Attracting the biggest names in electronic music to the East Midlands year after year, Nottingham's Detonate Festival has become one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the UK's annual festival season. 

Organised and managed by the heads at Detonate, a team of dedicated underground music promoters working out of venues and nightclubs in Nottingham, Sheffield, Leeds and beyond, the 2023 edition of the summertime event will see more than 60 world-renowned talents taking to the ones and twos, spinning a superb and varied soundtrack encompassing drum n bass, house, techno, bassline and more. 

This year's instalment welcomed acclaimed bill-topping names the likes of Wilkinson, Hybrid Minds and RAM Records boss, Andy C, as well as Franky Wah, DJ Seinfeld, Chaos in the CBD, Shy FX, Prospa, Interplanetary Criminal and Nia Archives, to list just a few. Details surrounding the lineup of next year's 'Reimagined' edition have yet to be disclosed but mark our words, it's one you're going to want to keep an eye out for. 

Join 15,000 rave-revelling dance addicts amidst the wide-open spaces of the festival's stunning green setting on Saturday 10th June 2023. Watch your favourite artists performing unforgettable, high-energy sets upon floating stages and out of epic woodland hideaways.
