High Definition fest goes off without a hitch!

Nowadays, technology is so confusing. From IOS to HDMI cables, everything seems to be in a completely different language. So if, like us, all you know about technology revolves around turning things on and off, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

However, not every technological term actually requires hours and hours of googling. In fact, some things remain quite simple. Enter High Definition festival. Good music, great drinks and even better atmosphere. This year’s festival definitely lived up to its reputation.

As one of Britain’s biggest Dance festivals, HD fest drew crowds from all over the place. Returning for its fourth year, the festival moved from its usual location in Essex to a new location at Tunbridge Wells.  Unlike most British festivals, HD fest was a single day only event, making every single second ten times as valuable.

What happened on the day?

What didn’t happen! Some of the biggest names in dance music graced the Kent countryside, attracting scores of party-lovers from all over. With six different stages, festivalgoers where kept on their toes, wandering from tent to tent in search of that killer DJ set.

A highlight of the day has to be the six-hour, non-stop Martinez Brothers’ set, playing some of the heaviest tunes around. As the thud of the heavy bassline field the festival year, the entertainment continued. Gorgon City headlined at the Digital Arena whilst House music guru Carl Cox lit up the Kent night. Also included in the day’s celebration was a performance by Ms Dynamite, who recently returned from a sold out tour, and Route 94, who’s deep House and Dub-step set created a miny frenzy.

Party like a Royal

Alongside the incredible music was the VIP package offered to those who wanted to party in style. With full access to an exclusive bar and a resting area of deck chairs and day beds, party lovers had the incredibly enticing offer to collapse in a heap after sweating away their electrolytes at the Gorgon City gig.

And if that wasn’t enough, VIP festivalgoers were granted access to the picturesque rooftop terrace. With an incredible birds-eye view of the entire festival, there really is no better place to watch the sun go down, while sipping a cocktail as the music quavers and hangs in the air. To sweeten the deal for VIPs, there was also a private arena, offering music all day performed by the likes of Hoxton Whores and Deeptrak.

This year, HD fest put on an incredible party. For one day only, they transformed the Kent countryside into a haven of deep house, great drinks and non-stop dancing. Here at Licklist, we can’t wait for next year!
