Introducing Cuckoo Clump! This is the thick of it – the hotbed of the party – with a host of our favourite stages including Reggae Roots, Club DaDa, and brand new soul, funk and disco club Stacey’s. And off-the-wall-delights such as The World’s Largest Disco Ball, the JägerHaus and the Sunday Best Record Shop.
The Reggae Roots stage is dedicated to the myriad flavours of reggae, from ska, rock steady and ragga to dub, dancehall and junglist riddims. Located on its own sandy beach in the Cuckoo Clump and bathed in righteous vibrations, awaken your inner lion, as a cast of cool operators make sweet selections without objection. From high energy rockers, to waist-winding crowd pleasers, there are no heavy manners; Reggae Roots is irie ground.
Welcome to a surreal world of Club DaDa where the absurd is commonplace and eccentricity is elevated to an art form. Prepare for a disorienting salmagundi of sound, the mechanised swing of vintage remix and brass, brass, brass. Irresistibly avant-garde and unhinged, Club DaDa, from the makers of Shangri Las, Glastonbury, and long term residents of festival fields Continental Drifts will send you spinning into the 23rd Century.
At Stacey’s it’s not just about the looks, it’s about the lifestyle. It’s about the joyous funk, and the rare groove and it’s about the dancing. The non-stop dancing, lost in the soul and the pure pursuit of happiness. The ultimate good time clubbing experience, if dancing to northern soul, funk and rare groove is what you want to do, Stacey’s is for you.
Prepare to be amazed! Back by popular demand, the gleaming beauty that is our world record breaking Disco Ball will take pride of place of place in Cuckoo Clump.
