The Social Festival
Nic Fanciulli’s cutting edge dance music festival, The Social has kept its loyal following on the edge of their seats, releasing one act each week from an exceptional programme of globally acclaimed electronic music. The incredible all-star line-up is almost complete with Seth Troxler, Dixon, Âme, Guy Gerber, Art Department, Ben Pearce, Craig Richards, Gorgon City, Nina Kraviz, Route 94, Subb-an (Live), tINI, Second City, Shadow Child and Mark Fanciulli all set to round off festival season in fitting style in the idyllic surroundings of Moat Park, Maidstone on Saturday 13th September.
Joining already announced Carl Cox and Nic Fanciulli is one of the scene’s most recognizable figures, infamous in equal parts for his infectious productions and larger-than-life persona; Seth Troxler truly adds a Midas touch to any dancefloor that falls under his jurisdiction. Head honchos of respected imprint Innervisions, Dixon and Âme will each step up to treating festival goers to the melodic, immersive sound that has become synonymous with the label.
Recently announced Guy Gerber shot to the forefront of club culture with the release of his stand-out Fabric 64 mix last year, gaining him a weekly residency at Amnesia and firmly cementing himself amongst dance music’s elite. Brining a feminine touch to proceedings are techno diva Nina Kraviz and Desolat’s first lady tINI. Crosstown Rebels stalwarts Art Department have paved their way through the ranks of house and techno since they joined forces back in 2009. The Canadian production duo have smashed their way to notoriety with their distinctive deep, vocal driven house which will be perfectly framed in the stunning surroundings of Moat Park. Art Department will be joined by Crosstown Rebels comrade Subb-an who despite his young age, has already clocked up nearly a decade in the industry. His recent single ‘Say No More’ shot to number one in Resident Advisor’s March chart with rumors of his much anticipated debut LP on it’s way. Having hit the top spot with his infectious house banger ‘My Love’ Route 94 will also be heading to Kent whilst Gorgon City and Second City will be pounding the dancefloor of The Social’s VIP area with their infectious, up-beat sound alongside Shadow Child’s bass- led grooves. Fabric’s longest standing resident Craig Richards and Nic Fanciulli’s brother and Saved partner in crime, Mark Fanciulli round off one of 2014’s hardest hitting line-ups for electronic music.
Having already smashed their way through four tiers of tickets, and with further acts still up their sleeve, The Social is looking set to round off festival season in outstanding style.
