This Winchester dance fest started its career one stage at Glastonbury, but its electronic moves and grooves turned pied piper in 2004, and branched off, glow sticks, and old skool hedonists in tow. It's still held in a field, in a number of tents and open air stages, surrounded by themed mini villages, and there's still the fringe acts happen around the outskirts, and the event is held in mid July, about the same time of year as Glastonbury, but the there's less let up from heavy dance beats and the festival pushes into the realms of psychedelic electronica and then some.

The audience is more eclectic than you might imagine and even though it's not one of the UK's best known festivals it has quite an international following.
