In the Riot Tour Bus on the Riot Connex Tour at Forbidden Festival

As the summer festival season kicks into high gear, the next stop on our exhilarating tour brought us to the breathtaking grounds of Belvoir Castle for the legendary Forbidden Forest festival. Known for its unique blend of music, nature, and unparalleled dance vibes, this festival stands as one of the country's biggest dance events, and this year, it truly lived up to its reputation.

A Fresh Look for 2024: The Riot Double-Decker Bus Debuts

The weekend was marked by a special premiere for the Riot team—the debut outing of our revamped Riot double-decker bus. Sporting a brand-new branding that screams revolution, the bus stood as a beacon of excitement and anticipation, ready to roll through the 2024 summer schedule in style. The new look didn't just turn heads; it became a central hub for festival-goers seeking hot merch and seriously good Connex flavours.

Weather Worries? Not This Time!

Leading up to the festival, there were a few jitters about the weather. With unpredictable forecasts threatening rain and potential site disruptions, we all kept our fingers crossed. But fortune favoured the brave, and as the weekend arrived, the skies cleared, paving the way for thousands of enthusiastic festival-goers to descend upon Belvoir Castle for an unforgettable weekend of music and dance.

A Stellar Lineup

The Forbidden Forest lineup this year was nothing short of spectacular. Headliners like Carl Cox, Hybrid Minds, and Patrick Topping brought the house down with killer sets that kept the crowd bouncing. The beats were relentless, the energy was electric, and the vibe? Absolutely unmatched.

But the main stage wasn’t the only place buzzing with action. Our very own Riot Noise truck stage played host to some of the most talented up-and-coming DJs. These rising stars delivered performances that left the audience buzzing and craving more. To all the incredible artists who graced our stage: you smashed it!

Riot Connex Takes Center Stage

As anticipated, the Riot team had their hands full, but even we couldn't have predicted just how popular our Connex vapes would be. From the moment the gates opened, festival-goers flocked to the Riot double-decker bus in droves. The demand for our Connex vapes surged throughout the weekend, making it clear that Connex was the flavour of the festival.

Our bus wasn’t just a stop for a quick vape, though. It became a destination. Visitors left with smiles on their faces, not only because of the banging flavours but also because they were decked out in some of our exclusive Riot merch. Pink Riot bucket hats, hand fans and ponchos were everywhere, creating a sea of vibrant pink that highlighted just how far our takeover had spread.

Merch Madness: Riot Gear Everywhere

Walking through the festival grounds, it was impossible to miss the riotous splash of pink that had seemingly taken over. Our merch was a massive hit, with fans sporting their new Riot gear with pride. Whether it was the stylish bucket hats shielding them from the sun or the Riot hand fans keeping them cool as they danced the day away, our merch was adding a pop of colour and a touch of cool to the festival’s atmosphere.

A Weekend to Remember

As the sun set on an unforgettable weekend, the Riot team couldn't help but feel a sense of pride. We came prepared to engage with the crowd and deliver an exceptional experience, but the response exceeded our wildest expectations. From the overwhelming demand for Connex vapes to the visible spread of our branded merchandise across the festival, it was clear that Riot Connex had left an permanent mark on Forbidden Forest.

Onto the Next Adventure

With Forbidden Forest now behind us, we're already looking ahead to the next stop on our summer festival tour. The excitement is building, and we can’t wait to bring the Riot experience to more festival-goers around the country. Where will we pop up next? You'll have to keep your eyes peeled to find out.

Stay tuned for more updates, and if you missed us at Forbidden Forest, don't worry—there are plenty more opportunities to join the Riot this summer.
