This weekend marks the 2016 edition of The Social Festival, a house and techno-focused event taking place at the Kent County Showground over Friday and Saturday. The festival has invited a wide range of UK-based and international DJs to play across it's six separate stages, with the obvious highlight being a back-to-back set from legends Sasha and John Digweed on Friday at The Barn. Other exciting performances not to be missed include a rare set from UK drum & bass DJ Clifford Joseph Price (a.k.a. Goldie), who will play alongside a host of his contemporaries like Roni Size and High Contrast on Saturday at Bamboo Village. Also make sure to check out the XLR8R curated Stables area, which will feature sets from George Fitzgerald, Bicep, Monkey Safari, Gerd Janson, and many more.

On Saturday night in San Francisco, renowned promoters As You Like It will return to Monarch for a nightlong showcase of eclectic electronic sounds. Unfortunately, headliner and Geigling contributor Vril will not be making the party due to visa issues, but a performance from Interdimensional Transmissions mainstay Israel Vines will be sure to keep attendees moving until the early hours of the morning. Vines will play alongside Patrick Gill of Deeplabs and AYLI’s own MOSSMOSS.

And on Sunday, Piknic Electronik returns to the Parc Jean-Drapeau with a top-notch soundtrack for the evening. For the 19th edition of the season, organizers have booked Kompakt artist Weval for a headlining performance. Weval will play alongside up-and-coming Russian selector Julia Govor, among several other local Quebec DJs. This one’s not to be missed.
