The Big Reunion is once again set to prove that great festivals aren’t solely a summertime affair. The unlikely venue of Butlins Holiday Centre in Skegness will play host to artists such as Rudimental, Blonde, Hannah Wants, Sigma, Sigala, Lethal Bizzle, and Ms Dynamite, as well as the 10,000 music-lovers that are expected to attend.
Taking place from 18th-20th November and then again from 25th-27th November, this is the UK’s largest indoor winter music festival. You’d be forgiven for thinking that doesn’t sound quite as fun as rocking out in the sunshine at the height of summer, but The Big Reunion takes full advantage of its location to turn the event into a holiday in its own right.
For starters, you can leave your soggy tent at home. Everyone gets indoor accommodation, whether that’s a basic room or a top-notch upgrade with luxuries aplenty. Then there’s the facilities. If you get sick of busting shapes, try visiting the cinema, going bowling, or donning your speedos for a trip to Splash Waterworld.
But maybe you’re the type of hardcore music lover who scoffs at comfort and would gladly pitch up for a mid-winter Glasto if you’d get to enjoy the festival vibe once again. No fear, The Big Reunion is all about giving you more chances to get into the spirit of things, with the following upgrades available:
- The Big Reunion Pre-Party: If two nights isn’t enough, upgrade to the pre-party on Thursday night to get the venue warmed up for the main event. You’ll get an extra night of accommodation and epic sets from Danny Howard & Big Narstie.
- Banter Bus: Sometimes it’s not the destination but the journey. The Big Reunion ‘Banter Buses’ have been organised to take the stress out of travelling while letting you kick back with a whole coach of the like-minded. There are pickup locations from 14 cities across the UK, but you can always book parking if you’d like to wend your merry way there by yourself.
- Late Checkout: Only £10pp lets you stay tucked up in your bed until 2pm on the day of your departure. Whether you want the opportunity to sleep off a heavy night or simply need a chance to unwind before hitting the motorway, you’ll get your wish.
The Big Reunion makes sure UK fests are as much a winter fixture as a summertime staple, all while putting a unique spin on the proceedings. Tickets are now available if you’d like to experience the UK’s biggest winter festival for yourself.
