51st State Festival

Aug 05, 2023
Since 2015, 51st Festival has been joining the dots between seminal figures of dance music culture and the new generation of artists pushing the movement forward today. From its roots in US Gospel, Soul, Disco and House through iconic genres like Garage, 2-step, Acid House, Dancehall, R&B and more, 51st Festival showcases the technicoloured heritage of dance and is amongst the most diverse and inclusive festivals in the UK. Past shows have featured the likes of Masters At Work, EZ, Norman Jay MBE, Soul II Soul, Jocelyn Brown, Crystal Waters, Roy Ayers Ubiquity, Basement Jaxx, Mood II Swing, Kevin Saunderson, Fabio & Grooverider, Carl Cox, Evelyn Champaign King, Melba Moore, Mr Vegas, Trevor Nelson, Tanya Stevens, Kerri Chandler, Hannah Wants, Brand New Heavies and Mark Knight.

Following the success and positive feedback of the 2022 edition, we are excited to announce 51st Festival will return to Copthall Playing Fields for 2023 on the original earlier August date, Saturday 5th August.   

51st Festival returns to its new home at Copthall Playing Fields. Which is easily accessible by tube (Mill Hill East on the Northern Line), train (Mill Hill Broadway, 17 minutes from King’s Cross St Pancras), bus (Copthall Sports Centre) and by car with plenty of parking available.  


51st Festival will once again celebrate the roots of House music, pulling together the threads of this hugely influential sound, exploring classic house, tech house, afro house, garage, disco, soul, dancehall and more. Your favourite pioneers from Chicago, New York, Detroit, London and beyond will be joined by the trailblazers of today. The 51st Festival program is truly transatlantic, joining the dots between the US, the UK, Europe and the Caribbean.

As you have come to expect, the full stellar line-up will be released soon, along with the stage splits so make sure you get your tickets early!  

51st Festival 2023 - a celebration of the roots of House music exploring Soulful, Classic, Tech, Afro, Garage, Disco, Soul, RnB, Dancehall, Soca, Amapiano, Drum & Bass and more!
