Sasha b2b John Digweed, and Carl Cox are to headline The Social Festival which returns on Friday 9th & Saturday 10th September 2016 to it's new home, The Kent County Showground.

On Friday Sasha & John Digweed will go back to back at the fourth edition of The Social Festival to headline the Meadow Arena - the show will be limited to 5,000 customers. On Saturday Carl Cox will return to headline The Social Festival for the second time.

With more names to be announced.

Brainchild of house and techno veteran and founder of Saved Records Nic Fanciulli, The Social represents a diverse mix of internationally acclaimed DJs in the picturesque setting of Mote Park.

Nic Fanciulli said, "I've never been more excited to announce our headliners for The Social; filled with friends, mentors, and dance music legends, it really means a lot to me.

"As a kid I used to religiously follow Sasha & Digweed everywhere around the country and their compilations and music helped shape who I am today. I've been given many invaluable opportunities throughout my career, and being able to play alongside both of them individually over the years has definitely been one of them - they were both early supporters of mine, i’m honoured to call them both friends, and extremely proud and excited that their first show show in 8 years will be headlining The Social on Friday.

"My relationship with Carl Cox is quite a public affair, most people know the ins and outs of how close we are, and I really owe a lot to him. Playing b2b with him so many times over the years is something I will never take for granted, and he remains the biggest inspiration for me as a DJ - always humble, always smiling, and consistently amazing. Since I was young I've been in awe of him, and he continues to impress me every time we get together. I'm super excited that my mentor, and one of my closest friends is headlining Saturday for us."
