April 30th and May 1st heralds a festival debut for Soundon, which unites some of the country's finest promoters to bring two days of house and dance music greatness to the South of England.

Focusing on bringing back some of the legends of the earlier days, as well as current giants, the festival will host the likes of Boy George, Miguel Campbell, David Zowie, Tania Vulcano and WSTRN on its main stage. 

There's a hefty UK Garage contingent too with Artful Dodger, Luck & Neat, Majestic and So Solid Crew appearing, whilst those looking to reclaim the glory years of rave will be keen on witnessing Slipmatt, Rat Pack, Ragga Twins, Fabio and Grooverider, with modern tech house players Robert Dietz, Hector Couto, Yaya and Neverdogs (listen to their Skiddle mix above) amongst the other highlights. Head here for the full Soundon Festival line up.
