The Southport Disco Festival at Victoria Park

Saturday 24th July we are uber excited for the very first 'Southport Disco Festival' at Victoria Park from 3pm-10pm. Brought to you by the same team who did the socially distanced 'Secret Garden Prty' last summer, Derek Kaye will be headlining with Hot Gorilla Records bosses Conan The Selector (AKA Mark Pickup) and Andy Buchan, with support from Adam Rynhart, Paul Hollinshead & Alex Hibbard and a Live PA from Sherie performing several of her releases on Hot Gorilla Records, expect many more DJs to be announced in the coming weeks. This boutique event is limited to just several hundred people, at the time of writing this their 'early bird' tickets are nearly sold out and they only have VIP tables of 6 left, so we recommend you move fast to be guaranteed a ticket.

The event will be in plush surroundings under a heavily draped white marquee roof in the middle of Victoria Park, expect chandeliers, white carpet, a VIP area with white seating and a bad ass sound system. Food trucks will be on site providing a variety of festival food, there will be a Prosecco bottle bar, a glitter station, festival jewellery stalls etc etc


The dance floor is under a marquee with no sides, so rain or shine there will be a party! If its sunny on the day they will also remove half the roof. Limited VIP Tables left £500 for 6 people inc tickets, sofa next to the dance floor, 2 bottles of spirits & mixers, email editor@whatsonsouthport.com for more info and premium VIP drinks packages.
