South West-based vibe suppliers, Dad Bod Boogie have teamed up with award-winning Bristol superclub, Motion to deliver the venue's first big party of the year.
Commandeering the airwaves on the first payday of the year - Friday 27th January 2023 - those eager to break in the new year, and default on their Dry January commitments, should expect rowdy sets from well-known DJ names the likes of tribal house pioneer, Mele (Edible, Defected), Honeyluv, Ellis Roberts and Big Miz going back-to-back with Charlie Boon.
More supporting names have yet to be announced. Watch this space for more details and grab tickets before it's too late, below...
Marking five years since the festival's debut this year, Lancaster's Highest Point has some pretty special plans up its sleeve.
Recently announcing 3 headline names set to wow the crowds at this year's edition, those who come by tickets for the popular family-friendly occasion can look forward to exemplary performances from chart-topping acts Anne-Marie and Bastille, as well as the iconic orchestral ensemble, The Hacienda Classical.
The fifty-strong orchestra returns to Williamson Park to open proceedings on the 5-year anniversary, after closing out the inaugural event in 2018. A fitting start to what's set to be a highlight in the festival season calendar in 2023.
Many more artists and surprises have yet to be disclosed. Keep a keen eye on the Skiddle blog for details in the coming weeks.
Ibiza party colony, ANTS has confirmed its plans to invade Motion Bristol next month, as part of a flurry of late-night raves recently announced at the favourable nightclub.
A widely respected name among both the clubbers and DJs who frequent Isla Blanca, ANTS has been serving up some of the most memorable shindigs across the dance mecca since 2013. Acts the likes of Camelphat, Pete Tong and Groove Armada, to name a few, have all teamed up with the party brand, to perform to thousands of ravers at its spiritual home, Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel.
ANTS will throw a one-off underground house and techno extravaganza at Motion over the first weekend in February, with selectors Andrea Oliva, Cloonee, Francisco Allendes and Sara Fry all on hand to ensure the soundtrack is world-class.
Undisputed titan of the UK drum n bass scene, Wilkinson heads up a very special performance at Sheffield's Foundry live music venue on Tuesday 7th March in partnership with Yorkshire party instigators, The Tuesday Club.
Mark Wilson, better known by his DJ alias, Wilkinson, has been pushing the envelope of electronic music production for the past decade. Making a name for himself back in 2012, upon winning the 'Breakthrough Producer' award at the national D&B Awards, he's since gone on to top the UK charts on a number of occasions, secure a number of festival headline slots, and sell over 3 million records worldwide.
See for yourself what makes a Wilkinson so special, as he performs live with MC AD-PT and more in Sheffield this coming spring.
World-renowned drum n bass label, Hospitality will host its first party of the new year this February, the follow-up to their last outrageous outing at Bristol's Motion back in November, in partnership with Critical Sound.
Taking things up a notch in 2023, the 6-hour-long event is set to bring a diverse flavour of bass to rave revellers, with a lineup stocked full of respected names appearing across two rooms. Expect Hospitality favourites alongside some extraordinary guests, including Camo & Krooked, Fred V, Lens, Randall and S.P.Y, representing a broad spectrum of bass sounds.
Dedicated house music fans will know all too well the cultural impact of dance label, Hooj Choons. The legendary 90s imprint, founded by Alex Simons and Red Jerry, is noted for releasing some of the biggest club tracks of the golden era of dance including Felix's 'Don't You Want Me'.
Coming to Manchester's Joshua Brooks on Saturday 28th January, the iconic label has laid out plans to take over the venue from 9 pm until 4 am the following morning. Acting on behalf of the Hooj Choons, headliners Quivver and TILT will showcase the scope of the record label's many roster talents, providing vibes all night long with support from Samuel Lamont (303,909, Cream).
Enigmatic Australian party starter, Partiboi69 brings his zany live show to Motion Bristol next month, joining an already stellar programme of events happening at the superclub in the early part of 2023.
CEO of Mutual Pleasure Records, internationally acclaimed DJ and producer, martial arts expert and social media content king, he's seemingly a man with limitless talents. With an off-kilter sense of fashion, always donning what looks to be a desktop PC headset, a penchant for ghetto house and techno, and a proven mastery of using green screens (see any of his music videos), he's also something of an internet sensation.
For a truly entertaining evening, we highly recommend catching Partiboi69's unique show at Motion this February.
