DJ Icon Sasha Joins Line-Up For North East Jubilee Weekender Festival               

Sasha and John Digweed, Together Again In June.

Internationally renowned DJ, Producer and house pioneer Sasha has been announced as the latest icon to join the lineup for House of Barefoots Jubilee Weekender, a brand new boutique dance music festival taking place in Stamfordham, Northumberland from the 2 to the 4th June 2022. 

With over 200,000 monthly Spotify listeners, the Grammy award nominee took over with his Last Night on Earth parties around the globe, Sasha has brought the greatest line-ups to party-goers around the world. He has hit the world-renowned Space Ibiza with a monthly LNOE residency, which showcased the likes of Scuba, Heidi, Magda and of course Sasha himself. He also hosted his first festival arena with Last Night on Earth at SW4. 

Sasha will share the stage with frequent collaborator John Digweed, a dance music legend in his own right. The superstar duo joined forces in 1993 when acid house was at the height of its popularity. Since then, the pair have toured globally bringing their innovative approach to DJing to some of the world’s biggest venues and festivals. 

After a seemingly never ending number of artist announcements, already added to the lineup are tech-house icon James Zabiela, South America’s most successful DJ Hernan Cattaneo, Bristolian legend Nick Warren and acclaimed Spanish selector Henry Saiz. 

James Zabiela is a household name on the UK club scene. A technical wizard, the Southampton native has a command over the decks that few of his contemporaries can match. Making full use of the technology in front of him, he plays the decks like a musical instrument, utilising loops, live editing and effects to craft a DJ set that goes far beyond mixing. Over his two-decade career, Zabiela’s idiosyncratic sound has taken him across the US, South America, Asia and Europe. 

Hernan Cattaneo is a founding father of the underground house scene, known by electronic music fans simply as ‘El Maestro’, Cattaneo is deemed one of the most successful DJs to come out of South America. With more than 30 years of DJing, 11 albums, 30 singles and 50 remixes under his belt, Cattaneo has shown no signs of slowing down and remains one of the go-to acts for some of the world’s biggest festivals. 

Nick Warren, meanwhile, is an English DJ and record producer. He is best known as a member of the electronic music duoWay Out West, his record label and global live events company, The Soundgarden, and for his acclaimed albums released in the Global Underground series. 

Offering camping, glamping and pitches for caravans and motorhomes, the Jubilee Weekender promises to offer a full festival experience on an intimate scale. The site will feature a stage with a state-of-the-art sound system, street food vendors and fully licensed bars. Glampers will also have access to showers.  

A boutique event, House of Barefoot organisers have chosen to limit the festival capacity to allow ample space for festival-goers to relax and unwind while providing a club-like feel at its main stage. 

Festival director Jonny Stobart commented: “You might expect to see a line up like this in cities like Berlin, New York, London and major festivals like Creamfields and Soundgarden with tens of thousands of people in attendance.  “Imagine a line-up like this with only 2000 capacity. This is exactly what we’ve created with House of Barefoot. We want to give people the opportunity to see some of the best DJs in the world in an intimate, relaxed atmosphere.”
