Groove is in the heart! The Groove Garden has been the funk/soul/disco/house cornerstone of Standon Calling for the last ten years and has played host to some incredible DJ sets from the likes of DJ Maseo from De La Soul, Crazy P, Pete Herbert & Dicky Trisco.

Curated by Standon’s “patron saint” Kid Fiesta you would normally find the Groove Garden nestled in by the pool, however this year it’s hopping over the hedge, rolling down the hill and spreading out under the trees into an all new geodesic dome area which promises to be roomier, funkier and due to a later finish time, a whole lot more raucous!

Bringing the heat on Friday night are sure-shot party starters The Nextmen who will be firing out all manner of beat-based-bangers.  Saturday sees the undisputed re-edit king The Reflex, whose “Re-Visions” work has won him fans including Nile Rodgers, Noel Gallagher and Jazzy Jeff. Then on Sunday, there’s no rest as Aussie disco maestro Dr Packer returns after blowing us away with his disco groove sound track which has seen him welcomed into the Defected fold along with a residency at Ibiza’s GlitterBox.
