Following the announcement that Junction 2 is to take place at West London’s Boston Manor Park, festival organisers LWE can now reveal details of its stage splits which sees respected establishments Drumcode, The Hydra and Closer each host.
Adam Beyer’s Drumcode takes centre stage underneath the site’s dominating bridge structure, with powerful lines of pillars set to run down the length of the dance floor. Contrasting with the brutalist aesthetic of the main stage, Boston Manor Park’s natural beauty will be truly revealed when festival goers follow tree-lined pathways to the field where The Hydra: electric minds 10 and Closer stages will sit.
With the three stages boasting a slew of names that represent the thriving techno scene, performances from the likes of Marcel Dettmann – who will go back to back with Nina Kraviz – Âme, Scuba and Mano Le Tough are scheduled. UK legend Mr G will be performing live, whilst the equally innovative Carl Craig will also bring his live project to Junction 2 in ‘Modular Pursuits’ – paving the way for what’s set to be an unrivaled day of quality techno in the capital.
Boston Manor Park immediately presents the contrasts of the capital city. All at once it is both green space and abstract architecture. On approach the site is dominated by the overhead bridge. Powerful lines stream into the distance as the bridge stretches across the park below creating a corridor of pillars. Visitors will be drawn into lush parkland and woodlands, then onward, down the length of the avenue ahead, crossing a bridge over a small moat and onto an island upon which the mainstage will sit, cocooned amongst concrete and trees with water on all sides.
Contrasting with the brutalist aesthetic of the Drumcode stage, the site’s natural beauty is truly revealed when you see the location of The Hydra and Closer stages. Enclosed by a tree line and linked to the bridge area through a series of winding woodland paths, step down into an inviting open field where LWE will be creating an array of beautiful bars, interesting art and a delicious food area.
Each of the stages will provide a unique and different atmosphere, all are covered so you can enjoy the music and not worry about any unreliable British weather!
