Cocoon in the Park to celebrate 10th Anniversary



Cocoon in the Park are celebrating their 10th Birthday this year, as they return to Temple Newsam in Leeds on Saturday 14th July.

This year, Sven Vath will be joined by Seth Troxler, Tale of Us, Craig Richards, Apollonia, Enzo Siragusa, Archie Hamilton, Rossko, residents Annie Errez and Bobby O’Donnell and more for this years instalment of the event.  On top of the mega line-up they have a huge crystal clear sound, stunning visuals and fx designed to bring the best out of the glorious location.

They tell us the story of how the first event went down, goes like this: “In 2009 a one day one night one stage festival made an extraordinary debut in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside. The legendary Sven Vath and Shane Graham, the mastermind behind the Mint brand and the influential Leeds night System, had been out and about somewhere. They had a moment, a big idea – a vision. The next morning, in the cold light of day, the vision was somehow still there and it had bells on. Cocoon in the Park was born.”

Grahame Farmer

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.
