▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Following an incredible three years of DISTRICT, we are ready to throw a truly epic party of unrivalled proportions this year in Southampton, to both initiate the new Freshers into our world of crazy alt partying, and also thank our loyal DISTRICT regulars for being so amazing!

Two years ago, we hosted our first ALT BALL, and welcomed down some amazing acts to join us on the stage at Engine Rooms, and this year we’re set to do things bigger and better than ever before!

HEADLINE DJ SET: MODESTEP
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

If you’re looking for the most incredible alternative and EDM crossover DJ set around, you won’t get much better than Modestep! Boasting huge singles like Sunlight, Show Me a Sign and Another Day and one of the most powerful sounds of the last decade, these guys have been absolutely killing it all over the World, performing both full band sets and huge live DJ sets to hundreds of thousands!

Expect one of the most high energy experiences you’ve ever witnessed, with one hell of a light show, combined with drum & bass, dubstep and rock influenced sounds, and the vocal and MC duties of Josh Friend soaring over the music. This will be epic!

MALLORY KNOX DJ SET
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

These guys truly need no introduction. Mallory Knoxhave been working their way to the top of the UK pop rock scene for the last few years, and our now playing huge sold out shows all across the country in some enormous venues, as well as playing some of the biggest festivals around.

You’ll know the band for their singles such as Lighthouse, Ghost in the Mirror, Getaway, Shout at the Moon and Giving It Up, and with Mikey and the guys heading down ready to party hard with you, this will be a DJ set to remember!

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
OUR HOLLOW, OUR HOME DJ SET
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

We’re incredibly excited that the boys in Our Hollow, Our Home are all going to be heading down to this event, and taking over the main stage to spin a DJ set full of alternative, metalcore and rock anthems!

These guys have been absolutely killing it lately, with their debut album receiving rave reviews and their cover of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ getting almost half a million views so far on YouTube. You’re looking at Southampton’s new kings of metalcore!

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
OUTDOOR INDIE STAGE & BBQ
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

We’re making this year’s ALT BALL a truly all-round experience, making sure there’s something for everyone, and we’re very pleased to announce that there will be an outdoor indie DJ stage and professional BBQ right through until 2am!

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
CANCER RESEARCH UK
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

All profit we make from the ALT BALL 2017 will be donated to Cancer Research UK, a charity very close to our hearts.

Not only have family members of ours suffered from this horrible disease, but we are also aware that it has directly affected people who come along to our events too, something that’s almost unimaginable at such a young age.
