- Everything else about this year's event—date, venue, lineup—remains the same
London's Southport Weekender Festival has been renamed.
"When we did our first Southport Weekender Festival in London's Finsbury Park, we didn't have any plans in place for the full-blown Southport Weekender to return again and take place at Butlins," reads a Facebook statement. "Now that we are gearing up once again with so much anticipation for Bognor in March 2022, we feel that the time is right to change the name of the festival to something more suitable and befitting of a proper bespoke London show, and of course eliminate the obvious confusion between the two events (there's been quite a bit…!)."
Everything else about the event—Saturday, September 4th at Morden Park—remains the same, including the lineup, which will span the usual mix of legacy soul, house, funk and disco live acts and DJs. Highlights include Arrested Development, Basement Jaxx and Inner City.
The festival is subject to license and regulations. Check out the bill.
