For those that were there the first day of January 2014 was certainly a day to remember. One year later on January 1st 2015 Day One Festival will return to Birmingham bigger and better than ever before.
Day One 2015 will see an entire street closed, a car park converted and two warehouses transformed into a sensory, stimulating world unknown, with no expense spared; incredible production, lights, lasers, and killer sound.
The birth of the new year sets the benchmark for 2015 with headline performances from some of the most influential artists around. These include New York, pioneering dub house master MK, Circoloco - DC10 residents and tech house titans Davide Squillace and Matthias Tanzmann, who is also boss of seminal label Moon Harbour. UK garage house sensation and Aus album artist Huxley, plus minimal DC10 man DeWalta, Sankeys Ibiza regular Samu.l and Fuse’s Seb Zito & Rossko - also named as a Mixmag breakout DJ from Ibiza this summer. As well as the hotter than hot Leftwing & Kody, Lauren Lo Sung, rising Dirtybird artists Cause & Affect and more still tbc.
For the select few thousand people who attended Day One Festival in 2014, their year got off to a magical and memorable start. This year Day One is evolving, promising many surprises as well as musical delights, so get your ticket sooner rather than later because, just like last year, they will sell out.
