With a massive line-up spread across five arenas, it will keep you dancing the rest of the weekend. Holland-born DJ Fedde Le Grand and Mark Knight (above) are the main stage co-headline hosts. Fedde forged a reputation as one of the biggest names to emerge from the Dutch house scene, and has established himself as a force to be reckoned with through residencies at some of the world’s most prestigious, influential and essential clubbing institutions.
He’ll be joined by Knight, whose Toolroom Records has scored been the house DJ at Ministry of Sound, and in Ibiza, Miami, Frankfurt and New York. Knight’s worked on recent output by Faithless and Underworld, and scored himself a Grammy nomination for his work on the Black Eyed Peas’ The E.N.D. Ms Dynamite will bring her urban sounds, and Aussie drum ‘n’ bass outfit Pendulum hit Saturday night with a DJ set.
Also featuring will be disco-house sensation Maceo Plex, recently nommed as one of the top five DJs in the world; Miguel Campbell, a veteran of the UK house scene; dubstep and drum ‘n’ bass chart smasher Sub Focus; alongside MistaJam and drum ‘n’ bass legend Fabio. “We’ve got an obsessive passion for what we do. It’s about attention to detail: the artists, the sound, the visuals, the quality of the experience,” festival director Daniel May says. “This year is going to be special.”
