this year going to be dominated once more by a festival that is inviting a huge selection of world-renowned electronic music talent to help thousands of people celebrate the coming of 2015.
Last year, Day One Festival proved to be a massive success, so naturally this year the event organisers have had the opportunity to make it bigger and better, which is exactly what they’ve done. From the team who created the fathomable GLAS daytime parties, Lab11 and TRMNL, Day One Festival will see the closure of an entire street, with the surrounding warehouses and car parks being transformed into multi sensory clubbing environments, filled with next level production that will include lights, lasers and exceptional sound. Filling up the various areas will be 4,000 clubbers who will be ready and raring to hear some of the best music the country will have to offer on New Years Day.
Headlining Day One Festival will be MK, the revered house master who, on top of being the creator of several house classics like Burning and Always, has been revelled as a modern house maestro since his more recent singles and remixes including Look Right Through and Blue Jeans, which have topped the charts. Also joining MK will be Circo Loco favourites Davide Squillace and Matthias Tanzmann. These two are well established artists both individually and together as they are two thirds of the DJ super group Better Lost Thank Stupid, an imprint which has hosted it’s won flagship night at DC-10 in Ibiza.
Adding even more weight to the line up is Fuse residents Rossko and Seb Zito, two DJs who are regulars at the Sunday afternoon London get together that is hailed as having one of the best party atmospheres in the country. The list doesn’t stop there as Huxley, Samu.l, DeWalta, Waze & Odyssey, Leftwing & Kody, Lauren Lo Sung, Cause & Affect and Jakkin Rabbit continue and finish off this frankly huge line up that will be keeping all in the celebratory mood. With the main event taking place from 12pm-1am, only to be followed by an after party at a to-be-announced location, Day One Festival is looking to set the standard even higher for their future get togethers.
