Cocoon In The Park


So Folks, Summer is finally getting into full swing; Festivals every other week, bikini clad beach parties 24 hrs a day, all the biggest and brightest stars coming out to play with us all in the sweltering midday sun, right through the clammy midnight hours til break of dawn. It’s the days like these we all long for through the grey months and thank the heavens, the dance music Gods know it, sharing with each of us lucky worshippers the parties they dreamt of throwing before they ever made it big…

Techno Zeus, Sven Väth, has been striking forth with his electrifying DJ’ing and events for over a decade now and this year will be the 6th time his lightning will have struck the sedate surroundings of Temple Newsam country estate, in der nähe von Leeds. Backed up by a who’s who of the best techno DJ’s from around the world right now including Ricardo Villalobos and Seth Troxler, I for one will be assuming the prayer position and soaking in the wisdom weaved in beats that this line-up will no doubt provide.

Line Up: Sven Väth, Ricardo Villalobos, Seth Troxler, Enzo Siragusa, Apollonia, Annie Errez & Bobbie O’Donnell

It’s especially exciting to see the three guys from Apollonia again after they romped their Parisian soul around the Mint Club earlier this year with masterful strokes in House – I’ve no doubt these guys will dig some 4 to the floor opiates from their crates and slap a smile on all 60,000 faces!
