Turn It Up. Five Mixes to Get You Rave-Ready for MiNT Festival 2018

Mint Festival 2020

Mint Festival 2020

Leeds, United Kingdom

In just a couple of weeks, MiNT Festival takes over the imposing aircraft hangars at Leeds' RAF Church Fenton for the first time.

The move means ravers will be treated to a whole new production setup, including stages inside aeroplane hangars, a shipping container arena, Arcadia's legendary Afterburner and the world's largest disco ball.

In charge of the grooving will be the likes of DJ EZ, Adam Beyer and Moodymann, who'll soundtrack a day of house, techno, disco, garage, grime and more across MiNT's multiple stages. 

And as we begin the final countdown, we picked out five mixes from five artists on this year's lineup, making sure we're all rave-ready come 22 September. Turn it up.


There aren't many individuals who could claim to have played a bigger role in the UK garage revival of recent years than DJ EZ. His sets are always full of boundless energy, mixing old school garage anthems and 2 step with more recent bass and house music.

We're in no doubt his daytime headline set inside the Arcadia Afterburner will, to put it mildly: Go. Off.

Adam Beyer B2B Ida Engberg

Techno power couple Adam Beyer and Ida Engberg have been slaying clubs and festivals all over the world, drawing fans in with their fusion of Beyer's darker Berlin sounds and Engberg's funkier take on techno. As Beyer has remarked himself, "when we play together it’s more about the groove and the atmosphere."

And on that note, here is an hour of their groovy set at DC10 in Ibiza. 

Kerri Chandler B2B Jeremy Underground

History was made at this Boiler Room back in 2016, when house stalwart Jeremy Underground went back to back with his lifelong hero Kerri Chandler. Two years on and the pair are still injecting their mix of new and old school house onto dancefloors.


Versatile DJ Skream dives into one of his favourite genres with a special disco set at MiNT Festival 2018 (in addition to his main set). Here he delivers some seriously funky vibes for a mysterious Judy. 

Peggy Gou

There aren't many DJs who can inspire crowds to take off their shoes and wave them in the air, or chant their name when they take to the stage. But that's exactly what lady-of-the-moment Peggy Gou has been doing, everywhere from her hometown Seoul to Dekmantel. 

Why? Just have a listen.

MiNT Festival will take place on 22 September 2018.
