The fourth edition of 51st State Festival will be the biggest and best yet as the tasteful event once again promises to be an all encompassing celebration of every style of house music that joins the dots between Chicago, New York, London and beyond. This year the party takes place on Saturday August 4th at the beautiful and sprawling Trent Country Park with the likes of Masters at Work, Body & Soul, Soul Clap, Dimitri From Paris, Derrick May, Derrick Carter, Todd Terry, Todd Edwards, Trevor Nelson, Mr Vegas, Norman Jay, John Morales and many more all set to headline.
