After months of building tension, during which we were drip-fed the first artists who will be playing at this years Winter Social, we have just been hit with the third and final phase of the line up, with the full team of selectors now ready to descend on Kent County Showground on the 6th February.
Having already added the likes of Maya Jane Coles, Nic Fanciulli, Nina Kraviz and Eli & Fur to the line up that extends to around 15 DJs, there was already more than enough material to ensure any dance music fan could be kept warm throughout. Phase three of the line up has just been announced, with an equally as varied selection of world class selectors amongst this further 6 names that complete the line up for The Winter Social.
The first of the six new arrivals comes in the form of Drumcode head honcho Adam Beyer. As one of the main figureheads of modern, cutting edge techno, he has fronted the release of 149 releases since the label was founded in 1996, with Alan Fitzpatrick, Cari Lekebusch and wAFF being just a cutting from a spool of talented artists he has helped to launch the careers of. Also joining the line up will be Edible boss Eats Everything, scouse hero Yousef, Dutchman Joris Voorn and one of the most exciting female DJs on the circuit at the moment, B.Traits.
Full line up for The Winter Social 2016:
Adam Beyer, Âme, Art Department, B.Traits, Eats Everything, Eli & Fur, Guy Gerber, Joris Voorn, Maya Jane Coles, Nic Fanciulli, Nina Kraviz, Rob Cockerton, Russ Yallop and of course, Yousef.
