51st Festival 2022

51st Festival 2022

SATURDAY, 20 AUGUST 2022

Copthall Playing Fields, London, NW4 1PS.

Following the success of the sold-out 2021 edition, we are super-excited to announce 51st Festival returns bigger and better for 2022!

51st will open the gates to its new home at Copthall Playing Fields. 20 minutes more central than the previous site, the new location is easily accessible by tube (Mill Hill East on the Northern Line), train (Mill Hill Broadway, 17 minutes from King’s Cross St Pancras), bus (Copthall Sports Centre) and by car with plenty of parking available.

With plenty of surprises to come, 51st new site will elevate the festival to new heights and provide its best party yet across seven stages.

51st Festival will once again celebrate the roots of House music, pulling together the threads of this hugely influential sound, exploring classic house, tech house, afro house, garage, disco, soul, dancehall, amapiano, drum & bass and more.

Your favourite pioneers from Chicago, New York, Detroit, London and beyond will be joined by the trailblazers of today. The 51st Festival program is truly transatlantic, joining the dots between the US, the UK, Europe and the Caribbean.

We also have made some great additions to the site including new stage hosts: Drum & Bass pioneering label, Metalheadz, Tech House party starters La Fiesta and London Soul heavyweights, Soul Network.

We have listened to your feedback and will not use RFID wristbands for payments. To reduce queuing times we will be having 90% of the bars as contactless and chip and pin payments, there will be one cash bar in the general admission area. The food caterers and stalls will accept cash and card / contactless.

We are excited to announce the stage split lineup celebrating the roots of House music exploring Soulful, Classic, Tech, Afro, Garage, Disco, Soul, RnB, Dancehall, Soca, Amapiano, Drum & Bass and more!

Jago

Jago

grew up in Camden, so it’s safe to say that there is not much this boy has not seen. He is hard to shock yet easy to please, armed with an eclectic taste in music and film. Jago is always ready to tackle anything from Punk Rock, D & B, House to Opera. This makes him a great person to send out into the thick of things. He has a passion for cinematography and fine dining and constantly tries to mix the two. If he is not dancing, eating or watching a movie then he is probably working his way through a bottle of champagne with the local talent. HE NEVER SLEEPS!
