Mint Festival has been flying the legacy flag ever since Mint Club closed earlier this year. The most essential festival in the North of England is returning to the site of one of its greatest ever editions in 2019. This year’s Mint Festival again takes place at RAF Church Fenton at Leeds East Airport. It promises the same out-of-this world stage design and huge line up featuring the likes of Patrick Topping, Gorgon City, Enzo Siragusa, Claptone and Richy Ahmed.
Stage hosts are the new festival trend and I am not complaining. Mint Festival is welcoming world renowned party starters Elrow and cult underground crew FUSE to host their own arenas. It all takes place on Saturday 28th September, with tickets on sale now. There is even a group deal happening right now for buy 5 get 1 free.
All musical bases are covered at Mint, from house to garage, even techno to disco. All music will be performed on hugely impressive stages and with immersive production that takes you into the next dimension. That will never be more true than on the new Elrow stage.
If you haven’t been to an Elrow party yet, expect to be blown away with their production and connection with the crowd. The globe-trotting production powerhouse bring a carnival atmosphere and plenty of crazy colors and themes to everything they do, and this will be no different. Joining the stage is headliner MK and two special guests and more to be announced.
Last year, The Bunker was a huge talking point and has already become an iconic place to dance. It is a raw, throwback space made from huge steel shipping containers that echo the illegal rave days of the nineties. A killer sound system delivers the music as intended and place you right in the center of an atmospheric cauldron that you will never forget. That music comes from Mint favorites Patrick Topping, Richy Ahmed, Darius Syrossian and more, so you know what to expect.
Equally as unforgettable is Area 51, a vast aircraft hangar that was built to house fighter jets. It is one of the largest single structures in the country. For Mint Festival, it will welcome 5000 of you to bask in the glory of its sheer size and imposing nature. Of course, it will be kitted out with high tech lights, lasers and visuals. As well as pyrotechnics worthy of the fighter jets normally found there. Get ready to have your senses stimulated in ways you never knew possible.
Hosting Area 51 will be FUSE, the now internationally recognized brand that is home to the slickest stripped back dub tech artists in the world. Key protagonists like founder Enzo Siragusa and label artists Rich Nxt, Rossko, Seb Zito and Archie Hamilton will be joined by a huge special guest. In addition, Apollonia and Seth Troxler will join for a truly tasteful underground session.
Terminal by Night
Finally, Terminal by Night will be a place to catch the freshest house. Expect chart toppers Gorgon City, mystery man Claptone and Defected’s Sam Divine.
For those of you who like to live the high life, there will be a luxury VIP terrace and exclusive enclosed area. Furthermore, it will include its own street food, innovative cocktails, glitter stalls, posh loos and a classy chill out area that all overlooks the four main arenas and offers the best possible way to experience Mint Festival.
