Acclaimed producer, DJ and remixer Dirty South has worked with a host of artists including Snoop Dogg, David Guetta, Sebastian Ingrosso, Deniz Kuyo and Alesso. His album, April’s ‘Speed of Life’, is a big-room corker – see him at his best on 20th July.
His recent release on mau5trap Records has won acclaim from all corners, and he’s an Electric Daisy Carnival veteran, having played Las Vegas in 2012 – and now Londoner Feed Me plays on his home turf. Fresh from the release of his brand new EP ‘Blow the Roof’, UK dubstep big gun Flux Pavilion also joins the Speakerbox Arena. The Circus Records mastermind, who has recently collaborated with Major Lazer, was nominated for the BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll, and brings a distinctive bass sound to the event.

Grammy Award-winning British trio Nero – who have collaborated with and remixed the likes of Skrillex, Deadmau5, Calvin Harris and N.E.R.D., and whose track ‘Into the Past’ features on the soundtrack for the upcoming film ‘The Great Gatsby’ – join the line-up. With a follow-up to their debut ‘Welcome to Reality’, which reached Number 1 in the UK albums chart, under construction, this is a chance to see this big-name act in Mistajam’s Speakerbox Arena.
Joining the Main Stage experience are Australian twins NERVO, who co-wrote David Guetta’s Grammy-winning 2011 track ‘When Love Takes Over’, and have also worked with Afrojack and Steve Aoki.

An epicenter for the world’s leading dance music stars, the Electric Daisy Carnival London Main Stage is headed up by Dutch megastar Tiësto and Swedish prodigy AVICII. Tiësto brings a touch of world class to the Main Stage; a one-man music machine, he is a global powerhouse, with his own iPhone App, a weekly podcast, tour dates around the world, and a recent collaboration with AIDS charity (RED) – November 2012’s ‘Dance (RED) Save Lives’ demonstrating his influence. Avicii is an incredible addition to the line-up. The young producer and DJ is currently ranked Number 3 in the ‘DJ Magazine’ Top 100 DJs list, and was nominated for a Grammy this year for Best Dance Recording.
The excitement doesn’t stop there, as Steve Angello – who dropped an Essential Mix of epic proportions on BBC Radio 1 in March – is a star attraction.

His upcoming MInistry of Sound collaboration with Mat Zo, April’s ‘Easy’, is already being proclaimed one of the tunes of 2013, such is its floor-filler potential. Crookers also gets behind the decks, fresh from his remix of deadmau5 and Imogen Heap’s ‘Telemiscommunications’. Big time producer, DJ and promoter of HARD, Destructo is also in effect. And very special guest Rusko hits heavy, making this one mind-blowing arena.
One of BBC Radio 1Xtra’s most-loved DJs, Mistajam comes to Electric Daisy Carnival London, hosting his very own Speakerbox Arena. Speakerbox has had a fantastic year, pulling together some of the best scenes and skills in urban and bass music. BBC Radio 1 face Jaguar Skills brings his electric-quick mixing and his own eclectic tune selection. Household name Caspa jumps on board. His big and bassy free download ‘Freeze’ is available now, taken from his ‘Alpha Omega’ album due in April. And no arena is complete without its legends. One of the original pioneers of jungle, SHY FX teams up with Stamina MC, and drum’n’bass innovator Goldie joins the ranks. The Speakerbox Arena will be bouncing all day long.
Taking full advantage of the vast space of the former Olympic Park site, expect the full carnival experience with carnival rides, art installations and hundreds of costume-clad performers. As Insomniac’s first venture onto UK shores this event is set to be the show of 2013.
