Firework FLEX Festival

Taking place from 1 in the afternoon until 11:00 at night on Saturday 5th November, the FLEX festival is the type of one of a kind event that makes the UK’s festival scene so endlessly inviting. Held on the River Medway in Rochester, its stunning venue will provide views over the water on one side and sights of the beautiful Riverview manor to the other. In all honesty though, you’ll probably be looking upwards for most of the night.

Before we get to the outstanding dance music acts that the FLEX festival is able to bring to you, let’s focus on what makes this such a standout event. Making sure you really do remember remember the 5th of November, the event takes place on Bonfire Night, accompanying its acts with a jaw-dropping array of fireworks, including a phenomenal opening display.

Of course, there are plenty of top-notch acts to draw the attention of even the most jaded firework display veteran. You’ll be able to take in hip hop from the likes of S.kalibre, Dark Assassin, and Camilo Musse, as well as grime from Matt Pearce and Mojo-Margz. For reggae basement sounds, check out Tokes, Micky Ragga, or Irah; to enjoy some old school dance, try Micky Crist, Brooksy, or the legendary David Zowie.

These acts will take to the stage across two arenas, with one focusing on pumping house and the other bringing garage.

Here’s the full line-up to feast your eyes on:

Headlining the garage arena:

  • Wretch 32
  • So Solid Crew (Mega Man, Asher D, DJ Swiss)
  • Deekline
  • Jamieson
  • Bugzee
  • Jason Brooks
  • Mysta Harris
  • Lady S
  • Hazee

MC’s will include PSG, Hyperactive, Roacheman, Dark Assasin, Margz, Mojo, and Kifa.

Headlining the House Arena:

  • David Zowie
  • Micky Crist
  • Ryan Brasco
  • Rob Ireland
  • Nick Gransden
  • Annie Short
  • Solange
  • Coda B2B Lee C

Those are the sort of names that you might expect to demand top-dollar, especially considering the festival’s cool location and assortment of airborne pyrotechnics. However, you’d be blessedly wrong to stumble to that assumption; advanced discount early bird tickets are currently on sale for a mere £25. Act fast, is what we’re saying.

The FLEX Festival is an unmissable event in its own right, but it’s also the perfect way to both celebrate Bonfire Night and bid an explosive farewell to the 2016 British festival season. With tickets available at prices that won’t break
