JERSEY, 2015-3-2 — /Travel PR News/ — A brand new, exciting & innovative one-day festival is coming to the island! This 12 hour production will take place on Saturday 11th July 2015 in Coronation Park and will be spread over 4 stages, showcasing 30 artists to a crowd of up to three thousand people. Reasons will be a celebration of the very best of contemporary electronica, joining the dots between its influences and the art forms it impacts.
THE LAUNCH: Reasons Festival will officially launch on Saturday 7th March at St. Helier’s Rojo Bar with a very special party musically hosted by dancefloor legend, and, quite frankly, one of the most relevant DJs of today’s UK scene, Justin Robertson. A man with an equal love for forward thinking electronica and more traditional sounds, he perfectly embodies the ethos behind Reasons. Attendees of this special event will be the first to hear the announcement of initial artists booked to come to Jersey on 11th July 2015 to entertain crowds at this year’s festival.
Reasons Festival is the brainchild of local DJs and promoters Ben Newman & John O’Connell, founders of the Rocksteady collective. Reflecting on decades of the extraordinary electronic scene, they aim to recognise, appreciate and celebrate the many corners of this much loved, cultural phenomena by inviting a plethora of varied talented artists in the field, with the objective of delivering an eco friendly, allinclusive, and outright fun electronic music festival, to be danced at and remembered, by both islanders and visitors alike.
Organiser Ben Newman says
“Our long term aim is for Electronic Music to be recognised as the culturally relevant art form that it is here in Jersey, in the same way that it is in much of Europe. This event, whilst of course aiming to be great fun, is about much more than just a party – we hope to highlight to people what has influenced the music that arguably dominates popular music culture today, and in turn demonstrate how this music influences the world around us, in so many ways”.
Reasons Festival looks forward to becoming a permanent fixture on Jersey’s rich and colourful cultural landscape, delivering a perfectly crafted, locally aware event, dedicated to the honouring of the electronic music age.
