Preview: Outlook Festival 2016

Year after year great nightclubs from London and afar face closure for reasons ranging from crime to cross-rail, and festivals face the risk of becoming a tent filled puddle (see Glastonbury last week). This, and many other factors, means that more and more Brits are heading overseas for their escape from reality.

Enter please, Outlook Festival; kicking off from 31st August until 4th September. For most people Outlook is not a new name to their ears. Its previous 8 years of debauchery in the sun has landed itself quite a name within bass music and soundsystem culture. Outlook was one of the first UK festivals to land itself in Croatia, and despite many other newcomers to the show, has maintained its heavyweight title.


As always, Outlook has assembled some of the scene’s most prolific artists, DJs, and MCs. In the grime and UKG corner we have Section Boyz, sure to deliver their new hit ‘Lock Arff’, Kurupt FM, a new grime collective who even have a documentary about their lives, and DJ Q, who needs no introduction. The always stellar drum and bass line up features the likes of Andy C, DJ Hype, Golide, High Contrast, Nosia, and Dub Phizix, who are guaranteed to get the place jumping after hours. Outlook will also be graced by the one and only Damien Marley, alongside other reggae and dub artists like Congo Natty and David Rodigan MBE.


The venues for such a musical array are as diverse as the musical genres, with the opening party kicking off the weekend in a historic amphitheatere, and intimate boat parties complimenting the main festival site, ranging from beachside parties to abandoned forts.

For those of you thinking about buying tickets for Outlook 2016, don’t think, just do. You won’t regret it.
