Annual weekend long festival the Southport Weekender have revealed the line up for their 2014 installment, due to take place this May.
Started back in 1987, the event is the UK’s biggest and most respected annual black music event, taking place over three days at Butlins in Minehead. Usual suspects such as New Jersey Deep House godfather Kerri Chandler, British soul boy Phil Asher, recent YouTube sessions contributor Gilles Peterson and DJ’ing legend Greg Wilson all return to Southport this year to drop soul heavy selections to the devoted crowd of regulars. They are joined by a bevvy of Hyponik favourites, including Hessle Audio boss Ben UFO, the Eglo Records pairing of Floating Points and Alex Nut, UKG maestro DJ EZ and the multi-talented Andrew Ashong.
