Soul Function

Scottish Soul Weekender expands for second edition

Conjured and curated by ex-DJ Mag contributor Yogi Haughton, SSW made its mark on the northern festival circuit last year. Stepping into the gap left by Southport Weekender's departure to Butlins Minehead, it witnessed a hidden hotel in Dumfries rise to become the new stomping ground for a family of party animals with a soulful flavour.

Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th November, the party returns, again with a plethora of DJ legends such as Tony Humphries, Paul 'Trouble' Anderson, DJ Spen, Rahaan and Greg Wilson over four rooms. Adding to that, with a new Blue Room to be unveiled, newer forms of house and disco will be represented more emphatically this year, with appearances from Prins Thomas, Motor City Drum Ensemble and Moodymanc poised to deliver something fresh, inspired by the original movements.
