It's the news that the UK's soulful house fraternity have been waiting for - Southport Weekender is back! Except that instead of being a weekend-long party at a holiday camp, the much-loved institution, which came to an end in 2015 after a 28-year run, now takes the form of a one-day event in London's Finsbury Park.

Saturday 10 June is the date, and it's one that lovers of trad-style US house and garage won't want to miss. Not when the DJ line-up includes (deep breath): Kerri Chandler, Jazzy Jeff, Roger Sanchez, Tony Humphries, David Morales, Derrick Carter, Detroit Swindle, Osunlade, Danny Krivit, DJ Spen, Karizma, Grant Nelson, Jazzie B, John Morales, Graeme Park, Booker T and CJ Mackintosh.

But Southport was never just about the soulful house vibes, so as well as the above you can also catch the likes Juan Atkins, Deetron, Stacey Pullen, Kenny Larkin, Eddie Fowlkes, LTJ Bukem, T Williams, Jumping Jack Frost and DJ Fen & MC Creed.

If you fancy the sound of that lot, then tickets are available now, priced £40, from the festival website.
