A boutique event, those behind House of Barefoot have announced that it will have a limited capacity to allow ample space for festival-goers to relax and unwind, while providing an intimate club feel on its main stage.
Festival director Jonny Stobart said: “We want to keep capacity at a level that means everyone has an amazing overall experience.
“We have no doubt that we will sell and we are sure that people will love the atmosphere and want to come back year after year.
“This event allows people to socialize, make new friends, enjoy an array of different styles of house music, and most importantly, dance. Our past events have brought people of all ages together – it really is all inclusive.
Information about Danny Howells states that he “has remained stoic in the face of the ever-changing trends and fads in dance music since breaking into the global consciousness of house music in the late 90s”.
As for Spanish DJ Henry Saiz, “his music, as well as his work as a sound designer for film and television, has always been marked as avant-garde in its approach and revolutionary in its delivery, and his sound refuses to fall into a singular category.’
And “with over 30 years of DJing, 11 albums, 30 singles and 50 remixes, a legacy of a unique and powerful personal touch, Hernan Cattaneo is a welcome addition to the House of Barefoot line-up”.
