Looking back at Summer 2016 + What’s still to come!

WOW! It’s been a busy few months here at the On A Mission camp and things just keep getting bigger and better! Back in May we held the return of the much loved Boat Party with the Harry Shotta Show which once again saw our faithful ravers returning to the high seas of the Solent for 4 hours of non-stop madness.

This helped to ramp up the excitement for our biggest event of the year with Summer Jam taking over 2 of the coolest venues in Southampton for the Bank Holiday weekend. The day started off with the garden party at SoBar which included OAM residents Ripraw and Hannibal getting the crowds hyped in time for the mighty Shadow Demon Coalition’s headline set. We also relaunched our merchandise stand for you to stock up on the new OAM t-shirts and CD packs from previous events as well as other raving essentials.

Once the sun had gone down, the celebrations transferred to Southampton’s finest club Switch where we saw a record number of ravers through the door to enjoy the after party of the summer! The Prototypes, Dillinja and Nicky Blackmarket were just some of the acts who kept the packed club partying until the early hours.

Following the amazing news in July that we had won Best Breakthrough Promoter at the Drum and Bass Awards, we decided to say a massive THANK YOU to all our loyal supporters by putting on a night which will never be forgotten…. hosting the legendary DJ Zinc! Once again Switch was packed wall to wall from the start to enjoy a high tempo set from the energetic Sci-Fi b2b Twotone. Hannibal then took it up another level with an incredible set to get the crowd properly hyped for the one and only DJ Zinc. What followed was 90 minutes of absolute classics that had the old school ravers amongst us partying like it was 2003 again! With Benny Page, IC3 and Majistrate keeping the energy levels sky high until the last tune dropped, OAM ravers were treated to a memorable night which is up there as one of the best parties in our history.

Throughout the past 6 months our resident DJs Ripraw and Hannibal have also been busy taking the OAM vibes to other promotions and events across the country. This includes some of the biggest events and festivals of the summer such as Summer Gathering, Innovation, Soundclash and the Mutiny Festival Reunion.

Just because the summer festival season has drawn to a close, the party is still in full swing as we head towards the end of our biggest year ever. Next up is the fan favourite Camo Party on 3rd December at Switch where you can expect to see hundreds of ravers donning camo outfits for a massive night featuring SASASAS, Turno, Serum and Frankee amongst others.

Finally to count us down into 2017 we will be hosting the first ever OAM NYE event in conjunction with Switch to put on a line up which has to be seen to be believed! Headliners announced so far include Radio 1 legend Crissy Cris, Playaz badman Sub Zero and Harry Shotta with more announcements still to come. This is the ONLY place to be on New Year’s Eve….see you at the front!
