Orange Rooms are welcoming Soundwave Festival to Southampton as the festival launches their 2014 event with parties across the UK. Now going in to its 6th year, Soundwave is a truly intimate festival with a very eclectic music policy. Curated by a small team of music lovers and based in Croatia, Soundwave provides 5 full days and nights of sun kissed music spread across a boat, a beach, a live stage by the seafront and a open air nightclub for dancing beneath the stars.

The Southampton launch party will be headlined by an all-time turntablist great, a man who has won individual titles, as well as team honours with the legendary Scratch Perverts: Mr Thing.

TICKETS VIA FATSOMA
