Construction of Junk Department’s Big Top Gets Underway


Junk Department’s Big Top festival is just three days away so construction of the site has now begun (see picture above). Set in the grounds of Stoneham Park on the outskirts of Southampton, the main arena (a circus-style big top) will be headlined by Jamie Jones, Maya Jane Coles, Detroit Swindle, and many more.

In addition to the big top, there will be two dance tents. One hosted by Future Garden and the other by Concrete Music. There will also be a VIP area with music curated by High Tide.

Tickets for the one-day festival are running low. Capacity is expected to be approaching a whopping 5000 people.

The festival kicks off at 11am and will run through till 11pm. At which point, three separate after-parties will be kicking off across the city at TRiPP, The Warehouse, and Voodoo Lounge.
