Fatboy Slim releases 20th anniversary Big Beach Boutique deluxe box set

Fatboy Slim has released a deluxe box set celebrating the 20th anniversary of the infamous Big Beach Boutique Party.

On 13th July 2002, more than 250,000 ravers — twice the size of Brighton’s population — gathered on the beachfront for the free event to watch Fatboy Slim, in what was described as the “biggest event the UK has ever seen”.

Now, two decades later, the DJ and producer — real name Norman Cook — has today unveiled ‘Right Here, Right Then,’ a deluxe box set comprising multiple recordings of the original set, a brand new DJ mix, a DVD of the original concert, a 48-page, 12” book with exclusive photos and a foreword penned by Cook, and more. Stream the digital version below.

The release of the boxset comes a month on from Cook sharing a mix to mark 20 years since the historic festival. He is also currently working on a new documentary to celebrate the anniversary of the momentous event.

“I think I was too stressed on the day about crowd safety to really take it all in, to fully enjoy the experience,” said Cook. “Now I feel I can look back at the footage, remember the tunes, that sunset, my home seafront looking like a carnival in Brazil, so many beautiful people having the time of their lives, I have never seen such joyous madness, such good-natured abandon. A wise man once described me as ‘a shepherd of moments’”

In May this year, Cook announced a new festival in Somerset with a line-up featuring Groove Armada, DJ Paulette and the actor-turned-DJ Idris Elba, as well as Jodie Harsh, Dance System, Horse Meat Disco, Flava D, Raw Silk, Bklava, Syreeta, and more.
