Bugged Out Weekender 2014 – First Names Announced
New date – March 7, 8, 9th 2014
New venue – Pontins, Southport, near Liverpool
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 a 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.
Today, we are pleased to announce the first set of DJs that will be playing the 2014 anniversary event. Dave Clarke who first played Bugged Out 20 years ago in 1994 – and was a stalwart in the Manchester and Liverpool days – will grace the decks once again. Sasha first played for Bugged Out in 1999 on millennium eve in Liverpool and we are thrilled to have him back for the anniversary event. Bugged Out first discovered Erol Alkan back in 2001 and he soon became the Bugged Out resident whose career now spans 13 years. Dixon, Dusky, Eats Everything, Kölsch and Paul Woolford have all been faces at Bugged Out over the more recent years.
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.
