This Sunday, September 14th sees United Festival take place at London's Finsbury Park for a full day celebration of rave culture from the past 25 years.
With 125 acts set to take over seven arenas, United does just as its names suggests, and brings together the finest sounds in drum n bass, old skool, jungle, house, UK garage, trance, hard dance, acid techno, psy trance and more.
Taking over the main stage will be a wealth of live acts, with Angie Brown, Baby D (above), Koven, Kele Le Roc and plenty more supplying the crowd with some of their well known classics, backed up by DJ sets from the likes of Danny Byrd, DJ Hype, Lisa Lashes and Artful Dodger, as well as an unmissable appearance from the mighty Fabio and Grooverider, who go back to back for a special 25 years set.
Drum n bass is taken care of again in the One Nation Arena, starring Hazard and Eksman, Shadow Demon Coalition, and Mampi Swift (listen to his Kiss FM mix below) amongst more. Those that prefer their jungle strictly old skool will no doubt be itching to check out the Moondance Arena, with DJ Rap, Peter Bouncer, Slipmatt and Kenny Ken amongst the dons supplying the beats.
The Analog Arena welcomes some of the biggest names in modern house music, with Waifs & Strays, Alex Arnout, Dale Howard and more plying festival goers with some of their fresh, grooving sounds. Those with a penchant for classic UK garage will be all over the Garage Nation Arena, with the sounds of Pied Piper, Matt Jam Lamont, Sparks and Kie, Jason Kaye and Mike Delinquent.
Moving away from the bass, we get thrown into the Frantic arena, which every bit as action packed as it sounds. Expect to witness some no nonsense trance from The Thrillseekers (see him in action above), classic hard house from BK and Andy Farley, HARDL!VE presented by Andy Whitby, some serious acid techno from Mark EG.
And last but by no means least, those in the VIP arena will be treated to a barrage of old skool house and club classics thanks to Huck Finn, Rob Blake, Squirrel and loads more. Grab your United tickets here.
