Looking back at the Playaz BBQ 2017

Well, that was certainly a fun Bank Holiday party! We recently hosted Playaz BBQ across 2 of Southampton’s finest venues which definitely felt like the perfect way to start the festival season!

We kicked off proceedings with our biggest ever garden party at SoBar which included local talent Patient & Vertigo, DFR Showcase and Sci-Fi. Sour Buds were hosting Room 2 and kept the vibes going throughout the day with a wicked atmosphere.

The sell-out crowd of loyal ravers were loving life right from the 3pm kick-off and by the time Klip & Outlaw got on the decks, the party was in full swing. Benny Page was up next and absolutely smashed it with his trademark style of jungle, jump up and ragga drum and bass, supported on the mic by the legend IC3. Finally Hazard and Skibadee closed out the first part of the night to a packed venue before the crowd moved onto Engine Rooms to carry on the party.

Here the tempo was turned up a notch by the likes of Agro, Taxman, Hype and Annix, all of which represented the Playaz label to the max by treating the ever hungry crowd to all of the latest jump up hits. Finally the night was closed out by Hannibal who rejuvenated anyone in the crowd who might be flagging by putting on an amazing fast-paced set of drum and bass classics mixed with upfront dancefloor and jump up – if you haven’t already then check out the re-record here.

Next up you can catch us hosting the drum and bass stage at the mighty Mutiny Festival on Sunday 28th May with the likes of Roni Size, Friction and our very own Ripraw and Hannibal. However if you missed out on Playaz or simply couldn’t get enough of the garden party, make sure you get your tickets sorted early for the legendary Summer Jam Festival! The absolutely massive line-up includes Marky, Hazard and SASASAS to name just a few. Check out the full billing and book your tickets early as this is sure to be another sell-out!
