We bring you... WHOA! STOCK: A NYE 09/10 Boutique Festival Experience

This year sees the 40th anniversary of the birth of the festival of festivals, Woodstock. To celebrate, this New Years Eve, Mono Bar and Rhino Club are teaming up with us here at Say Whoa to put on Southampton's premier boutique festival experience in the heart of the city, without the sound restrictions, the mud and all at an affordable price. You can expect and intimate and friendly club experience, with a big room carnival party atmosphere.

We've worked hard to put on an eclectic selection of music so there is something for everyone to enjoy. The vast soundscape will include classic hip-hop, soul, funk, boogie, mash ups, party breaks, electro, house, fidget, Baltimore club, dubstep and everything in between. This will be spread across two venues and four stages with plenty of entertainment bridging them all in true festival style.

This is a brand new and fresh approach to New Year celebrations in Southampton and we can't wait to share it with you.

Here is a little taster of what you can expect:

... And Friends Stage

*** If you are interested in playing a set on the night, send ‘Say Whoa!’ a message on Facebook and we’ll get right back to you ***

Say Whoa is all about bringing people together and with this in mind they have created the ‘... and friends stage’. This stage, located downstairs in Rhino Club, is an audio lottery as the lineup is as broad as a bean. We’ve pulled in all our close friends who also happen to be great DJ’s to play a set each of their favourite music spanning a vast array of genres. Already on the bill we have Back 2 Basics resident and party master Ben Owens. We are also very excited to have Deejay Budd coming down to play a seriously cheese free hip hop set digging out all that good stuff from around '92.

Located behind the Rhino Main Stage, you’ll find our magical little marketplace. Here you can get yourselves a whole host of goodies including cakes, your face painted, fancy dress/ accessories, free energy drink after 3am, glow sticks and a few more surprises!

Connecting the two venues will be Winchester Street. We have a whole host of surprises for you including festival decor, lighting, a smoking area that will be second to none this year and loads more fun surprises and entertainment TBA.

We are still working on a few things but as soon as they are confirmed we will let you know.
