Cosham comes to life with Mutiny Festival 2016!

What more can you ask for on a Bank Holiday weekend than two days of blue skies and sunshine mixed with great music?

Other than a beach and crystal clear waters, there isn’t much more. Whilst King George V’s Playing fields in Cosham isn’t on a beach, it was the venue for Mutiny Festival which took place on the Saturday & Sunday of the late May Bank Holiday weekend and it delivered buckets of sunshine and good music as DJ’s and artists performed to thousands.

Whilst the Big Top and Main Stage hosted names such as Bontan, Sister Bliss, Majestic, Toyboy and Robin, Groove Armada and Celo Green the crowds of dance revellers united in their passion for dance.  The smaller set-up of the Astoria Stage which was also the Secret Disco location provided a more funky, disco vibe ideal for the sunshine carnival theme.

With very few queues at the bar and food vendors, toilet facilities which stayed relatively clean and a VIP area which not only offered great views of the main stage but offered the best toilet facilities and bar service ( huge improvement on the 2015 event at Footwell Park) a good selection of rides for the brave (or bonkers!) and plenty of space –  the event was a great success. Travel was easy too, with Cosham train station a short walk and parking at Lakeside North Harbour an even shorter walk which meant there was no hassle or worry about getting home.
