Whilst a certain Geordie Saturday Night Takeaway host has been making national headlines lately for all the wrong reasons, your favourite North East festival is buzzing (in a sober kind of way) to announce details of the DETOX Saturday Night Takeover at Lindisfarne Festival 2018.
On Saturday 1st September, those that ‘Dare to be Different’ will be returning to the great outdoors with the hedonism, decadence and spiritual freedom that only a festival setting can conjure up.
After 17 years of running some of the most infamous parties the North East has seen in castles, stately homes, cinemas, fire stations, river cruisers and all of those warehouse spaces in between; Lindisfarne Festival 2018 will be DETOX’s first foray back into festival fever since 2008’s infamous In-Dependance over ten years ago!
Taking control of our now infamous outdoor venue the 'Circle of Inclusion’, powered by the Conical Bass sound system, DETOX will be taking over the decks on Saturday night to present all you festival ravers with a 10 whole of hours of hard beats and techno treats for your aural pleasure.
Here's what those Detox festival debutants had to say about things...
"As some guy called Liam (no not the Oasis one but his former brother in law) once said “Dance Music doesn’t need Politics, you just need to know does it make you want to dance!” (L. Howlett ~ 1991)
So, don’t expect us to tell you how we are ‘curating’ this (we aren’t a fashion show) or to regale you with the DJ’s shoe sizes (like you would even care) but what we will say is that we have a veritable array of local techno DJ talent & one of the most renowned DJs of the Acid Techno & free party scene."
The rogue’s gallery of DJ talent goes a little something like this...
- CHRIS LIBERATOR (Stay up Forever, London Acid Techno)
- TOKYO ACID CRU (Freaky Dancing, The Tanners)
- STATIC (Detox, Sunday Trading, Cause and Effect)
- MANTIRA (Aria Knights)
- SHARON COMMON (Exhibit A: Substance, Play Dirty)
- SCOT NICOLSON (Disco Noir, Wax:On, U Freak, Hooked, Habit)
- WLSN (Climax, Biotech, Hypno House, Deep Down Dirty, Sheeva)
- ROGUE SQUADRON (Freaky Dancing & Dot: R)
- EARL GREY (Conical Base, Detox Relativity)
- DEAD RUM (Conical Bass Sound System)
Festivities commence 5pm on Saturday (01/09) evening and (for those still standing) finish 3am Sunday.
We have a limited number of discounted tier 3 tickets remaining... but if you’re not fast you’re last! So come on and sign yourself up for a little DETOX at Beal Farm this summer.
With onsite camping and glamping available, there's certainly no need to jump behind the wheel after... Ant McPartlin take note!
