Since launching in 2016, Junction 2 has grown into a globally recognised event with an underground cult following. Deeply rooted in club culture and ultra-consistent across operations, production, music policy and vibe, the festival puts the audience journey at the heart of the experience.
Made up of a variety of bespoke and creative spaces, the London festival has steadily scaled from one day to two, from 10,000 to 25,000 like-minded guests, elevating the scope of UK electronic music festivals to rival those of our European counterparts. No short sets or plastic tents, Junction 2 merges natural beauty, green fields, rambling rivers, woodland pathways and hidden enclaves with impeccable sound, high end production and a meticulous attention to detail. The ethos behind the scenes is as progressive as the booking policy, with a focus on improving sustainability, gender parity, welfare provisions and with active anti-discrimination policies in place.
Despite the postponement of the 2020 edition, recent months has seen Junction 2 bring the spirit of Boston Manor Park into the digital space as the UK’s first large scale underground virtual festival. Uniting party goers from around the world at a time when we couldn’t freely experience dancefloors, the event was broadcast in over 150 countries. A second edition of the virtual festival came in January 2021 with Junction 2: Connections. Featuring 20 artists and filmed across 3 iconic musical cities (Detroit, Berlin and London), the global electronic music community was brought together again inside Junction 2’s custom built space, J2v. A truly unique, one-off experience, the digital festival was watched by over 3.1million viewers.
Junction 2’s vision is focused on elevating original and pioneering artists whilst providing a safe, inclusive and welcoming space for future generations to blossom.
