Connoisseur’s Corner will offer up a soul music sensation, with legendary Southport Weekender residents, guests and friends Terry Jones, Bob Jeffries, Colin Curtis and Richard Searling, plus the soulful sounds of The Unabombers.

There will also be an exclusive disco set from DJ Spen, coming fresh from tearing the roof off the SuncéBeat Dome at The Big 50.

Meanwhile in the Funkbase an urban flavour is on the cards with Bigger, JP, Ronnie Herel and the fantastic Trevor Nelson, above.

Over in the Powerhouse DJs will be fuelling the UK – Chicago connection with London titan Grant Nelson and deep house maestro Ron Trent.

And as if that wasn’t enough, once the sunsets we’ll be moving to the on site night club to get down to the sounds of Dimitri From Paris before The Basement Boys (Karizma, DJ Spen and Teddy Douglass) take us to church with a full live performance from Jasper Street Company!

Having evolved from its beginnings in the late 1980s as a soul music weekender, the Southport Weekender events have come to be regarded as among the most musically diverse festivals in the UK calendar.

A number of rooms are still available for the weekend priced from £75. For more details go to
