NLSF 2018 PROGRAMME

The North Lancs DJ Collective is a group of Soul music lovers whose taste spreads across all genres and across all eras of Soul music. That’s what makes our Festival different and so special.


From its humble beginnings decades ago, Soul music has evolved and morphed in style, tempo, instrumentation and format, and many of our DJ’s have followed this same journey.

So whether you prefer 50’s & 60’s RNB, Motown, 70’s Northern or Disco, 80’s Smooth Grooves and Club Classics, 90’s Hip Hop or The Noughties Modern Soul through to contemporary releases, you’ll always find something to suit your taste in one of our 3 rooms over the 3 days!

You’ll also be able to listen to all formats so whether vinyl singles or albums, CD or electronic downloads, ALL Soul music will be available to be played.


In our Collectors Room, we encourage our DJ’s to play some lesser known tracks not necessarily aimed at the dance floor but for your aural pleasure too, and our daytime Chill-Out sessions will certainly help with recovery from the dancefloor exploits from the previous evening!


The North Lancs DJ Collective - bless ‘em. We couldn’t do it without them.
