The Social has been bringing discerning dance music to Maidstone in Kent for the past 3 years, with the winter instalment of the festival beginning the year after the inaugural event back in 2013. This years Winter Social is already shaping up to be the best yet, with the first 2 phases of the line up having already been released.
The Winter Social 2016 will take place on the 6th February and will see a move from the Museum Of Kent Life to another close by Maidstone location, Kent’s County Showground. The summer Social, which took place just a few months ago, fully sold out and it is expected that this years Winter Social will resonate just as well with the population of UK clubbers.
Phase one of The Winter Social line up saw the announcement that Innervisions label boss Âme would be performing a DJ set at the festival, whilst a host of other superlative British selectors in Maya Jane Coles, Guy Gerber and Nic Fanciulli will also be playing. As a final onslaught to phase one, Nina Kraviz was also announced.
Phase two of The Winter Social saw the addition of Art Department, Eli & Fur, Maceo Plex and Russ Yallop, which has added even more weight to the equation. The phase three announcements will be dropping in the next few days, so stay tuned to see the final additions, but act now for cheaper tickets!
