This August 2021, the 51st State festival is returning to the UK capital for their 6th edition.
This Saturday, 7th of August, over 100 artists will be performing in the north of London to celebrate house music in the 51st State Festival. More than 10 hours of nonstop music and an extensive and natural location: Trent Park, an English country house. Artists will be performing in 7 different stages and the line-up includes names like DJ Lust & Steve Wayback, Anane Vega, Miss Ray, or Mark Radford.
Doors will open at 11 am and the festival closure is planned for 10 pm, but for those who want to keep the party going, the 51st State after-party will take over the legendary Ministry of Sound club from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. Several artists including Todd Terry, Matt Jam Lamont or Godfathers of Garage will be there!
Beatport will be following the festival live on Twitch, Facebook and on their Youtube channel from 1,30pm. Chronologically we will be able to watch online: House N HD, Mike Dunn, Ellie Cocks, Bontan, Dave Lee, Vintage House & Garage Set, House Gospel Choir, Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry, Hannah Wants, Jocelyn Brown and Mark Knight.
The 51st State Festival is a house music festival that started in 2015 with originally 6 stages. Their motto is to celebrate the roots of house music, pulling together the threads of this hugely influential sound, classic house, tech house, afro house; and exploring garage, disco, soul, dub, dancehall and more genres. The organisation has been curating a line-up that includes artists from Chicago, New York, Detroit, London and beyond. Every edition brings new artists and different experiences for the fans.
In addition to the music, the festival also has an increased selection of street-food outlets and bars, plus improved production values.
The standard price started at £55, the VIP entrance cost £80 but includes a lounging area and great views and also access to the VIP stage where Steve Maca, John Morales or Mark Radford, among others, will be performing.
People could not wait for this event to happen, so on the 5th of July, all tickets were already sold out. Covid postponed it last year and with the return of UK nightlife, this festival couldn’t be left out.
