We are excited here at Summer Festival Guide HQ to bring you the phase 2 lineup for this years SW4 which adds the likes of Pete Tong, John Digweed, Madeon and more to its already massive lineup.
As one of the hottest electronic dance music producers to emerge in recent years, Madeon brings his live show to SW4 for the first time on Sunday 24th August. Aged just 19, Madeon has already had huge success with the singles 'Icarus', 'Finale' and 'The City', all pioneered by Radio 1's Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Zane Lowe before becoming firm favourites on thestation's playlist. His astonishing talent has also been showcased at many of the world’s biggest festivals, cementing his position amongst electronic music’s biggest players.
John Digweed returns to South West Four this summer for the tenth consecutive year and his exclusive London festival performance. John’s philosophy embodies South West Four, whilst his ingenuity, dedication and all round ability to destroy dancefloors is why he is always welcomed him back to Clapham Common with open arms. Having headlined in 2009and hosted Bedrock arenas at SW4 in 2007, 2010, 2012 and 2013, John takes to our mammoth 7,000 capacity indoor stage on Sunday 24th August, ably joined by many of the leading names in underground house and techno.
Pete Tong: the world’s undisputed ambassador for electronic music. It’s quite a title, but one that is whole heartily deserved. Having been broadcasting on BBC Radio 1 since 1991, he has become widely acclaimed across the world as the tastemaker for dance music. Pete has an astounding flair to break new talent; he’s helped kick start the careers of hundreds of artists, giving them the infamous ‘Pete Tong Push’. Now in 2014, with a global touring schedule to make your eyes water, not to mention single, remix and compilation releases abound, Pete has never been more important. A real favourite at the festival, we welcome him back to South West Four’s main stage for another essential performance!
Representing one of the most mouth-watering back-to-back sessions of 2014, South West Four is delighted to exclusively present Bicep going head to head with Simian Mobile Disco. Playing SW4 for the first time, Bicep are the new kids on the block. Through their amalgamation of house, funk, disco and techno, the duo have formed a completely unique yetobscure approach and understanding of electronic music. Evident through their energetic and unpredictable soundtracks, self-curated label and club night ‘Feel My Bicep’, a monthly show on Rinse FM plus further releases on AUS Music, Love Fever and KMS Records, the Bicep boys have established themselves as one of house music’s most sought-after acts. They will team up with the unmistakeable duo of James Ford and Jas Shaw aka Simian Mobile Disco to form one of the tastiest DJ battles SW4 has ever seen. With their collaboration‘Sacrifice’ marking a pivotal point in 2013, Bicep and Simian Mobile Disco arrive for this mouth-watering battle of the beats as two of dance music’s most intriguing forces. We guarantee that this exclusive pairing will leave you begging for more.
Since the release of his artistically brilliant album ‘1977’ on Kompakt last June, the electronic world has been in admiration of one of its fastest rising stars, Kölsch. Following superb recent performances at the Bugged Out Weekender and Snowbombing, plus his inaugural headline UK tour, the Dane has set himself up to become one of 2014’s most exciting artists. Fittingly described as romantic techno, Kölsch’s melodic anthems have gained a vast amount of support from the world’s leading talent. Having kicked off the year in fine form by launching BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix Future Stars series, it’s clear that 2014 is the year of Kölsch.
Another artist that will join us at South West Four for the first time in 2014 is Shadow Child. Fully revelling in the limelight thanks to his recent onslaught of bass-heavy house joints that have raised the roof the world over, his meteoric riseto prominence stems from his 2012 debut in ‘String Thing’ through DirtyBird records. He has subsequently gone onto release tracks on Apollo Music and Moda Black and in the process has earned mass support from label owners as well as the likes of Eats Everything, Annie Mac and Pete Tong. In 2014Shadow Child released his debut album‘Collected’, which fully showcases the breadth of his talent including hit originals to stunning remixes of the likes of London Grammar andAluna George. We cannot wait to see Shadow Childset SW4 alight with his stunning blend of pounding house beats.
As two of drum and bass’ greatest exports, SW4 Sunday will see the unmistakeable Marcus Intalex go head-to-head with Special Request for the very first time. Representing thesoulful side of drum and bass sounds, Marcus has honed his craft with residencies at both Fabric London and Soul:ution Manchester as well as heading up his Soul:Rlabel. Having earned his reputation as drum and bass’ leading tastemaker, this unmissable battle promises to shake Clapham Common to its core. Inspired by the unruly conventions of UK pirate radio stations, Special Request captures the raw energy and diversity of the illegal airwaves that have been an immeasurable influence as his alter-ego Paul Woolford. After storming through the scene in 2013 with a mix of vinyl-only and limited edition releases including ‘Lolita’ and ‘Alone’, this uncompromising contest of heavy-hitting 160 BPM beats, promises to be remembered for years to come.
As one of the UK club music's most restless innovators, Boddika makes his SW4 debut on Sunday 24th August. Whether it’s his terrific solo productions, incredible collaborationswith Joy Orbsion and Pearson Sound, as one half of the highly respected Instra:mental, or one third of Autonomic, Boddika’s hardcore techno workouts are a joy to behold. With notable releases such as ‘Soul What’, ‘Acid Jackson’ and ‘Steam’, the past few years have been non-stop for the Nonplus label head and we're very excited to be welcoming him toClapham Common.
Hailing from Miami, Danny Daze has championed his sound in recent years after uniquely fusing together elements of Detroit techno with Italian disco to make him one of the world’s most interesting underground talents. Making his long-awaited SW4 debut in 2014, Danny has seen his profile grow ten-fold over the past twelve months by consistently delivering on the finest imprints of today including Saved, Hot Creations, Dirtybird, Future Classic and long-term friend Maceo Plex’sEllum. With non-stop tours across the world, Danny’s technical prowess allows him to take musical risks that make him one of the most exciting acts to make the trip to South London on Sunday 24th August.

Household name Caspa is on board. UK house producer Chris Lake comes to Electric Daisy Carnival fresh from a US tour. Dirty Dutch house supremo DJ and producer Chuckie arrives, bringing his own world-renowned sound.
Crookers gets behind the decks, fresh from his remix of deadmau5 and Imogen Heap’s ‘Telemiscommunications’.

Waking up and starting off Sunday at RockNess like many others – with a handful of after sun. Although, looking around most people could probably do with a few paracetamol and a pint of water.
Fatherson, a Scottish Alt Rock band kicked everything off on the main stage with a slightly smaller but committed crowd. Soothing vocals from Ross Leighton causing girls in the front row to fan girl (actual fanning movements of the hand were seen and squealing was heard). My personal attention was split between the music and the beards but the music eventually prevailed. If you’re interested, their music can be heard via their Bandcamp page here (without the distractions of well groomed beards) http://fathersonuk.bandcamp.com/album/fatherson my personal favourite is “43”but for a more upbeat feel give “Hometown” a listen.
Having been nominated for the BBC’s “sound of 2012” poll and her debut album awarded “iTunes Album of The Year 2012”, Lianne La Havas has been very busy since she came on to the commercial music scene in 2011, and it’s no wonder why. Lianne has such a captivating, gentle voice she was able to tame a tent full of rowdy drunken Scots. When performing she seems to loose herself in the lyrics which only draws the crowd in more. With thought provoking lyrics, spine tingling vocals and a quirky wardrobe, Lianne La Havas is definitely one to keep your eye on this year.
Walking in to the tent Ben Howard was playing in, I was positive I had walked in to a tent of hyperventilating One Direction fans. Filled to the brim of teary eyed, fidgeting females of all ages, actions that were magnified when he came on stage. Ben Howard had a haunting stage set up, hiding amongst shadows on stage, showing everyone he can hold a show with his voice alone and doesn’t need a fancy light show or backing dancers.
Coming out of the tent of Ben Howard and wandering around the main arena the crowd has almost tripled in size since Friday and I have a rough idea as to why. I’ve seen Madness live before and they put on a better show to artists to half their age and yes, there is the whole “experience over age” argument but WHERE do they get their energy from? They know exactly how to please a crowd, using the whole stage, not only interacting with the crowd but interacting with one another for the crowds amusement. They definitely haven’t lost anything over the years (they even still have hairlines to be proud of!). The perfect band for a sunny day at a festival, providing sing along opportunities with their hits such as “Our House” and “Baggy Trousers” suitable for all ages present at the festival, Madness were a joy to photograph and watch live.
It’s now where I get rather emotional and start to evaluate my life choices. At the age of 19 and only a mere month younger than me Madeon took to the stage, blew everyone away while mixing AND controlling his own light show. Having played at major music festivals in New York, California and Miami, playing at Radio 1’s Big Weekend AND supporting Swedish House Mafia, I feel like I need to get off my bum and join him in world domination. Now don’t think because of his age you should expect less from his live sets than other DJ’s on the scene at the moment, if anything, he’s exceeding a lot of them.
The headlining act and final act of Sunday was Plan B, someone I wouldn’t personally go see live in concert but someone I definitely would pay money to see again. The soulful voice you hear on his songs is just as good as live but sang with so much more character. Plan B put so much energy in to his performance, shifting his voice from soft and soothing to painfully aggressive, he brings something to his live music which I haven’t seen in any of the other acts over the weekend. I was so surprised with this live performance, nothing was half hearted, the band, vocals, lights, the entire energy of the show has definitely left an impression on me. Plan B unquestionably finished RockNess 2013 with a bang.
Buy your tickets for RockNess 2014 now and don’t miss out on the most beautiful festival in the world.
Hot on the heels of the first acts being revealed for RockNess 2013, the next heaving-with-quality announcement of artists heading to Dores this summer is here, including the first acts landing with devastating effect on the SUB CLUB SOUND SYSTEM and SOMA RECORDS on the ARCADIA AFTERBURNER.
First up, and we couldn’t be happier, FATBOY SLIM is heading back to his spiritual home as Very Special Guest! There at the birth, and checking in to Dores as often as his in-demand globetrotting allows, no other artist in the festival’s history feels the RockNess love – or drops such monster levels of raveability – as FATBOY SLIM. For those yet to experience the quite frankly outrageous party euphoria induced by Norman…get ready!
Sending this message to Rocknessers ahead of June, he has this to say…“Comin’ home to baby on the shores of Dores…RockNess I’ve missed you…feels so good to be heading back to see how my wayward child has grown. Roll on June, roll on The Scottish Highlands, roll on the party…” We’ve missed you too Norman. See you soon!
With the tightest productions and finely crafted, vocal-laced gems, released across 3 genre-defining albums on their Anjunabeats label, ABOVE & BEYOND are setting the trance bar very high indeed. Playing to packed out crowds at the biggest dance events on the planet, the trio’s relentless stadia touring schedule, which includes playing to 1 million people on Barra Beach in Rio, as well as soundtracking Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Spaceship Two and taking their TATW radio show to the Twitter top spot across the world, RockNess is very pleased to be welcoming ABOVE & BEYOND to Scotland this summer.
MADEON is one of the most electrifying artists to have burst on to the scene in recent times. Having delivered a set of outstanding quality when he made his debut Scottish appearance at RockNess last year as part of an all-French assault headed up by Justice, the 18 year old megastar is back for more demolition! Mind boggling numbers of youtube views, production credits for the likes of Pendulum and Deadmau5, appearances at top festivals including Coachella…MADEON is on fire. Standby for a litany of sounds spanning nu-disco, house classics and full on electro bangers!
JULIO BASHMORE is leading the charge and cultivating house music like no one else right now. Which goes some way to explaining the level of excitement and stratospheric rise surrounding this Bristolian. Having garnered a devoted following based on the slew of singles and EPs he has put out since 2009, electrifying club sets, plus production on the incredible JESSIE WARE’s Mercury-nominated Devotion (another RockNess must-see artist!), JULIO BASHMORE is delivering on the hype.
If anyone knows how to throw a banging party, STEVE AOKI does. The Dim Mak Records founder’s style is totally unique. A bit of dub step, bit of house, little bit of pop intricacy too, AOKI’s hardcore LA roots underpin his propulsive energy and raw punk attitude. STEVE AOKI rocks a crowd, and he’ll most definitely rock Dores!
As a member of dubstep pioneers Magnetic Man, BENGA is co-responsible for an output of undisputable quality, punctuated with junglist tendencies, tech-laced soulfullness and guest vocals from the likes of Katy B and Miss Dynamite. Along with Magnetic Man comrade SKREAM, one of the genre’s first and most prominent producers (La Roux, Bat For Lashes, Goldie and Toddla T), the two are forging the freshest musical directions, heard in its glory every Friday on their BBC Radio 1 ‘In New Music We Trust’ show.
German house duo BOOKA SHADE channel the spirit of the underground but reach out to festival-sized audiences. Having leapt to the forefront of dance with a clutch of hit tracks, as well as lending production magic to artists including The Knife, Moby, Roxy Music and Hot Chip, and garnering a string of awards along the way, fans can look forward to hearing new material off EP ‘Haleshop’, released on the highly acclaimed Get Physical Music label which they co-founded.
Philadelphia’s JOSH WINK is one of the most prominent exponents of the tribal forms of techno and house. Resting on the laurels of his huge success in the 90s has never been an option for WINK, who instead has consistently forged new directions in the underground scene, as well as enjoying the highest respect for his remixing of artists including Radiohead, Gorillaz and Nine Inch Nails.
To hear PAN-POT’s simply colossal sound is to hear techno as it is intended. Tagging themselves as “the dark side of the force”, PAN-POT plumb the deep uncharted depths of pitch black techno, turning convention on its head with an unorthodox kinetic sound that stands them as one of the genre’s most dominant forces. The reverberations are still being felt from the last time our SOMA RECORDS friends brought PAN-POT to Scotland…so we are beyond excited to confirm they return in 2013, this time to RockNess.
A genuine homegrown hero, Glaswegian JACKMASTER’s rise to fame is about as storybook perfect as it gets. Co-founder of the city’s long running NUMBERS collective, which played to packed out crowds at the legendary SUB CLUB and swiftly spread to dancefloors across the world, the element of glorious surprise underpins his sets every time. Few can hype a crowd quite like JACKMASTER – as his global DJ’ing schedule in 2013 bears testament – and we are extremely pleased to be welcoming him back to RockNess for an unmissable set of sheer quality.
Regarded as one of the most forward thinking club nights in the world, the SUB CLUB’s weekly SUBCULTURE residency is an institution that reigns supreme. HARRI and DOMENIC are revered by the electronic music fraternity the world over, and week in week out bodies are jacked at this inspirational residency. Last year we were spoiled rotten at RockNess as we celebrated the start of the SUB CLUB’s 25 Years birthday party, Twelve months down the line and come June there will be no finer exponents of house music to bring the year-long birthday party to a close than HARRI & DOMENIC. And to toast the prospect of another 25 years of treats!
GARY BECK is one of the most prolific and inventive producers on the scene. A unique sound, and in high demand at the world’s most respected clubs and festivals, his style can be heard on electro’s most pioneering labels, notably SOMA RECORDS and his own imprint Bek Audio. Now on its 12th release, Bek Audio features a raft of top notch artists such as Slam, Mr G, Mark Broom and Speedy J.
HANS BOUFFMYHRE began his career in Glasgow with a night called 'Sleaze' where he booked and played alongside the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Funk D' Void, Chloe and Radio Slave.. Fast forward and his Sleaze Records is trailblazing as one of the UK’s most impressive techno labels. HANS’ tracks enjoy the support from luminaries including Richie Hawtin, Dubfire and Adam Beyer. Check him out this June and witness why.
JAGUAR SKILLS is a British DJ who has gained notoriety for his eclectic multi-genre, cut-n-paste style mixes. He has released hundreds of mixtapes, including across BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, and plays out to the nation with a weekly mix on the Trevor Nelson show. JAGUAR SKILLS has also dropped vocals on Grand Theft Auto, occupied a residency at Jade Jagger’s Jezebel night at Pacha in Ibiza, then latterly at Jezebel happenings in Europe, Russia and Hong Kong, and retains his mystique by famously wearing a balaclava during performances.
These latest electronic acts join EXAMPLE, BASEMENT JAXX, MADNESS, THE VACCINES, BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB, BEN HOWARD, ELLIE GOULDING, THE MACABEES, JESSIE WARE, CAMERA OBSCURA and NEWTON FAULKNER.

We’re building on 2011’s redefining event and 2012’s bumper weekend of unrivalled partying, sunshine and beats, and continuing to set standards for UK dance festivals in 2013.
Not only are we widening the diversity of music on offer to ensure every electronic music fan’s taste is catered for, we’re elevating the new generation of headliners bringing together some of the world’s biggest superstars with critically acclaimed underground talent for you to discover in 2013. With two additional arenas yet to be announced and further investment on production inspired by our global travels, we’ve ensured we’ll give our crowds the best overall experience at any UK festival this summer.
This year, the most explosive outdoor stage at any major UK festival returns with headline performances from two London-born artists who’ve risen up the ranks from their underground beginnings. The man with more strings to his bow than the London Symphony Orchestra – Plan B, will showcase both sides of his persona when he brings the soulfully bitter-sweet story of Strickland Banks to life alongside the brutally honest hip-hop journey of Ill Manors.
His fellow Londoner and Main Stage headliner Example jumps straight to the top of the Global food chain in his debut performance at the festival. The crowds should expect nothing short of the most euphoric house beats and uplifting electro vibes, along with bassier elements of dubstep and hip-hop in the live show from the man who brought us the massive number one singles Changed the Way You Kissed Me and Stay Awake. Recent hits from his newest album The Evolution of Man will be joined by the classics Kickstarts, Watch the Sun Come Up and Won’t Go Quietly – all tunes that have firmly cemented their place in the collective psyche of the dance music masses.
Example said: “I've always wanted to play GlobalGathering – my music mates have told me all about the mental crowds and atmosphere. To be making my Global debut headlining the main stage is huge for me. I'll be bringing extra fire and lasers don't you worry!”
Two chart storming titans of UK electronic music will bring their live shows to the Main Stage for the first time this year. First up are the UK’s hottest new EDM duo, Disclosure, whose most recent single White Noise with AlunaGeorge made it to number 2 in the official charts and who were included in the Hot Ten For 2013 by BBC Radio 1Xtra. DnB quartet Rudimental, whose number 1 smasher Feel the Love was one of the tunes of summer 2012 and was followed up by the anthemic Not Giving In ft Alex Clare, also play the Main Stage having graduated from their appearance on the smaller outdoor stage in 2012.
The crowds can expect UK garage, dubstep and R&B sounds from South London songstress Katy B in her Main Stage debut, following on from her appearance on the FWD Rinse stage alongside Geeneus & Tippa in 2010.
Katy B said: "Global Gathering was the first festival I played when Katy On A Mission came out and I felt so welcome straight away. I love that it celebrates all things rave culture and I'm really excited to play this year."
The undisputed Queen of EDM and mistress of the mash-ups, Annie Mac will take to the GlobalGathering Main Stage for the first time since 2007, following appearances over the years across other arenas. Bringing full production with her for the first time, Annie is set to deliver a mind-blowing experience to the crowds that are sure to congregate to see her show.
Joining them on the Main Stage across the two days will be a live performance from Belgian liquid funk wunderkind Netsky – whose Global debut last year was one of the most talked about performances of the weekend and has earned him a spot alongside the big guns on the Main Stage for the first time. Plus genre-busting and bass blending Major Look, electronic rockers Modestep (Live) and sultry dub and trip-hop inspired songstress Delilah (Live) will also grace the Main Stage.
Across the rest of the festival site, the first arena hosts to be announced read like a who’s who of the industry today.
Kicking off with some big news, Global are excited to announce that the UK’s home of urban music, BBC Radio 1Xtra, will host an arena at this year’s festival. Global stalwart MistaJam, who will be joined by the Eskiboy and Godfather of Grime, Wiley plus special guests Roll Deep, will commandeer the 1Xtra Arena. Wiley, whose smash hit Heatwave reached number one in the UK last summer, and more recently, has found success with Can You Hear Me (Ayayaya) charting at number three in the UK. Pioneer of the UK underground scene, leader of Roll Deep and original member of Boy Better Know, he will certainly be causing a heatwave when he takes to the mic. Chart-topping Rita Ora, whose debut album Ora reached number one in the UK, spawning three number one singles, making her the artist with the most number-one singles on the UK Singles Chart in 2012, will be making a special guest appearance. In addition to this comes support in the form of Dot Rotten, K Koke (live), Futurebound and Matrix and Devolution as well as a very special headline artist yet to be announced!

GlobalGathering are also very pleased to reveal that the legendary Carl Cox & FriendsArena will make an epic return to Long Marston Airfield in 2013. After taking a break in 2012, we couldn’t be more excited that Carl Cox & Friends will be back, bringing together a line-up spanning many genres of electronic music. The DJ, the producer, the man, the legend will be bringing the sounds of his classic night from the White Isle with sets from Chris Liebing, Cassy, Nina Kraviz, John Digweed and Circus Recordings boss Yousef, plus many more that are sure to create a summer Ibiza vibe. Welcome back Carl!
Carl Cox said: “GlobalGathering is one of the best dance music festivals around – I can’t wait to bring my arena back to those mental crowds again. It’s good to be back!”
Global are very excited to welcome Hot Creations head honcho Jamie Jones who will be hosting his very own arena for the first time – the Paradise Arena.

The UKF Bass CultureArena returns for a second year with DJ Fresh headlining the area with his incredible Fresh Live show. Pushing the boundaries of drum and bass and dubstep, Fresh Live combines the technique and hysteria of his DJ sets with the energy of a live instrumental performance. EDM prodigy and wonder kid Zedd will be making a special guest appearance. Rolling Stone named Zedd an ‘Artist to Watch’ for 2012, and more recently, MTV deemed him an ‘Artist to Watch’ for 2013. UK dubstep originator Benga will play alongside Flux Pavilion, plus Andy C & MC GQ and DnB pioneer and Digital Soundboy label owner Shy FX.
In its third year as a GlobalGathering arena host, event brand Metropolis will be introducing some of the hottest talent from the underground bass scene. Sub Focus will be bringing his live show to headline the arena and will deliver his earth shaking hybrid mix of drum and bass and dubstep. Joining Sub Focus will be reggae and dancehall master David 'Ram Jam' Rodigan (MBE) who has recently been added to BBC Radio 1Xtra’s weekly roster. Playing alongside them will be the mighty ninja Jaguar Skills as well as Friction (Ft. Scrufizzer, P Money & Arlissa), DJ Hype and MC IC3, with support from Dismantle & Breakage, B Traits, Monsta, and Killsonik, bringing the finest sounds of UK bass.

We’re confident that the exciting developments to this summer’s stages and arenas, that we’ll be revealing in the near future, will blow the crowds away!”

Organisers of The Parklife Weekender can finally reveal that the fourth instalment of the festival will be relocating to Manchester's Heaton Park in 2013. Widely regarded as one of the premier outdoor venues in the north of England, Heaton Park has hosted legendary concerts from the likes of The Stone Roses and Oasis. Parklife Weekender organisers are also delighted to announce an additional four artists including Melbourne four-piece The Temper Trap, as well as exciting artists Baauer, Boddika, Breakbot and TEED (DJ set) who will also be playing live. Parklife Weekender takes place on 8th and 9th June 2013 and signals the start of the UK's summer of music. With weekend tickets priced at only £69.50 the Parklife Weekender it is arguably the best value for money festival in the UK this year. For tickets please visit www.parklife.uk.com
The phenomenal success of The Parklife Weekender has seen the festival grow year-on-year since its inception and resulted in Platt Fields Park no longer being big enough to accommodate the event. 2013 will see a wider spread of music and entertainment including larger dance arenas, more spectacular production and many hidden nooks and crannies ensuring the biggest ParklifeWeekender ever staged.
Parklife Weekender Organiser, Sam Kandel says; "We are very lucky that no other large scale events have been planned for the site this year, so that Parklife Weekender is able to work with Manchester City Council for what is our biggest and best festival yet. The Parklife team are very proud to see this years festival at Heaton Park – it definitely feels like 2013 is going to be a key moment in Parklife Weekenders history."
Councillor Nigel Murphy, executive member for the environment, said; "We've worked closely with the Parklife organisers to make sure this successful event can continue to be held in Manchester. We look forward to the long term benefits which events of this nature will bring to Heaton Park, Manchester residents and other people who regularly use this wonderful free facility".
Electric Daisy Carnival, the world-famous electronic music event, will be heading to London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Saturday 20th July 2013 for one of the biggest shows to hit the UK this summer, featuring some of electronic music’s biggest and most globally recognised talent, including headliners Tiësto and AVICII, as well as Steve Angello, Alesso, Hardwell, Madeon and many more, across one main stage and three arenas.
Partnered by Insomniac and Cream, Electric Daisy Carnival London will combine the world’s leading electronic artists with the epic production and visual experience that Electric Daisy Carnival has become famed for.
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. Having just launched his label imprint X, he aims to give music “freedom, fuel and new life”. Young DJ genius Alesso has been far from shy to the Beatport Number 1 spot, and comes to Electric Daisy Carnival London ready to prove just what the fuss is about. Hardwell is known for his mind-blowing sets, and looks to deliver something unbelievable at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in July. He’s boss at Revealed Recordings, and his Hardwell On Air podcast is a regular in the iTunes Top Ten.
Electric Daisy Carnival London hosts the Hard Arena, supplying a heavier electro-infused dance music style. French producer Madeon is a teenage producer whose star is in the ascension, whose most recent collaboration is with Ellie Goulding on ‘Stay Awake’. Fake Blood brings his collection of tunes so anthemic, so huge, his set will rattle the arena to the rafters. Porter Robinson joins Electric Daisy Carnival London in the midst of his Circle Assembly Tour. 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.
Insomniac has built an international reputation for hosting some one of the biggest shows on the planet, producing more than 250 music events for more than 2,000,000 concert goers across America including a ground-breaking 320,000 revellers to Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas annually.
Equally Cream, one of the UK’s longest running and frontline promoters of electronic music, have built an unprecedented reputation for hosting some of the best events the UK has to offer, including the mighty Creamfields festival.
The lineup is below:
Tiësto AVICII Steve Angello Alesso Hardwell Madeon Fake Blood Porter Robinson Jaguar Skills Rusko Caspa (MC Ken Mac) Mistajam Crookers SHY FX (Stamina MC) Goldie (MC GQ) Destructo Stamina MC MC GQ Ken Mac
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.

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.

We also have a debut appearance from Maceo Plex and music from Scuba, George Fitzgerald and Fehrplay.

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.
