The first ever Boogaloo Weekender takes over Pontins Camber Sands on 15-18 October
The first names have been announced for Boogaloo Weekender, a brand new three-day event that's taking place at Pontins in Camber Sands on 15-18 October.
The organisers say: “The Boogaloo Weekender is not just another festival. It is a history lesson, a living and breathing ode to the roots, evolution and contemporary stylings of dance music across three days and nights of music – from the early days of the jazz, funk and soul scene, right through to the electronic bleeps and squeaks of house music.”
Boogaloo Weekender will indeed feature DJs from right across the spectrum – from Fabio & Grooverider, Micky Finn, Plump DJs and Atomic Hooligan on the breaks n' bass side of things, through to the likes of David Morales [pictured], Grant Nelson, X-Press 2, Colin Dale, Terry Farley, Terry Francis and Jon Pleased Wimmin on a 4/4 tip. Other attractions include “exhibitions, galleries and discussion panels, a VIP hip-hop party with Prime Cuts and Mental Genius, b-boy dance-offs, fancy dress, a rave flyer gallery, DJ workshops, a graffiti school, Bingo Loco and much more”.
Tickets for the event are on sale now, currently priced £189 for a three-day pass including chalet accommodation. To get yours, or for more info, hit up Boogaloo Weekender's own website.
