Retro-trax presents the worlds 1st ever outdoor weekend camping festival dedicated to 100% old skool dance classics!  Over 150 djs / mcs & live acts set over 5 arenas celebrating the very best in dance music from 1986 -1999. This long overdue festival is finally happening at Bath Racecourse May 12th / 13th 2012. If you were clubbing from 1986 – 1999 then that era is one of, if not THE biggest part of your life. Everyone who was ‘in the scene’ at that time were there for the love of the music.  You were passionate about the weekends. You used to count down the days with your friends to the weekend. You travelled north, south, east and west to hear your favourite DJ. You made friends all over the UK. You became part of an underground community of like-minded people who all shared the same ideal, and that was the passion for music and clubbing. The Retro-Trax Festival is the embodiment of that time in your life. For full details check out: http://retrotraxfestival.co.uk/ .
