Something Groovy + Psychedelic Sundays + Freak Bazaar collaborate to bring you a 15hr Bank Holiday Sunday session 24/05/15 at Coalition, the heart of Brighton’s seafront.
In the daytime we’ll be mixing up an inspiring blend of sounds for a sunny seafront afternoon: Global Fusions, Chilled Dub, & Housey Grooves played to the seafront terrace, and when the terrace closes between 8pm-9pm, we’ll head indoors where the vibe will go more uptempo; with Gaudi on stage at 22:30, taking us on an energetic 2hr journey through his varied soundscapes. Following Gaudi, the vibe will be woven into progressive trance and winding up to full on psy trance. The Coalition’s grandiose arches will be adorned with world class décor and projections by Something Groovy.
