Getting ready to dance away his troubles, Getintothis’ Shaun Ponsonby reveals the second wave of acts for Liverpool Disco Festival 2017. 

Liverpool Disco Festival 2017 have announced their second wave of acts ahead of their festivities in May.

Among names is DJ Jazzy Jeff  who is, of course, a legendary turntablist and one half of DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince with Will Smith. He is also known for his role as Will‘s best friend Jazz in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, inarguably one of the defining television shows of it’s generation.

Other exciting names announced include Glitterbox, which will be taking over Camp and Furnace in a rare performance outside of London. Glitterbox has become one of the world’s most flamboyant and hedonistic parties, enhanced by dancers and performers, but with the crowd remaining the true stars of the show; open-minded, passionate, and encompassing all ages, colours, genders and sexual orientations.

Disco didn’t suck – Getintothis looks at disco as a social political movement 

David Morales – one of the world’s first superstar DJ’s – and Defected Records founder Simon Dunmore round off the already impressive line-up.

The event sees Liverpool Disco Festival join forces with Southport Weekender to celebrate the latter’s 30th anniversary, with Liverpool disco exponents Hustle and Croatian icons SUNcéBeat, who have all come together to present a beautiful weekend of music in the Baltic Triangle – Liverpool’s thriving cultural quarter – in the venues Constellations, Camp and Furnace, Great Baltic Warehouse, New Bird Street Warehouse, Hangar 34 and 24 Kitchen Street.
