The Social celebrating five years
Since it’s inception in 2013, The Social Festival has been pushing boundaries to bring the finest line-ups in electronic music to Kent. Past events have seen the likes of Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola, Joseph Capriati, Adam Beyer, Dixon, Nina Kraviz, Maya Jane Coles, Art Department, Joris Voorn, Âme, Seth Troxler, Patrick Topping, Richy Ahmed, Dubfire, Bicep, Andhim, Guy Gerber, Jackmaster and Laurent Garnier descend on to The Garden of England.
Every year The Social produces spectacular and exclusive sets, the kind that are talked about for years to come and their fifth birthday is certainly no exception. The Social Festival 2016 saw the titanic reunion of Sasha and John Digweed, who played together back-to-back for the first time in a 6 year hiatus.
The music isn’t the sole focus for The Social Festival – boss Nic Fanciulli has selected distinct experiences from his round-the-world travels to create a unique festival setting. Nic and his Social team pride themselves on bringing ravers an unforgettable festival that is sure to keep you on your toes from the moment you enter to the moment you leave.
The Social Festival has enjoyed heaps of success in its first 5 years, picking up multiple awards including DJ Mag’s ‘Best Boutique Festival 2015’ and ‘Best Dance Festival 2016’.
These achievements have been equally matched by The Social’s widespread acclaim from festival-goers, organisers, and DJs across the globe. Dubbing The Social as the ‘best UK dance festival’ The king of Ibiza himself Carl Cox said: “What was really amazing at The Social was that you had nearly all the best DJs from all over the world playing all different styles of music”.
Sasha: “Nic and his team worked tirelessly to get John Digweed and I to play together for his festival… the festival was possibly one of the best I’ve ever played, from the sound and production to the people they had running the event were simply superb!”
Less than an hour by train from the centre of London, The Social Festival returns to the Kentish countryside with its world-class production quality to deliver four gigantic arenas – The Meadow, The Barn, The Stables, and a special 4th arena TBA – that will showcase fast-rising talent and industry legends alike. The 5th birthday milestone has prompted the team to introduce some never-before-seen outdoor arenas for a new and exciting experience!
The Social Festival is beyond proud to confirm that across the two days, Mr. Fanciulli will be accompanied by the following acts (alphabetical order):
Sasha B2B John Digweed
The Martinez Brothers
+ much more TBA…
(Set times TBA)
