Basement Jaxx to play Colour Festival @ Splott Warehouse

9 June 2016

The Color Festival is back at Splott Warehouse this August 2016 and organisers, Little Big Foot Promotions, are urging people to snap up tickets as they are selling fast (well, with Basement Jax headlining, it’s no surprise).

Tickets cost between £21.99 and £74.49, so it may be worth checking out the video of last year’s event to make sure it’s your cup of tea before pressing the buy button:

All of the early release tickets have been sold, so if you are interested in donning your white togs and getting technicolour, sign up to the mailing list and be prepared to act fast when the next round of tickets are released.

£21.99 will get you a standard ticket, which doesn’t include any colour bags though you can buy bags on the night.  Entry rules seem quite strict, as is the age policy of over-18’s only (no ID, no entry).  No alcohol, food or nitrous oxide (how times change!) can be taken into the gig, or any commercial filming equipment though personal mobiles are fine.

Organisers are advising people to arrive early, probably hoping to avoid the issues at last year’s Day of the Dead Halloween party as thousands of party-goers tried to gain entry to the venue around the same time – (though this wasn’t the only Halloween party in the news in Cardiff last year for issues with queueing – an article on the Gair Rhydd website (Cardiff University’s student paper) reported issues with the queue for Halloween Faux at Y Plas nightclub after unprecedented turn-out for a Halloween event –

Splott Warehouse has increasingly hosted festival and party events over the past few years with some great feedback on social media.  It’s certainly fantastic from a local’s perspective to have such vibrant, high-profile events running out of a Splott venue with a world-renown headliner like Basement Jaxx.


Dresscode: WHITE 18+ only (no I.D, no entry)
