Friday Night in the Main Marquee - 'John I'm Only Dancing' Dance/House Night
'Put on your red shoes and dance the blues...' At VW Action we pride ouselves on bringing you new DJs 'before they become famous' and this year is no exception. We have two great House/Dance acts to play on the Friday night at VW Action this year - DJs Wellzee and Dave RMX along with The Narni Shakers. Both with eclectic and crowd-pleasing sets, ranging from Old Skool House to cutting edge 'Mash-Ups'. Wellzee has set out to show off his own unique approach to the styles of house and tech house that he enjoys. Starting out around 3 years ago at the age of just 15 as a bedroom DJ. Wellzee, now 18, hosts two weekly radio shows on Utter Radio which is broadcast across the world and also features on many big line ups across the UK including residencies at 'Late Night Bass' in Leicester and 'Cue The Music' in London. Summer 2017 saw him complete his first season in Ibiza and is looking forward to returning in 2018 and stirring the place up with his incredible sounds.
Dave RMX is a DJ and Producer that enjoys a variety of musical styles. He plays a mix of Breaks and Bass Driven, Glitchy Funk music with a side order of Dubstep, Drum 'n' Bass and Alternative Tunes, Mash-ups, Bootlegs and all those things that get the dancefloor
jumping. Dave adapts his sets to the crowd in front of him, with the aim of making each set a memorable experience for all those in attendance - not to be missed.
Main Stage/Marquee, Friday Night.
Saturday Night in the Main Marquee
VW Action 'Life On Mars' 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. 2017's 'Masquerade Ball' was particularly impressive as the marquee filled up with all manner of 'Masked' characters. 2018 will see a 'Life On Mars' theme - with Saturday evening's stage dressed as a Martian landscape. The fancy dress possibilities for this year are as multi-faceted as the late, great David Bowie himself. One avenue could be 'Alien Life Forms', 'Spacemen', 'Martians', 'War Of The Worlds' etc., while another lends itself to follow the two hugely successful TV series 'Life On Mars' and 'Ashes To Ashes' with visitors possibly following the 70s 'TV Cops' look, - 'The Sweeney', 'Minder', 'The Professionals' or anything that represents those great 70s and early 80s 'TV Cop Shows' that featured all those wonderful car chases - or, visitors could even come as 'Bowie' himself, following that whole 70s 'Glam' look. 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 'Rock & Pop Anthems' set from Bri Vinyl who will be warming up the night for what follows... and that is Charles Fowler as 'Ziggy Stardust' with his very own 'Spiders From Mars' - one of the world's best Davie Bowie tribute acts. Not to be missed.
A Lad Insane himself, Jensen D Groover will be your host for the remainder of the evening, along with the Narni Shakers as Sexy 'Space Cadet' Ladies. Expect a full on party vibe with Pop, 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 'Suffragette City' Party - Friday Evening
DJ Pete Fearn will be manning the decks to keep the energy levels up - playing Indie classics and his famous 'Beer Mix' set all night.
SMOKE & ASHES (Fuelers Bar, Friday Evening 8.30pm)
Two-thirds of the very popular 'Three Chix & A Guitar' The girls are a superb acoustic indie duo and play anthemic hits using just their vocals... and a guitar.
BOXEDDY (Fuelers Bar, Friday Evening 10.30pm)
We are really pleased to have the boys from Boxeddy making their debut at VW Action. Performing anthems from the likes of The Jam, Killers, Oasis, Blur amongst others to provide the perfect 'Indie/Rock Party' - please don't miss them.
The VW Action 'Dance Till The Cops Come' Secret House/Dance Party - Saturday Evening
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads... For the last couple of years, we have turned the Fuelers Bar into a 'secret warehouse' - parodying the ‘secret raves’ of the nineties, it has proved to be a great success and we're doing it again. Of course, it's not 'secret' nor 'illegal' - nor do we expect a visit from the boys in blue (take a look at the lawman beating up the wrong guy?) - but hopfully we can create a vibe that oldschool dance fans will enjoy.
The evening opens with The Acid Brothers. Although not real brothers Stuart J and Matt Emulsion have known each other virtually all their lives. The duo have played at venues all over the UK and have also marked their territory in Europe playing in Germany, Austria, Ibiza, Italy and have also played in the US. They also hold residencies for Moondance, So Soulful, So Oldskool, No Flies On Us and WBF Festivals. The boys are swiftly followed by the reurn of VW Action favourite DJ Trademark. We gave Mark his 'VW Festival Debut' many, many, many years ago and we are really pleased to welcome him back. Having been established from the early days of the rave scene he became a well-known figure within the Drum 'n' Bass community. His versatility to drop a killer set and his unique DJ-ing style has carried him all over the globe. From Hardcore and Jungle to cutting edge Drum 'n' Bass, this has helped him gain a legion of fans, stretching right back to the now legendary World Party raves of the early 90s right through to the infamous London Weekly Movement. DJ Trademark has also performed at the Virgin V Festival, Bug Jam and is also one of the founders of the Los Angeles Drum 'n' Bass scene and regularly performs at the biggest events in Southern California. These include Respect, Science, Trauma and Technostate. He also DJs for Insomniac Events who are the biggest EDM organisers in the world. Dance fans should be in for a real treat.
Fuelers Bar, Saturday evening from 8.00pm
