Following the massive T in the Park line-up revealed by festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager last week, organisers are delighted to reveal an impressive mix of international electronic dance acts set to play The Slam Tent at T in the Park 2016. The top line-up taking to the decks at Strathallan Castle over 8th – 10th July is:
Slam, Richie Hawtin, Jeff Mills, Marcel Dettmann, Seth Troxler, Nina Kraviz,Ricardo Villalobos b2b Raresh, Len Faki, Chris Liebing, DVS1, Guy Gerber, Skream, Daniel Avery, Speedy J, B. Traits, Petrichor
It’s Jeff Mill’s first Slam Tent appearance in 7 years headlining Sunday alongside Seth Troxler. Making their debut appearances are DVS1, Speedy J, Daniel Avery and Raresh – who plays a rare b2b with Ricardo Villalobos who himself last played more than a decade ago.
Techno titans Slam are renowned worldwide for their blistering back to back sets around the globe. They are the hosts of the Slam Tent four-day extravaganza. The pair always deliver one of the highlight sets of the weekend. Their productions on their own imprint Soma Records are a staple in the sets of just about every DJ at the moment from Ben Klock to Adam Beyer. Last year saw them destroy Cocoon in Ibiza with a special live show. They are also regulars at London's Fabric and host their own monthly Pressure night in Glasgow.
Richie Hawtin headlines this year's Slam Tent with a Saturday night final set. He is many things to many people – an extraordinary DJ and live performer, creator of the ENTER Experience in Ibiza, mastermind behind the Minus label, technological innovator, art aficionado and style icon. He created a unique techno sound, which is regarded as synonymous with the cities of Berlin and Detroit.
Jeff Mills first Slam Tent appearance in 7 years headlining Sunday along with Seth Troxler. He is considered the most brilliant DJ and producer of Techno music in the world. He is the most recognised representative figure of Detroit Techno. Championed for his music’s relentless pursuit of hard-edged rhythms and his stripped-down, almost industrial DJ sets, Mills is the latest in a long line of Detroit-bred talent to take on an international reputation.
DJ and producer Marcel Dettmann is recognised as being one of the most influential proponents of contemporary techno. Widely associated with electronic iconic institutions, Berlin’s Berghain and Hard Wax, Dettmann stays true to his roots by consistently innovating his interpretation of electronic music, and, nevertheless, integrating art deeply into the music scene.
Seth Troxler’s career started in Detroit in 2002 at the age of 16 as a frequent DJ at Detroit club The Works and as a clerk at Detroit’s famous Melodies and Memories record store. With these experiences Seth gained a preternatural understanding of rave, and dance music history, that now allows him to conjure up mixes and tracks like Botticelli conjured his Venus. He has consecutively got himself voted Number Three, Two and the number One in the Resident Advisor Top 100 DJ Poll, landed much-vaunted residencies at DC10 (Ibiza), Trouw in (Amsterdam) and Output (New York) and opened series of much-lauded pop-up restaurants around East London called ‘Smokey Tails’.
How much do you really know about Nina Kraviz? She’s a Russian techno DJ, an accomplished producer, one of dance music’s breakthrough names of the last five years. True enough, but there’s so much more to her story than that. She’s one of electronic music’s most interesting characters, someone who has stuck to her musical guns since day one, someone who has wide-ranging roots that run deep in the past, yet she’s also the embodiment of the future. Her signature sound is a raw blend of house and techno with a very acidic feel. If that feels very now, Kraviz has a lot to do with it.
Ricardo Villalobos: Born in Chile, raised in Germany, world citizen – that pretty much sums up Ricardo’s life, geographically speaking. Ricardo’s inexhaustible creativity and innovation and his unfailing feel for the crowd make him an outstanding artist in the contemporary world of electronic music.
Raresh is definitely one of the fundamental figures of the up-to-date electronic movement. Born in Bacau, the clubbing scene enchained him at the age of 15, when he started playing in a small club in town, marking his turntable ascension from the age whereupon most of the youngsters are still playing football in the courtyard.
Berlin based DJ, producer and label owner Len Faki is of the most outstanding and in-demand artists in techno’s present age. He is an internationally requested DJ, whose productions and remixes are played by techno’s most prominent names. Being a resident at Berlin’s prime techno club Berghain since it’s opening in 2004 keeps him open-minded as both DJ and producer.
Chris Liebing is one of the artists in the steadily and rapidly growing world of electronic music who has faithfully dedicated the past 25 years of his life to the performance, production, distribution and broadcasting of Techno on a global level. He has run a club and several successful club nights, has held residencies in many of the most prestigious venues worldwide, produced his own music and the music of other artists, founded record labels, hosted radio shows, won awards for different branches of his professional efforts and has been an unshakable pillar and devoted ambassador of innovative Techno.
Zak aka DVS1, continues to move floors with a combination of deep musical knowledge, unparalleled enthusiasm, and a vinyl collection of more than 30,000 records. Zak's deep roots and his bold uncompromising nature have won him great respect as a passionate and outspoken defender and promoter quality music.
Ollie ‘Skream’ Jones is on a major roll. The 29 year old Croydon DJ, producer and original dubstepper has seen his career explode even further since taking inspiration from his friend and associate Jackmaster amongst others leading him to veer away from the genre he helped to create to play more House & Techno & even some Disco. He has become a global star and a firm favourite in Scotland.
Guy Gerber has always favoured the road less traveled. The Israeli DJ thrives on confounding expectations. What other underground DJ could collaborate with one of hip-hops biggest moguls, Puff Daddy, or start a left-field night at one of Ibiza’s most commercial clubs, Pacha? What other producer blends the worlds of melancholy and euphoria so effortlessly, or turns in a breakup album as an official.
Since the early nineties, Speedy J has spearheaded labels like Plus 8, Novamute and Warp. After the albums G Spot (1993) and Ginger (1995), as techno developed into a dominating force on many dance floors worldwide, Jochem Paap chose to pursue other exciting avenues. On Public Energy No. 1 (1997) and A Shocking Hobby (2000) the sound wizard exchanged flowing, harmonious techno for a much more complex formula filled with colliding samples, crackling rhythms and tremendously thrilling turns. As a DJ, Speedy J is still as busy as ever, touching down in the most important venues and festivals worldwide every weekend. At the same time Electric Deluxe Presents has swelled into a globetrotting brand with showcases scheduled for various major electronic festivals on the horizon.
If the main motivation whilst making Drone Logic was to take the listener on a hi-fidelity trip for the duration of his debut album, then Daniel Avery emphatically succeeded. From Water Jump’s hypnotic pulse and punch through to the crystalline click of closer Knowing We’ll Be Here via the title track’s elemental acid swirl and New Energy’s take on Neon Lights relocated to a post-midnight cab ride through London, Avery’s debut pushed and pulled at the senses and blurred the boundaries between dance floor and home listening experience.
B. Traits is a skilled producer, DJ And radio presenter, bridging underground music from techno to jungle to house. You should certainly expect the unexpected where B.Traits is concerned – but if there's something you can predict, it's that whatever comes next will be unique, and it will be big.
The man behind the Petrichor project Simon Stokes, has been gradually working his way up the ranks in his home city’s scene and firmly established himself within the Soma hierarchy. His analogue focused, dream like sound straddles the boundaries between electronica, house and techno. He recently released his debut album Mångata to critical acclaim, an intricate, multifaceted album that draws on many spheres of influence, designed as a singular listening piece.

Three train journeys, half an hour on the tube and a shuttle bus later and Summer Festival Guide has arrived at Kent County Showground.
A mile-long queue waits impatiently outside as they hold on to their tickets for dear life.
On first impression, the venue where we'll spend the next 10 hours looks like somewhere you'd hold a wedding, but on closer inspection and once inside, it's more like an aircraft hanger techno haven. Conveniently laid out, you can pop in and out of The Barn and The Meadow, making tough clashes like Guy Gerber or Steve Lawler and Maya Jane Coles or B Traits just a little bit easier.
The soundsystems in both rooms are as good as any night-time club and the overall aesthetic is pretty minimal.
Stepping outside is the only time you'd know it was still the middle of the day, because once immersed in B Traits' techno set you'd be forgiven for thinking it’s 4 in the morning at Fabric.
The VIP area, as well, is a nice addition, with leather sofas and bar stools to sit at, as well as some surprisingly fresh smelling toilets…
Eli & Fur opt for their trademark melodic deep house sound, whilst Russ Yallop takes Kent to Paradise with his undeniably infectious wAFF collaboration 'Mike The Swamp' – as one guy gets over excited opening his beer, which ends up sprayed all over the clean floor.
There's not really an age limit, either. If someone's into house and techno music, chances are that they're somewhere among the few thousand in the crowd.
AME, playing an early afternoon slot, starts his journey of melodic, building techno with plenty of eery vocal-led tracks just as two girls in fluorescent orange vests synchronise the same dance moves.
B Traits, meanwhile, opts for acid, electro and techno in The Barn, dropping some bangers that fill up our Shazam pretty quickly.
The seasoned DJ even dares to be different, throwing in a drum and bass track in her final half hour, before flawlessly mixing it into Barnt's techno thumper 'Chappell' – a track that we'll never get tired of.
Steve Lawler then delivers a standout set full of VIVA Warriors’ tech-house hits, as Eats Everything gets himself psyched up watching on from behind the decks and one guy at the front barrier starts bowing down and goes in for a hug with Bristol's favourite party animal.
Whilst Eats goes back to back with Yusef in the Barn dropping Basti Grub, Natch! & Dothen’s 'Oh Baby Dance' to get everyone warmed up for their three hour slot, Nina Kraviz delivers a set full of fire – quite literally.
Throughout the faultlessly energetic heavy techno onslaught, flames burst from in front of her as she bounces around behind the decks.
It’s the first time SFG has seen Kraviz play and it certainly won't be the last. Fifteen minutes into her hard-hitting set and she’s already won the day.
Nina Kraviz proves time doesn't wait for techno – it's only 7.30pm but when Josh Wink and Lil Louis' 'How's Your Evening So Far?' drops, it feels like 3am.
A tough act to follow, but Social founder Nic Fanciulli going back to back with Joris Voorn delivers another impressive few hours, leaving Drumcode's Adam Beyer to headline the event – certifying The Social's status as the UK's best indoor house and techno festival, undoubtedly. See you next year!
Field Day welcome double Brit Awards nominee and Mercury nominee FKA Twigs, whose Field Day performance will be a London festival exclusive. The exceptional dancer turned singer, songwriter and producer has released one of the most critically acclaimed albums of 2014 – her outstanding debut 'LP1'. Already considered a modern music and style icon, FKA Twigs is swiftly establishing herself as one of the most interesting and enigmatic faces in British music.
Also on board are Run The Jewels, the hip hop super duo formed by underground kings Killer Mike and El-P, in charge of the brilliant ‘Run The Jewels 1’ – Pitchfork’s top album of the year; as well as Hudson Mohawke, one of the most exciting producers to come out of Scotland in the last ten years, seducing rap-heads and ravers alike with his neon-lit E&B and warehouse smashing low-end beats and producing for char topping urban-pop names like Kanye West, Chris Brown and Azealia Banks.
Meanwhile, Norwegian cosmic disco Producer and Field Day favourite Todd Terje, creator of some of the most memorable dance floor hits in recent years, will be performing live with his full band The Olsen’s for the first time in the UK. Fingers crossed for a Bryan Ferry guest appearance…!
We are honoured to have Radiohead’s drummer Philip Selway with us this year, as well as the brilliantTune-Yards, whose explosive live performances are as thrilling and unshakeable as her music. Also confirmed is Fryars, the musical brainchild of London-based Benjamin Garreet, whose peerless sound has won him fans from Kanye West to Depeche Mode.
World music has always played a notable part on Field Day’s line up. Joining the brilliant Ethiopian Keyboardist Hailu Mergia are Toumani & Sidiki Diabaté. In a rare father-and-son collaboration, Toumani, a genius of African music and widely recognised as the greatest living kora player will be joined by his talented son Sidiki, Mali’s best beat maker and kora’s emerging star. This will be a very special performance and we absolutely cannot wait to have them at Field Day this year.
In addition, Brian Shimkovitz aka Awesome Tapes from Africa will be responsible for an unforgettable DJ set on twin tape decks, exploring obscure and wonderful sounds from across the continent.
Expect epic sets from Young Turks signed, Barcelona producer John Talabot, responsible for his outstanding 2012 debut ‘ƒIN’; exceptional producer and DJ Floating Points, who’s won over crowds around the world with his strictly vinyl club session, climbing the ranks of the globe’s most impressive DJ’s; as well as sets from Rinse FM residents Elijah&Skilliam, and fast rising Brighton deep-house producer Leon Vynehall
+ sets from Huw Stephens, Marc Riley, Phil Taggart, Tom Ravenscroft, Volte-Face, Bad Vibrationsand Georgie Rogers!!

Love Saves The Day returns to Bristol's Castle Park in May for a third edition of the cutting edge music festival. Having sold out in both its previous years, months in advance of the shows, Love Saves The Day has expanded to a two date event for 2014 and will once again immerse Bristol in the very best electronic and bass music.
Rocking the Main Stage on Saturday will be local hero Eats Everything whose expertly crafted mix of classic 80s and 90s house and contemporary UK bass has seen him receive such accolades as DJ Magazine's 'Best British DJ' and 'Best Breakthrough Producer' awards as well as becoming the highest new entry in Resident Advisor's celebrated 'Top 100 DJs Poll'. Radio 1's Annie Mac is a true champion of the underground and one of the most in demand club and festival DJ's on the planet. Her widely respected Friday night slot on Radio 1 is essential listening and Annie always knows how to work the crowd.
Clean Bandit are one of the most exciting new dance bands in the UK, and have recently scored their first Number One in January with 'Rather Be' feat. Jess Glynne. First appearing at Love Saves The Day last year, we are really proud to have them return to play one of the premier slots on the Main Stage.
Returning to the fold after a brief hiatus are the mighty Hercules & Love Affair. A collaborative rotating door of personalities, led by the ringmaster of Andy Butler, the new line-up promises some amazing new music and a brand new album this spring, featuring such amazing voices as John Grant, Rouge Mary and Belgian Singer Gustaphe. One thing that we know is whatever the ensemble, H&LV have always put on shows to remember!
Cyril Hahn's expertly executed take on deep house and modern R&B has made him the go-to remixer of the the moment. With influences stemming everywhere from French filter house and hard-core punk through to an affinity with the reverb soaked tones of modern post-rock it's no wonder that this twenty-something wunderkid has made fans of such electronic and indie luminaries as Diplo, the XX, Jessie Ware and his PMR label mates Disclosure
Nina Kraviz sublime combination of deep house and techno has seen her become one of the hottest new names on the scene whilst Craig Richards flies the flag for the tech house fraternity.
Love Saves The Day is delighted to welcome Norway's Todd Terje who is described by Mixmag as the 'King of the summer jams' and will be performing live at the festival as well as Subb-An, Waifs and Strays, Crazy P, Solomon Grey, Moko,Motor City Drum Ensemble, Feel The Real and many more to ensure that Saturday is a relentless aural feast.
Sunday will see the mighty SBTRKT headline the main stage at Love Saves The Day. From his early dub-tinged club focused singles to the crossover success of his self-titled debut album, Sbtrkt has never been afraid to push musical boundaries and his forthcoming 2014 album is one that is sure to break new ground in what we understand as live electronic dance music.
Preceding Sbtrkt will be one of the most respected names in music Jamie XX. Outside of his day job in Mercury Prize winning electronic indie outfit the XX, Jamie is a prolific producer and remixer. His signature combination of haunting melodies and low key club percussion provide the backbone for his work. An active DJ career, collaboration with the late, great Gil Scott-Heron, production work for rap heavyweight Drake and a series of remixes for Radiohead are an indicator of exactly how diverse an artist he has become.
Surely one of the most hyped and eagerly anticipated albums of 2014 already is forthcoming from Neneh Cherry with RocketNumberNine. Produced by man-of-the-moment FourTet, with guests such as Robyn featuring, it is Neneh's first solo album in 17 years. Neneh also has a special affinity with Bristol, having been amongst the first to champion the 'Wild Bunch' who later became 'Massive Attack', lending them her studio many years ago that enabled the recording of the seminal 'Blue Lines'. This is going to be a pretty special Bristol show for us all.
Paul Woolford's Special Request moniker was launched in March 2012 via two bold white label 12" singles. The project captures and distils the energy and unruly conventions of UK pirate radio and uses that as a springboard of inspiration for a series of productions that span from heavyweight darkside techno to chaotic, eye of the storm jungle tear-outs. We've long been a fan of Woolford's sets and can't wait to see him perform as the rampant Special Request.
Despite the generations between them, dub production stalwart Adrian Sherwood and fresh-faced dub step producer Pinchhave teamed up to create an incredible clash of heritage dancehall, reggae and modern electronic music. Their set will be highly anticipated as will performances from drum & bass legend Shy FX, bass boy of the moment Dismantle and another of Radio 1's champions of dance music B. Traits. The legendary Greg Wilson will take to the decks at the UK's finest electronic music festival with Gentleman's Dub Club, A Sagittarian, Jus Now, Congo Natty and many others ensuring that festival goers enjoy the very best electronic sounds the globe has to offer.
Love Saves The Day partners with some of Bristol's and the UKs finest clubbing institutions including Just Jack, Futureboogie, The Dance Off, Teachings In Dub, Black Butter, Digital Soundboy, The Blast, Horse Meat Disco and Soul Train.
More names will be added shortly as Love Saves The Day builds upon the legacy it laid down over the past 2 years.

More than anyone else in modern electronic music, Richie Hawtin has made his mark on electronic music by being inventive and relentlessly proving himself to be a true innovator. The one-man mogul behind acclaimed techno imprints Plus 8 & Minus sends constantly evolving signals out all over the world and his DJ reputation has earned him many Best International DJ awards with fans and the music industry. His Plastikman persona has given techno a unique face with a series of four ruthlessly minimal albums of skeletal beauty and his breathtaking live sets have packed dancefloors across the globe, and helped to invent stadium techno. Having performed a rare live set as Plastikman in 2010 in the Slam Tent, he returns to DJ at T in the Park this summer for the first time since 2008.
Swedish techno master Adam Beyer has been spinning a wide range of hiphop, hiphouse, acid and techno since the early 90s. His own hard, percussive and loop oriented style and deft production skills have made him one of the world’s most in demand producer/DJs and his meteoric rise has been cited as one of the catalysts for Swedish techno’s current influence.

The legendary UK duo Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle have travelled far and wide, leaving scorch marks on dance floors across the world and return home to T in the Park for the festival’s 20th year.
Three of the world’s greatest DJ pioneers DJ Sneak, Derrick Carter & Mark Farina (b2b) are sure to deliver a jawdropping set. One of house music’s true pioneers, DJ Sneak’s signature funky filtered disco-influenced house and tough, jacking beats have revolutionised and redefined the genre for well over 15 years. Derrick Carter and Mark Farina are two great pinnacles of Chicago house music's '90s wave, and the three unite for a very special set at T in the Park.
Next up is minimal house and techno connoisseur Nina Kraviz. The Russian producer, singer and DJ made a name for herself through hosting her own night at Moscow’s legendary Club Propaganda before taking her own brand of deep-house and soulful techno on tour, filling the dancefloors across the globe.
Dirtybird boss and tech-funk producer/DJ Claude VonStroke has headlined almost every major club, festival and basement after-party in the world.

Numbers co-founder Jackmaster’s star is rapidly rising, as showcased at parties from his native Glasgow to Berlin to New York, and from superclubs such as Berghain and Fabric to legendary underground warehouse raves. With a new monthly show as part of BBC Radio 1′s In New DJs We Trust series under his belt, he’s sure to receive a local hero’s welcome at T in the Park.
Mired in British dance culture, Joy Orbison's brand of garage-house marries elements of house, two-step, jungle, techno and dubstep and has been attracting major critical acclaim. Alongside the release of the gargantuan Hyph Mngo which was hailed as the most essential purchase of the season and material on his own imprint Doldrums, notorious mixes for Radio 1 and Ministry have well and truly cemented his reputation as one of the UK’s hottest new talents.
Also heading to the Slam Tent this summer are Glasgow’s own DJ/production duo Silicone Soul. They are set to release an album on Soma to mark ten years since their subterranean parallel project and label Darkroom Dubs first unleashed its uniquely idiosyncratic take on house music. Charged with the purest distillation of the edgy early hours spirit from which house music was originally forged, Darkroom Dubs has become renowned for Silicone Soul’s walks on the dark side; the ultimate bastion of deep electronic dance music.
Back for its 17th year at T in the Park, the Slam Tent has an atmosphere second to none, with many more artists to be announced.
