At this year's VW Action we have two great Dance acts to play on the Friday night - DJ Summers and DJ Trademark along with The Narni Shakers.
DJ Summers has been in the music scene for over 30 years, from the dawn of House Music in the 80s. His love of DJ’ing has taken him all over Europe to play at many clubs and festivals. His musical taste is eclectic and his sets are always a journey through the many genres of the dance music scene from House to Hardcore to Acid to Techno. He was also the ‘Voice Of The Volksworld Show’ for 14 years - so it’s fair to say that his love for VWs and music go hand in hand. He played a banging set in the Fuelers Bar at last year's VW Action - so we invited him back - this time on the main stage. Enjoy!
VW Action favourite DJ Trademark returns after a few years absence - to play the 'Big Beats' Dance Tent. Watch and listen to Mark play another of his blistering dance and Drum & Bass sets. Having performed at some of the biggest and best VW shows over the past decades, Mark knows what you guys like. You can expect plenty of classics - and a few very nice surprises. Not to be missed.
Main Stage/Marquee, Friday Night.
For years now one of the most anticipated elements
of VW Action has been the Saturday night 'theme party'. The level of
participation in the fancy dress has been mindblowing. 2022's
'Halloween Party' show was particularly impressive as the marquee filled up
with all manner of scary costumes and characters. 2023 will see Saturday evening's stage dressed with Disco icons - so break out the flares and the tank tops - and especially those afro wigs.
PRIZE FOR THE BEST HEADGEAR - TWO VIP WEEKEND TICKETS FOR 2024's EVENT
WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED ON STAGE DURING SATURDAY'S 'BIG WIG PARTY'.
We're really hoping that you go the extra mile with your costumes. On past experience it's certain most visitors will.
The party kicks of with a special 'Anthems' video set, with a 'Big Wig' flavour, from Bri Vinyl who will be warming up the night for what follows... and that is one of the world's premier Disco, Soul and Funk bands - Uncle Funk's Disco Inferno playing those huge Disco/Soul anthems that everyone appears to love singing along and getting down to. Definitely not to be missed.
Jensen D Groover will be your host for the remainder of the evening, along with the Narni Shakers. Expect a full on party vibe with lots of House/Dance tunes from Jensen this year - and sing-along tunes to keep the party moving - and as always - expect the unexpected!
DJ Adey S will be manning the decks to keep the energy levels up - playing Rock classics all night.
FROM THE ASHES UNPLUGGED (Fuelers Bar, Friday Evening 9.00pm)
VW Action regulars, From The Ashes normally play a full electric set on the main stage, for 2023 - acoustic anthems we all love to sing along to. Not to be missed.
A.W.O.L. (Fuelers Bar, Friday Evening 10.30pm)
Ex-Spider lead-guitarist Dave 'Sniffa' Bryce brings his band A.W.O.L. to VW Action to play Anthemic Rock and Boogie at its very best. Please don't miss them.
For the last couple of years, we have turned the Fuelers Bar into a 'secret warehouse' - parodying the ‘secret raves’ of the nineties, it has proved to be a great success and we're doing it again. Of course, it's not 'secret' nor 'illegal' - nor do we expect a visit from the boys in blue - but hopfully we can create a vibe that oldschool dance fans will enjoy.
The evening opens with DJ Kerry Nolan - 'Cyclone Radio' and 'Dubs FM' DJ, Kerry makes his VW Action debut playing Old School House Classics. Kerry will set the tone for the evening - and is swiftly followed by the legendary DJ Flipside.
We are very pleased to welcome DJ Flipside to VW Action. The 'Centreforce' and 'Eruption' DJ, makes his VW Action debut - and he promises to keep you dancing till the cops come!!
Fuelers Bar, Saturday evening from 8.00pm
In keeping with the VW Action 2023 theme for Saturday evening, starting at 00.15am in the Fuelers Bar, the VW Action Movie for 2023 is the iconic 70s film, 'Saturday Night Fever' - John Travolta, white suit, The Bee Gees, Disco! - 'nuff said!
You will need to bring your deckchair, sleeping bag or blanket - and in the tradition of previous 'sleepovers', we'll provide some free popcorn and soda. Enjoy!
