All systems are go for what is set to be the biggest clubbing festival Norfolk has ever seen.
Summerfest, kicking off at the Norfolk Showground at 4pm on Saturday September 18, will feature over 60 DJs and five main arenas covering a spectrum of house music, plus drum & bass.
The event has been organised by what will be familiar names to clubbers - Pam's House, Frantic, Rumble, Formation, Ahead and Miss Moneypenny's. It's billed as "the last dance festival of the summer", has space for 8000 and runs for 14 hours.
Pam's House and Frantic will be operating in the massive exhibition hall at the showground, while the others will be in purpose-built big tops. There will also be a fun fair with bungee and inverse jumps, dodgems and more.
Highlights of the bill include three-and-a-half hour set from Erick Morillo, and a live set from Shapeshifters who hit number one in July with Lola's Theme – featuring vocals by gospel singer Cookie.

Organisers have issued a warning over forged tickets, which have been sold in East Anglia for the same price as real ones. One description was that they were printed on the type of paper that is often used for flyers.
Summerfest promoter Ryan Matthews said: "The team behind Summerfest 2004 have been organising large scale events for over 10 years and always ensure high security tickets are sold for our parties.
"We are urging clubbers not to accept any tickets from unauthorised outlets and to contact the Summerfest head office if they are offered any.
"The official Summerfest 2004 tickets are completely untransferable. Any forgeries will be spotted on the door and bearers will not be allowed entry to the event."
A list off official outlets for Summerfest 2004 tickets is supplied on the Summerfest 2004 flyer or its website, or contact the Summerfest information line on 0121 224 7764
Outlets include Soundclash, Asylum and the Blue Jean Company in Norwich; Revolution in Diss; Prism Leisure in Yarmouth; Red Pill Records in King's Lynn.
