Junction 2 and Sonus Festival have teamed up with DJ Mag to offer a chance to win trips to both events this summer.
Running since 2016, LWE's Junction 2 has become one of the most talked about festivals in the capital and nationwide, winning Best Festival two years running at DJ Mag’s Best Of British awards. This year it'll be set across two days, 7th to 8th June, and will once again reside in the industrial-edged, leafy parks of Boston Manor in Brentford, London.
With a focus on large-scale production and immaculate soundsystems, Junction 2 captures the warehouse rave ethos and places it into an open-air, free-reign environment; from the industrial depths of the Hex stage (located under the M4 motorway), to the rugged natural surrounds of The Woods stage. All five areas will return this year, with Croatia’s Sonus Festival teaming up with DJ Mag to bring Loco Dice, Apollonia, tINI, Lauren Lo Sung and Gene On Earth to The Stretch stage as part of Saturday's affairs.
Other hosts include Adam Beyer's Drumcode, London institutions Phonica and Fabric, plus Amsterdam promoters VBX will be coming to London for the first time with Sonja Moonear, Nicolas Lutz, Craig Richards, San Proper and Voigtmann. Also catch sets from Amelie Lens, Ben UFO, Ricardo Villalobos, Dax J, Job Jobse and DJ Stingray across the weekend. Check out the full line-up for each stage here.
Meanwhile, back in its original habitat of Zrce Beach — located on the scenic Island of Pag in Croatia — Sonus Festival gets ready for its sixth year. In that sun-drenched setting, you can dance to the pounding beats of Sven Väth, Ben Klock, Rødhåd, Binh, Pan-Pot, Marco Carola and many more headliners as they descend across the three open-air venues: Papaya, Aquarius and Noa Beach Club.
Running from 18th to 23rd August, the event allows plenty of time to party, whether that's on land or one of the many boat parties. And the raves as always will run day to night, so expect some very special sunrise sets. With a capacity of 8,000 the festival invites like-minded party-goers from all over the globe for it's now renowned techno-heavy line-up.
If those festivals strike a chord with you, enter our competition for a chance to visit both this year. One lucky winner and a friend will be given backstage passes and accommodation to Junction 2, plus backstage passes, flights and accommodation to Sonus Festival in Croatia.
