Jackmaster & The Martinez Brothers @ Elrow

Taking over the incredible Elrow stage was Brighton favourite, Jackmaster, with an hour and a half set, followed by The Martinez Brothers. Packed out to the brim, the crowd was getting wild in theme with the stage’s Brazilian decorations. Never failing to deliver, Jackmaster played banger after banger. When it was time for The Martinez Brothers to take the stage, Elrow amped it up once more with confetti canons, daring dancers and big bouncy balls for the crowd.

Welcoming yet more iconic DJs, the Koppaberg Urban Forest stage played host to The Black Madonna, followed by Heidi. The two women offered incredible music, superb mixing and great performances respectively. So if you didn’t spend your Friday evening here, where were you?

Friday night’s headliner, Fatboy Slim blew the crowd away with classic after classic, paired with incredible visuals on the big screens. Plus the superstar DJ included footage of Shoreham-By-Sea (where Wild Life takes place) as well as promotional pictures of Brighton & Hove Albion, as Slim is a Brighton fan himself.
