Bodelwyddan is set to become an unlikely mecca of dance music for just one weekend next month.

Momentum is building ahead of the Su Casa: Do Not Sleep festival, which is relocating from Conwy valley to the town’s 15th century castle on Saturday, June 2 to host world class DJs.

The festival is to transform the grounds of the ancient castle and heritage site and will feature artists Darius Syrossian, Sam Divine, George Kwali, Jon Connor, Charlie Tee, Mark Jenkyns and more.

Speaking to the Journal, South Shields house DJ Jenkyns said: “I’ve played Cardiff and Swansea before, but I’ve never played North Wales. This will be the first time I will get to to play in a real castle too, so I’m buzzing. Hopefully I can stick around afterwards and see what Bodelwyddan is about.

"It’s not one of the weirdest places I've played, but it’s definitely going to be up there with one of best."

“The club scene is starting to get quiet these days with so many new festivals popping up everywhere over the summer. A festival like Su Casa is giving the people of North Wales the opportunity to get out in the sun, enjoy some music and get on themselves on the scene.”

The festival has grown considerably since it’s UK debut at Conwy Quay in 2016, with this year’s line up the largest to date, set across four themed stages - The Lost Jungle, Techno Temple, Do Not Sleep Arena and Tropicana Ruins.

The 2017 festival, which was held at Surf Snowdonia, attracted more than 2,000 people, with this year held in the grounds of the Grade II listed castle - built in 1460 - expected to attract even larger crowds.

Dale Rankmore, Su Casa founder, said: "The Su Casa Festival 2017 exceeded all expectations. It was a special one for our team, our loyal followers and our new customers alike.

"This year we're taking it up a notch again as the festival continues to grow, showing no signs of slowing down. Once again we'll be curating unique experiences coupled with world-class dance music.

"This will be our biggest line up ever, bringing artists and clubbing brands to the area who have never played here before."

The event will also clubbing brand Do Not Sleep feature street food, bespoke art installations and body glitter art from The Gypsy Shrine. The Journal reported last month of the the festival organisers defending an online poll concerning various glittered body parts as "absolutely lighthearted" sparking anger on social media.
