Dreamland Margate announces that legendary British electronic act Leftfield will be playing a DJ set at the Hall By the Sea on Saturday 2 February 2019.
Leftfield have been at the cutting edge of dance music since the 1990s, releasing albums that have become some of the most influential electronic records of all time around the world with their debut LP Leftism being widely regarded as one of the most boundary-pushing electronic LPs ever released.
In 2010, Neil Barnes reignited the Leftfield name and went on to release a new album as well as touring the world as a top-tier DJ and record collector unleashing modern dance floor weapons, selling out venues and creating some amazing nights with his sets. Last year in 2017/2018 Leftfield performed live headlining festivals with their incredible live show.
At the same time, Neil has cemented his reputation as a DJ and headlined dance music festivals on his own as a DJ too.
“I’m going to be playing an eclectic range of house/techno tracks. There's so many great new records out there and my sets are all about building tension and mood on the dance floor. That's not to say I won't play the odd older or ethnic track when the mood suits. Expect a tough dance floor journey...”
Supporting Leftfield on the evening is Gerald Simpson better known as ‘A Guy Called Gerald’, a British DJ, Producer and Musician known for his huge hit ‘Voodoo Ray’ which influenced the Manchester acid house scene in the 1980s. 2019 marks his 30th anniversary tour, cementing his reputation as a key figure on the electronic music underground circuit.
Tom Ranger, Music Programmer at Dreamland Margate said: “2019 is going to be a big year for music acts at Dreamland, and we’re really excited to have Leftfield along to perform for the dance and electronic music lovers”.
Starting at 9:30pm until 1:00am, tickets for Leftfield are priced between £12.50 - £15 and go on general sale at 10am on Wednesday 7 November via dreamland.co.uk.
Dreamland in Margate offers a unique festival feeling every day, with rides, music events, great food and drink and pop-up entertainment for all generations to enjoy. The team at Dreamland is passionate about delivering fun experiences with a twist of the unexpected that keeps visitors coming back again and again. Dreamland is considered to be the oldest-surviving amusement park in Great Britain: the site of Dreamland (as it was re-named in 1920) dates back to the British railway boom and the early 1870s when, in its original form, the ‘Hall by the Sea’ was operated by the circus tycoon, ‘Lord’ George Sanger. Following a £35 million investment from Arrowgrass Capital Partners, Dreamland reopened in May 2017. It is less than 90 minutes from London by train with Margate station only a 5-minute walk away.
