Junction 2 isn’t just the UK’s premier techno festival, but since adding official After Hours to both legs on its new 2-dayer, it’s also the only festival in London where you can party around the clock. As if adding house music centric Fridays to 2019’s edition, the organisers have again expanded with this latest news. It means that even after the last kick drum has rung out under The Bridge, we continue into the night…
Seeing as this is fabric’s XX anniversary and they host a stage, it only makes sense that there is our destination of choice. Friday’s after party will reflect the diversity of the day’s program. Revered crate-diggers, covering a multitude of electronic styles. Daphni, Hunee, Job Jobse, Fort Romeau, Batu and re:ni all offer something different and ensure that attendees could hear a completely different cross section of music, compared to the main event. Saturday’s line-up is equally as salivating, but in line with the festival program, will appeal to fans of darker, tougher music.
Fresh off the back of his B2B with Tale Of Us on the J2 Main Stage, Maceo Plex finds a new sparring partner when arriving in Farringdon. Rekindling their rave-review B2B from Resistance, Ultra Miami, Plex goes toe-to-toe with J2 ambassador Adam Beyer. Who can tell what kind of journey these two greats of the scene will take us on, when bouncing off one another? Apollonia add yet more firepower still, whilst Dax J returns to EC1 with his breakneck style accompanied by fabric resident Jay Clarke. This is a thoroughbred techno assault, that does the daytime action more than enough justice as the official carry-on. Will you still be standing come lights-up on Sunday morning? Only the true techno warriors will remain.
Raise your hand anyone attempting to go straight through?
Tickets for both parties - including early entry options - are on sale now. With Saturday now sold out and Friday not far behind, this provides another opportunity to be a part of Junction 2’s landmark fourth year.
