Festival preview: Hospitality Weekend in the Woods
If you’re into drum and bass, there’s only one place you should be on the 18th and 19th September. And that’s Hospitality Weekend in the Woods.
Set against the beautiful backdrop of Beckenham Place Mansion (coz there’s not much space in Lidl to get a rave going, unfortunately), Hospitality Weekend in the Woods has gained a reputation for being the definitive DnB festival. All of biggest international stars are going to be there, alongside guest spots from the next generation of talent – so whether you’re into the classics, or are more excited to discover new artists that other people haven’t yet, there’s something for everyone here.

It’s super easy to get here too. Beckenham Place Park is accessible from all angles – from the south, you’ve got Beckenham Junction (which, as any true south Londoner will tell you, is where trams and go and from) and Ravensbourne train station. From the north, you’ve got Beckenham Hill train station, and Beckenham is pretty close to Sydenham and Catford too.
With *eight* stages all set to go for two whole days, it’s no surprise that the line-up is looking pretty lit too. Headlining the Hospitality stage on the Saturday is Metrik, Hospitals’ very own world-class DJ hailing from London. Since releasing his debut album Universal Language, he’s scored a UK Dance Chart Top 10, mixed an edition of the prestigious BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix hosted by Pete Tong, as well as taking control of his own residency on BBC Radio 1. When he’s not dominating BBC Radio 1, Metrik takes his high-energy beats around the world, from the very best nightclubs in Ibiza and Dubai, through to festival appearances at Glastonbury, Global Gathering, and EDC.
