The decision to launch a brand new festival is not one to take lightly. With a saturated market, especially around dance music focused events, it's difficult to garner the right momentum to make it work in your inaugural year. Hide&Seek Festival however, managed to do everything right for the launch of their truly unique little festival. 

Taking place in the grounds of Capesthorne Hall, a Neoclassical country house near the village of Siddington, the festival's four stages sat within the acres of the beautiful picturesque Cheshire countryside. The carefully selected line up offered up the very best in house and techno, with sets from Jeremy Underground, Margaret Dygas, Jamie 3:26 and Nicolas Lutz.

The attention to detail elevated the production, and not once did we queue for longer than a few minutes for drinks or the toilets. Well organised, well executed and well received; Hide&Seek Festival proved that if done right, there's still space for a new festival to join the circuit. 

Take in some of the best photos from the 2019 festival as we impatiently await details of next year's event...
