A new festival concept, Festival 24 gives you the opportunity to party non-stop for 24 hours from midday on Saturday 2nd June all the way through to midday on Sunday 3rd June. Set just north of London, near Watford…the beautifully rustic setting making the perfect backdrop for the festival.
Without mentioning the huge roster of local and upcoming talent, Festival 24 also provides some exciting headliners. South Africa’s young and extremely talented tribal house DJ Culoe De Song is probably the one most worth mentioning for us. A rare gig in the UK, his performance at Festival 24 will be a great opportunity to hear his atmospheric blend of afro house and tribal grooves first hand. Our other picks from the lineup are the energetic Martinez Brothers, Crosstown Rebels Subb-an, Clive Henry and Francesca Lombardo, as well as Huxley, Eats Everything, Bugz in the Attic, Wbeeza, Rocco and Robert James.

One of the things that make an amazing festival so special is the atmosphere. You can have the biggest and best lineup the world has ever scene, but those truly magical moments only occur when all your senses are activated, not just your ears. The mysterious Gottwood Festival set in the woods and near the beach in Anglesey, North Wales, presents something different and refreshing. The beautiful and mystifying setting coupled with the attention to detail and awe inspiring visual displays create an atmosphere before the first track has even been played.
A real festival for the art and the heart, its musical policy doesn’t disappoint either with area’s hosted by the likes of Krankbrother, Hypercolour, Drop The Mustard, Tief, Absent Minds and Louche. Gottwood offer something underground and fresh, a move away from the same old headline dj’s and the same old festival tents.

The infamous Zoo Project in Ibiza has now gained an almost legendary status. At a time when afterparties were being banned and music played in the outdoors was forbidden, the Zoo Project came along at the perfect time; its beautiful surroundings and surreal atmosphere bringing a true Balearic spirit back to the white isle.
Bringing that Balearic vibe to the UK, we’re very excited for the first Zoo Project Festival. Without wanting to lose that same surreal atmosphere that they’ve captured in Ibiza, Zoo have chosen to host the festival in Port Lympne Wild Animal Park between the 14th and 16th September, the first ever festival to be held within the grounds of an active wild animal park!
“Set on 600 acres of stunning grounds, Port Lympne Wild Animal Park features a historic mansion and landscaped gardens with spectacular views over the Kent countryside stretching out to the coast. It is also home to the largest breeding herd of Black Rhinos outside Africa as well as Siberian and Indian tigers, African elephants, monkeys, Barbary lions and many more rare and endangered species”
