With 100 days to go until Junction 2 2018, the full stage split for this year’s festival can now be revealed…
Offering five unique and vastly contrasting arenas, Junction 2’s breezy, meadow stage features a complex geometric truss structure providing a 1,500sqm canopy and hosts a technically heavy production with an intense atmosphere. Presented by SONUS, the The Hex will play host to some of techno’s finest, with Nina Kraviz, Tale of Us, Maya Jane Coles and Mind Against.
Located under the belly of the M4 Flyover, starkly industrial arena, The Bridge, will once again be hosted by DRUMCODE. An epic clash of the titans will see DRUMCODE head honcho Adam Beyer go back-to-back with Carl Cox as well as playing individual sets. Italian sound design artist and DRUMCODE cohort Enrico Sangiuliano and Watergate’s La Fleur, will also perform in the unique surroundings.
SIDEXSIDE will host Junction 2’s third largest stage, The Pavilion. A covered arena, The Pavilion offers festival-goers the chance to get up close and personal with access the stage itself. Presenting an unmissable Innervisions showcase, Dixon and Âme will go back-to-back for six hours straight, with label mates Marcus Worgell and Trikk completing the lineup.
As one of the festivals most distinctive stages, The Warehouse is custom-designed to recreate the feel of a warehouse rave. The dark and intimate space will showcase some of the most forward-thinking sounds on offer with Len Faki, Scuba presents SCB, LWE residents Dense & Pika and Jay Clark providing the soundtrack.
Getting back to nature, Oasis Festival host leafy stage, The Woods. Joy Orbison will headline the lush, green woodland space which will also feature and extended back-to-back set from Sonja Moonear and Nicolas Lutz. LWE resident William Djoko completing the lineup.
For 2018, Junction 2 have put a firm focus on the music, making space for artists to indulge in extended sets and enjoy the freedom to showcase their full range of sounds. In addition, festival organisers, LWE, go to pain-staking lengths to provide stand-out sound and production, as well as carefully selected food and drink vendors, at London’s most diverse day-festival location.
