UK Festival Guide 2018
DONNINGTON PARK FOREST, CASTLE DONNINGTON, DERBY
An intimate gathering of the musically like-minded
First debuting in the Derbyshire park in 2016 with two sell-out dates in May and September, with the promise of a diverse musical experience including artists such as Richy Ahmed, Solardo, Chris Lorenzo and Big Narstie on the lineup, they truly cemented themselves as a festival to keep your eye out for in the years to come. Last year they continued where they left off with a collection of noteworthy DJ’s across both festival dates and musical lineups to suit the more diverse palette. April’s edition hosted wAFF, Latmun, My Nu Leng and TDQ on the bill starting the summer with a bang and September followed suit presenting Bugzy Malone, Hazard, Jacky, De La swing and Steve Lawler, closing out the festival season the only way they know how, with classic bangers and dirty beats
Created by a group of rave enthusiasts they felt frustrated by the restrictions that the classic warehouse or tent spaces often encumbered on large-scale events eventually seeking inspiration in a location that was steeped in acid house history Donington Park.
