Friday Night in the Main Marquee - 'Friends, Romans, Countrymen - Lend Me Your Ears' Dance/House Night
this year's VW Action we have two great House/Dance
acts to play on the Friday night - DJs WreckDown and Craig 'Cut Up' Jones along with The Narni Shakers. Both with eclectic and crowd-pleasing sets, ranging from Old Skool House to cutting edge 'Mash-Ups'. DJ Wreckdown first picked up his headphones and took to the decks at the tender age of 12. From then to now he has gone through a rollercoaster of a journey - starting on traditional analogue DJ sets, learning the old school style, through to new technology and music styles to create his unique style of DJ'ing. Now after 10 years in the industry he has already had guest mixes on national radio stations such at BBC's Radio 1Xtra and Kiss FM as well as holding weekly shows on In2Beats FM (Bedford) and Reprezent FM (London). He has also played and held residencies at top clubs like Ministry of Sound and PRYZM.
VW Action favourite and UK BPM Freestyle Champion Craig 'Cut Up' Jones returns. Renowned and respected for his highly technical live mash up shows, meticulously crafted DJ sets and party punching productions, Craig is in a league of his own. His style has evolved over many years into its own unique signature sound taking inspiration from all genres with the mantra of 'Good music does not have an expiration date'. In a world where standing out has become increasingly difficult, 'Cut Up' carved his path by developing his shows - injecting his own formula of live remixing, scratching and fully immersive live video edits to create a unique blend.-
not to be missed. Main Stage/Marquee, Friday Night.
Saturday Night in the Main Marquee
VW Action 'Roman Toga Party' Theme Night
For years now one of the most anticipated elements
of VW Action has been the Saturday night 'theme party'. The level of
participation in the fancy dress has been mindblowing. 2018's
'Life On Mars' show was particularly impressive as the marquee filled up
with all manner of characters. 2019 will see Saturday evening's stage dressed with an 'Ancient Rome' flavour.
The fancy dress possibilities could
range from simple Togas to those dressed as 'Gladiators', 'Centurions', 'Emporers' and 'Empresses', 'Slaves' etc. - although we are expecting it to be more 'Up Pompeii' than 'Ben Hur'. We're really hoping that you go
the extra mile with your costumes. On past experience it's certain
most visitors will.
The party kicks of with a special 'Rock & Pop Anthems' set from Bri Vinyl who will be warming up the night for what follows... and that isVW Action favourites From The Ashes playing thos huge rock anthems that everyone appears to love singing along to. Not to be missed.
The Emporer Jensen D Grooverus will be your host for the remainder of the evening, along with the Narni Shakers as Sexy Roman Ladies. Expect a full on party vibe with Pop,
Disco, Indie anthems and sing-along tunes to keep the party moving - and
as always - expect the unexpected!
Fuelers Bar - Friday/Saturday Evenings
The VW Action 'Roman Ska Party' Party - Friday Evening
Jensen D Groover will be manning the decks to keep the energy levels up - playing Northern, Soul and Ska classics all night.
MIKEY KERSLAKE (Fuelers Bar, Friday Evening 9.00pm)
Making his debut at VW Action, Mikey performs classics as well as his own songs. Playing either acoustic guitar or acoustic guitar and electric loop, his indie rock music draws on real-life experiences and always tells a story. Mikey's set at VW Action will also include some reggae classics and if you like a bit of gig banter, Mikey’s your man.
THE SKALECTRICS (Fuelers Bar, Friday Evening 10.15pm)
We are really pleased to have The SKAlectrics making their debut at VW Action. A full 7-piece band, performing massive 2-Tone and Trojan Ska classics, they provide the perfect
'Ska Party' - please don't miss them.
The VW Action 'Dance Till The Cops Come' Secret House/Dance Party - Saturday Evening
For the last
couple of years, we have turned the Fuelers Bar into a 'secret
warehouse' - parodying the ‘secret raves’ of the nineties, it has proved
to be a great success and we're doing it again. Of course, it's not
'secret' nor 'illegal' - nor do we expect a visit from the boys in blue - but hopfully we
can create a vibe that oldschool dance fans will enjoy.
The evening opens with Jon James.
Although making his VW Action debut, Jon can only be described as a 'veteran'. With over 25 years DJ'ing from the early M25 raves, resident with Slip Back In Time, on pirate stations Renegade FM and Remaniss Radio and now on Rough Tempo it's fair to say Jon has been around the block and back.
Jon is swiftly followed by the reurn of Wellzee. We gave him his 'VW
Festival Debut' last year and we are really pleased to
welcome him back. Although only 19 years of age, Wellzee has played sets all over the UK and Europe - and last year he absolutely smashed it here at VW Action. Dance
fans should be in for a real treat.
Fuelers Bar, Saturday evening from 8.00pm
Late Night Movie - Saturday Evening in the Fuelers Bar
In keeping with the VW Action 2019 theme for
Saturday evening, starting at 00.15am in the Fuelers Bar is Ridley Scott's multi Oscar winning, 'Gladiator' - action, intrigue and a fantastic cast that includes Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix and Connie Nielsen.
You'll need to bring your sleeping bag or a
blanket, and in the tradition of previous 'sleepovers', we'll provide
some free popcorn and soda. Enjoy!
