Mint Festival to use RAF Church Fenton as venue for 2018

The last two years of Mint Festival sold out well in advance, but the team are not resting on their laurels: the seventh edition of the north’s most essential dance gathering promises to be the biggest yet, with a brand new and larger venue, more impressive stages and immersive production than ever, and some previously unseen surprises.

Musically, you can be guaranteed of international headliners from the worlds of house, techno, bass, disco, electro, tech, and plenty in between. Each of the four arenas will be hosted by key brands and labels who all bring with their them own sense of colour, character and unique party atmospheres to the all encompassing festival.

We can now announce that RAF Church Fenton, Leeds East airport will now be the venue for 2018. Royal Air Force Church Fenton or RAF Church Fenton was a former Royal Air Force south east of Tadcaster near the village of Church Fenton. The station was opened in 1937 and during the Second World War was home to air defence aircraft, a role retained by the station until the 1960s when it became a training station. It closed in 2013 and is now a civilian airfield known as Leeds East Airport.
