Exceptional talent in an exceptional setting 

The Big Beach Weekender 
from the producers of The Woodland Sessions 


The Island's biggest stand alone dance night returns after the huge success of Woodland Sessions Dance in 2022, when nearly 2000 ravers of all ages enjoyed immense sets from DnB superstars Sigma and Dimension plus the incredible Izzy Trixx and Shufflah, Frizza, and Will Ball - 3 of the Island's best young DnB DJ's, and regulars at Shufflah's very own Pressure nights.  

Two years later, and with drum n bass more popular than ever, The Big Beach Weekender brings Andy C an absolute legend of UK dance music to the Island, for his first visit in 10 years (Andy last played Bestival here on the Isle in 2014). Andy will be accompanied by his regular MC sidekick
Tonn Piper

Supporting Andy C will be Lens, one of DnB’s hottest talents from the new wave of female DJ's that are taking the scene by storm, with Dynamite MC returning after his sensational performance with Sigma in 2022, and a collection of the Island's finest, as detailed below.
