Sunday 18th September 2022
Burgess Park
12pm-10pm

Hey bbz, we are absolutely gutted to announce that due to the Queen’s passing a number of large scale outdoor events have been forcibly postponed.


We tried to fight it as much as possible but the powers that be have had the last word.
None the less, OVERFLO will be rescheduled so please be patient with us while we figure out a new date to dance. We will update you with details as soon as humanly possible.


In the meantime, for those of you who have already purchased tickets , your ticket will remain valid for the festival’s rescheduled date. We really appreciate your support and patience with this.

If you need any more information on the postponement, please click the buy tickets button and view our RA page.


Soon Come
