Outbreak Festival is still very much the new kid on the block of Festivals but after the likes of house legend’s Kerri Chandler and Dennis Ferrer joined MK, Hot Since 82 and many more back in March for the Spring Festival it’s easy to see why people are standing up and taking notice of this small group of promoters from Leicester.
The next one is to be held on Halloween weekend, Friday 31st October and Saturday 1st November, taking place at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, the home of Coventry City Football Club. The Festival has been hailed by locals and many others in the Midlands area for providing a different approach to the outdoor muddy field festivals (not saying we don’t like a little dance in the mud) but we prefer to be based entirely indoors around this time of year.
The Friday night line up see’s a much more varied side of electronic dance music with the likes of chart topping duo Gorgon City joining house names such as Hannah Wants, Tough Love and Kidnap Kid. Bristol lad Phaeleh is also headlining the Friday night along with MBE winner David ‘Ram Jam’ Rodigan providing an alternate entertainment for the Reggae lovers out there.
The Saturday night has a much more underground feel with the Outbreak Team pulling all the stops out to provide the crowd with some of the biggest names in Techno and House around. Nina Kraviz and Moon Harbour founder, Matthias Tanzmann are headlining in the Techno Arena joined by many others such as Paul Woolford and One Records very own Adam Shelton.
Headlining one of the other Main Stage’s on the Saturday night is Hot Creations co-founder Lee Foss, chart toppers Route 94 and Secondcity, Heidi and newcomer to the scene Patrick Topping. If that isn’t too your liking then you could always pop into the Drum and Bass Arena hosted by DJ SS celebrating 25 Years of his clubbing brand Formation which is headlined by Drumsound & Bassline Smith and The Prototypes plus many more.
Earlybird tickets for the event sold out before the 1st phase of headlining artist’s were even released but not too worry if you didn’t get chance to grab one as the 3rd release have just gone back on sale ranging from a very reasonable £30.50 for one night all the way upto £68.50 for the whole weekend VIP ticket.
