Hospitality In The Park announce full lineup featuring Goldie, High Contrast, LTJ Bukem, Calibre, dBridge + more

London’s biggest celebration of drum and bass culture, Hospitality In The Park, is set to make a triumphant return to Finsbury Park on Saturday 22nd September for the third consecutive year. To help celebrate, the award-winning (Best Festival at Drum & Bass Awards 2018) festival have enlisted some of the best DJs, producers, MCs and promoters in the business including headliners High Contrast (live), Danny Byrd, Foreign Beggars (live), LTJ Bukem, plus Metalheadz head honcho and drum and bass royalty, Goldie.

Brought to you by esteemed independent record label, Hospital Records, and their global event brand Hospitality DNB, the 1-day festival have set the bar high with live performances at the festival including Danny Byrd album launch ft GQ, Etherwood, Jungle Warriors, Children of Zeus, International reggae artist Dawn Penn, plus very special guest Ocean Wisdom. After dBridge and Calibre’s exclusive B2B set last year, it comes as no surprise that Hospitality In The Park has lined up even more unique DJ collaborations for 2018 including Chimpo B2B Barely Legal, Crissy Criss B2B Mampi Swift, and dBridge B2B Nu:Tone. InsideInfo & Kasra join forces to debut Circuits, plus Kings Of The Rollers & Shadow Demon Coalition makeup supergroup Kings Of The Shadows.

It wouldn’t be London’s biggest drum and bass party without some exclusive and very special sets across the day including a nod to iconic Metalheadz nightclub Blue Note by Grooverider, Breakage will be rolling out drum and bass classics, S.P.Y. will be treating ravers to a Jungle set, plus drum and bass figurehead LTJ Bukem is locked in for a nostalgic 93-97 set. Further line-up additions include 1985 label showcase ft Alix Perez & Monty, Dillinja, Black Sun Empire, 20 Years of Virus with Ed Rush & Optical, Lenzman, Krakota plus many more special guests to be announced.

The festival will welcome backstage hosts; Czech festival Let It Roll with their brand new ‘Portal Showcase’, Hospital Records sister label Med School who return as Med School XL, which after high demand last year has grown the stage size by ⅓, and big bad party brand Main Squeeze who this year will be sharing the stage with Wah Wah 45’s. Touching down on the park for the first time, Hospitality have invited Croatian Soundsystem culture festival, Outlook, to host a stage full of varied talent. They will also welcome a We Love Jungle trifecta from Jungle Jam, Vibena & Rupture, and joining forces asRun-Vaderz this year are RUN, Bristol’s premier drum and bass night and Invaderz, who are responsible for some of the finest jump up raves in Belgium.
