Still focused on championing the vital present and future sounds of London, this year's festival returns to Shoreditch's Haggerston Park for a full two-day weekender on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June. Fitting the expanded format it's set to be even bigger, bringing together names from across the capital and beyond including Newham Generals, iLoveMakonnen, Benga, The Square, Geko, A.G. Cook, Loefah, dBridge, Laurel Halo, Sam Supplier, Josey Rebelle, Kamixlo, Murlo and more, with many more to be announced in the coming months.
Rinse and Born & Bred will be hosting many of those artists for whom Rinse provided a vital early platform. Headlining are Newham Generals, the legendary duo of D Double E and Footsie whose peerless music and fiercely independent attitude has made them a huge influence on subsequent generations of grime MCs and DJs, including South London young guns The Square, who are also on the bill. Grime's current rude health is reflected throughout the weekend's line-up, which also features veteran virtuoso DJ Sir Spyro, Boxed's Mr. Mitch and Logos, Murlo and Mssingno. Rinse is also equally famed for its role in the evolution of dubstep, represented at the festival by two of it's pioneers,Benga and Youngsta.
Yet Rinse and Born & Bred 2016's line-up also stretches beyond its home city to recognise the truly global reach of London's influence. Also headlining is Atlanta rap star ILoveMakonnen, who last year followed up his huge Drake collaboration 'Tuesday' with his acclaimed ILOVEMAKONNEN 2 mixtape. Elsewhere on the line-up are other artists who've drawn influence from the mutant DNA of UK bass-driven music and woven it into striking new shapes. They include uncompromising US-born, Berlin-based club explorer Lotic, and Laurel Halo, whose wild rhythmic excursions have emerged through labels including Hyperdub and Honest Jon's.
Rinse has always been defined by its ear-to-the-ground attitude, through providing a platform for those young artists whose visions are reshaping UK dance music in the present. So facing the future are the new hybrid club music innovators on the bill, including PC Music founder A.G. Cook, one of the minds behind the mindbending pop of 'Hey QT', Bristol techno shapeshifter Hodge, and the whirlwind blends ofKamixlo and Lexxi, two of the DJs behind London's renowned Endless parties.
The full list of initially announced acts for Rinse and Born & Bred runs as follows: ILOVEMAKONNEN / A. G. Cook / AJ Tracey / Benga / Bugzy Malone / Calibre / DBridge / Dispatch Records / DJ Ron / Exit Records / Fabio / Foundation (Scott Garcia & Sticky) / FWD>> / Heritage / Jammer / Jammz / Josey Rebelle / Kamixlo/ Koreless / Lady Leshurr / Laurel Halo / Livin' Proof / Loefah / Logan Sama / London Some'ting / Lord of the Mics / Matt Jam Lamont / MssingNo. / Murlo / Newham Generals / Novelist / P Money / Paleman / Siobhan Bell / Sir Spyro / So Solid Crew (Lisa Maffia & Romeo) / Swamp 81 / The Square / Youngsta / Zed Bias + many more
Rinse and Born & Bred will take place at Haggerston Park, Shoreditch, on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June 2016. Many more names are set to be announced in the coming months, from both the Rinse family and beyond.
Boardmasters has already announced a host of incredible acts for the August 2013 line up, but the fun doesn’t stop there with house, electro, dubstep and drum n bass on the cards at the recently revealed Unleashed and Marley Point stages.
If Basement Jaxx and The Vaccines aren’t enough for festival-goers to get crazy to then the newly named Unleashed stage ought to do the job.
At the helm, dubstep innovator, producer and legend Benga will be delivering a hedonistic cocktail of dubstep and drum & bass to all those partying in this epic arena. With two successful albums under his belt, producing for Katy B, working on a new Magnetic Man album and a BBC Radio 1 show with partner Skream, you don’t get much bigger than Benga.
Joining the madness on the Unleashed stage, producer extraordinaire Redlight will be smashing up the dance floor with summer vibes, heavy beats and hyped club tracks. Having previously toured with the likes of Disclosure, Rudimental and Magnetic man, Redlight will once again be in good company on this bass warrior stage.
The tasty line up doesn’t stop there with BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra presenter MistaJam and his special project “MistaJam presents Speakerbox” and electronic pioneers Simian Mobile Disco joining the list of awesome acts raising the roof on the Unleashed stage.
Next up in this already immense billing is bona fide legend, American hip-hop musician and DJ Grandmaster Flash. One of the pioneers of hip-hop and the inventor of the cross fader and the Quick Mix Theory, his Boardmasters performance is guaranteed to be like no other.
Over on the cliff edge, the House of Marley returns for 2013 with what was one of the most popular areas at Boardmasters 2012. With a whole host of ferocious acts on the line up, The Marley Point will once again pull in the crowds with relaxing and subtle beats during the day, smashing out some of the best music and entertainment by night.
Kicking off the Marley Point party is one of the UK’s most buzzed-about house acts Dusky with tracks from their fresh new EP Nobody Else and dropping tracks from last year’s massive Flo Jam.
Keeping the party vibing, electronic duo Bondax will also be taking to the Marley stage with their upbeat melodies and 90’s house style tunes including the phenomenal Gold and It’s You guaranteeing hands-in-the-air moments throughout the night.
Another Marley highlight includes Rinse FM’s garage and house whizz kid T.Williams. One of the driving forces behind UK house label Deep Teknologi, T.Williams continues to rise through the UK house and bass ranks and will be stepping up to the plate at Boardmasters with some seriously deep tracks.
Watch these house, drum n bass and dubstep marvel's smash it whilst taking in the jaw dropping views on offer at the Marley Point stage.

Over the past six months we have strived to deliver to you what we believe is the biggest line up we have ever seen at the festival, starting with Saturday headliners, The Prodigy.
As one of the most, if not the most influential dance acts on the planet, we’re pleased to announce The Prodigy will be headlining the North Stage on Saturday 24th August for their only UK performance this year. Expect bomb squad production, appendix churning bass and rushing keyboard hooks as you experience one of the greatest live shows of your lifetime.
Headlining the South Stage on Saturday will be Avicii. After thousands watched the Swedish phenomenon smash it last year we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us this time. Whilst Avicii enjoys the fresh heights of fame, one DJ who has been at the top of his game for the past two decades is Tiësto. A performer who has transcended musical genres, Tiësto continues to be one of the World’s top DJs and that’s why we’re happy to announce that he will be returning with the Clublife South Stage on Sunday. Proceeding with our world class line-up, we welcome back David Guetta who continues his global domination with the news that he has hit the 1 million sales record for his track ‘Titanium’ ft Sia, not to mention the numerous awards he has won over the past 12 months. As ever David will be bringing his full scale production and vast music catalogue to close Sunday’s North Stage.
Size Records has become the starting block for many a DJ/producer over the past few years and at its helm is Steve Angello. As one of the most successful electronic producers of his time, Steve’s sets at Creamfields are always epic and we assure you this year will be no different. If that wasn’t enough we've also got his partner in crime Sebastian Ingrosso hosting his very first ‘All Mixed Up’ arena on Sunday. If you haven’t experienced these guys’ sets before, you better get ready because they know how to party, hard.
One DJ collective who uphold a 100% success rate for giving their audience goosebumps are Above & Beyond, famed for their interactive, uplifting performances we can’t wait to have them back at the show. Another act we’re excited to see is Paul van Dyk. Paul is a Cream legend, having played for the festival nearly every year since its inception and also maintaining a successful residency at Cream Ibiza he consistently delivers and will be back to headline the Cream Arena on Sunday.
Further highlights this year include Eric Prydz aka Pryda whose February Essential Mix is still a constant on the Creamfields office speakers plus the ferocious Knife Party who will take to Saturday’s South Stage to treat us with their heady cocktail of sounds from dubstep and electro to drum and bass and moombahton. They will be joined by the DJ with the Midas touch, Nicky Romero, who recently celebrated his first UK number 1 with the track ‘I Could Be The One’ featuring Avicii. We also have Grammy-award winner Afrojack, DJ Mag Top 100 #6 Hardwell, wonderkid Porter Robinson and Refune prodigy Alesso who is back after that amazing set on last year’s South Stage. Also listen out for Groove Armada as they will be sure to debut some brand new tracks in the Nation Arena as they recently announced that they’re heading back into the studio. From legends to fresh faces we couldn’t believe our eyes when we first saw Madeon play, so much talent and still only 18! If you haven’t seen his ‘Pop Culture’ video on YouTube yet – look now – and don’t miss his North Stage debut.
Ensuring our stages are kept booming across both days we’ve put together a delectable line-up of stars including NERVO, Zane Lowe, Zedd, Tommy Trash, Feed Me, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Borgore, Norman Doray, Alvaro, Major Look Tom Staar, and Pegboard Nerds.
Shaking things up for this year we introduce a fresh new arena from Pete Tong. The All Gone Pete Tong arena embodies Pete’s ability to push and nurture new talent whilst still representing the artists who helped forge the scene. First on the invite list is Sasha, ready to drop tracks from his brand new Involv3r compilation release and making a welcome return to the festival after a year hiatus. Moving on from one of Mixmag’s first cover stars to their DJ of 2012, Solomun, will be bringing the sounds of his Diynamic label to the show for the first time. Completing this tasty first line-up are leading DJ/ producers Joris Voorn, David Squillace, Hernan Cattaneo, Hot Since 82 and Jaymo & Andy George. Bring it.
From ‘All Gone Pete Tong’ to ‘All Mixed Up’; the brand new arena presented by Sebastian Ingrosso, which features himself and protégé Alesso as well as very special guest Armand van Helden, Otto Knows, Mat Zo, Deniz Koyu and Carli. Whilst Steve Angello and the Size Matters posse will be raising the roof once again with acts Benny Benassi, AN21, Max Vangeli, Third Party, Tim Mason, Quilinez and Wayne & Woods.
Creamfields’ first lady Annie Mac has pulled it out of the bag once again with the line-up for the Annie Mac Presents Arena which includes a live performance from the BBC’s coveted Sound of 2013 #2 act, AlunaGeorge. The über talented duo will also be joined by breakthrough house producerJulio Bashmore whose infectious melodies are certain to provide the perfect summer festival vibe, and the extremely talented Eats Everything and his ‘Feather Fight’ cohort Justin Martin. In addition, we also welcome rising stars Toddla T Sound and Monki and along with the man behind the ‘Harlem Shake,' Baauer.
After last year we have made it our mission to get the acts you missed back to this year’s festival including the mighty Richie Hawtin and his unique ENTER. Arena concept. Now an award-winning night in Ibiza, ENTER. will provide a Balearic atmosphere on Sunday complimented by the beats of the mighty Loco Dice, Seth Troxler, Gaiser, Paco Osuna and Hobo.
As a much revered institution at Creamfields we’re always excited to see the line-up for the Pryda Friends Arena and this year Eric Prydz has surpassed even our expectations offering up sets from renowned techno producer Marco Carola, RA’s #10 of 2012 Maya Jane Coles plus a welcome return from Adam Beyer. We also have a debut appearance from Maceo Plex and music from Scuba, George Fitzgerald and Fehrplay.
When it comes to bass, beats and solid grooves there are two people who never let you down and that’s why this year we’ve asked Skream & Benga to curate a brand new arena for Saturday. Skream & Benga present will feature sets from the men themselves as well as a few of their friends including Ram Records founder Andy C, Redlight, Rustie, Jack Beats, Alvin Risk, Zinc, Bondax, Clean Bandit, Kidnap Kid, Woz plus many more.
Celebrating the landmark 10th edition of their renowned label showcase with ‘Anjunabeats Volume 10’, Above & Beyond present the Anjunabeats Arena in association with Mixmag for the first time at Creamfields offering plenty of euphoric, hands in the air moments with a little help from their ‘On A Good Day’ co-producer Gareth Emery, Cream legend Paul Oakenfold and Arty. They will also be bringing the cream of the Anjuna crop in the form of Norin & Rad and Andrew Bayer.
Topping up the trance on Sunday we have the iconic Cream Arena, our longest standing arena, filled with memories, many made by these guys –Paul van Dyk and Ferry Corsten. They will be celebrating this special anniversary with John O’Callaghan, Simon Patterson, Jordan Suckleyand Adam Sheridan.
Prepare your superhero costumes as Laidback Luke returns with the SuperYou&Me Arena! Steve Aoki will finally make his Creamfields debut along with his rider of cakes, inflatables and plenty of champagne for everyone! And the party doesn’t stop there! Eddie Halliwell will be making sure you’re fired up while Chuckie and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano will be making up the Dutch contingent supported by Tom Swoon and La Fuenta.
Whilst Skream & Benga ensure the bass is covered on Saturday, Mistajam will show us what his Speakerbox imprint has got on Sunday with a headline live performance from Sub Focus and a Creamfields debut for London boys Modestep. The raw talent in this arena doesn’t end there with sets to look forward to from Digital Soundboy’s Shy Fx plus Mistajam himself, Monsta, Killsonik, Friction, Majestic, Decibel, North Base andBitR8.
After last year’s success we’re bringing the Nation concept undercover with the Nation Arena headlined by Groove Armada, with return performances from A-Trak, Fake Blood and Jaguar Skills. Plus we’ve also got sets from emerging talent Jackmaster, Burns and Eli & Fur.
Providing beats on the harder side of dance is the Goodgreef Xtra-Hard Arena which features performances from the likes of Kutksi, Andy Whitby, Alex Kidd, the Organ Donors plus many more, and for those who prefer the finer side of life, Hed Kandi return as hosts of the Hospitality Arena.
It has become somewhat of a tradition to have the Mixmag as our official warm-up hosts for the festival and this year is no different as they bring you ‘That Mixmag Thing’ silent disco arena on Friday 23rd August with DJ Mag’s youngest covermount artist – at just 17! – Danny Avila and Mixmag’s ‘one to watch’ Deniz Koyu plus the Mixmag Allstars. If you like things a little deeper and darker then Riva Starr’s Snatch! silent disco arena is the place for you.
