Junk Department Big Top (Jamie Jones, Maya Jane Coles, Dyed Soundorom, Laura Jones, Detroit Swindle)
03.May.14 @ 11:00 - 23:00
Junk Department will be hosting a 5000 capacity all-day event inside a circus-style big top set in the grounds of Stoneham Park in May this year. Headliners Jamie Jones, Maya Jane Coles, Dyed Soundorom, Laura Jones, and Detroit Swindle will be supported by Junk Department residents and friends. As if that wasn’t enough, this one-day festival will also be followed by three after-parties featuring Ben Pearce, Darius Syrossian, Shonky, and more. Additionally, both Future Garden and Concrete Music will be running tents alongside the Big Top with headliners Max Graef and Karma Kid respectively. Tickets are now ~£30 which, to be frank, is still an absolute bargain.
TICKETS VIA JUNK DEPARTMENT
Junk Department was Junk’s external events brand but it has now grown into its own entity (especially so now that the club itself has been rebranded). Over the last couple of years they’ve hosted a number of warehouse parties across London and festival stages across the UK and the wider world. Now, they’re running their own one-day music festival in the realms of home-town Southampton with the main stage inside a big top, with bars and food outlets scattered throughout, and a fun fair outside for extra thrills. The main arena and bars will all be covered so partying can happen whatever the weather.
Stoneham Park (SO50 9HT) is just North of Southampton on the outskirts of Eastleigh, not too far from Southampton Airport Parkway station or indeed central Eastleigh itself. There will be no on-site parking and the official advice is to use public transport to get to Southampton Airport Parkway train station where there will be a clearly lit, signposted and supervised route to the venue. Note: Bringing your own food/drink is not permitted.
