Bugged Out Weekender 2014 announce Seth Troxler and more
In 2014 one of the UK’s most enduring, influential club nights, Bugged Out, will celebrate their 20-year anniversary – an enormous accomplishment and an epic journey marked with some truly memorable moments.
Across the year Bugged Out will be celebrating this significant milestone, starting with what has become their flagship event: the Bugged Out Weekender – and where better to kick off the birthday festivities than the place where it all began, in the north of England. After two hugely successful events in 2012 and 2013, the 2014 Bugged Out Weekender will take place on the new dates of March 7, 8, 9th at new location; the Pontins resort in Southport, near Liverpool. The multi-roomed event features world renowned DJs and live acts, accommodation on site and will include pool parties and day-time activities.
Newly announced is Seth Troxler, the BBQ joint opening, RA Top 100 DJ poll topping, clothes shedding enfant terrible of Detroit techno who will be playing at the Weekender for the first time. Joining him is fellow Detroit ambassador Carl Craig and Dirtybird founder Claude Von Stroke who played the Weekender in 2012. Also confirmed is Pete Tong favourite Ben Pearce and Julio Bashmore, the latter who, with two Weekenders and a recent sell-out show at Electric Brixton under his belt, is a key figure in the new generation Bugged Out family.
Bugged Out has, over time, become something of clubbing phenomenon. Evolving out of dance music institution Jockey Slut magazine (RIP) in 1994, Sankeys in Manchester became the first home to the then new club brand, where the likes of Daft Punk, Richie Hawtin and the Chemical Brothers played early shows. They spent 5 years in Liverpool from 1998 at the 3500 capacity Nation before making the move down south to Fabric and The End. For 20 years Bugged Out has thrown regular parties in Liverpool, Manchester, London, Ibiza, Milan, Barcelona and Ibiza and continues to act as a habitual destination for fans of cutting edge dance music.
