Festival Guide: Junction 2

Summer is coming and Junction 2 is the perfect start to the season ...

Listen, we both know you are going to have a blow out to celebrate the start of summer. Junction 2 is the ideal Electronic festival to get you started, so get your mates and get in the mood because you are partying at Junction 2. No ifs, no buts, no coconuts.

What’s Junction 2 then?

Junction 2 is an Electronic music festival held in Boston Manor Park on the 9th of June. The all-singing, all-dancing, all-raving, all-vibing all-dayer returns for its third year. The first two years were such a roaring success that the festival had to return for Junction 2 … well …3!

We were at Junction 2 2016 and had an amazing time, check out our review here. The most impressive part about the inaugural Junction 2 was the sound quality at all the stages and the organisation in general. For the first ever year they absolutely smashed it. We had to go back for seconds last year, you can see how we got on in the video below.

Year three has a lot to live up to but we have a feeling it’ll be even better this time around. Keeping the focus on quality music, the all-day dancefloor homage offers a vast spectrum of sonic textures across five bespoke stages. LWE welcomed SONUS and two new stages last year which went down a treat.

They joined Drumcode – the staple of Junction 2 and masters of facilitating a perfect party atmosphere. They have it down to a fine art now.

Where’s it happening?

In what could be the most striking festival site in the UK: Boston Manor Park. The park has a few predictable features like lots of open green space, woodlands, a river and oh yeah… it’s located directly under the M4 motorway. Beneath the road surrounded by massive concrete support structures, there will be an incredibly unique stage with outrageously good sound bouncing beautifully all the way back to the site’s entrance. It’s bananas and needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

The entire site is an industrial utopia for the day, there’s chill out zones, ample bars and food stalls, woodland passages and clever stage activation all over. There are no VIPs and everyone has the opportunity to get up close and personal with the DJs with a one-in-one-out boiler room buzz at some stages.
