Pioneering dance DJ Judge Jules is set to headline the inaugural Jurassic Dance Festival taking place in at Wilkswood Farm in Swanage over the weekend of 18th to 20th August 2023.
Presenting a nostalgic trip back in time, the festival will host three days of classic dance vibes plus three night's camping in a relaxed setting right on Dorset's Jurassic Coast. This family-friendly festival will invite mums and dads to revisit the club sounds of their youth in a safe, relaxed and welcoming setting in the heart of the Purbeck countryside.
Each day will see a different dance genre represented, featuring some of the best DJs and producers in their respective fields:
It's time to get tribal on Friday August 18th with a Dubstep Takeover presented by Stimulus and featuring sets by Youngsta, J:Kenzo, N-Type, Sukh Knight, Trends & Boylan and many more.
Put your hands in the air on Saturday August 19th as the mighty Judge Jules headlines the Xtra Hot Ibiza House Session. He will be joined by, amongst others, Dr Packer (Glitterbox), Andrew Galea (Soil Brothers) and Ridney & Doctor Feelgood (Mambo b2b Ibiza).
Root out your old bucket hats and whistles on Sunday August 20th for a proper Old Skool Rave presented by Return of the Vibe and featuring Ratpack, Slipmatt, Brockie, DJ Vibes, Aquasky and over a dozen more.
The Jurassic Dance Festival is brought to you by Hard Way Promotions, the same team behind the Wilkswood Reggae Festival, now in its eighth year and held in the same location. With capacity limited to 1,000, the festival will aim to be a more relaxed, calmer environment than other larger events, aiming to encourage ex-clubbing parents to bring their kids to see how they did things in the old days. With a kid's zone and lots of activities for children over the course of the weekend, including DJ and dance workshops, mum and dad should be free to let their hair down like they did back in the day.
The main arena and bar are under-cover so the music can continue whatever the weather. There is ample camping across the site so there's plenty of space for everyone. Campervans and small caravans are welcome in the campervan field and there is a designated field close to the arena for disabled ticket holders. There will be bars and streetfood stalls catering for all tastes and persuasions as well as merchandise stalls selling clothing, sunglasses, hats and the odd smiley badge or two.
Adult weekend tickets are priced at just £99 and include full access to the main dance arena from Friday to Sunday, three night's camping and free parking for the weekend. Under 18s are £49 and under 3s are free. A Family Weekend Bundle (two Adult & two Youth tickets) is available for £249. Campervans, mobile homes and small caravans are welcome in our campervan field for an extra £39 for the weekend.
