Midlands newcomers reveal an impressive Halloween line-up

After the roaring success of their Spring Festival in March, Outbreak returns to the Ricoh Arena in Coventry for two days of unadulterated partying.

With six stages spread over three levels and a whole host of official after-parties, Friday 31st October and Saturday 1st November are set to hold an exciting and monstrous after-summer gathering.

The first phase of announced artists reveals Gorgon City (pictured), Hannah Wants, David Rodigan, Phaeleh, Kidnap Kid, Predetah and Artful Dodger to be amongst those heading up the Friday night, with fresh legends Nina Kraviz, Route 94, Lee Foss, Darius Syrossian, Paul Woolford, Matthias Tanzmann and SecondCity providing a more underground feel for Saturday night.

Gorgon City have a new single coming on Black Butter in advance of this show, 'Unmissable' — an indication of what Matt and Kye's DJ shows are becoming. Hear it here:


This admirable line-up suggests that Outbreak is certainly going to be one of the highlights of the autumn calendar, especially for the masses of students and eager clubbers gathered around the area.

With a bright future and clearly some promotional savvy, Outbreak is set to be a shining fixture for the Midlands dance scene.
