Nic Fanciulli the director of the Social.
“I’ve never been more excited to announce our headliners for The Social; filled with friends, mentors, and dance music legends, it really means a lot to me.
As a kid i used to religiously follow Sasha & Digweed everywhere around the country and their compilations and music helped shape who I am today. I’ve been given many invaluable opportunities throughout my career, and being able to play alongside both of them individually over the years has definitely been one of them – they were both early supporters of mine, i’m honoured to call them both friends, and extremely proud and excited that their first show show in 8 years will be headlining The Social on Friday.
My relationship with Carl Cox is quite a public affair, most people know the ins and outs of how close we are, and I really owe a lot to him. Playing b2b with him so many times over the years is something I will never take for granted, and he remains the biggest inspiration for me as a DJ – always humble, always smiling, and consistently amazing. Since i was young i’ve been in awe of him, and he continues to impress me every time we get together. I’m super excited that my mentor, and one of my closest friends is headlining Saturday for us.”

“ Its been incredible to see the reaction from our unannounced back to back gig in London last month which took everyone by surprise, so our planned B2B set this September at The Social is set to be a massive not to be missed event in the clubland calendar.”
John Digweed (2016)
Very happy to be playing with John again and blown away by the excitement around our comeback. Its fantastic we get to do our first proper gig back at the Social festival. Last year’s was a brilliant event and so much fun. Can’t wait.
