Back in 2009, the guys behind Mint Club in Leeds decided to have a chat with Sven Vath. They decided that once a year, he should equip the open-air fields of Temple Newsam with a sound system, a stage and some people to dance. Cocoon In The Park was born.
There have been some pretty great lineups across the years (Loco Dice, Cassy and Visionquest springs to mind – a shame about the rain that year), and veterans of the brand that are consistent throughout (Villalobos).
But 2015 is looking to be the best one yet. Innervisions front-man Dixon is a modern day favourite, and recently played an absolute blinder at Timewarp. The big star of the show is Carl Cox though. Sven Vath and Carl Cox have known each other for years, back in the day when Coxy used to come to Leeds every month to play with Vath at The Orbit in Morley.
What’s been your favourite lineup over the years?
