Andrew Weatherall & Ivan Smagghe, Dave Clarke and Maya Jane Coles are among the first names confirmed to appear at the next edition of Bugged Out Weekender, going down at Butlins Resort in Bognor Regis from January 18th – 20th.
After almost two decades of operation, Bugged Out is one of the UK’s longest running club nights. Its festival offshoot debuted at Butlins—a seaside tourist resort on the English south coast—in January of this year with an assorted cast of house, techno and UK bass names. As with music festivals held at Butlins resorts in the past (Bloc and All Tomorrow’s Parties at the Minehead branch), Bugged Out Weekender attendees are hosted across various forms of chalet accommodation.
The 2013 event will see a variety of genres represented by a selection of acts that, so far, includes Crosstown Rebels regular Maceo Plex, Bristol native Eats Everythingand Hessle Audio co-founder Ben UFO. Heidi, Erol Alkan, Scuba and Toddla T will also be part of the contingent set to take over Bugged Out Weekender’s five indoor arenas.
On the weekender 2012: “We didn’t know what to expect until gone midnight on the Friday when we were bowled over by the spirit of the crowd. There were smiles all round all weekend. And a lot of dancing (unless you got stuck on the Hello Kitty ride for hours on end).”
On the weekender 2013:
“This year Bugged Out will once again reflect their 18 year history with a programme consisting of all the best in techno, house, disco and bass music. Join us and start the year as you mean to go on.”
