We have two great House/Dance acts to play on the Friday night at VW Action this year - DJ WreckDown and VW Action favourite DJ Craig 'Cut-Up' Jones along with The Narni Shakers. Both with eclectic and crowd-pleasing sets, ranging from Old Skool House to cutting edge Drum N Bass. DJ WreckDown makes his debut at Action. Having played the length and breadth of the UK and with mixes featured on BBC Radio 1Xtra and Kiss FM, we thought we'd invite him to VW Action - followed swiftly by Craig.
VW enthusiast Craig is the 2014/2015 BPM Freestyle Champion and dance fans are in for a real treat as Craig mixes tunes with video on the Main Stage on Friday night.
Main Stage/Marquee, Friday Night.
Saturday Night in the Main Marquee
VW Action 'Masquerade Ball' Theme Night
For years now one of the most anticipated elements of VW Action has been the Saturday night 'theme party'. The level of participation in the fancy dress has been mindblowing. 2016 was particularly impressive as the marquee filled up with all manner of 'Wonderland' characters. This year, the theme should lend itself well to things like Steampunk, Gothic/Baroque (think 'Poldark') and 'Phantom Of The Opera' etc. It should give the ladies (and a few of the lads no doubt) a chance to wear their posh frocks - and PAAARTY!!. Please just remember to bring your masks. Once again we've dressed the stage like a full-on West End Musical - transforming it into a slightly twisted 'Viennese Palace' complete with giant props - and we're hoping that you go the extra mile with your costumes too. On past experience it's certain most visitors will.
The party kicks of with a special 'Pop & Soul Anthems' set from Bri Vinyl who will be warming up the night for what follows... and that is From The Ashes. The VW Action favourites will be playing all those great rock anthems that just simply appeal to all. They rock!
Jensen D Groover will be your host for the remainder of the evening, along with the Narni Shakers as Sexy Masked Ladies. Expect a full on party vibe with Pop, a LOT of Disco, Indie anthems and sing-along tunes to keep the party moving - and as always - expect the unexpected!
Fuelers Bar - Friday/Saturday Evenings
The VW Action 'Rockaway' Party - Friday Evening
DJ 'Ard Rock 'Arry will be manning the decks to keep the energy levels up - playing Rock and Metal classics all night.
3 CHIX & A GUITAR (Fuelers Bar, Friday Evening 8.30pm)
The girls are a superb acoustic indie outfit and play anthemic hits using just their vocals... and a guitar.
WALKWAY (Fuelers Bar, Friday Evening 10.30pm)
We are really pleased to have the boys from Walkway at VW Action. The band have spent the last fews years touring extensively performing at their own shows and supporting the likes of Status Quo, The Darkness, Black Stone Cherry, Bernie Marsden (Whitesnake), Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Graham Bonnet (Rainbow) amongst others. Walkway's distinct vocals, jaw dropping solos and solid rhythm section have created a huge buzz and gained the band the reputation as one of the UK's best new rock bands. If you like classic melodic rock - please don't miss them.
The VW Action 'Dance Till The Cops Come' Secret House/Dance Party - Saturday Evening
A couple of years back we turned the Fuelers Bar into a 'secret warehouse' - parodying the ‘secret raves’ of the nineties, it was a great success, so we have decided to do it again. Of course, it's not 'secret' nor 'illegal' - nor do we expect a visit from the boys in blue - but hopfully we can create a vibe that oldschool dance fans will enjoy.
The evening opens with London based DJ Jay Fresco. Jay a product of the Ibiza DJ Academy will set the tone for the evening - and is swiftly followed by Action favourite Niki Dimensions. Niki is a Veedubber and started DJ’ing in 1990 after saving a year’s worth of paper round money to buy a dodgy set of Soundlab decks and Phonic mixer. Through most of the nineties he played at Labrynth, One Nation, Best of British (Jungle Raves) and Raindance and partied every summer in Ibiza. Niki was one of the first DJs (along with Alias A) to play House Music on PassionFM around 1999 when the station was predominantley UK Garage and 2 Step. Fast forward to the present day and you can still find him on Passion every Wednesday night 8.00pm-10.00pm, playing the most luscious Deep House and Ambient. His mission statement in life... “All I wanna do is make people dance.” Let’s not
Fuelers Bar, Saturday evening from 8.00pm
