With the depths of winter taking hold, its hard to even remember spending an entire weekend listening to music at festivals. But Bugged Out have a tasty winter treat in store in January, in the form of the Bugged Out Weekender, to be held at the Butlins Resort in Bognor Regis, West Sussex for three days from the 21st January . We know what we’ll be asking for for Christmas….
Bugged Out is now in its 17th year making it one of the UK’s longest running club nights. Bugged Out boasted LFO at their first night back in November 1994 and since then they’ve had everyone from Daft Punk, Green Velvet, The Chemical Brothers, Richie Hawtin, Tiga, Boys Noize and Carl Craig play at their nights.
As well as running club nights in the UK and Europe, Bugged Out has become a major part of London’s Field Day festival and has also released acclaimed compilations by Erol Alkan, Damian Lazarus, Ivan Smagghe, Miss Kittin, Simian Mobile Disco, Klaxons, Hot Chip, Boys Noize & Brodinski.
The Bugged Out Weekender promises to reflect the clubs history and future with a programme consisting of all the best in techno, acid house and bass music. Relatively new acts and collectives like Joy Orbison and Night Slugs will feature on the same bill as globally huge DJs like Diplo and Chase & Status and Bugged Out legends like techno founders Green Velvet and Kevin Saunderson. The dance scene is pushing the boundaries like no other genre of late and the weekender will reflect and capture this.
The club partners so far confirmed for the weekend are the mighty Union who run club nights all over the UK, have hosted huge events at London’s Fabric and been present at all the big dance festivals in 2011 culminating at their biggest event yet at Brixton Academy this October; the Guardian nailed London’s Night Slugs when they called them “the indefinable dance music team” such is their love of cross pollinating genres, headed up by Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 they’ll be joining up with Glasgow’s Numbers gang who have also been responsible for some of the best music released in recent years from the likes of Hudson Mohawke, SBTRKT and Rustie. We’ve given the keys to the pub to London’s best bar Dalston Superstore who will be bringing Horse Meat Disco’s Severino and Batty Bass’s Hannah Holland along to pull the pints.
