A Breakdown Of Our Stages

At last year’s inaugural ABODE in the Park, we invited all of our extended family to Finsbury Park, including past guests, our seasoned residents and our legion of fans who have partied with us since the beginning. Together, we closed the UK summer festival season in emphatic fashion. In 2018, we raised the bar even higher, launching ABODE On the Rock in Gozo and taking over Thursday nights on Amnesia’s terrace in Ibiza. We keep setting ourselves goals and when we break them we aim higher still. The same goes for year two of ABODE in the Park. We’re going bigger – adding three new music arenas on top of the favourites from last year. Here’s a breakdown of the stages and the hosts you’ll find at Finsbury Park on Sunday 23rd September.

THE MAIN STAGE

HOSTED BY ABODE

The name speaks for itself. The jewel in our crown. The centre of the action. The main focus. It’s here you will find the biggest sound system, the biggest acts and the biggest crowds. Big is the order of the day. Super-sized and super-charged for 2018. ABODE don’t do things by halves. But you already knew that. Expect to see a stellar line-up of A-listers complimented by our ABODE residents.

 

THE TERRACE

HOSTED BY WARRIORS

Because we know some of you music fanatics still enjoy that added bit of luxury we have confirmed ABODE’s playful little sister Hot Bed into the VIP arena, who bring good vibes and a bit of class to proceedings. High-end cocktails, luxurious toilet facilities, cool hangout areas, live instruments and a music line-up you won’t experience anywhere else at ABODE in the Park. Proper exclusive.

 

THE WAREHOUSE

HOST TO BE ANNOUNCED

The Warehouse. Enclosed, dark, hot and with a pumping sound system and sparse production. This is our ode to London’s warehouse party heritage. The roots of our scene was born in these very industrial spaces. Harking back to a bygone era, this is little piece of the inner city inside the lush surrounding of Finsbury Park. One for the music lovers, the warehouse host will be announced soon!

 

THE BIG TOP

HOSTED BY DANNY HOWARD’S NOTHING ELSE MATTERS

A UK festival favourite. There’s a reason it’s called the big top. High ceilings and – much like the circus – you can expect that added sense of theatre. The Big Top goes hand-in-hand with the smell of grass and booming thud of 4/4 electronic music. A further gift for the eardrums comes in the form of Danny Howard’s Nothing Else Matters – the project that promotes the sounds of our generation and conjures up images of good times.

 

THE BOX

HOSTED BY LOVEJUICE

Sometimes perfection lies in its simplest form. What can we say about The Box? It’s back to basics. A cuboid corridor with great acoustics and an unobstructed view of the DJ regardless of your position. Hosting The Box is the innately-capable LoveJuice, who bring their feel-good flair to the North London locale with their love of top-notch acoustics and sunshine-laden basslines. Get boxed in with ABODE in the Park.

 

THE SECRET GARDEN

HOSTED BY LITTLE FESTIVAL

A stage assimilated into the stunning natural features of Finsbury Park, we welcome Little Festival to host proceedings and showcase their intense percussive energies for a bouncing dance-floor. The size of their vision is not dissimilar to the volume of treats they hand out to punters; foam noodles, inflatable flamingos and other hilarious novelties are a frequent motif at their events. It’s the perfect place to unwind from the exhilaration of the larger stages.

 

THE STABLES

HOST TO BE ANNOUNCED

Usually reserved for four-legged friends with hooves, we’ve removed the hay and renovated these ones in question, installing a DJ booth. Expect absolute horseplay. There’s no flies on our DJs.

 

THE BUS

HOST TO BE ANNOUNCED

A London icon. How do you improve it? Add a sound system and a DJ – that’s how. Our four-wheeled music arena at ABODE in the Park.
