Stars of The Voice to support Tom Jones at Stansted Park concert

Have your say

Last weekend was a lot of fun. The first Lost Within showcase was a huge success with some great remixes from Alex Horton and a live set from Sam Franklin.

It was topped off with the Amplified residents tearing the roof off of the Astoria which would have resulted in many heavy heads the next day.

The sun has been shining all week so tonight I highly recommend taking a trip to Southsea Castle this evening and experiencing the Champagne Bar in action from 6pm.

Not only can you sit there in the inviting atmosphere with friends sipping on a variety of champagne options, you can also try out one of their delicious grazing platters.

The chilled out musical vibes blend in perfectly and entry is free.

On your way home you can stop off at Flamingos Bar on Albert Road were local DJ and producer Kris Davies joins the residents this week.

Kris recently did a guest mix for Deep House Amsterdam and has hit more than 18,000 plays in the last week. So pop down and check out the tunes this guy has to offer until 1am.

Then tomorrow there are two options.

Firstly, Georgie Loves Martin Roth at The Barn from 7pm until 1am. Martin Roth has worked with the likes of Eric Prydz and Deadmau5 and is regularly found at the top of the Beatport charts.

He will be supported by local DJs Josh Bailey, Gus Emmett and Scottish. Entry is £8 on the door.

Secondly, Amplified Summer Sessions have invited Alexis Raphael from Hot Creations and Creche to join them in the basement with support from resident DJ Abbo from 10pm until 2am.

And don’t forget the rest of the boys playing back-to-back in the garden in a mix of Solis, Chris Vaux and Sam Bylett.

Tickets are £6, available from Resident Advisor, and for information on VIP tables email

Lastly it’s the turn of Beats and Swing to take over the Bandstand on Sunday from 1pm until 4pm.

Grab your barbecues, beers and picnic blankets and head down for an afternoon of great music in the sun.
