Building upon the  legacy left by Cocoon In The Park, one of the UK's most popular dance festivals, comes Newsam Park, a brand new, open-air, house & techno festival.

Taking place over two days, from Saturday 11th - Sunday 12th July 2020, on the idyllic parkland surrounding Leeds' historic Temple Newsam country house, the maiden Newsam Park festival - curated by German techo titan Sven Vath - will welcome a sublime selection of some of the most prestigious and sought after DJs in the business.

Recently announced Saturday headliners include papa Sven himself, Denis Sulta and Mella Dee. Also joining the Saturday line-up are Moodymann, Nightmares on Wax, Gerd Janson, Enzo Siragusa, Voigt.mas, Dan Shake, Annie Errez and Bobby O'Donnell.

On Sunday, The Garden heads down a path littered with deep digging selectors from the cutting edge. Hunee will bring music with love from the worlds of soul, funk, house, disco and techno, while Dekmantel associate Palms Trax joins the dots between many different forms of house with real dexterity.

Few push the boundaries of DJing as far as Call Super, whose bend of techno, electro and IDM will leave you in a spin. Add in a tireless record collector who plays across the spectrum in Young Marco, fast rising Bristol star Danielle and Annie Errez, and you have a wonderful day of real music. 

Sunday at The Lake is all about slick and stripped back grooves. Few do those sounds better than cult minimalists Ricardo Villalobos and Raresh, who go back to back for an epic session, as do Fuse and Desolat label heads Loco Dice and Enzo Siragusa. The trio of b2bs is completed with dub tech titans Archie Hamilton and Rossko, with mobile Berlin record store owners and masters of spaced out breaks, house and techno The Ghost rounding things out next to Bobby ODonnell
