After a hugely successful debut in 2019, Manchester’s Hide&Seek Festival has announced its return for 2020! Taking place on September 5th in the lavish, beautiful surroundings of Capesthorne Hall in the Cheshire countryside, the first names have now been revealed for the return of this intimate affair!
The unique setting of Capesthorne Hall overlooks three lakes, stunning formal gardens and once again promises to host a unique, breath-taking experience that simultaneously puts you at one with music and nature!
A truly first-class and carefully hand-picked selection of house, techno, disco, and minimal superstars will lead the way on the day, with the unstoppable French trio Apollonia lining up next to underground heroes like Sonja Moonear and Raresh, who have stripped-back styles that are sure to take you on a heady, rhythmic trip. Frenchman Jeremy Underground will bring his bottomless record bag for everything from rare soul and funk to finest deep house!
Then come Dutch house duo Detroit Swindle; fearsome duos such as VOIGT.MAS (Voigtmann & John Dimas), Spokenn (Ferro & Reiss) and Ingi Visions (Samuel Deep & Julian Alexander). There is more from cult American groove maker Gene on Earth, fast-rising Frenchman Sweely with his unique live set, Leeds legend and Back to Basics resident Tristan da Cunha and a special guest yet to be announced! Add to this emerging selectors who have broken onto the scene in style, of whom are at the forefront of a new generation of talent; You&Me frontman Josh Baker, scouse duo UZU from MODU:LAR, Real Gang head honcho and Slapfunk resident Miller & Beeyou records bossman / Infuse resident Laidlaw, all bringing their new wave sounds to the festivities!
The organisers behind Hide&Seek have promised they’ll maintain the close-knit family feeling which made for one of the stand-out moments of last years, keeping numbers consistent and comfortable with a limited capacity. As ever, only the highest standard sound system will be in effect whilst production and stage concepts will be stepped up another gear!
Early bird tickets are available here but be quick, we anticipate these selling in double quick time and you really wouldn’t want to miss out on one of the standout events of 2020, would you…..?!
