As Boundary Festival drops the mic on the latest acts to be added to its bill, Alex Berdugo outlines what else we can expect from Brighton’s latest offering.
If you’re searching for a day of top club music from some of the best in the business, look no further. 2016 marks the first year of Boundary Festival – set in Stanmer Park – on 17th September with a line up guaranteed to get your toes tapping.
At the Mixmag X Concorde2 main stage, there is a plethora of chart topping artists to keep you dancing all throughout the day. Craig David’s TS5 will be celebrating the success of their most recent single, One More Time, a track that has become an essential addition to their growing list of hit songs. Their tunes will be rivaled only by acts such as the huge DJ duo Snakehips, whose hit track All My Friends (featuring vocals from Tinashe and Chance The Rapper) took the charts by storm; they’re now making a statement in Brighton with their new single, Cruel. Other artists on the lineup include feel-good music producer Bondax, and Groove Armada with their repertoire of nightclub staples.
Secondly, at the LWE X Patterns stage, the audience can expect various and unrelenting thumping house tunes (in true Patterns fashion). Artists such as Joy Orbison will be leaving an impact with tracks such as Hyph Mngo and So Derobe. Festivalgoers also have the opportunity to catch Tom Trago with his captivating take on house music, as well as must-hear songs from Mehtola and Charles Green.
The Elrow X The Arch stage will be home to producers of trance-infused house, such as renowned beat maker Seth Troxler. The audience cannot miss tracks such as the unrelenting Hurt and Aphrika. Solardo, Richy Ahmed, Ton Varga, Sean Branton and Paul S are also on the line up, with music that will take you to Ibiza and back (en route cloud nine).
Finally, we reach the star-studded line up of the Boundary X Bandstand stage. Most noticeable names on the list include Congo Natty (ft. Congo Dubz and Iron Dread), but Jaguar Skills is also well worth checking out. While Congo Natty draws the crowds in with his high-energy dub reggae – a show that is not to be missed – Jaguar Skills brings nostalgic and flawless DJ talent to the Bandstand, already having proven time after time again his ability to create an electrifying atmosphere. Toddla T and Serocee will also be present, most famed for their mainstream hits that include Take It Back and Watch Me Dance.
As if the promise of a day of excellent music wasn’t enough, all of the festival’s food is locally sourced and guaranteed to be of high quality. There is something for everybody, with vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and carnivorous options alike. So be sure you give yourself the opportunity to find a new taste in food as well as music!
Boundary Brighton’s debut is destined to be a powerful one, with the perfect vibes for all day dancing and appreciating your favourite house music in some of Brighton’s finest venues. This is a refreshing festival that is bound to leave an impression.
