Full Circle is an exciting new boutique music and arts festival which will take place in Coronation Park over the August Bank Holiday weekend!

It is offering Islanders the chance to discover cutting-edge international musicians and DJs from all over the world as well as emerging local talent alongside BBC Introducing.

The organisers behind the event were previously involved in Streetlife and Reasons festivals, which featured memorable appearances from the likes of Soul II Soul, Primal Scream, Gentleman's Dub Club, Wilkinson and plenty more over their 5 year run. Suze Rosser and Ben Newman have taken an environmental stance with their approach to this event, collaborating with local charities and eco incentivised businesses such as ReWild Durrell, Jersey Recovery College and Evie Bikes, with all proceeds from the event being split among their chosen charity partners. 

As part of the transportation plans for festival goers over the weekend, ticket holders are encouraged to join DJ 'Gus F' and ride in a disco convoy, using one of the rented bikes to get them there or indeed, their own bike.

"This fun incentive we hope will raise awareness for islanders to think more consciously when getting to and from destinations or events in Jersey. We wanted this to be an immersive part of the festival experience, the tunes will be blaring from Gus' bike, gearing people up for what they are about to experience on a much bigger level once they arrive at Coronation Park. It's all about the good vibes and doing something great for the planet whilst having a whole lot of fun." Says Suze Rosser.

"This event is all about creating an experience which celebrates Jersey's local talent as well as some of the most forward thinking acts on the planet. We have really thought out the box with our planning, providing arts initiatives and partnering with powerful charities. This, combined with the carefully curated line-up should be the perfect combination for a memorable weekend, one of many more to come." Explains Ben Newman

He goes on to add "Ultimately our aim is to be recognised as one of the leading festivals of our size in Europe and we have already made waves in the electronic music community, being highlighted by Resident Advisor (arguably the world's most important electronic music website) as one of their top 10 festivals in August, globally.
