While most of us are still working out which party to see the new year in, Hospitality have shot past the 2017 starting line and given us yet another reason to accelerate into the very-near future… Hospitality In The Dock.
The sequel to the epic blockbuster that was Hospitality In The Park – the brand’s highly successful debut full festival and the UK’s largest D&B outdoor festival to date – Hospitality In The Dock takes place in London’s Tobacco Dock on Good Friday, April 14 and they’ve just announced the full line-up.
With labels and promoters such as Exit, Eatbrain, The Blast, Jungle Jam & We Love Jungle on hand for arena duties, Hospitality In The Dock continues the full-spectrum broad smorgasbord celebration of everything that’s exciting about the genre right now… And ever has been, thanks to its strong jungle and OG representation.
Utilising Tobacco Dock’s blank-canvas space – that’s only been tapped into by other realms of electronic and alternative music such AMP, LEAF and Bonobo’s Outlier – the event has potential to be another unique hallmark rave for Hospitality and will be their largest indoor event so far.
“Hospitality In The Park was a massive leap of faith for us,” states Hospitality events manager who answers to Joshpitality. “We knew we could do 4500 tickets in London but it took a lot of panic, nail-biting and organisation building the site, we’d never of guessed that 10,000 people would come with us on such a big project, but it worked and the day was amazing. Tobacco Dock is the biggest indoor show we have ever done. Working in a grade 1 listed building that doesn’t have a single light or speaker has a fresh exciting set of challenges and gives us another opportunity to create something really unique. Bring it on!”
