On Friday 9th September and Saturday 10th September 2016, The Social festival will be returning to The Kent County Showground in Maidstone, Kent.

I went to last year’s Social Festival in 2015 and that was a great day to say the least. You can check out my weekend review of that here: Weekend Review – The Social Festival 2015


This year is looking even better with a very strong line-up indeed including Carl Cox, Eats Everything, Joseph Capriati and many more! You can get tickets here:

Travelling to the festival is easy too, especially if you are coming from London. Get the train to one of the Maidstone stations and then it is a short walk from there to the festival.


Here is what The Social Festival have to say about their upcoming event:



After many months of curating our most exciting line-up, we are proud to announce that The Social Festival 2016’s full line-up is here and it’s set to provide an incredible soundtrack to what will be a perfect end to the summer.

Friday will see the highly anticipated return of house music pioneers Sasha and John Digweed, who will headline the event with a UK festival exclusive B2B set!

Another debutant at this year’s event will be German superstar Paul Kalkbrenner, who will be showing us what he can do in The Barn Arena.

Joining these incredible artists are Used & Abused boss Loco Dice, Edible head honcho Eats Everything, Andrew Weatherall, Paranoid London Live, Nastia, Guy Gerber and many more.

We start with a techno legend that needs no introduction. Carl Cox will be returning to The Social Festival for the first time since 2014, where he will be teaming up yet again with Social boss and friend Nic Fanciulli.

We also welcome King Solomun back to The Social, who will be playing B2B with close friends and Diynamic residents Adriatique.

New comers Pan-Pot, Joseph Capriati, Agoria, Bicep and Mind Against will also be performing this year, along with Patrick Topping, Richy Ahmed, Hot Since 82, Dubfire, George Fitzgerald plus much more!

As The Social expands, we are excited to announce  a new arena and new genre to the festival, that will see the likes of Roni Size & Krust present Full Cycle with MC Dynamite, High Contrast & Goldie holding down the Bamboo Village on the Saturday.

The Social also sees the introduction of a very unique and boutique camping area, allowing fans from around the world to experience the weekend to the fullest.
