THE BRIDGE

The Bridge is our piece de resistance. As the M4 motorway roars unknowingly above, below, on an island surrounded by water on either side, raucous scenes unfold. Dust is kicked-up, feet stomp and sound levels can peak way beyond the usual limitations for a UK-based festival. You even have to access the insular via a floating walkway.

The bridge is symbolic in more ways than one. It bridges nature and humanity – the defining feature of Boston Manor Park – the contrast of harsh concrete against lush greenery. It bridges house and techno – the two pillar genres that connect electronic music – one from Chicago, one from Detroit – two cities themselves divided by a body of water. And, even in the literal sense, it makes a connection, joining one place to another. The city to the countryside. Two nations to one another. People to people. And often navigating peril. A junction is defined as an intersection of two or more converging points. And thusly, Junction 2 is named.
