As well as our main stage acts, we have a dazzling array of surprises on the evening, as well as some top notch food to keep you going all the way through the night… see below for a sneak peek at what’s in store.
There’s partying and then there’s partying hard, and we’re sure things are going to get pretty wild in the Masquerave room.
We’ve created a room where you can hear the hottest tunes from the 90s and beyond – as our DJs spin classic anthems to contemporary beats spanning all genres of music. We’ve got UV lighting, glow sticks, glow jugglers and tunes so hot they’re guaranteed to light up the dance floor. And expect plenty of beats from Glo Rida, yeah?
As the name suggests, the Grand Ballroom is the embodiment of everything magnificent about this year’s theme and is where you’ll find this year’s main stage; encompassing some of the biggest names in UK pop music right now!
Take a stroll down the red carpet and experience all the luxury of a true celebrity lifestyle. Don’t be deceived by the various ornamental busts we have lined up near the entrance; they’re ready to spring to life and greet you with a dazzling array of golden draping, exquisite drinks, and all the decadence you would expect from a AAA entrance!
If you’re looking to check out some of the fantastic acoustic artists playing this year, including the fantastic Lucy Spraggan, or need the perfect location to catch up with friends, the Sanctuary Bar is the place to be.
This acoustic area provides the perfect environment to take a quick break from the party and a grab a drink with friends, whilst taking in the mellow sounds of the artists performing on the acoustic stage.
Set within the newly refurbished Lindsey Suite, the Indie Room is where you’ll find the biggest names in… you guessed it, Indie music. It’s the perfect place to let your hair down and take a walk on the wild side.
Grab your beers from the bottle bar and get ready to party to the likes of The Pigeon Detectives and Hull’s very own Affairs. No masks needed in here: but we do expect plenty of jumping around, sing-alongs and partying!
We’ll be announcing more additions to our tasty line up of entertainment, street food, themed rooms and much much more over the coming weeks… so keep an eye out online for updates!
