Percolate Open Air 2017


After 5 years putting on parties and hosting stages at festivals across the UK and Europe, Percolate decided it was time to throw their first ever 1 day event – a ‘party in a park’.

Keen not to brand this as a festival the brief from the organisers envisioned an intimate community orientated affair, achieved through the production of a party wholeheartedly curated for its audience. Percolate Open Air took place in July 2017 with a focus on quality over quantity hosting several of the biggest names in house and techno – Dj Koze, Scuba and Paranoid London as well as a special b2b from Leon Vynehall and Ryan Elliot.


  • We Are The Fair sourced and secured a unique greenfield location in the heart of East London to be the home of Percolate Open Air, Stratford’s Three Mills Island. Though the island had already claimed some fame for housing the first ever Big Brother House it had never been used for a music event, and the unique location did not come without challenges! Namely producing an event for 5,000 people on an island completely surrounded by canals.


Despite being one of the wettest days of the summer the event was incredibly well received by the local community and party goers. The extraordinary surroundings, industrial backdrop and attention to detail in the event production helped the event feel like it had been designed with the audience front of mind.
