They join an already impressive line up of house and techno talent, including Riton, Dirtybird co-founder Justin Martin, Andhim, Defected stalwart Sonny Fodera and a special Doorly & Friends takeover, featuring fellow Dirtybird head honcho Claude VonStroke, Derrick Carter, Will Tramp and many more.

Head past the fairground and you’ll find the intimate genre-bending lounge space Trash Manor, where funk meets punk, hip-hop hangs with house, and anything goes! Announced today, and bringing the disco on Friday night, is Chimpo, of BBC Radio 1Xtra’s LEVELZ, whilst King of the 80’s electro scene Greg Wilson will play out the encore on Sunday.

Live at sacred dance site The Ring will be UK DMC Champ JFB, electro-swing producer Jamie Berry, hip-hop group Credit to the Nation and house DJ Sacha Schwarz. Apexape will be mixing house & bass, and Scotland’s Shaka Loves You are expected to pile on the funk.
