As momentum grows for Southampton’s first ever dance music festival, Junk Department announce three colossal after parties and additional two stages for their epic Big Top all-dayer on Saturday 3rd May.

The action will move to nearby Southampton city centre*, where the first of two after parties takes place at their infamous stomping ground TRiPP (formerly Junk). Leading proceedings through the darker hours is Apollonia co-founder Shonky. His distinctive disco-tinged sound is merciless to the dancefloor and has seen releases on respected labels such as Culprit, Crosstown Rebels and Spectral Sound as well as his own Apollonia. Joining Shonky is Junk Department favourite Laura Jones; taking the party from day to night, for her second set of the day, she will be joined by long-time collaborator and Irish mainstay Gavin Herlihy, along with residents Luca Pilato, Jody Hannan and Rhymos.

Hosted by High Tide and DBP, the second after party will see extended sets from two of the hottest names on the scene. Steadily smashing his way through the ranks of house music elite, Darius Syrossian, Ben Pearce & Flashmob.

To satisfy those with more bass-leaning orientation, the third after party will be hosted at Voodoo by bass music connoisseurs Bang Bang with a line-up including Bitr8 b2b with Kirby, Depth, Dub Concept and Luna Grooves with two special guest headliners still to be announced. 

To get you in the mood we have an Exclusive mix from Gavin Herlihy:

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
