Mint Festival have announced that Loco Dice and Enzo Siragusa will play a UK exclusive back to back at this year’s event on September 28th.
The venue is the vast RAF Church Fenton site, specifically Area 51, which towers above and around you and will become a perfect rave cauldron on the day. Expect a giant sound system, laser show, visuals and the sort of intense atmosphere that makes the music that much more immersive.
Seth Troxler, Apollonia + FUSE crew Archie Hamilton, Rossko, Seb Zito, Rich Nxt as well as System residents Annie Errez and Bobby O’Donnell also play the same arena.
Desolat boss Loco Dice favours big, chunky, rolling grooves with hip hop drums and techno dynamism. He has put out countless EPs and LPs that have made him one of the biggest names around the world. Enzo, meanwhile, has made his FUSE label and party into a cult affair with a hardcore following who love its stripped back, dubbed out and tech tinged sound. He is a real tastemaker with a slick, well defined style that never fails to get people dancing.
Mint Festival final tickets are available from www.mintfestival.co.uk.
This year Lovefest offered possibly the world’s largest pool party and the world’s smallest festival stage.
ON top of that were four other vast stages, thousands of happy and welcoming people, a great selection of local DJs, and a beautiful spot in Vrnjacka Banja, Serbia for it all to play out in.
We were there with our camera and here are 10 photos that should send your fomo levels off the chart.
