After the huge success of ‘Modstock 2’ in 2004 (also at The Rocket Complex) which drew in visitors from all walks of life from all four corners of the globe, there was much positive feed back and many calls for a potential similar but hopefully more regular London based event. This would by its very nature, take on board the quality and diverse demands of the modernist and wider sixities scene and also adding in even more imaginative ingredients from various similar areas and scenes, to ensure a top quality ‘weekend of sin’, with vintage culture, music, fun and mucho partying over 3 days and nights in the music capital of the UK! We therefore have an amazing 3 day program of events planned for you which you will discover as you read on.
Firstly, being a live music led event, we have bought together some classic legendary names, mixed with some international ‘must see’ newer acts, some scenester mainstays, some all out blisssssstering outfits, and even some young cutting edge bands that are setting the UK ‘live’ scene alight as we speak!
Next up, a truely eclectic, super line-up of talented DJ’s from all over the World (as well as many familiar fave scene DJs), with 3 and sometimes 4 rooms of quality, rare music covering all major aspects of the Modernist/ Sixties/Psych/Beat/Garage/Soul Funk/RnB/RnR/Spectrum from a refreshing perspective. This will give you a chance to check out sounds from around the globe from many people who you have never have heard play before! These DJ’s are prepared to wear out the souls from your dancing shoes from sunset to sunrise so be sure to bring along a spare pair!
There will also be a BBC Radio London ‘Live Broadcast’, Pip! Pip! Lightshow, Go-Go Dancers, Market Stalls, Movies, Expos, ‘Le Beat Bespoke’ Kult Film Premier, Record Dealers and much, much more besides.
As ever there will be a dedicated ‘Le R&B Room’ and ‘Le Beat Bespoke Room’ (Garage/Beat/Psych/Classics) for all 3 nites with NUT’s DJ’s::DR ROBERT, SPEED, PID, CHRIS DALE, SCOTT COPELAND, Bertie & Steve and very special guests Micky (Velvet Illusion), Mark Raison (Shake), Roger Banks, PJ (Dirty Water Club), Liam Watson (Toerag)
