Despite a slightly soggy start to the day itself, SS8 proved to be the biggest gathering of the soul family in Barnet so far. Our now legendary line-up of some 30 DJs delivered a day full of anthems & soulfuljazzyfunkydisco essentials... We were blessed with six amazing PA's on the day from former Chimes soulstress PAULINE HENRY, Brit Funk dons BEGGAR & CO, local soulful house dons THE LAYABOUTS performing alongside the excellent IMAANI. Also McGOOZER who's big on the north London circuit & a surprise PA from NATASHA WATTS in the Club Tent.
The climax of the show was the return of mighty UK jazz funk pioneers HI-TENSION on our main stage.
The 40 minute film includes an interview with the artists themselves plus DJ Fat Freddie M, as well as some of the happy punters who were there enjoying the day.
SS8 was attended by over 4,500 people & raised more than £31k for local cancer charity Cherry Lodge.
A BG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTS THE EVENT.
