Forbidden Forest confirm MK, Camelphat, Darius syrossian, Route 94 + moreFestival | 03.07.2018
Created by a team of rave enthusiasts with a desire to challenge convention within today’s festival and club circuit, Forbidden Forest has announced their closing 2018 show, on Saturday 8th September. The boutique day party returns fresh from May’s event; a spectacular opening to the festival season; and will play host to an impressive selection of acts, including GRAMMY nominated ‘Cola’ producers CamelPhat and Detroit house maestro MK. Featuring a range of representation from the dance music spectrum across house, techno and bass, September’s event rounds off another incredible summer, and on this occasion, moves to a brand-new Leicestershire forest, following the success of the May party in Donington Park.
Packed with an eclectic line-up for the September edition, Ibiza regular Lauren Lane will play The Rift alongside special guest Darius Syrossian, with MK’s Area 10 brand taking over The Reactor, with KC Lights, Latmun, Eli Brown, Will Clarke, Huxley, Shadow Child, and many more. Over at The Abbey, Holy Goof and Darkzy join the star-studded artist list, which also includes a special b2b performance from My Nu Leng and Redlight. The Drum & Bass sounds of SASASAS and DJ Hype will represent The Manor, whilst The Express, a new edition to the forest, will play host to a wealth of names which includes Hector Couto, Deniz Cruz & Route 94.
With previous editions successfully selling out, Forbidden Forest runs for a solid 11 hours and has quickly made its mark as an inclusive party with a distinct DIY attitude that’s reminiscent of the UK house scene from decades before. An intimate, creative and enchanting addition to the summer calendar, the surrounding areas of Nottingham, Leicester, Sheffield, Manchester, Derby, Birmingham and Liverpool are easily accessible via train, bus and coach, while the festival is a short train journey from London.
Tickets for the September edition are on Final Release, with Forbidden Forest’s rapidly growing reputation cementing its place as one of the UK’s most eagerly anticipated events.
