Bugged Out Weekender 2015 Announce Second Wave of Acts
Following its launch announcement earlier this month, the Bugged Out Weekender is pleased to announce the second wave of acts to be confirmed for the 2015 edition. Heidi, Leon Vynehall, Mike Skinner, Roman Flügel, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs DJ Set and Skream will all be playing at the event, which, in its fourth year, will be returning to the Butlins resort in Bognor Regis on Jan 16/17/18th 2015.
Skream, always a Bugged Out highlight, has graced the Weekender for the last two years and played to a packed out, sweaty and energetic room. This year he’s back for a third time having just put out blazing new track Still Lemonade. Elsewhere, original pirate founder of The Streets Mike Skinner and Leon Vynehall – whose new piano-led track for Clone’s Royal Oak imprint, Butterflies, is receiving rave reviews across the board – make their Weekender debuts.
Also added to the 2015 Weekender is first lady of house and Bugged Out regular, Heidi and Orlando Higginbottom aka Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs who will be taking to Butlins with a DJ set. Lastly, ‘the man with the most luxurious hair in techno’ (so says The Guardian) and one of Germany’s biggest electronic music exports, Roman Flügel, will be making his debut performance at the event.
The Bugged Out Weekender has become something of a staple in the dance music fan’s calendar. The previous sold-out years have provided some exceptional moments with both dance music’s freshest and most established talent. From Route 94 dropping his number 1 record Your Love (the hour it went to number 1) to a dance-floor packed full of fans who sung the song back to the producer, to The Chemical Brothers blowing the roof off with their extra special set in in 2013 and the 2 Bears getting an entire swimming pool of people dancing at the pool party last year – Bugged Out Weekender is the dance music event of the year.
Throughout this year, Bugged Out, one of the UK’s most enduring, influential club nights, continue to celebrate their 20 year anniversary – an enormous accomplishment and an epic journey marked with some truly memorable moments. It has, over this time, become something of clubbing phenomenon. Evolving out of dance music institution Jockey Slut magazine (RIP) in 1994 at Sankeys Soap in Manchester where the likes of Daft Punk, Richie Hawtin and the Chemical Brothers played early shows. Since then Bugged Out has thrown regular parties in London, Liverpool, Ibiza, Milan, Barcelona and continues to act as a habitual destination for fans of cutting edge dance music.
2014 has been a landmark year for Bugged Out – celebrating its 20 year anniversary this year, the media praise surrounding the anniversary has been effusive, with Vice/Thump running an informative and humorous documentary on the Godfather of UK club brands http://bit.ly/1eEXBPc, whilst i-D magazine published an eight page tribute. 20 years on and Bugged Out continues to act as a pioneer in dance music, predicting trends and discovering new talent.
