As the revellers awoke in their chalets on Saturday at Butlins, there was an unusual quiet.

Ordinarily the resort is geared up for children and cheery all-day entertainment, but at Bugged Out Weekender, the fun happens when the sun is down.

That said, a disco-fuelled pool party hosted by Jackmaster in the afternoon provided a great start to the day for anyone who’d woken in time, with waterslides, inflatables, and a wave pool.

Night came quickly, bringing with it what was for many the best line-up of the weekend. Novelist’s set incorporated grime across the years and was tight, well-mixed and raw.

In the main room, Armand Van Helden was a highlight, with house music fans across the generations going crazy for his intense, bouncy set.

Following him was a back-to-back set by Skream, Jackmaster, Seth Troxler and Eats Everything, rightly one of the most highly anticipated parts of the festival.

Queues tailed out of the venue doors and into the Skyline Pavilion, with patient partygoers willing it to speed up.

Hours later, Saturday closed at 7am with Artwork in the Rosso Lounge, ordinarily a sedate coffee bar, transformed into a raucous den.

Throughout the weekend, the crowds were friendly and happy, focused purely on the music.
