Tramlines has added a fifth wave of acts to its 2016 lineup. The latest additions feature a genre-busting selection of DJs including David Rodigan, Mr Scruff & MC Kwasi, Craig Charles, Crazy P Soundsystem, a full live set and DJ set by Quantic, Dego, Rita Maia, The Mouse Outfit, Last Japan and many more.
Festival organisers are thrilled to announce the return of three heavyweights for 2016 after storming successes in previous years: kicking off Tramlines as it means to go on with a melting pot of funk, disco, techno and more is seismic duo Mr Scruff & MC Kwasi, who return to the legendary Leadmill for the festival’s official opening party on Thursday 21 July; original reggae selector David ‘Ram Jam’ Rodigan returns to take the reins at the o2 Academy on Friday with a bag of bass-heavy, dancehall tunes, while on Saturday night at Foundry, the funk and soul maestro Craig Charles returns after road-blocking DQ Nightclub at Tramlines 2015!
Other standout performances this year include a full live set from dance pioneers Crazy P, whose slinky underground disco and deep electronic cuts will appear as part of burgeoning local promoters Nice Like Rice’s Queens Social Club takeover on Friday.
Beat-maker Quantic will touch down at Tramlines for a total of two killer performances, headlining the 7,000 capacity Devonshire Green stage with a live set, before hot-footing it up the road to the intimate Harley for a DJ set at the venue’s Sunday night after-party.
The Banana Hill collective will take over Queens Social Club on Saturday with a selection of dancefloor-bound world beats including 4hero’s Dego and cutting-edge Lisbon DJ Rita Maia, amongst others.
The Plug nightclub is home to all things grime on Saturday night at Tramlines, with the atmospheric vibes of Last Japan, former KissFM DJ Logan Sama and upcoming MC Capo Lee all added to the bill.
Hip-hop fans are also catered for with the nine-piece hip-hop outfit, The Mouse Outfit, ready to take the roof off at Yellow Arch on Saturday night.
