The South West Drum and Bass Awards


Its got a new name, new venue and new line up :)

OK people, this is big. Really big. After snow stopped play back in February, we put our thinking caps on and have worked really hard to bring you something special for the rescheduled date of the South West Drum and Bass Awards. We are stoked to announce that the Awards will now be held at the world famous Eden Project in Cornwall in conjunction with Eden's Arts Cafe on Fri 1st May.

The Eden Project is bette
r known for it's huge biomes housing collections of amazing plants, and its environmentally focused educational facilities, but on the 1st May the site will play host to some of the biggest names in drum and bass, breakbeat, jazz, funk and hip hop. This is the first time that this sort of event has happened at Eden and its safe to say that this is going to be one party you wont forget in a hurry.

The overall event is now called:

Note: This event may start and finish early by usual clubbing standards but this is the first time ever that a D'n'B / Breaks event has been held at the Eden Project, so we have to respect the neighbours regarding the noise - it's going to be loud!
So quit moaning, get out of work / college early - its the bank holiday weekend for starters and get down to Eden to be part of something truly special and have it large!
