Whilst music is at the forefront of the festival, the day-long party also has some killer things to compliment to groovy beats coming from its speakers. There are floating stages for water top raving and woodland highways to traverse the scenic grounds. There’ll also be global street food to keep you going strong, as well as cocktail bars, firework displays, boat parties on the lake, and even some live street art. Plus, if you fancy treating yourself to some luxuries, there's a VIP island on site that'll cover all your needs. 

For 2023’s edition, Detonate are saying that we are set to be treated to a “reimagined” version of the festival. That could mean anything, and we’re absolutely buzzing to find out the deets. Watch this space for updates…
