Providing the beats over the weekend will be rising grime star DOT ROTTEN and collaborator RUSSO, Brit hip-hop heroes STEREO MCs and Example’s Unorthodox pal WRETCH 32. And bathe in the sun-kissed pop delights of ELIZA DOOLITTLE.
Plugging in and rocking out will be YOUNG GUNS and SKINDRED, with THE CORAL, ATHLETE, MYSTERY JETS, THE SUNSHINE UNDERGROUND and JON FRATELLI dishing out the indie hits. Dreaming Of You? Wires? Young Love? Put You In Your Place? Baby, We’re Refugees? Whoever gets you dancing, there’s going to be a huge sing-along festival moment in there for everyone.
