Are you more into mirror balls than mud and mosh pits? Do you prefer dancing to swaying? Okay, you should probably skip the standard festival fare and head instead to the 2018 Liverpool Disco Festival. They’ve just confirmed their dates, so it’s time to strike while the iron is hot.
The fourth instalment of Liverpool Disco Festival will be kicking off at Camp & Furnace on Saturday 31st March 2018. This announcement comes hot on the heels of the fantastic 2017 Liverpool Disco Festival, which included standout performances from the likes of:
- Dimitri From Paris
- John Morales
- Linda Clifford
- Julie McKnight
- Ron Carroll
- Jellybean Benitez
- Mr Scruff
- Graeme Park
- Jamie 3:26
- Paul Trouble Anderson
- Get Down Edits
- Natasha Kitty Katt
And, lest we forget, there was also a bunch of awesome pre and after parties on the Friday and Sunday to get things fired up and then continue the party spirit right through the night. Few left disappointed – many left exhausted.
As before, the 2018 Liverpool Disco Festival will be taking place across three days, bringing the very best of disco and soul to a diverse selection of venues across the great city. It should prove the same ground-breaking celebration of art, culture, and music.
The first multi-venue takeover managed to draw crowds from all across the country, and they ended up road-blocking the Baltic Triangle across a weekend that highlighted the very best underground dance music inspired by Chicago and New York City. Legendary US DJs were joined by the most celebrated fans from Europe in a jaw-dropping production that saw lively murals created across the party.
The event gained wider interest after a highlight stage takeover at the Southport Weekender Festival in London this summer, and next year’s event is expected to draw larger crowds than ever. That’s exactly what the Liverpool Disco Festival is all about; as Resident Advisor observes, it’s the ‘crowd’s effervescent attitude that makes the event special’.
There’s good news if you want to be part of that crowd during February 2018: tickets are already on sale. You can pick up your Early Bird ticket now for just £39.95. If you’d rather take in the event in style, opt for an Early Bird VIP ticket for just £58.00. If you’re a student, why not take advantage of the £27.75 Early Bird concession price?
