If the UK needs anymore festivals on the annual calendar is questionable at best. The hectic festival season now starts at the end of May and runs until the back end of September, squeezing every possible date from the short British summer.
Blissfields sits bang in the middle of all this on the 1st of July, hosted in the tranquil Hampshire countryside in the south of England. Having run for ten years the festival has gained a reputation as a strong smaller alternative to the larger festivals, that hog the mainstream attention. But this year Blissfields have upped the game, increased capacity, added more stages and gone and asked Future Disco to host a stage of it’s own on the Friday night!
Without a second thought, we agreed and got to work on putting together a fine line up that would kick off the festival with a bang. Headline slot goes to Crazy P Soundsystem who combine Djing and vocals form Danielle Moore to ensure the party goes off! New producer on the block Maxxi Soundsystem, who plays more than a handful of festivals this summer, gets busy for his first appearance for Future Disco. Then our friends Wolf Music join residents Sean Brosnan and Dom Chung to fill the gaps and take the party from 8pm until 3am.
If you needed any more encouragement that this will be a night not to be missed then the whole evening in played out on top of a bus. This is not like any other bus, but a double decker with a Jacuzzi on the top deck, alongside the DJ, bar on the bottom and an outside soundsystem. Whether you can DJ while in the jacuzzi remains to be seen, but we will no doubt give it a try at some point over the 7 hours.
