After many months of planning, The Social Festival 2016 have assembled a World-Class line-up of techno and house heavyweights. The Festival’s full line-up is here and it’s set to provide an incredible soundtrack to what will be a perfect end to the summer…and You can be a part of it!

Big Green Coach will take you to the event, direct from Newcastle, and home again when the festival ends.


Friday will see the highly anticipated return of house music pioneers Sasha and John Digweed, who will headline the event with a UK festival exclusive B2B set!

Another debutant at this year’s event will be German superstar Paul Kalkbrenner, who will be showing us what he can do in The Barn Arena.

Joining these incredible artists are Used & Abused boss Loco Dice, Edible head honcho Everything, Andrew Weatherall, Paranoid London Live, Nastia, Guy Gerber and many more.


We start with a techno legend that needs no introduction. Carl Cox will be returning to The Social Festival for the first time since 2014, where he will be teaming up yet again with Social boss and friend Nic Fanciulli.

We also welcome King Solomun back to The Social, who will be playing B2B with close friends and Diynamic residents Adriatique.

New comers Pan-Pot, Joseph Capriati, Agoria, Bicep and Mind Against will also be performing this year, along with Patrick Topping, Richy Ahmed, Hot Since 82, Dubfire, George Fitzgerald plus much more!

As The Social expands, we are excited to announce a new arena and new genre to the festival, that will see the likes of Roni Size & Krust present Full Cycle with MC Dynamite, High Contrast & Goldie holding down the Bamboo Village on the Saturday.

The Social also sees the introduction of a very unique and boutique camping area, allowing fans from around the world to experience the weekend to the fullest.
