Junction 2 Festival has recently announced details ahead of this summer's highly anticipated return event. The team behind the festival, which was cancelled due to transport strike action taking place across the English capital back in 2022, have promised its most ambitious instalment to date, with new stage designs leading the event's 'vision' for the future of Junction 2 events.

Residing once again over its now spiritual home of Boston Manor Park in London, from Friday 21st July to Saturday 22nd July, the summer dance soiree is set to welcome performances from some of the most influential names in contemporary electronic music. With a heavy emphasis on back-to-back sets, the first wave of DJ talents confirmed to appear on stage together includes the likes of Ben UFO with Helena Hauff, Daphni with Hunee, Mall Grab with Skin on Skin, Elkka with Sofia Kourtesis, to name a few.

Pioneering electronic act Underworld also joins the notable lineup, alongside techno icon Jeff Mills, Or:la, Charlotte de Witte, Hessle Audio, Kessie and Palestinian powerhouse, Sama' Abdulhadi.



Pre-sale tickets will be made available for purchase on Tuesday 17th January at 12 pm, exclusively to those who have signed up via Junction 2's website (junction2.london). The festival has introduced a deposit scheme to help guests secure and spread the cost of their tickets for this year's event, with day tickets beginning at £20 and weekend tickets £40.
