A Saturday in the park in early summer might usually mean picnic blankets under a tree, children playing in the grass and peaceful, serene sounds. This past Saturday in London’s Boston Manor Park was anything but. In its third year, Junction 2 brought 10 hours of techno to London, and the lineup was stacked. Nina Kraviz, Tale of Us, Mind Against and so many more played pulsating techno sets throughout the park. The real headliners however, were Drumcode boss Adam Beyer and techno OG Carl Cox playing a b2b set – for the first time ever.
The best. @realAdamBeyer @CARLCOXOFFICIAL

While we weren’t there to catch the set, we’ve heard it was absolutely life changing. Normally, watching your friend’s pixelated festival snaps can be annoying, but in these uploaded YouTube videos by a few lucky attendees, you’re left wishing they recorded the entire thing. The lighting and stage production is phenomenal, and enough to leave you having FOMO for the next year. But watching two absolute legends play off each other’s sounds while battling it out is salivating.
Check out the clips below and don’t get too jealous.
