WEEKID EVENTS| Found Festival 2016
This summer welcomes the fourth edition of Found Festival, bringing club culture to the vast grassy landscape of Brockwell Park, Brixton for an all-day festival on Saturday 11th June. Found Series are proud to be partnered with Mind.
For this year, the line up brings in some of the biggest names and the stages are hosted by 5 of the most forward-thinking parties and labels in dance music today. Found have reeled in music luminaries Derrick May and Kerri Chandler for their debut, headlining the main stage. Mixing in with the established, you are also presented with underground’s hottest names Dyed Soundorom, Midland and Leon Vynehall, who will be taking over the open-air arena.
Bringing in the pounding kick drums of techno, the Find Me In The Dark stage will be headlined by Surgeon and Blawan’s moniker Trade. Dystopian’s head honcho, Rodhad who will no doubt supply the best that Berlin’s techno scene has to offer, will be joining them. Alongside that, you have Legowelt and the bosses of esteemed Ilian Tapes, The Zenker Brothers. Moving away from the heavy, ominous side of techno, Lobster Thermin’s Route 8 will be providing his trademark set of melodic tracks.
Last year’s show stealer, Chicago house originator Ron Trent, will be headlining the Secretsundaze arena. A member of Three Chairs and Detroit house legend Marcellus Pittman, Theo Parrish and Linkwood will also be joining him, providing the finest funky and jazzy house sets. Mr. Beatnick and the Secretsundaze residents are also on the bill.
East London born record label, Art of Dark will be hosting an international line up of innovative DJs such as one-third of RPR Soundsystem, Petre Inspirescu, representing the unique sound that Romania has to offer. Giving London a taste of what Berlin’s underground scene currently looks like, Mara Tax and Binh will be bringing that sound to Brixton. These acts will be supporting Art of Dark’s residents Colin Chiddle and Laurine.
Providing the grooves will be the Feelings stage, headlined by a not to miss set from Mood II Swing, as it’s their first UK show in the more than a decade. The dreamy Beautiful Swimmers and fun and funky Pender Street Steppers will also be there to bring in the summer grooves, making your hips move. Respected Feelings’ residents Ryan, Gustave and Karl will be getting things warmed up.
Moving back to the DIY roots and non-pretentious ways of dance culture, there will be no VIP area at the festival. You will be able to move freely through the festival site enjoying all six eclectic stages. With a mixture of dark and ominous, and feel-good grooves, there is sure to be a stage for everyone. It is sure to be a great start to the early festival season.
