Spawning from one of the most well-known club brands in Britain comes Detonate Festival, Nottingham's biggest underground music festival that takes place in June, with almost 50 acts descending on Colwick Country Park to bring some serious noise for the biggest bass music fans in the country. Featuring a lineup that brings together the best in drum & bass, hip-hop, dub, grime, R&B and house, there is something for everyone across the 4 stages that Detonate Festival comprises of.

The artists who play at Detonate Festival are a combination of world class superstars and the brands all-time favourites, who have played for them at their events up and down the country in Sheffield, Leeds and of course at their home in Nottingham.
