In 2014 Bugged Out will celebrate their 20-year anniversary and across the year the brand will be celebrating the significant milestone, starting with what has become their flagship event: the Bugged Out Weekender, this time back where it all began in the North of England. After two successful events in 2012 and 2013, the 2014 Bugged Out Weekender will take place on the new dates of March 7, 8 and 9th at a new location; the Pontins resort in Southport, near Liverpool.
The multi-roomed event features world renowned DJs and live acts, accommodation on site and will include pool parties and day-time activities. Evolving out of dance music institution Jockey Slut magazine (RIP) in 1994, Sankeys in Manchester became the first home to the then new Bugged Out club brand, where the likes of Daft Punk, Richie Hawtin and the Chemical Brothers played early shows. They spent five years in Liverpool from 1998 at the 3500 capacity Nation before making the move down south to Fabric and The End. For 20 years Bugged Out has thrown regular parties in Liverpool, Manchester, London, Ibiza, Milan, Barcelona and Ibiza and continues to act as a habitual destination for fans of good dance music.
