Who You’ll See

Who You Can’t Miss

Boys Noise – One of the most respected names in dance music, it’s actually hard to imagine reasons not to see this talented producer/DJ. His ability to work with virtually anyone – artists as diverse as Skrillex or Snoop Dog, Boys Noise is a remarkably mealable artist who is anything but predictable.

Mat Zo – The genre defying wonder boy has seen a remarkable year of releases, stemming from his Porter Robinson collaboration ‘Easy’ as well as his recent Anjunabeats release ‘Pyramid Scheme’ feat. Chuck D. Add in his summer smash remixes of Empire of the Sun ‘Alive’ and Ellie Goulding’s ‘Burn’, and you’ll have one of the most supported artists during festival season.

Under the Radar Artist

Fehrplay – Pryda friends upcomer has seen a slew of 2013 releases in the classic Eric Prydz style. Being mentored by one of electronic dance music’s biggest acts, we expect a bright future for this budding star producer.

Who You Can Pass On

Noisia – Honestly, this tent is packed with talent through out the day, so picking someone ‘you can pass on’ here had more to do with likely time conflicts (Kyau & Albert + Dzeko and Torres anyone?) than anything wrong with Noisia. This drum step and hip hop infused trio will be a breath of originality in an otherwise crowded progressive space.
