Billed as ‘the world’s friendliest party’, over six thousand members of the worldwide Southport family head to Butlins, Minehead for three unforgettable days at the UK’s most important black music event on 8-10 May. Having evolved from its beginnings as a soul music weekender, the 25 year old event now stands as the most musically diverse weekender in the UK festival calendar. Guests appearing across four purpose built arenas (each covering a different strand of music) include Louie Vega & Kenny Dope Gonzalez aka Masters at Work, David Morales, Tony Humphries, Kerri Chandler, Chez Damier, Grammy award winner Lalah Hathaway, Reel People, Jocelyn Brown and many more.

From the R&B, soul and hip hop of The Funkbase and the main room dance sounds of The Powerhouse, to the soul aficionados Connoisseurs’ Corner, the eclectic styles of The Beat Bar, and the terrific Dalmatian flavour of the SuncéBeat Dome, Southport Weekender will treat you to a feast of the world’s leading DJ talent, accompanied by party starting live acts and guest PAs
