After  the  success  of  this  year’s  Winter  Social  and  the  brand  new  Colombia  and  Mexico ventures in March, The Social Festival and its founder Nic Fanciulli has now unveiled the first wave of names for its fifth anniversary edition. 

Set to round off the summer season, The  Social  will  return  to  Maidstone  this  September  on  Friday  29th &  Saturday  30th  and promises to fire on all cylinders across the festival’s finessed sound system. Festival curator Nic Fanciulli explains:  

“We couldn’t have made it 5 years without each and every one of you... expect some big surprises, some even bigger production and a huge lineup.  I can’t wait to show you what we have in store - let’s celebrate the birthday together”

Close affiliate Carl Cox heads a fellowship of leading lights from the underground scene, and will return to The Social for yet another social gathering of the best and boldest DJs. Joining Carl is a host of house and techno pioneers that have each have spent the best part of the last decade mastering their craft. 

The Martinez Brothers, Black Coffee, Jackmaster, Guy Gerber and Cassy are amongst those confirmed, while for the party purists come two UK playmakers,  old  friends  and  partners  from  the  heyday  to  today:  Sasha  & John  Digweed. 

Matchups continue with Apollonia, the almighty trio of Frenchmen Dyed Soundorom, Dan Ghenacia  and  Shonky.   Butch,  Emmanuel   Satie,  Adriatique and   D’Julz   complete  a textbook  affair  down  to  the  letter,  accumulating  depths  and  decades  of  experience  as The Social Festival itself levels up to the big league. www.thesocialfestival.com
