To mark our traditional June date, Junction 2 can announce a one-off online and radio event on Saturday 6th June 2020. Welcome to J2v…
J2v will take place in 2 worlds. There is our world, a land of rules and gravity. And there is the world we are creating. J2v will thrust the underground dance community together in both, merging the digital world with the natural and blending realities.
For this six-hour broadcast, J2v will reconnect our community from the safety of their homes. Taking the same dedicated and passionate mindset as we’ve applied to the festival itself since day one, J2v will go beyond the usual DJ streams in trademark fashion. We aim to make our J2v a 3D digital setting for Junction 2's dedicated fan base.
Linking with our brand partners and sponsors to create an interactive experience, you’ll have the option to tune into J2v via webcast or radio. Our website will serve as the central 3D hub, although you'll also have the option of joining through your favourite social media platforms.
You can expect some of the world class artists who have helped define the sound and identity of Junction 2 throughout its history. The DJs selected were either set to play this year’s festival or have played at past editions. Each will be providing sets exclusively for J2v.
More than a dozen of the planet’s finest house and techno artists will be spread across three unique ‘stages’. In keeping with the Junction 2 spirit, these stages will have their own visuals, vibe and aesthetic and you are free to flit between them or remain stationary at your own leisure. ‘The Console in association with Relentless’, ‘The Hex in association with Asahi Super Dry’ and ‘The Vault’ will allow for real-time peer-to-peer engagement, boosted by immersive effects we are confident you’ll enjoy. More detailed information will be released on these in the coming weeks.
Hosted by long-time Junction 2 collaborators Drumcode, it won’t be difficult to identify The Console when navigating the grid. Eight spires with marble-shaped stacks form an octagonal perimeter around the dancefloor. In the centre, sits a pyramid on top of which a globe stage rotates. No matter where you are standing, everybody benefits from equally blessed visibility.
In addition to prize giveaways and merchandise, we’ll also be using this unprecedented online gathering to raise much needed funds for the charities Care Workers Charity, Refuge, The Outside Project and Trussell Trust foodbanks; these are all close to our heart in these unprecedented times. We hope you can join us…DONATE
