UPDATED 11th June 2022:
”We are devastated to announce that due to ongoing industrial action taking place across the London Transport Network, and its potential impact on Junction 2 festival goers, Enfield Council have taken the decision to withdraw Trent Park as the venue for our event.
In light of this, we must confirm that Junction 2 Festival will no longer take place on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June 2022.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Junction 2 on 27th & 28th August at Tobacco Dock and fabric and bringing the festival back to London in summer 2023.” – Junction 2 organisers.
Read full statement here.
Organisers of London’s Junction 2 festival have just released the lineup for Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend next June, 2022. After two years off due to Corona, it’s going to be a bit special!
For those that aren’t aware, Junction 2 is held inside West London’s Boston Manor Park underneath a motorway junction – the perfect rustic setting for underground dance music and techno.
The two-day event will once again feature some of the industry’s most sought-after figures and rising stars across numerous bespoke stages – curated by techno don Adam Beyer and his team at Drumcode.
Despite being unable to host the festival in its traditional format for the past two summers, organisers used the time to expand the project in new directions.
2020 saw Boston Manor Park brought to life with J2v, the UK’s first large-scale underground virtual festival, followed in January 2021 with Junction 2: Connections – bringing together 3 iconic musical cities (Detroit, Berlin and London) under one virtual roof.
Here’s that lineup…
