United Festival Returns
This summer London has been the home to a number of massive outdoor dance events from One Dance to South West Four, all delivering some of the best and biggest acts in the industry. Even though Summer is nearly over there is one more event that the city has to offer.
In 6 days time United Festival will return to Finsbury Park in North London to hold the annual outdoor event, returning once again after its huge success at last year’s event, which celebrate 25 years of rave culture. This year is a massive step up from last year’s event with even more on offer. In one field expect 150 acts to performing across 8 arenas with announced special guests DJ Marky, Oxide & Neutrino and Sam Supplier. There really is something for everyone at United ranging from drum and bass and old Skool to house, trance and UK garage.
The Main Stage consists in some of the biggest names in drum and bass with legends DJ Hype and Harry Shotta topping the bill. Shotta will also be performing on the One Nation stage alongside the rest of the SASASAS.
The One Nation Stage is sure to create a buzz with the biggest jump-up drum and bass artists perfomring. Majistrate and The Prototypes are to name just two, and with both acts having had such a successful year, the show is no doubt going to be one of the best in the UK. Then the king of drum and bass himself, Hazard, is taking the stage for the final set. As well as providing the ravers of Finsbury Park, though, with the best DJs the UK has to offer, we can’t forget to mention the amazing lineup of MCs on offer; Eksman, Skibadee, Evil B, and Stormin.
United’s Moon Dance Stage, which will incorporate more drums, old skool and jungle, will also play host to more huge artists with their performing MCs. Hamiltion, Randal, Mikey Finn, Kenny Ken and Nicky Blackmarket will all make you spoilt for choice.
If you fancy a change from dnb, make sure you check out the Twice As Nice Stage for some funky UK garage, again sporting some of the biggest garage artists in the UK, bringing sexy and stylish old school vibes from the likes of DJ Luck & Mc Neat, Pied Piper and Ramsey & Fen.
For all the house heads out there, United have thrown in two packed out house stages, which covers all areas of the genre. Marshall Jefferson will headline the Promised Land with classic house anthems. Shuffle across the field to Lisa Pin Up, Mark EG and M Zone with MC RIbbz, bringing in the hard house on the Frantic Stage.
This year Mental Asylum Records are curating a stage, which will hold some of the nations best trance music. Get ready to go crazy as soon as the sun goes down.
