Think December and you usually think about the festive season, as opposed to the festival one. However, festival season is set to make its mark upon the last month of the year, courtesy of One of These Days festival.
Instead of the ‘regret this Monday morning’ feeling… post-Christmas work night-out, One of These Days is two days of the festive season you’ll want to remember.
Making its name for being ‘a festival of festivals’, One of These Days is set to play host to 16 festivals, all within the spectacular venue of Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.
With some of the following festivals included, the Phestival office is quite rightly getting excited for December…
THE WAREHOUSE PROJECT
Since its launch in 2006, it hasn’t taken long for The Warehouse Project to gain almost ‘legendary’ status. Taking place in…well…a warehouse. The Warehouse Project has been keeping the spirit of rave, well and truly alive in the city where the dance scene was significantly shaped, that city of course being Manchester.
The series of club nights returns at the end of the year, alongside the WHP’s appearance at One of These Days.
With a talent for showcasing the finest in emerging and established talent in the UK, the Warehouse Project’s yet to be announced line up is something to quite rightly, get excited about.
Manchester-based promoters and DJ’s; Now Wave, have a penchant for picking up on and taking bands who are close to breaking, under their psychedelically-branded wing. With previous bands supported (prior to major emergence) including; ALT J, Friendly Fires, Foals, The XX and Caribou, to name just a few, it’s a proven ability.
Having recently played host to the tent, which I stayed in for the vast majority of the day at the Parklife Weekender, Now Wave will tick the new music element of One of The Days festival, off that essential-festival check list.
GLASTONBURY DANCE VILLAGE
Bourne out of the Glastonbury dance tent in 1995, the popularity of dance music saw the Glastonbury dance village established in 2005, and it’s now hard to imagine the festival without it. With Glasto taking a hiatus this year, the village moves away from the Somerset fields and takes its home at One of These Days festival.
FIBER festival is an audiovisual network festival based in Amsterdam, and whilst you it might be something that you haven’t heard of, FIBER presses all the right inquisition boxes. Combining the worlds of digital art, interactive design and electronic music, this is sure to be a treat to both eye and ear.
Other festivals taking part in One of These Days festivals, includes: Kendal Calling, Shambala, Melt, Field Day and Kendal Calling, to name just a few.
The festival’s line up is yet to be announced but as soon as it is, we’ll be sure to let you know.
Weekend tickes for One of These Day are priced at £59, more information and booking information can be found at: www.oneofthesedaysfestival.com
