The summer starts early at the end of this month, with some of the hottest DJs and acts in electronic music descending on leafy Hampshire in the south of England en masse for the first Somerley Tea Party, which is taking place in the beautiful and charming surroundings of the world famous Somerley Estate on Saturday 31st May.
There'll be cider and ale a-plenty as you get down to the sounds of the headline acts that include Eats Everything and Simian Mobile Disco (pictured), with support coming from top house stalwarts Paul Woolford, Ben Pearce, Bicep and OneMan. The Somerley Tea Party will also be showcasing some of the biggest names in techno and drum and bass with live performances from Ten Walls, Crissy Criss and Special Request. A veritable feast of musical delights in the countryside — what more can a chap or chapess ask for?
