New festival ‘Shockout’ announces first wave of it’s line up

Hospitality In The Park is billed as the last festival of summer; an opportunity for drum and bass enthusiasts to see the season out in style. Now, they look keen to build on this with a new winter festival, Shockout.

Hospitality has teamed up with Bristol based festival, The Blast, to bring about this new project. Set in Bath and West Show house on the 24th February. They’ve announced a star-studded Phase One line up for their debut 2018 edition.

Headlining the festival on the main stage will be J Hus, in his first ever headline festival appearance. The Afrobeats artist, best known for his critically acclaimed ‘Common Sense’ album also secured a UK Top 10 track in the form of 2017 release ‘Did You See’. Bristonian favourites My Nu Leng also return to their local area to wow the native crowd with their dark beats.

Joining them will be a strong Hospitality contingent, including London Electricity, Etherwood and Danny Byrd, whose 2008 track ‘Shockout’ the festival takes it’s name from. Rounding off the line up are jump up legends SASASAS.

Aside from the music the indoor festival will also include outdoor food areas, bars, and fairground rides. This festival looks to be an exciting union of the massive Hospitality & The Blast brands after a decade of working with one another.
