Big Chill started as a set of parties thrown in Islington’s famed Union Chapel in the early 90s. Since then, it’s moved to bigger pastures, and in 1995 it became the UK’s go-to festival for ambient and chilled out dance music. This year, the festival appears to be widening it’s audience; still offering a chilled vibe, but opening the festival up to a greater range of musical genre. The Chemical Brothers, Kanye West and incredible Mexican guitar duo: Rodrigo y Gabriela, are set to headline the festival across 3 days, and they’ll be joined by a highly versatile lineup of EDM artists, world musicians and comics, it’s set to be an awesome weekend.
