As one of the most revered electronic music labels on the planet, Sven Väth’s Cocoon imprint has been releasing cutting edge house and techno for almost 15 years, with Cocoon In The Park having now run since 2009. For the people of Leeds and the masses who flock there from far and wide, the annual clubbing calendar would not be complete without Cocoon’s yearly open-air event, run in association with Leeds’ own prosperous clubbing institutions, System and Mint Club; Cocoon In The Park. Every year mid-July, a single stage is erected in the grounds of Temple Newsam, a stately home on the outskirts of the city centre. It is on that stage that a number of Cocoon’s heroic DJs, alongside System’s long standing residents Annie Errez and Bobby O’Donnell, play to the thousands of music fans who religiously attend this event every year, as amongst the clubbing community, the quality of this annual gathering is no secret.
