Taking over a safari park for a weekend full of house, dance and electronic music. The Zoo Project Festival welcomes itself to Port Lympne Animal Park in Kent. Starting up in Ibiza and preparing itself for its first year in the UK, The Zoo Project hosts a mix of djs and producers across 9 main stages.

Over 600 acres of picturesque grounds home to Black Rhinos, Siberian and Indian tigers as well as the ‘Palace of Apes’ (the world’s largest gorrilarium). Nine stages surround the area such as the DJ Mag stage, Never say Never stage and Ostgutton stage which will bring festival go-ers the likes of Julio Bashmore, Sasha and Ben Klock.

“I am really thankful to be playing at such an illustrious event with many recognised artists that are currently contributing to the underground house and techno music scene. Only the Zoo Project would be quirky enough to pull off a rave in a safari park in the UK its simply genius, oozing with class and my hats off to them.” Lee Pennington, resident of Ibiza’s Zoo Project and founder of house music brand *riffraff.

With tickets allowing a full weekend pass to the grounds of the safari park as well as camping, it’s surely an event not to be missed. Ranging from £60.00 for a day ticket to only £89.99 for a weekend, its one of the UK’s cheapest festivals with such an impressive line up.
