Strongbow Rooms – back at the festivals for 2003

"Get Refreshed" is the rallying cry of Strongbow fans across the UK as they descend on that big laid-back party tent at half a dozen of the best festivals of 2003.


[l-zone5]The festival circuit just wouldn’t be the same without the renowned Strongbow tent, so it’s great news that for the fifth year running, the team is back in 2003 with a brand new arena – The Strongbow Rooms.  Look out for the UK’s freshest outdoor club at:-
We Love& Homelands (24 May),
Newquay Surf Festival (26 July – 3rd August),
Pride in the Park (26th July),
Godskitchen Global Gathering (26th  July),
V Festival (17th -18th August)
Creamfields (23 August).
[r-zone3]Hosted by Resident DJs Matt Dix (Twice as Nice), Jim Byers (Bar Rumba, Soshomatch) and Ben Arnold (Bar Rumba, Dogstar), The Strongbow Rooms are guaranteed to refresh thirsty ears, throats and feet with a mashed up mix of Balearic beats, old skool hip-hop, classic disco, funky deep house and smooth sun-kissed grooves.

Special Guest DJs will also make appearances throughout The Strongbow Rooms season spicing up the mix even more. Kicking off in the special guest DJ slots at Homelands (24th May) will be the son of an original bad boy rock icon, Louis Osbourne (Café Mambo, Cream @ Amnesia, Ibiza) and the South Coast’ s very own Martin Metcalf (Kindergarten Club, Power FM).

[l-zone2]27 year old Louis Osbourne has carved his own musical niche around the world DJing across the globe over the last seven years. Rocking dance floors all over with his trademark blend of deep soulful house and melodic techno, Louis has led the way of the groove with his Ibiza residencies at Cream @ Amnesia, Café Mambo and El Divino Sunset Café, and is about to release a compilation for the prestigious DJ Mix series with New York label Blue Chip Recordings.

‘It’s an honour to be associated with The Strongbow Rooms, it’s going to be great to playing the festivals,’ says Louis Osbourne.

[r-zone1]Joining Louis Osbourne in The Strongbow Rooms will be the South Coast’s leading US house and garage connoisseur Martin Metcalf.  Martin’s radio show on Power FM every Friday is a cult airwave party that punters will be able to experience exclusively in The Strongbow Rooms.

[l-zone4]Designed to suit the mood of the moment whatever the time of day or night, The Strongbow Rooms is best described as a ‘progressive party space’. Kick off the day in the games room with table football. Chill in the afternoon on the wooden sundeck to blissed-out Balearic beats. Party on the dance floor at dusk to the sounds of The Strongbow Rooms resident DJs and special guests.

Strongbow will also be back in Ibiza this year – for more info keep your ears to the wind or simply check out the all-new Strongbow Rooms website complete with the coolest on-line table football game and special guest DJ updates at
