SSW8

Event Information

A Mecca for people that love the purest and most underground forms of Soul and House music around, brought to you by the world's top DJ's, live acts and emerging talent from around the globe.  From the rarest and most underplayed cuts culled from the 70's, 80's right up to current releases and discoveries, to underplayed Northern, Crossover and Funky Northern, with the odd classic thrown in for good measure.

Set in the stunning Stanwix Holiday Park in Cumbria, just 20 minutes from Carlisle, on the beautiful Solway Coast by the sea, we're back again with our four rooms on our 5 star park. It’s about the superior sound systems with 25K of Incubus Void Systems in our main arena, it’s about the friendly park staff and door stewards, it’s about the 6.00am bars, it’s about the brilliant train and motorway links that makes it so easy to get to by any mode of transport, it's about the incredible choice of 5 star apartments, heated glamping pods and great camping and BYO motor home/caravan facilities but most of all it's about the music and the SSW people.

Crossover, Funky Northern, Rare Disco & Edits, Modern & Northern Soul, Funk, Boogie, Nu Disco and House music in FOUR amazing rooms.

DAVE EVISON PLAYS SSW8

First of all, a massive welcome to all our new mailing list members.  This is where you will find out about all our DJ bookings and news FIRST, about all the genres of black music that we cover at SSW.  We are pleased to announce that we are bringing back our Blue Room, where everything that doesn’t quite musically fit into our brilliant Soul room or House room will be featured.  This includes Rare Disco, Jazz Funk, Broken Beats, Latin, Jazz, Acid, Rare Groove and all the other left of centre stuff.  This will allow us to make our Soul room purer and our House room more soulful House, deeper and Disco Edits based. 

So let’s start with the Shrine Room, where the Soul literally drips from the ceiling.  We have already announced Mick H on Facebook, one of Europe’s premier Funky Northern, silly rare, obscure sevens and mega $$$ oldies sevens DJs.  We are now super stoked to announce that we only went and booked a total legend, a Soul titan, that being ex Wigan Casino DJ, Blackpool Tower and Winter Gardens resident and Stafford DJ…DAVE EVISON who drops long forgotten gems and a man that will complement our rare and underplayed philosophy to a tee.   When it comes to Northern Soul clubs and DJ's, Wigan Casino and Dave Evison are giants so this is gonna be very special.  

REMEMBER  Our four berths sell out incredibly fast, see below for booking details or how to reserve a unit or some of our other brilliant accommodation. All prices have remained the same as last year, with accommodation to suit EVERY pocket from £35.00pp (2 nights camping) up to £116.00pp for the full weekend based on unit max occupancy (3 nights in a swish apartment).

 

SSW accommodation ranges from touring and tent pitches, glamping pods (heated), luxury 5 star static homes and apartments. Pay in full, both accommodation and passes now OR split the cost by securing your accommodation first, then your passes at a later date, they are guaranteed when you purchase your accommodation. We are also offering folk a 50% deposit to secure accommodation this year.

TOM JACKSON PLAYS SSW8

If you joined the mailing list in the last few days since our last mailout, props to you for supporting SSW and your interest in the best funkin’ weekender in Europe. 

We are announcing ALL our DJ’s by mailshot first, so you will be ahead of the game with the SSW8 line up every time.  Last week we announced that ex Wigan Casino legend Dave Evison will be playing in our incredible Shrine Soul room, Bam Bam in The Blue Room and Soul Supremo Mick H in The Shrine Room   Tonight we are announcing another incredible Soul DJ booking.

 

To say Tom Jackson was “part of the furniture at the Southport Weekender” is an understatement!  He was on every line up from the get go, even playing at the first venue in Berwick upon Tweed, right up until the mid-Southport era, “the golden years” some would argue.  Add to this Tom’s memorable slots at the now, almost temple like Allanton all niters and his legendary Kilt gigs, which was one of the U.K.s premier Soul events and you could say that Tom is Scottish Soul Royalty.

 

Twenty years ago though Tom walked away from a glittering DJ career to become chairman of a football team and their coach.  Turning his back on slots up and down the U.K. and many residencies, Tom certainly left at the top of the game, the Soul game that is.   Fast forward twenty years and Tom is back DJing once again and we are totally blown away that he has chosen SSW8 to be the weekender where he will be making his first weekender appearance at in over two decades.  Known for ridiculously rare Modern Soul, seventies and eighties, crossover, steppers and new release Soul, Tom will be dusting off his obscure bullets for our listening pleasure.  

 

We’re not sure what to expect from Tom after all these years….Except to expect sheer Soul quality, as YOU would expect.   History in the making at SSW yet again!

General

It’s been a while since the blog was up due to the fact that we have given our website a complete overhaul, both at the front end and the back end but it’s finally up and running once again. Lots to catch up with regarding both SSW and MFSB, as well as the records of interest to folk that attend all the SSW/MFSB events, or other clubs that play quality House, rare Soul, Boogie and Disco, Funk and Jazz. Although the SSW website has been down whilst we have worked on it, the work for the SSW event itself has been relentless. We have already announced some of the artistes for SSW8 but we have many more to filter out into the public domain but don’t wait until you see the line up if you require one of the smaller, limited four berth units….Trust me, get your groups organised and get booking as they will sell out fast.

Travel

One bit of brilliant news to announce before we get onto the music side of things is that Carlisle airport, just 25 minutes from the SSW venue, is finally ready to start passenger flights. June 4th is when the passenger flights will begin with London, Dublin and Belfast being the three cities that you can fly direct from, as well as being able to get connections from other major airports that fly into London, Dublin and Belfast. It jus’ got a whole lot easier to get to SSW https://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/carlisle-airport-reopens-flights-lake-district-stobart-group-london-dublin-belfast-southend-a8173441.html There is several buses coming to SSW8, contact details of organisers will be going on our travel page this week we hope AND if you wanna run a mini bus and get yourself a free pass, or a organise a larger bus and get a couple of passes, e mail us at yogihaughton.ssw@gmail.com right away and we’ll add your info too. Join that SSW mailing list and you will be notified of all the bus details.

Record dealers at SSW8

Those of you that attended SSW7 will recall that there were some great records for sale at the event, Gavin Page’s stall did a very brisk trade selling some great rare Soul and House tunes and Soul Sam had his box of rarities out now and again, when he wasn’t DJing of course. This year we are well stoked that Liverpool’s finest record store 3b Records will have a stall at SSW, selling both classic and new House music, Disco edits and they stock some great re issue shiz too. If you would like to run a stall at SSW selling vinyl, art, clothing etc, reach out at yogihaughton.ssw@gmail.com for details. Incidentally, Gavin Page might be running a stall at SSW8 but with the new flights from London to Carlisle, he still has not decided on whether he will drive (with vinyl) or fly….Watch this space.

Jocelyn Brown at SSW8

SSW is the premier weekender for the real House and Soul heads.  Past guests have included M.A.N.D.Y, Darrow Fletcher (Live) Todd Terry, Honky, Faze Action (Live) Ivan Smagghe, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Soul Sam, DJ Spinna, Ann Sexton (Live) Horse Meat Disco, Pig And Dan, Garfield Fleming (Live) Mood II Swing, Joe Bataan (Live) Tony Humphries, Kerri Chandler, A Guy Called Gerald (Live) Rahaan, John Morales, the list simply goes on and on and on.  As the promotion for SSW8 gets under way proper, SSW are pleased to announce that the undisputed Queen of Disco and all things soulful, JOCELYN BROWN, will be celebrating her birthday with us at SSW8 (one of her favourite gigs) and performing for us also.  It’s been three years since Jocelyn smashed the disco ball outta the park at SSW3, so we are well stoked to have this genuine, real deal legend returning to our stage over November 23/24/25th 2018
