Andy C, Sub Focus, Flava D, Mason Collective, Big Miz, Friend Within, Salute & more taking over Palmer Park in June

Stories In The Park is all set to return to Reading’s Palmer Park for a third superb edition on Saturday June 18th. After Chase & Status headlined a huge sell-out year in 2021, Stories is back in 2022, once again boasting two stages of the most cutting edge international DJs from the worlds of drum & bass, bassline, garage, house and techno, this year’s headliners include Andy C, Sub Focus, Flava D, TS7, Mason Collective, Big Miz, Friend Within, Salute and more to come. This year is already set to be another sell-out year and tickets are on sale now, starting at just £20 and available here:

This proudly independent festival has made a huge impact in a short space of time. The first two editions set a high standard, with a real focus on high end production, loud and proud sound systems and line-ups that offered something fresh for the region. The two high-spec stages have their own carefully considered look, sound and feel, with one covering drum & bass and baseline, and the other delving into the worlds of house and techno.

This year, 5000 people will roll into Palmer Park, a historic green space in the city surrounded by trees and with plenty of freedom to roam. As well as the two stages of music, a wealth of street food vendors and plenty of well stocked bars will be on site to keep you fuelled across the weekend. The festival comes from an experienced team of promoters who run seven weekly club nights and over 40 one off events every year, so there is nothing they don’t know about putting on edgy, exciting parties for young and hedonistic music lovers.

Says the Director, Toby Mullins, “This is just the beginning for Reading’s brand new festival, Stories In The Park. We have plans to take it to the highest possible level and deliver the biggest live acts and DJs in the world.”

That rings true with this year’s line-up which features Ram Records boss Andy C, DnB heavyweight Sub Focus, the queen of all things bass Flava D, plus UK chart topper Nathan Dawe who is best known for his 2020 hit “Lighter” featuring KSI. Add in bassline and niche innovator TS7, bass, hip-hop, rap and jungle mixologist Pat Nazemi, rising Manchester talent Salute, Glaswegian house, techno and disco selector Big Miz, the party starting Mason Collective and ever popular Friend Within, you have a mouthwatering cross-section of talents.

This promises to be the most epic Stories In The Park yet, so make sure you’re a part of it.
