Special Festival DJ set will entertain the crowds at Cineworld

Cinemagoers in Shrewsbury will be treated to a live DJ set at Cineworld this week from the organisers of Shrewsbury Fields Forever Festival.

To mark the launch of the Inbetweeners 2, the sequel to the first Inbetweeners film which this time sees four teenagers hitting Australia during their gap year, there will be a special DJ set from Shrewsbury’s own Karlos Cheadle and Zack Dad.

Karlos is regularly championed by Sonny Wharton, another Shrewsbury DJ also playing at the festival and supporting Fatboy Slim this year. They will both be performing in the main dance on the Saturday of the festival at the West Mid/Shropshire Showground which takes place from September 12-14.

He will be hitting the decks alongside Kissy Sell Out, Stanton Warriors, Redlight, DJ Phantasy, Escape and headline dance act Matrix & Futurebound.

Organisers of the festival will be on hand in the Cineworld foyer with promotional materials from 6pm onwards with special ticket offers and the chance to win tickets via their ‘written in the stars’ competition named after a worldwide music charts hit by one of this year’s headliners – Tinie Tempah.

Dene Edwards, Festival Director, said: "We are really looking forward to our special DJ set at Cineworld and think it will give anyone who goes to the cinema that night a taste of some of the fun the team tries to put into the event. You can also meet the team and ask us questions.

“We still have a few acts to announce for this year’s show and are very proud to have on the likes of Karlos and Sonny joining around 100 acts, performing alongside Tinie Tempah, The Cribs, Shed Severn, John Power from Cast, Chloe Howl, Etta Bond, Superfood, John Kelly and many, many more.”

Jon Cox, duty manager at Cineworld, said: "This is a really exciting event for us to have a live DJ set in to entertain the crowds.

“We have partnered up with the festival and are offering our unlimited customers an exclusive discount to this fantastic local event. We're expecting Wednesday evening to be a very busy one so don’t forget to book your cinema tickets in advance or get there early to avoid disappointment."
