Sasha & Digweed set to go back2back at The Social Festival!

The Social Festival returns on Friday 9th & Saturday 10th September 2016 to its new home, The Kent County Showground.

On Friday 9th September, The Social will deliver something mind blowing. A blast from the past will see Sasha & John Digweed go B2B headlining the Meadow Arena, at the fourth edition of The Social Festival hosted by Mixmag.

Please note, the Friday show with Sasha & John Digweed will be limited to 5,000 customers.

Saturday 10th September will see the return of techno heavyweight Carl Cox. Carl Cox will headline The Social Festival for the second time in the Meadow arena, hosted by Mixmag. The Social Festival 2016 is the first two day event in its history and not only that, they have also introduced a very exclusive boutique camp site for loyal customers!

Nic Fanciulli the director of the Social.

“I’ve never been more excited to announce our headliners for The Social; filled with friends, mentors, and dance music legends, it really means a lot to me.
As a kid I used to religiously follow Sasha & Digweed everywhere around the country and their compilations and music helped shape who I am today. I’ve been given many invaluable opportunities throughout my career, and being able to play alongside both of them individually over the years has definitely been one of them – they were both early supporters of mine, I’m honoured to call them both friends, and extremely proud and excited that their first show show in 8 years will be headlining The Social on Friday.

My relationship with Carl Cox is quite a public affair, most people know the ins and outs of how close we are, and I really owe a lot to him. Playing b2b with him so many times over the years is something I will never take for granted, and he remains the biggest inspiration for me as a DJ – always humble, always smiling, and consistently amazing. Since I was young I’ve been in awe of him, and he continues to impress me every time we get together. I’m super excited that my mentor, and one of my closest friends is headlining Saturday for us.”

John Digweed

“ Its been incredible to see the reaction from our unannounced back to back gig in London last month which took everyone by surprise, so our planned B2B set this September at The Social is set to be a massive not to be missed event in the clubland calendar.”


Very happy to be playing with John again and blown away by the excitement around our comeback. Its fantastic we get to do our first proper gig back at the Social festival. Last year’s was a brilliant event and so much fun. Can’t wait.

More artists will be announced at the end of April, so keep an eye on The Social Festival’s social media.
