Ground control to Major Tom, pack your party bags and put your helmet on! We’re commencing the countdown to Deep South 2017, which takes place in a private ancient woodlands in Tunbridge Wells. This year’s Space Oddity theme follows one of South London’s greatest musical heroes, David Bowie. Taking inspiration from Ziggy Stardust to Aladdin Sane, Heroes to Heathens, come with your painted faces and Let’s Dance. Deep South showcases the best in live music and DJ sets from South London’s tight knit musical community and beyond, from Dark Sky and Throwing Snow to Afriquoi and Andrew Ashong live. In addition to seeing a return of the labels, parties and record stores involved in last year’s Mansion Party, the festival welcomes some exciting new partners including Brighton’s Disco Deviant who bring The Reflex, Rayko and Pablo Contraband for a takeover of the Lake Stage! This year welcomes the new ‘Club of Hearts’ stage, hosting an immersive and interactive line up of performance and cabaret ft. Evelyn Carnate, Brazen Bijoux, Athena Beauvoir, Fifi Croissant, Velvet Jones & Pi the Mime. Berliner Pilsner and Double Dutch Tonics will be on hand serving cold, quality drinks whilst South London’s very own pop-up geniuses ‘Smoke and Ember’ will be turning up the heat with a sizzling selection of street food. As per last year’s event the festival will feature high-grade audio from Solo Sound (including Void Acoustics and Nexo PS rigs).  Deep South is more than just a party. More than just a festival. It’s an intimate gathering (max 450) of party people and passionate music heads, a celebration for the extended South London musical community. Ahead of this focused explosion of musical talent, we’ve lined up a selection of artists from the line-up to share some of their favourite music from recent times. Fancy partying with us?
