Already announced is Britain’s urban pop superstar, Labrinth. Having taken the nation by storm with his plethora of enormous hits, the ultimate showman will grace Forest Farm with his illustrious fusion of R&B, Hip-Hop and Dubstep.
Also performing will be a true purveyor of UK bass music, Ms Dynamite and Sinead Hartnett, the go to girl for the likes of Wiley andDisclosure laying down vocals on their tracks Walk Away and Boiling.
One of the UK’s most promising new faces, Dot Rotten has been making cyclonic waves across the nation with his sharp lyrics and gritty beats. The unstoppable force will be performing alongside the likes of Oneman, Joker, EZ and Bohdi for what promises to be a storming session on the main stage.
Headlining the High Definition Arena will be the ever prolific Maya Jane Coles. Famed for her absorbing take on house music, the flourishing producer is set to take 2013 by storm with her infectious beats and the eagerly awaited release of her debut album. Chicago born and raised, Lee Foss is one of few DJ’s that have made a definitive impact on the underground house and techno scene over the past few years. Described by DJ Mag as “one of most talented new forces in modern dance music” the Hot Creations label boss is one not to miss this summer. Also out in force will be Bristol resident Eats Everything. Having gained international recognition for his signature brand of bass heavy house, the larger than life producer will join the formidable Justin Martin for a very special back-to-back set.
Famed for their upfront house music and a fanatical thirst for hats, the nation’s favourite clubbing experience, Hat Club joins High Definition for a clubbing extravaganza. Topping the bill will be Hot Creation’s star Miguel Campbell. Having garnered critical recognition for purveying the finest in deep, quality house, the momentous producer remains in relentless demand across the globe. Joining Miguel will be the irrepressible Black Butter boys Gorgon City, Hot Since 82 and hotly tipped Roses Gabor.
This is one Old Skool revival not to miss this summer. The infamous Epidemik will explode onto Forest Farm bringing with them the very best of Jungle, Breaks and Drum and Bass. Featuring a momentous line up including Crissy Criss, Ratpack, Shut Up & Dance and a very special live performance from Peter Bouncer.
High Definition has been acclaimed for its jaw dropping production values, rivaling some of the biggest festivals in the world and unique for a boutique event of this scale. Stakeholders in the festival separately run event production businesses, meaning the festival has exclusive access to some of the best equipment in Europe and is able to bring festival goers sounds and sights other festivals can only dream of.
High-end sound systems by Mustt Audio Ltd, hundreds of meters of LED screen panels, full-colour laser systems, stunning pyrotechnics, Co2 cannons, stadium glitter launchers and hundreds of moving lights, LEDs and generic fixtures all supplied by in-house production team Light Design Ltd, will be illuminating up this Essex skyline this summer.
The High Definition site is easily accessible from Fairlop tube station on the Central Line, just 24 minutes from Liverpool Street station and the last trains leave after the festival has finished making High Definition a viable event for those from the capital and beyond.
