This year the Dance stage is celebrating its most diverse range of quality, multi-genre artists to date. Hand-picked by Aliji the line-up is sparkling with dance-scene legends and upcoming stars. With the intention of reaching out to a wider audience, the top acts from an immense range of genres will be tearing up the dance tent at Sunrise this year.
