Limited £10 super earlybird tickets have already sold out, but standard release tickets are on sale now. The “Warehouse” series championed by DBP and High Tide has been hugely successful over the last couple of months, with the majority of the parties being completely sold out in advance or with just a few tickets held back for the doors and with headliners ranging from Pete Tong to the Hot Crations gang. As mentioned, for this December edition, they’ve got Rudimental!

My Nu Leng have been announced as supports. The Bristol based duo have a hard-to-categorise sound, drawing on many varied influences without kowtowing to one in particular. Whilst traversing the whole spectrum between pitch shifted vocals and bass heavy rumbles, their sound is always deep and on point with the vibe.
Also on the bill is Southampton’s very own BITR8.
Here’s a quick blurb about Rudimental and some music to listen to:
Comprising songwriters and producers Piers Agget, Kesi Dryden and Amir Amor, together with DJ Locksmith, the four men draw on their eclectic musical backgrounds and sense of teamwork to keep their finger firmly on the pulse of dance music. “We aren’t just electronic bedroom producers, and we’re not just guitarists and pianists who don’t know much about making a beat,” they affirm together. They grew up on everything from grime to jazz and blues; from hip-hop to house; one of Piers’ early musical memories was of pushing Locksmith off the decks at his older sister’s birthday party to play the ’90s speed garage he loved at the time, Todd Edwards and Armand van Helden in particular. The range of influences each brings to the table only enhances their work: “We’re all quite critical,” grins Kesi. “We’ll often just take bits out of a piece of music before sending it on to the others.”
The group rose to prominence in 2012 when their single “Feel the Love”, featuring singer John Newman, topped the UK Singles Chart. The group have released further singles since, including “Not Giving In” (featuring John Newman and Alex Clare) and 2013 single “Waiting All Night” (featuring Ella Eyre) which also topped the chart in the UK. After smashing their way across the UK charts and similarly the festival circuit around the country this summer, they are stopping off here in Southampton just in time for Christmas.
Rudimental last appeared in Southampton at RoXX for an extremely energetic (and sold out) DJ set feat. live vocals.
