Socialising, festival style
Coming hot off the heels of The Social Festival is The Winter Social. Brrrrrr, chilly. Yes, it may be the cold season, but this is hot stuff (that was an odd sentence) in Maidstone, Kent. Its parent festival is widely regarded as the dance world's way of closing the summer, and has been put together by Saved Records, whose owner you may well know by the name Nic Fanciulli. If you know him just as Nic, you're very lucky, because it probably means you're besties. If not, you'll have to attend and try to become besties with him.
Huge DJs will descend on Kent (some literally by parachute)* for one day of raving at the Kent County Showground, bringing a touch of Balearic hardcore fun to the South-East of England. Big time.
If you're trying to be social, make eye contact, but don't be too handsy. It's off-putting.
