Chris Coco

DJ, producer, writer, broadcaster, self confessed music junkie and general legend, Bestival are pleased to welcome back one of the founding fathers of UK dance music Chris Coco.

From the heady days of the acid house explosion in the late eighties, Chris has been instrumental in moving things forward both musically and culturally, from his productions as Coco, Steel and Lovebomb to his incredible clubnights at the Zap in Brighton Chris was at ground zero of the dance music revolution.

The early nineties saw Chris take the reins as editor of seminal dance music bible DJ Magazine and saw Chris Coco the DJ find himself an altogether more chilled, experimental perspective on the tunes he played, staying true to his original Balearic vision to become one of the worlds most celebrated DJs and producers.

In 2002 Chris created The Blue Room for Radio One along with some fella called Rob Da Bank a two hour exploration into the deepest, experimental depths of music from around the globe, the show ran for 4 glorious years and earned him worldwide acknowledgement from all corners of the musical spectrum.

As well as DJing and producing, Chris has somehow also found time to form his own band City Reverb who released their debut album in February this year, while Chris continues to be the busiest man in dance music, DJing around the world to like minded party people of the extremely happy persuasion.
