Headlining the festivities at Electric Soup, Workington will be BBC Radio 1’s very own MONKI
With a BBC Radio 1 show, her own party brand and a record label, Monki presides over a mini empire. In the seven years since she first got involved in the electronic music business, she has risen to every challenge with aplomb, working her way up from an intern at Rinse FM to become an influential international selector, with gigs across Britain and beyond. Monki has appeared at many of the UK’s most iconic venues as well as commanding the big stage at festivals on a regular basis. A consistent force within the electronic music scene, Monki operates in a class of her own.

5 times Faithless absolutely smashed it livedean2019-08-06T17:26:31+01:00
Whilst searching the web to see if our future headliners Faithless had been to our splendid town of Luton before, we started to uncover not only that they had, but also a whole list of other incredible acts had once performed here too!
Way back in the late 90’s a festival popped up called Tribal Gathering, held on the grounds at Luton Hoo Estate in the summer, between 25,000 – 35,000 ravers would descend on the event who bought in acts such as (Wait for it):….
The Chemical Brothers
Felix da Housecat
Masters At Work
Whilst it’s unlikely an event of this magnitude will happen in that location again, we can still be excited to bring in one act off the epic list this Easter, as we celebrate 5 Years Of Taste The Punch on Good Friday at Carnival Arts, Luton.
If you were one of the lucky ones and managed attend Tribal Gathering feel free to let us know all about on twitter
