Escape to Freight Island has now revealed programming for September and October, as it continues on its quest to become one of the world’s leading food, drink and entertainment supervenues.

This ever-inventive space is presenting a wide array of entertainment to complement its visionary food market, including DJs and live music performances, dance, comedy nights, film screenings and family-focused happenings.

From September, the venue will be open seven days a week, and the programming will see headliners including David Rodigan, Joe Goddard (Hot Chip), DJ Yoda, Craig Charles, La Discothèque, Bugged Out, and the return of the legendary Electric Chair.

Entertainment earlier in the week will see the launch of a music and cultural film night, with carefully curated DJ slots from the likes of Bugged Out, plus a new Tuesday night partnership from The Comedy Store starting in September.

Live music in The Ticket Hall will see new shows from The Untold Orchestra playing the music from artists such as Amy Winehouse, Prince, Paul Simon and Radiohead. Meanwhile, weekend line-ups featuring stella talent from PBR Streetgang, Crazy P Soundsystem, James Holroyd and The Warehouse Project resident Krysko. With later opening hours they’ll be some exciting golden hour headliners and fun interactive Saturday events from Guilty Pleasures, Massaoke and The Cuban Brothers.

Rumour has it there’ll be a few secret parties going on as well as some partnerships from events such as Repercussion, Homobloc and the return of the legendary Electric Chair

Sundays will have a family focus, starting from 10am, with entertainment from The Playhouse Project, Our Kids Social, Born to Be Wild Child, Baby Rock Sampler and more.

Bookings are now open. You can book via the link below.
